Now, HAPPY EDITING! Zackmann08 (talk) 19:51, 24 November 2012 (EST)

Elfen Lied edit

Two things; 1.) please try to use proper grammar and punctuation, and 2.) make sure any additional images you add to pages are placed under the correct listing. The MP5 in that screencap does not have an M203 attachment, ergo it does not belong under the "with M203 attachment" listing. Also, try to avoid spoilers, such as mentioning that Kamuzawa isn't human.--PistolJunkie (talk) 20:07, 14 December 2012 (EST)

Okay, look; the whole video game tidbit is some fun trivia, but it's not part of the show and its not a piece of promo media like a trailer. As such, it needs to go on it's own page. Also, you put the MAC-10 in the "Rifles" listing. Do you see anything wrong with that?--PistolJunkie (talk) 14:26, 3 January 2013 (EST)
I'm sorry, if doing something wrong. I don't understand you. You say, that I should create a new article to this game I shall create this page. But, why I cant put information of this game to the section at the main article?--Pyramid Silent (talk) 03:22, 5 January 2013 (EST)
Because the game and the show are not the same thing by any means. And on top of that, you listed a submachine gun as a rifle. Also, do you have anay further information about this game? Because judging from the screencap and the graphics I'm suspecting that it's not even an official licensed game, and fanmade games are not allowed on IMFDB.--PistolJunkie (talk) 17:35, 6 January 2013 (EST)
It's not a fanmade game. I have official site of the company, who created this game, but I can't read japanese. If it necessary, I shall create article for this game, but in this game Mac-10 is the only firearm, that can be identified.--Pyramid Silent (talk) 06:49, 7 January 2013 (EST)


In the future, please find higher quality sources for your screenshots (DVD or Blu-ray) please. --Ben41 (talk) 18:11, 9 January 2013 (EST)

I'm sorry, but I didn't found this film in a good quality.--Pyramid Silent (talk) 18:30, 9 January 2013 (EST)

The Marsh

We're working on identifying the revolver now. Meanwhile, we have an entire gallery of Derringers, so get cracking. --Funkychinaman (talk) 16:07, 4 June 2013 (EDT)

Aside from working a bit harder to actually identify the guns, two things: 1) Please use unique file names, like "TheMarsh_revolver_01.jpg" or something like that, and 2) Please try not to give away any plot points in your descriptions. --Funkychinaman (talk) 16:39, 4 June 2013 (EDT)
Ok, and thank you very much for identifying revolver. I can't identify the submachine gun, but I know that a very rare model of this type of arms equipped the optical sight. Pyramid Silent (talk) 16:45, 4 June 2013 (EDT)

Night of the Dead

Please take s moment to crop and reupload "Night of the Dead gun 2.jpg." Thanks. --Funkychinaman (talk) 09:11, 22 July 2013 (EDT)

OK--Pyramid Silent (talk) 13:10, 23 July 2013 (EDT)

Making Pages

I understand that you may have problems with English, but please try your best to check your spelling and grammar for the pages that you create. It would be best to not write film descriptions at the top as they are very confusing to read. You also do not need to list how many firearms were used in the movie. The page for The Hitchhiker has been changed for your future reference. --Ben41 (talk) 14:12, 24 July 2013 (EDT)

Sorry for my English, I'm from Russia. I can't find mistake in my pages, because my English is very bad T_T. I have some question about The Hitchhiker film. You wrote that firearms in this film are non gun. Are you shure? I saw a fire when the shooter fires his gun. If this guns were a replicas it couldn't be load an ammo even blank. I can't understand: are the gunshot fire was made by computer or it was a reali gunshot.--Pyramid Silent (talk) 16:09, 24 July 2013 (EDT)
A Non Gun is a replica that emits a flashpaper spark that resembles a muzzle flash, and is less dangerous than firing a real blank. It may be hard to read with an online translator, but I have corrected the English grammar on The Hitchhiker page. Please use this if you make future pages. --Ben41 (talk) 17:22, 24 July 2013 (EDT)

The Hitcher II

Sorry, but your source for the film appears to be of very bad quality so identification is very difficult. The ejection port for the Mossberg is more like a rectangle and the Remington 870 is rounded at the ends. Take a look at the pictures on the 12 Gauge Pump Shotgun page for more comparison. Those screenshots of the revolvers are very similar to the S&W Model 10. --Ben41 (talk) 04:45, 26 July 2013 (EDT)

The screenshots you reuploaded for this film are much better. Thank you. --Ben41 (talk) 23:32, 29 December 2013 (EST)

Medicopter 117 - Jedes Leben zählt

Is Medicopter 117 - Jedes Leben zählt - film a movie version of the series? Do you plan on doing pages for the series as well?

