Mami's Rifles - Flintlock or Percussion?
Looking back at the series, I'm not convinced the rifles are flintlocks as the page states. The fact that the action looks like this:
Suggests to me that they're some sort of magical equivalent to the Percussion Cap action instead. The Wierd It (talk) 06:37, 9 March 2013 (EST)
I agree. In addition, they're referred to as "percussion-lock rifled muskets" almost everywhere I've seen them. The series director confirmed in a tweet that they can only be fired once, and are capable of firing shotgun shells as well. Winterd (talk) 00:39, 12 January 2015 (CST)
Just a heads-up, the continuation movie adds some new weapons to Homura's arsenal. The following list is what I managed to catch. Skorpion vz.61 Beretta 92 Inox MG34/42 (couldn't tell) with assault drums Glock 17
Of course, screenies will come whenever the BD is out. --HashiriyaR32 (talk) 18:09, 17 December 2013 (EST)
Speaking of Rebellion, I've made an album containing pictures of all guns used in Rebellion with identification done by a friend. (except pistol 3, which has yet to be identify) Feel free to double check and post it on the page, as it still hasn't been updated for Rebellion.

- Can see a couple of errors in that album, at least the last image labelled as a Cougar is a Heckler & Koch P7, and the CZ83 along with at least the 2nd unidentified is a Walther P5. --commando552 (talk) 04:11, 6 April 2014 (EDT)
- Fixed. I guess I went under the false assumption that they wouldn't switch any of the guns offscreen or repeat, as with the rest of the guns, it's clearly shown when Homura drops and gets a new gun. I actually think the switch in guns between Pistol 2 and Pistol 3 are errors, because if you see this picture, http://i.imgur.com/Sz4QAom.jpg, she still wields the Cougar while falling down, but when she hits the bottom, she has a P7. Same thing with Pistol 4 and 5. She holds Pistol 4 while pointing it at Mami, holding her arm up at her, but a cut later, she's still holding her gun at Mami, arm not moved from that position, but she's holding a P5 instead. A switch was never indicated or implied. She actually throws that one out and pulls out ANOTHER P5, which I find odd. Also, Pistol 4 has still yet to be identified.
