Hal's Revolver - Colt New Service.

In the episode "What hides beneath" when Hal is in the Armory loading up, you can see him put a Colt New Service in his shoulder holster. You can tell by the placement of the little medallion on the grip.

I did a slow frame by frame and you were right the revolver was a Colt New Service --Balin21 18:53 2 June 2012 (CDT)


After watching Episode 6, I'm looking to see if someone can pull screenshots from when Maggie gives Moonblood's character the 92fs Inox, and when Weaver kills the skitter with a Mossberg 590a1 Special Purpose 8-shot with ghost ring sites. Please upload and I will add to the page. Thanks --Gwhysow 17:28, 18 July 2011 (CDT)


According to the web comics the sidearm of Thomas Mason is a .45 Para-Ordnance Nite-Tac.Fitz175 07:44, 30 April 2011 (CDT)

Somebody, Anthony I think, has a Berreta 92 INOX.--Mandolin 09:33, 20 June 2011 (CDT)

Maggie (Sarah Carter) has a Colt Model 733 or 933, couldn't make out the handle. --commando552 16:25, 20 June 2011 (CDT)

Which one was she?--Mandolin 20:10, 20 June 2011 (CDT) It looks like an M733--Mandolin 20:20, 20 June 2011 (CDT)

There was also a PKM and an RPK used by the "good guys" against the outlaws at the end. --commando552 07:04, 21 June 2011 (CDT)

Mason's Type 56-1

Does anyone know what Mason has on the stock of his T56-1? It looks like some sort of tape or something. I'm assuming it's to make it a bit more comfortable to fire from the shoulder. --cool-breeze 18:24, 23 June 2011 (CDT)

Looks like duct tape to me. Adds a little pading to the meatl stock.--Mandolin 08:34, 24 June 2011 (CDT)

The tape effectively turns the back of the stock into more of a oval butt plate rather than a hollow U shape. Unfortunately, this would also mean that it would be impossible to unfold/fold the stock with the magazine in place. --commando552 11:45, 24 June 2011 (CDT)

I did think to myself that it would obstruct the folding of the stock. --cool-breeze 14:31, 24 June 2011 (CDT)

I've just realised something, on the description it says that the Type 56-1 was a Chinese version of the AKMS, I thought that it was a Chinese version of the original AKS47 due to the grips, muzzle brake, top cover and handgrip? --cool-breeze 17:01, 11 April 2012 (CDT)

The original Type 56 was a milled receiver gun and was essentially an AK-47 with the folding bayonet added. When the AKM was introduced, the Chinese updated the Type 56 with the AKM stamped receiver but kept the typical AK-47 furniture, top cover, gas tube and (hooded) front sight. The main "functional" part of a later model Type 56 (the stamped receiver) is from the AKM, so that is what I would say it is based on. --commando552 17:21, 11 April 2012 (CDT)
Ah right, thanks :) --cool-breeze 01:04, 12 April 2012 (CDT)

Clip vs. Mag

Just watching it now and that was the first time I've seen someone get corrected on calling a magazine a clip in a film or TV programme ever. Nice little touch. So far this series has a lot of promise. --cool-breeze 18:29, 23 June 2011 (CDT)

Maggie's 1911

I caught a re-run of the premier episode and after getting a good look at it, I'm pretty sure that Maggie's 1911 is a Colt Gold Cup National match judging by the sights and slide serrations. ShootingLiberal 02:14, 29 June 2011 (CDT)

That's what I thought at first, but then noted the Classic Bo-Mar sights. Used to own at NM that had the Colt slant-adjustables. Made the edit, and corrected Mason. Good catch on the Colt, ShootingLibera! --Gwhysow 15:34, 9 July 2011 (CDT)

Logistical concerns

Alien invasion basically throws the rules out the window I guess but why are Kalashnikov rifles, firing in full auto mind you, more abundant than AR-15 pattern rifles/carbines and other more common sporting and military surplus firearms? It's Boston; Colt and S&W are right down the road...

AKs are more rebellious, I guess. Evil Tim 11:36, 8 July 2011 (CDT)
I guess. Wolverines. They were more prominent in the pilot so it could have been a budget thing.

7.62mm round is a lot more powerful than a 5.56 so that could be one of the reasons. Also they're a lot more reliable and require less maintenance. --cool-breeze 14:59, 8 July 2011 (CDT)

Aside from the main character, who uses either an AKM or Type 56, all of the other protagonists seems to use either 5.56mm rifles or 9mm SMGs. --commando552 18:12, 8 July 2011 (CDT)

The screencaps don't illustrate my point too well but you're right, besides the main guy and one or two others it hasn't been fired all that much on screen though plenty of background guys pulling security duty have AKs. It seems to me that the main and secondary characters got the pick of the litter and the rest got whatever they had left available...

I could just be nitpicking again, it's a great show so far

I did do a little bit of nitpicking when discussing this about the full auto AKs. Excalibur01 01:16, 9 July 2011 (CDT) Bold text

I just watched this show, and the OP is exaggerating. The vast majority of the rebels seem to use M16s, M4s, and other AR variants, not AKs. And Tom Mason is the only main character who uses an AK (or rather, two different AKs). -MT2008 11:35, 29 April 2012 (CDT)

Harness kid guns?

Just wondering if anyone's working on categorizing what the harnessed kids were shooting.

Thought I saw an MP5 Tactical and a couple other "common" SMGs and assault rifles.

I don't consider this a spoiler by this point, so why not go ahead and post 'em?

I saw a AK gun with drum magazine.

I count six kids. Two of them use AKs fitted with rail forearms, M4 stocks, and drum mags. Two others use MP5s with tri-rail forearms and vertical grips. The last two use SIG SG 552s fitted with rails and vertical grips. -MT2008 11:36, 29 April 2012 (CDT)

Tom's AKM

I think it should be pointed out in the article that Tom switches to the AKM after losing his Type 56 in an early episode.

survivor's gun

i just watched the final episode again and discovered there was a shotgun and what look liked a ruger mini 14 in a female warrior's hands.

I have discovered that in the episode eight hours for a few seconds i noticed a few more guns. I believe there were two FN Fal with pictanny sights and with Knights Armament Company RAS and also behind the guy who tried to shoot Matt one of the fighters might be equipped with what looks like a Springfield 1903.