Please do not make a template unless you plan on doing this.

Also, you need to cut off the black bars on the left and right of your screen shots. --Ben41 (talk) 04:18, 7 August 2013 (EDT)

This is a film, which was made as prequel to the first season of this serial (a pilot film). I have the first, second and third seasons and this film. This series contain one film and seven seasons, but another four seasons weren't translated to russian and I can't find it. But, I want creates articles to the film and three seasons, so I created this template. Pyramid Silent (talk) 05:48, 7 August 2013 (EDT)
Please pay attention to your words. You are leaving out letters that are making it very frustrating to correct. Also, a few more things to remember:

1. Descriptions are written above the image of the gun.

2. Bombs and Explosives are not to be included on the page as these are generally fake. Grenades are okay to put on the page.

3. Images that are not widescreen should be at 500px, not 600px.

I have corrected the pages for your future reference. Please also refer to the IMFDB Screencapping Guide and the IMFDB Style Guide. If you are able to use it, I would recommend downloading and trying VLC player for playback and screen capture. --Ben41 (talk) 18:31, 7 August 2013 (EDT)

I'm sorry, but I don't understand a few things.

1) You wrote, that grenades are may be useful on the articles. At the third season are exist a lot of mines. If i shall add it to the my future article, I shall do something wrong? 2) You wrote, that my images should be at 500px, not high. I don't understand, I should scaling my images or not? And may I don't scaling image with Paint, but use |thumb|none|500px|]] not high? Also, for I used GomPlayer or Windows Media Player for watching films, and button Print Screen for capturing image. I'm sorry, but I can't download VLC player, because I have a very lowspeed internet T_T Pyramid Silent (talk) 05:06, 9 August 2013 (EDT)

VLC and FastStone Image Viewer would improve the quality of your screencaps. As we pointed out in the screencapping guide, both are free and have portable versions available. Combined, they're only 27 MBs to download, so even if you were on a 56K modem, it should only take a bit more than an hour. --Funkychinaman (talk) 10:37, 9 August 2013 (EDT)
I understand, that this programs can help me to improve the quality of the screenshots, but my all my DVD copys are unlicensed and it is a very bad quality, so this programs are useless. Pyramid Silent (talk) 05:59, 10 August 2013 (EDT)
Please do not use unlicensed DVD's for your screenshots because as you mentioned they are usually of bad quality. --Ben41 (talk) 14:16, 13 August 2013 (EDT)
Colleague Pyramid Silent, If you need help with screencapping in Windows Media Player, I can help. I allways use this programm and have good results. If you wish you can email me on gereint at gmail.com, so we'll discuss this problem in Russian. Greg-Z (talk) 15:23, 13 August 2013 (EDT)
Thank you very much! When I shall come to the Moscow (now I stay at the village) I shall use a high speed internet. At those time I can email you, and download useful program. Pyramid Silent (talk) 07:07, 22 August 2013 (EDT)


You're not using a camrip, are you? --Funkychinaman (talk) 12:52, 13 August 2013 (EDT)

Movie Sources

The sources you are using for your screenshots do not appear to be High Definition or High Quality DVD's. Please do not use any more low quality sources for your screenshots. --Ben41 (talk) 11:38, 23 August 2013 (EDT)

Sorry me for using bad quality images. When I shall come to Moscow (at the present time, I stay in the village), I shall use high speed internet. At those time, I shall find a better sourses and reupload some bad quality images to better quality. Pyramid Silent (talk) 07:46, 24 August 2013 (EDT)

The Skeleton Key

I've changed the movie page for The Skeleton Key with improved screenshots. These were taken from the American DVD using VLC player. Use the page for future reference on how a proper movie page should look. Please do not do a new movie page if the quality of screenshots cannot meet these standards. --Ben41 (talk) 14:27, 23 August 2013 (EDT)

Pirahna and others

Hi! As I said before, you can email me if you need any help. And as a good advice: don't use the word "download" when it concerns the movies. :) I think you understand why it is. :) Greg-Z (talk) 13:44, 7 September 2013 (EDT)

Please email me: [email protected]. Any language except English isn't welcome here on discussion pages, so I'll remove the text that you've put in Russian. I'll examine the Medicopter page but I haven't seen this TV series so it will be hard to say something. Greg-Z (talk) 14:18, 7 September 2013 (EDT)

