Can any body tell me why the guy said that the Remington 700 is used by the Marines. cause i'm pretty sure its not. User:SargeOverkill

No your right, the Marines use the M40 for their standard bolt action rifle. The newest they use is the M40A5.--MarineCorps1 22:58, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the M40 based on the 700 action? That may have been what they meant.

No ur correct, the M40 and 700 are based on the same action, but the M40 is just the Military version of the 700. Look up the Remington 700 and M40 on the website.--MarineCorps1 22:19, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Gotcha. i think it goes like this: the M40 series is based of the M24 which is based on the Rem. 700. something confusing, right?User:SargeOverkill

No Your correct, all the same basic rifle, just used by different people whether military, police, or civilian.--MarineCorps1 11:19, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Added some screens. More to come tomorrow. --VRazer2 21:19, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Sweet! I love this show User:SargeOverkill

Why didn't Frank have more experience with the Beretta, considering his police background? Was he just a bad shooter?

I don't blame him, I hate Berettas. He must have been out of his game. -User:SargeOverkill

Added a lot of new screens. Need someone to positively ID the 1887, revolvers and the lever action rifles. There's probably not going to be a lot of firearms in the longbow episode, so I'm probably not going to add any more screens for some time. --VRazer2 19:34, 18 June 2010 (UTC)


Forgot: Tell me if you want me to stop with the personal opinions/comments in the image descriptions, or if you want me to continue. I don't see them on a lot of pages, but I really think they make it more exciting than just simple facts. --VRazer2 19:37, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

The comments are okay, there use to be a problem with users bashing actors gun handling skills, but the people on the show are professionals. --Predator20 19:54, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

This was taken from a web video of Jim's introduction to the pistol. Would it not be more ideal to call it by it's real name? --Crazycrankle 13:40, 4 July 2010 (UTC)

I agree. Could you add your picture to the page and rename it? --VRazer2 20:13, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

Beretta 92F vs. 92FS

The shininess of the grips is not a good way to tell whether or not the guns are 92Fs or FSs in this case, since most of the pictures we have aren't the highest quality, and all kinds of lighting changes can be done in post production. Grips can be changed easily too. I do know at least one of the pistols was a 92F because the rear sight did not have the two dots on it as seen on the 92FS, it had the single white line seen on the 92F and it' predecessors. They might have used several pistols, but that one was a 92F. --Yournamehere 22:19, 11 August 2010 (UTC)


The M14 rifle never was designed to be fully automatic. It was a semi-automatic rifle used in Vietnam. They were also used as semi-auto sniper rifles as well.

Actually, it could fire full-auto.

The M1A could fire fully automatic. Technically the M14 is the civilian version and cannot fire fully automatic. So you're both kinda wrong. --Subiefan98 00:54, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Isn't it the other way around? --Crazycrankle 02:32, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Yes, it is. The M1A is the current production, semi-automatic civilian version of the M14, manufactured by Springfield Armory. The original M14s were full on, full automatic assault rifles. --Yournamehere 04:48, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Season 2

I believe the history channel is looking for shooters for season 2. Anyone here planning on trying out?

I know that the auditions due date is up but just wondering if anybody here might do it in the future. Would be pretty cool. I have almost no experience compared to what the contestants had, even Kelly who is a few years older than me has a hell lot more experience so I doubt I would be able to try at the rate I'm visiting the range which is almost none. --ThePotShot 14:50, 16 August 2010 (UTC)


Congrats to Iain for winning Top Shot. Was rooting for JJ though.--ThePotShot 02:10, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

I was really suprised JJ didn't land a single shot during the 21-esque challenge. I was hoping he'd win too. That's One Angry Duck 03:31, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

I wasn't hoping for anyone to win up to the second to last challenge, but I thought for sure JJ would win it all. He shot himself in the foot when he decided his challenge and couldn't even complete it. After that the other two exploited the hell out of his weaknesses and thus a world ranked shooter got knocked off. After that I was pulling for Iain since is he lives here in Oregon and he makes Captain Price look like, well, a fictional character. Glad to see it go to him.--Yournamehere 05:08, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Oregon yes, but according to wikipedia he lives near Portland. As a Salem resident I question whether that truly counts ;) -Anonymous

