Several times throughout the second season several sicarios are seen armed with the Para Ordnance Model 85. Which is, in fact, an automatic paintball (labelled a 'dye marker') manufactured in the 1980s and was intended as a training tool for military and law enforcement agencies.
During the scenes showing Colombian troops raiding various cocaine labs the soldiers are armed with M4A1 carbines mounted with ACOG scopes. The M4 did not enter front line service with the US military until the early 90s and the ACOG until the mid 2000s. Narcos is largely set during the 1980s.