Medicopter Season 3

I looked through the page. The first pistol has grip safety so it is M1911A1, not M1911. The third pistol is not a Walther but a Heckler & Koch P9S. Jorge's pistol is also M1911A1. Karl Krebs' pistol is also a Heckler & Koch P9S. HK MP5s look more like standard MP5A5s rather than suppressed MP5SD - they are fitted with underbarrel devices (flashlights, I suppose) so the barrels look thicker. Greg-Z (talk) 14:30, 7 September 2013 (EDT)


Please just edit the files and add {{nuke}} to those files and someone will get to them. Thanks. --Funkychinaman (talk) 14:27, 18 September 2013 (EDT)


For the film Student, please do not place screenshots that reveal unnecessary spoilers or do not show the weapon. --Ben41 (talk) 17:01, 2 November 2013 (EDT)

The Fog

If you are going to do pages for American films or series, please find better sources for your screenshots. These should either be in High Definition (720p or 1080p) and from a DVD. --Ben41 (talk) 16:20, 18 November 2013 (EST)

Samurai Films

Please do not make any more pages for samurai film. You have made several pages for these films, and you've shown that only one firearm is used and it's the same weapon for every film. These films were basically known for their sword fighting and not firearms. Unless there is a different more recognizable weapon seen in the film, any more pages for samurai films that you make will be deleted. --Ben41 (talk) 20:34, 29 November 2013 (EST)

No Improvised Firearm Page

Sorry, but do NOT make a page for improvised firearms. Pages are for actual firearms, and "improvised firearm" is too broad a category. If there is something worth mentioning, you can add a comment about it in the movie page's discussion section. --Ben41 (talk) 19:05, 4 December 2013 (EST)


We've mentioned this several times already, but if you're going to continue creating pages, you're going to have to find a better source for screenshots. --Funkychinaman (talk) 15:18, 22 December 2013 (EST)

It's not a bad source for screenshot. This film was originally filmed in the dark tones and low resolution, because, it's a horror film. Pyramid Silent (talk) 15:27, 22 December 2013 (EST)
Nearly every one of the American horror films you made pages for have had terrible screenshots that had to be replaced. Any more American horror films that you create that have poor quality screenshots will be immediately deleted. --Ben41 (talk) 22:43, 27 December 2013 (EST)


I'm from Ukraine and I wanted to thank you for working on many good horror films, especially from Slasher genre and especially Shtolnya, because there are not so many Ukrainian movies here, unfortunately (I'm also working to include a few more Soviet, Ukrainian and Russian ones). I also own a big collection of licensed DVD's and probably can help you to screencap some of the articles properly. So if you'll need something like this - you can ask. --Kloga (talk) 15:38, 22 December 2013 (EST)

OK! Thanks. If you want, you can give me your e-mail, and we can continue our talk in russian or ukrainian. Pyramid Silent (talk) 15:49, 22 December 2013 (EST)
there was an e-mail (I'll delete as you'll write something). --Kloga (talk) 16:20, 22 December 2013 (EST)

Desert Punk

Would you be able to finish the page for Desert Punk before moving on to other pages? The previous incarnation of the page mentioned 33 distinct firearms, and you only have ten. (See the discussion page.) The older page was deleted for not having screenshots, so the OP could've been mistaken, but that's still a big difference. --Funkychinaman (talk) 12:05, 23 December 2013 (EST)

Yes, I do not include all firearm into those article, but it was in the bad quality or were not show all, only some parts like barrel or butt. Pyramid Silent (talk) 12:10, 23 December 2013 (EST)
There are many, many more firearms in this that are identifiable and shown in their entirety. I have this series in better quality (I capped the first 10 or so episodes a while ago but got distracted on other things) so if you are unable to finish it I will push this to the top of my list and get it done. Just looking through my caps of episode one, I can see the Winchester, a Browning HP, a Walther P38, a MAC 10, an Uzi, a PPSH, AR-15 Sporter carbines, FN FALs, RPG-7s, Thompsons, AK-47s, an L96 and a Colt SAA, all of which are fully seen and identifiable. If you cannot identify a weapon, that put caps of it on the discussion page and more likely that not other users will be able to identify it for you. In the future, please only start pages that you intend to finish as it is not fair to expect somebody else to do it for you. You did exactly the same thing with the Najica Blitz Tactics page where you only listed it as having 12 guns, and then when I went through and recapped it for better resolution I round there were 40 or so. Also, when making a page for a series please identify what episodes the weapons are used in, as well as including the episode name in the image files, such as "File:Desert Punk Episode 1 001.jpg" or something along those lines. --commando552 (talk) 12:47, 23 December 2013 (EST)
Ok Pyramid Silent (talk) 12:50, 23 December 2013 (EST)