He still lives here, in the state of Oregon, so my statement is valid. Hope you had fun splitting that hair buddy. --Yournamehere 06:45, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

I realize that, however, just as many southerners consider Atlanta "fake south" I sometime joke about Portland being "Fake Oregon." -Anonymous

We need more Iains in the world. -- K 09:56, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Wait, YOU live in Salem? I live in Salem too so I thought you were referring to me and making a joke at my expense. Now it makes sense. --Yournamehere 22:57, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Jim's Stance

2 questions about Jim's stance:

During practice- Wouldnt Jim's stance with the stock not even touching his shoulder throw the rifle completely off target so it would be bad for long range shooting as well?

During team challenge- Would holding the magazine help with the recoil at all, not for Just a 5.56, but for any magazine fed rifle.

I've seen and tried both of Jim's stances before. In the end it all comes down to preference. The first stance Jim shows is normally only used for longer range competion. Longer range competition is normally focused more on accuracy than speed, not close up and fast as shown so he would be accurate, just slow as shown during the episode, Jim was able to hit every target accurately during practice, but slowly. The second stance with Jim holding the magazine may help recoil for some people, but it felt odd for me because Im used to holding the handguard. Like I said before, in the end it all comes down to preference of the shooter.--MarineCorps1 04:17, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

Thumbs Forward on Beretta

I tried that grip at the range yesterday and it was decent on controlling the recoil, but the slide didnt lock back after the last round. I thought my slide release was broken. -The Winchester

Yea, thats a common problem for people new to the technique. Youve either got to keep your thumb in the air above the SR, or under it against the frame (I prefer the latter).-Ranger01 23:34, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

I switched back to the weaver, which i was taught how to do, and i returned to punching out the center. All about preference. -The Winchester

the new season

Now that season 2 has began and is two episodes in, is there gonna be a new page devoted to season 2, since the new season is called Top Shot Reloaded, or are the firearms used in the new season going to go on the existing page?

So far, the weapons they have used are a Colt 1911A1 for one of the challenges, and a Smith & Wesson 44 magnum, similar to the one Clint Eastwood used in "Dirty Harry" for the first elimination challenge. In the second episode, the team challenge utilizes a Colt Official Police revolver, as the episode was themed in the Prohibition Era. In the elimination challenge, a Thompson Sub-machine gun was used. Also, in the nomination range, the pistol they use has change from a Beretta 92F to a stainless 1911 pistol. In the preview for the upcoming 3rd episode, contestants appear to use the M14 rifle.

colt 1991a1, smith 29, m1a rifle, colt gold cup for voting, got a 10 rounder in it.

season 2 is now over, and since then, they have also used the Sig Sauer P228, Browning Hi-Power, AR-15, FN FAL, .22 Ruger rifle, Ruger Security Six .357, a .22 Smith and Wesson revolver, Barret .50 cal, and the M1 Garand

Anyone going to take the reins on Season 3??? --Zackmann08 23:57, 3 December 2011 (CST)

Season 3

I have started to add the guns from season 3. I am working from wikipedia at the moment (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Top_Shot_%28Season_3%29) but will eventually be re-watching the season to get screen caps and confirm all the information. --Zackmann08 23:30, 4 December 2011 (CST)

Separate Pages

With Season 3 now over and at least one more season on the way, any thoughts on splitting this page into separate pages for each season? I've seen this done with other shows such as 24 and Hawaii Five-O. --Zackmann08 11:44, 5 December 2011 (CST)

Went ahead and made an executive decision... --Zackmann08 22:29, 5 December 2011 (CST)

Season 5

I have direct confirmation from Colby himself... There will be a season 5! They have finished shooting it (pun intended). Just waiting on post production. --Zackmann08 (talk) 14:02, 16 October 2012 (EDT)