Burn Up! page

I'm not sure why you felt a need to dead-link to the three other series and then mention you're personal familiarity with the franchise on the top of the page, but please don't do that again.--PistolJunkie (talk) 11:41, 24 December 2013 (EST)

Don't worry. I have DVD Burn-Up W and probably create article fo those anime too Pyramid Silent (talk) 12:09, 24 December 2013 (EST)
I was more reffering to the fact that you decided to reference your personal viewing history on the front of a page. And then mislabeled a one-shot OVA as a television series (Google is your friend). I try to make sure that any pages I make are up to site standards. I don't appreciate having them messed up.--PistolJunkie (talk) 16:41, 26 December 2013 (EST)

Skaz o Rozovom Zaitse

The Nambu doesn't have a full underlug, nor is it stainless. --Funkychinaman (talk) 17:14, 31 December 2013 (EST)


Please try to avoid including spoilers on your pages. --Funkychinaman (talk) 13:09, 1 January 2014 (EST)

I'm sorry, if my articles contain spoilers, but I don't know how I can show film story without it. Pyramid Silent (talk) 13:13, 1 January 2014 (EST)
That's just it, we're not here to describe the plot of the film, we're here to describe the guns used. --Funkychinaman (talk) 13:19, 1 January 2014 (EST)

Solomon Kane

If your screenshots are of good quality, then yes. But be aware that it could be subject to review if it's not up to the IMFDB standards. --Ben41 (talk) 13:59, 2 January 2014 (EST)


Ummm, yeah, that IS a bit unusual. If you feel you can't control yourself, then fine, I'll do it. Good luck on your exams. --Funkychinaman (talk) 13:02, 5 January 2014 (EST)

Your pages

-What is a "capsule pistol?"
-You keep using level 3 subheadings. Please go over the IMFDB Style Guide again. I've been fixing them for you, but you haven't been noticing.
-Was Medicopter 117 ever released on DVD? The TV watermark is a bit distracting.

--Funkychinaman (talk) 04:16, 22 January 2014 (EST)

In watermark you mean "prima"? My friend give me DVD disk with this series on the czech language by the prima TV channel, when he return from the Czech republic.

I use level 3 subheadings, because this article contain a very big types of varios firearms.

I wrote capsule pistol, means muzzle-loading pistol, that used Blasting cap (in Russian it named "capsule") for shooting. Like this rifle. Pyramid Silent (talk) 04:33, 22 January 2014 (EST)

The term is percussion cap pistol. And it's called "cap" because it literally caps the "nipple" leading to the chamber and it not short for capsule. Please change the headings to match our standards. Thanks. --Funkychinaman (talk) 04:37, 22 January 2014 (EST)
I'm sorry, I don't understand, where I shall changing headings: on Samurai Champloo, or Medicopter 117? Pyramid Silent (talk) 04:43, 22 January 2014 (EST)
Medicopter. --Funkychinaman (talk) 04:52, 22 January 2014 (EST)
The Glock looks a bit weird, and you have to fix the headings again, but otherwise, it looks okay. --Funkychinaman (talk) 14:15, 27 January 2014 (EST)

Fritz Karl's revolver

The revolver on the screenshot on Fritz Karl page is no way a Nagant. I would guess that it is a Smith & Wesson Model 686. Greg-Z (talk) 11:44, 28 January 2014 (EST)


Oh boy, the last one was a doozy. I think the only IDs that were correct are the S&W 686 and the Uzi. Just to start, the first two caps of the Glock are USPs, while the fourth clearly shows a hammer. The PP is a PPK, and the Hi-Power is an M1911. The Stechkin has to be wrong, you can see the frame mounted safety in the cap. The S&W 681 and the S&W 10 appear to be the same revolver, but neither of the IDs are correct. The first cap of the O/U shotgun clearly shows two pump action shotguns, while the others show a scope, which makes me believe it's some sort of O/U rifle instead. The Winchester 1300 looks like maybe a Mossberg 500. The unknown SMG is just an Uzi. And once again, your subheadings are the wrong size. --Funkychinaman (talk) 16:26, 7 February 2014 (EST)

As it seems to me, the revolver, IDed as S&W 681, seems to have a vent rib over the barrel and looks mostly like a Taurus Model 689 while the second revolver in Ep. 1 lacks vent rib and has a different rear sight. Also it looks blued while the first one seems to be stainless. My guess for the second revolver is Smith & Wesson Model 586. Ludwig Reiter's pistol is definitly not an APS but rather an M1911-style pistol. The O/U gun resembles a Brno Model ZH-344 or Brno Stopper or Valmet Model 412 (maybe some other rifle or rifle/shotgun combo). Greg-Z (talk) 02:21, 8 February 2014 (EST)
BTW, the rocket launcher is M72 LAW. Greg-Z (talk) 08:52, 8 February 2014 (EST)

Case of Akiyoshi Umekawa.

He is 1970s's Criminal. I looked I don't know well. He committed a robbery murder at the age of 15. The bank made ​​a siege incident at the time of the 31-year-old, He is shot dead.

If I examine the erotic him, I found the movie "TATTOO<刺青>あり(There is a tattoo)". This film is a work depicting his upbringing. However, the case of the bank is not drawn, his name has also been changed. The film Trailer

Record videoNHK Official page

Personally, too, I can not recommend this Movie. I think personally, and it is the work of the Japanese Red Armyand United Red Army's movie-related match to this IMFDB. Japanese Red Army is a terrorist organization on behalf of Japan, is a case to be taken up next to the Aum Shinrikyo even now. -- KINKI'boy 20:10, 4 March 2014 (JST)

Do NOT create a page for that film. --Ben41 (talk) 14:44, 4 March 2014 (EST)

Ok. Pyramid Silent (talk) 15:06, 4 March 2014 (EST)

Umekawa was mass murderer. Since it seems there was a misunderstanding, I'll explain. He wasn't Oumu and Red Army. He used 12 gauge double barrelled shotgun is Miroku's gun ? -- KINKI'boy 11:43, 5 March 2014 (JST)

Afro Samurai

I suspect the Afro Samurai page was deleted for lack of effort. I've seen it, I would've deleted it as well. --Funkychinaman (talk) 15:01, 6 March 2014 (EST)

So, may I recreate this article or it's useless? Pyramid Silent (talk) 16:15, 6 March 2014 (EST)
It appears otherwise eligible. --Funkychinaman (talk) 16:19, 6 March 2014 (EST)
I'm sorry, if you can, please recreate this page in my sandbox (and give me link to it, please) Pyramid Silent (talk) 16:27, 6 March 2014 (EST)
here--Funkychinaman (talk) 17:38, 6 March 2014 (EST)
Oh, sorry, I thought you just wanted the page created. Hold on. --Funkychinaman (talk) 04:17, 7 March 2014 (EST)
YES. AT THE TIME of it's deletion it was a no effort page with minimal work. You guys don't have to automatically assume there some sort of evil and nefarious reason why old pages were deleted. The most common reason is that they were bullshit pages and they sucked (i.e. the work that went into the page, not the title itself). If we have a gun heavy page like "Heat" but instead it had a few gun descriptions, no pictures (at least no good ones) and it stayed like that for weeks, you can be SURE that it would be deleted. But good pages that are well done and held to the style code of IMFDB are welcome. MoviePropMaster2008 (talk) 23:13, 10 March 2014 (EDT)

Russia 88

I doubt that the pistol is M1911, it has a different spur. Though it can be some version of 1911, or some other pistol. Sorry, it's hard to say anything for sure. The revolver is also hard to identify but a Nagant is an enough reasonable guess. Greg-Z (talk) 11:25, 16 March 2014 (EDT)

Please try to avoid spoilers. --Funkychinaman (talk) 15:17, 16 March 2014 (EDT)
You can just stick with "<character> uses a <weapon>" and leave it at that. --Funkychinaman (talk) 16:25, 16 March 2014 (EDT)
I'm guessing it's some sort of M1911 as well. As I said, there are a lot of spoilers on the page. --Funkychinaman (talk) 19:04, 16 March 2014 (EDT)

Inland Empire

I don't know where you get your english language movies, but the quality is very bad. Please find another way to get your English movies. How are you capturing the screenshots? Please try VLC player to capture screenshots in the future. --Ben41 (talk) 18:13, 21 March 2014 (EDT)

By my count, this is the SEVENTH time we've brought up poor quality of your screenshots. I can assure you that it will be the last. If you can't get a good copy of the film, then we'd prefer you not create a page at all. As it says in the Rules, "Quality, NOT Quantity." If you can't adhere by that, we will have to take corrective action. Thank you. --Funkychinaman (talk) 18:47, 21 March 2014 (EDT)
Inland Empire was filmed on digital video with intentionally moderate quality. I have seen this film of Blu-Ray and 1920x1040 version doesn't seem to have better quality that a 720x480 one. Greg-Z (talk) 13:02, 22 March 2014 (EDT)
I do not think that this is solely the reason for the quality looking bad (a lot of the other movies capped by Pyramid Silent have poor quality even when this is not a gimmick of the film). The resolution of the caps is 688x367 which is not a legitimate resolution for and SD or HD releases that I have ever heard of so my guess is that it is a bootleg of some sort. Based on the fact that it came from Russia I imagine that most likely it is an R5 release which, although legal as they are released by the studio, are rushed out to try and avoid illegal bootlegs so therefore can have pretty crappy quality. They are not necessarily done that well and have none of the post-processing that would be found on a Western release or a later more "legitimate" region 5 one. --commando552 (talk) 13:42, 22 March 2014 (EDT)
Also, that gun wasn't even close to looking like a Stechkin. If you are not sure what a gun is, rather than just taking a random guess it is best to either label it as an unknown gun, or in the case of a film such as this where there is only the one gun start a topic on the main discussion page as if there is only one unidentifiable gun the piece of media is potentially not eligible. --commando552 (talk) 18:43, 21 March 2014 (EDT)
Pyramid Silent, if the film quality is intentional, you need to mention this in the summary. See the revised summary as an example. --Ben41 (talk) 13:09, 22 March 2014 (EDT)


Yes, it appears to be an SAA. Why do you think it's not? --Funkychinaman (talk) 15:03, 28 March 2014 (EDT)

Hi, again.

I'm back. :) --Kloga (talk) 08:53, 5 April 2014 (EDT)

I see. You create two film pages yesterday, right? Pyramid Silent (talk) 08:56, 5 April 2014 (EDT)


You probably shouldn't include weapons that aren't on the site, like the grenade launcher. Otherwise, it seems okay. --Funkychinaman (talk) 17:23, 5 April 2014 (EDT)

Does this series qualify for inclusion? I can't find it on IMDB, and it looks like it was filmed underwater. Is there no way you could get better quality screenshots? --Funkychinaman (talk) 14:48, 12 April 2014 (EDT)

As Greg noted, if it's reality TV, it's ineligible. And why would the DVD copy be watermarked? --Funkychinaman (talk) 14:59, 12 April 2014 (EDT)
So you bought a bootleg. These are bootleg images. --Funkychinaman (talk) 16:30, 12 April 2014 (EDT)
It's a TV series, as I found out, not a reality show. I confused it with another television program with same or similar name. Greg-Z (talk) 15:04, 12 April 2014 (EDT)


First, it's a reality show, right? Reality shows doesn't qualify for IMFDB, so the page cannot exist. And second, the quality of screenshots is very, VERY low. Also I can say that the pistol, identified as OTS-21, is identified incorrect. Note that OTS-21 lacks iron sights while the screen pistol has them. The shape of the "muzzle flame" makes me think that it's not a pistol at all but a pistol-shape lighter. Greg-Z (talk) 14:49, 12 April 2014 (EDT)

The low quality hampers the identification but I have a guess that the "german revolver" is simply a Nagant 1895. Maybe I'm wrong. About the compact pistol, as I said, it's not an OTs-21. The second screenshot allows to see iron sights that absend on OTs-21. Makarov I guess to be a gas pistol 6P42 or less-than-lethal IZh-79 or something like it because modern Russian TV series tend to use cheap (and creating no problems with laws) "non guns" rather that original firearms. Cannot say anything about the rifle (or shotgun) as it's seen very bad. 15:36, 12 April 2014 (EDT)
I agree, it's not a Nagant. Maybe a Webley? Greg-Z (talk) 16:11, 12 April 2014 (EDT) BTW, the English term for such revolvers is "top-break". Greg-Z (talk) 16:15, 12 April 2014 (EDT)

Old revolver

Hmmm, I don't think it's either. The barrel seems too long for a Nagant, and there's a top strap, unlike most Lefaucheux. The loading gate is also wrong for a Nagant. Where was it found? --Funkychinaman (talk) 05:04, 24 April 2014 (EDT)

It's probably not a Webley, since it's got a loading gate and a guide for an ejector rod. --Funkychinaman (talk) 05:20, 24 April 2014 (EDT)
It looks kind of like the old solid frame .32 Webleys, but there are some differences such as the ribbed barrel. It is similar to this one, but in particular the barrel has a different profiling due to the lever for the ejector rod. Perhaps this is an earlier model or a copy, but don't really know. --commando552 (talk) 08:47, 24 April 2014 (EDT)
The loading gate is different as well. --Funkychinaman (talk) 14:01, 24 April 2014 (EDT)

S&W 686 Image

I moved it to the talk page, but I feel compelled to ask, why did you post it up? It's a rare variant, doesn't appear to have been featured in anything, and image itself looks kinda low-grade. StanTheMan (talk) 14:46, 14 May 2014 (EDT)

In all honesty, you can't ID the gun at all from those images. That said, I take it it's the same gun as the one listed on the film's page, which actually looks like an 8" variant all-around anyway. So I guess that explains the image, and I guess next step is to replace the gun thumbnail on the film's page with the 8" barrel version. Though I have to say, that gun image is kinda poor. But anyway, thanks for answering. StanTheMan (talk) 17:34, 14 May 2014 (EDT)

I know you've heard this before, but what is the deal with the watermarks? --Funkychinaman (talk) 14:12, 29 May 2014 (EDT)

I think there may be some sort of misunderstanding, but what is your definition of "licensed"? It's not just the watermarks, it's the fact that the time is there too, so it's obvious someone just recorded it off of TV. And is this Kommissar Rex? According to wikipedia, that show never got an official DVD release in Europe. --Funkychinaman (talk) 14:29, 29 May 2014 (EDT)
So you think it's licensed because you paid a lot of money for it? Despite the TV watermarks? I know it's on Russian TV, it's all over your screencaps, STS-Volga in the late afternoons, sometime in winter (I'm assuming that's temperature in the top right corner.) --Funkychinaman (talk) 14:39, 29 May 2014 (EDT)
Broadcast rights and DVD rights are often completely separate. And even if they did have legal DVD distribution rights, they wouldn't leave the time and temperature in, would they?

You're right, the Glock is correct. Strasser's pistol might be a Beretta, but it's missing a slide-mounted safety, so it's not a 92FS. Coincidentally, the unknown pistol directly below DOES appear to be a Beretta 92FS. Spitzer, Lanz, Bandit and Moser all appear to be using the same revolver, a S&W Model 66. --Funkychinaman (talk) 15:28, 29 May 2014 (EDT)

Shadow of the Wolf

Although I'm a little getting ahead, but I want to say that the rifle, identified as Winchester (Shadow of the Wolf winchester 1.jpg and others), is a Martini-Henry and the rifle on Shadow of the Wolf rifle 1 1.jpg is a Lee-Enfield. Greg-Z (talk) 11:13, 6 June 2014 (EDT)

Sorry, I have no idea about this gun. But Unknown rifles 2 also seem to be Lee-Enfields, at least three of them. Greg-Z (talk) 12:05, 6 June 2014 (EDT)
BTW, why you titled the page Shadow of the Wolf (film)? There is no TV series with same title (at least as I could find on IMDb). The need for "(film)" is doubtful. Greg-Z (talk) 12:09, 6 June 2014 (EDT)
We don't have pages about books here on IMFDB. So "(film)" is needed only in case when TV series, anime or video game with the same title also exists. Greg-Z (talk) 12:15, 6 June 2014 (EDT)
One more about firearms: the rifle on the last image in Martini-Henry entry is a different one. It has a completly different stock. Greg-Z (talk) 12:15, 6 June 2014 (EDT)
Sorry, no guess. Greg-Z (talk) 12:36, 6 June 2014 (EDT)

The Indian Trade musket seems to be a good guess. The movie was filmed in Canada where (I guess) such guns are quite common. Greg-Z (talk) 07:27, 7 June 2014 (EDT)

New Nambu M57A

I don't know why you think the image of the New Nambu M57A is in 7.65mm, both the piece of paper and the actual gun are marked 9mm. And what makes you think it is a clone of the M1911? --Funkychinaman (talk) 15:16, 14 November 2014 (EST)

That may be true, but the one in the picture is clearly marked 9mm. --Funkychinaman (talk) 15:32, 14 November 2014 (EST)
I also have "Enciclopedion of the firearms", and it says that only New Nambu 57B is in 7.62 caliber but 57A is in 9 mm caliber (see page 398, images 60-8, 60-9 and 60-10). Greg-Z (talk) 15:32, 14 November 2014 (EST)

The aspect ratio for your screencaps is off. According to IMDB, it should be 2.35:1, while yours appear to be 1.66:1. I've corrected two of them, and they look a lot more natural. Once you've done that, please correct the IDs, most of which are wrong. --Funkychinaman (talk) 13:32, 12 January 2015 (EST)

Making Pages

Please do a better job of identifying the weapons before you finalize a page. For the page you made for Talk:Yamakasi, you appeared to finish the page when the majority of the guns you wrongly identified. The page was deleted because of this, but you can restore it if you make more of an effort to correctly identify the weapons. Also, don't use the movie table unless you plan on making pages for the actors that don't have pages already. I strongly suggest you review the IMFDB Style Guide and the IMFDB Screencapping Guide before making any more pages. If you make any more pages that are substandard, you could be subject to reduction in editing privileges. --Ben41 (talk) 18:30, 12 January 2015 (EST)

I have some doubt about the revolver on screenshots 1-4, 1-5, 1-6 and 1-7. This revolver has a distinctive side-mounted ejector rod, best seen on 1-4 and 1-5. It indicates that the revolver isn't top-break and so it cannot be Webley. Also note a different shape of the front sight. I have a guess that this revolver resembles a ZKR 551 but I'm not sure. What do you think about it? Greg-Z (talk) 16:55, 25 April 2015 (EDT)

About the revolver, identified as Smith & Wesson Schofield: it's not an S&W as it's definitely not a top-break. The head of ejector rod can be seen under the barrel. Sorry, I cannot say what it can be but I'll try to look in books and write, if I'll have any guess. Greg-Z (talk) 17:19, 25 April 2015 (EDT) Sorry, I was wrong, it's top-break but still differs from any Smith & Wesson. Maybe it's a Gasser M1880 Montenegrin? Greg-Z (talk) 17:23, 25 April 2015 (EDT)

Volley Gun

I see that you have created Volley Gun as a redirect to Nock Gun. Are you sure that it's correct? As far as I know, volley gun is a much more general name, used for numerous and various weapons that have a number of separate barrels on a single carriage. Mostly they were not handguns but rather artillery pieces (like El Rapido cannon in Shogun Mayeda/Shogun Warrior or a ribauldequin in Colonel Wolodyjowski). Nock gun is a multi-barreled musket, and it's only an example of a family of volley guns. Greg-Z (talk) 17:50, 2 May 2015 (EDT)

If you are creating a page for a film or television series, please make actor pages for the actors listed in Sailor Suit and Machine Gun (2006) if the actor used a firearm in the film or television series. Do not put the "[[ ]]" around the actor's name if they did not use a weapon in the series.--Ben41 (talk) 17:14, 4 May 2015 (EDT)

There should not be so many red links on your movie or television pages. If the actor doesn't have a good picture of them holding a weapon, then don't put "[[ ]]" around the actor's name. Otherwise make a page for the actor. --Ben41 (talk) 08:27, 9 May 2015 (EDT)

Burn Up Excess IDs

This is why I'm frustrated anime is included. Sure, lots of artists care and put a lot of detail into the guns, but others, not as much. Anyway, Pistol 1 and 3 appear to be Walther P88s. Pistols 2 and 4 might be SIG-Sauer P229s. Rifle 2 and 4 appear to be SIG SG 550s or 551s, you'll have to double-check. Rifle 3 appears to be an AK-47. --Funkychinaman (talk) 11:33, 1 July 2015 (EDT)

The Minebea P9 is also a P229. --Funkychinaman (talk) 12:22, 4 July 2015 (EDT)

The pistols are generic and inconsistently drawn to the point of being unidentifiable, and the revolver isn't a Taurus Model 605 as that has a 5 round cylinder and the anime gun has 6. Moving down the list, I would say that the Port Said is much more likely just a Carl Gustav M/45B. Firstly, this is a more common weapon, especially in terms of finding a stock image to draw a picture from, and secondly it appears to lack the clip on the right side of the magazine well which would be there on the Port Said (the port Said used the barrel shroud from the M/45B with 3 small as opposed to 4 large holes down the side, but kept the removable magazine allowing it to take the 50 round coffin mags). The Beretta SMG is a later model like the PM12S rather than the original M12 as it lacks the button at the top of the right grip plate due to it having the more conventional controls. The MP5k is actually an MP5KA1 due to it not having the hooded front sight or drum rear sight. The aAK-74 is more likely just a poorly modelled AK-47 as it has the milled receiver and old style front sight and gas block. The Howa Type 89 is just another SG 550. The Steyr AUG is an A2 not an A1 as it has removeable sights on a rail. Rifle 4 looks kind of like a Galil or relative. Rifles 5, 6, 9 and 10 all look like SG 550s to me with variously borked proportions. The last picture in the "Illegal Firearms Market" section shows a couple of Intratec TEC-9 Minis. --commando552 (talk) 10:52, 4 July 2015 (EDT)

I wonder where the name "Gryazev-Shipunov GSh-27L" came from? Such model doesn't exist in reality (the only twin-barreled Gryazev-Shipunov guns are GSh-23 and GSh-30-2 that looks different from the screen gun) and hardly JASDF would use Russian-manufactured guns at all, so I wonder if this name appeared in the anime or it's your guess? And continuing the theme of aircrafts armament, AAA-7 and AAA-9 appear to be futuristic missiles, I guess? In modern days JASDF most modern AA missiles are AAA-3, -4 and -5. Greg-Z (talk) 12:58, 4 July 2015 (EDT)
I guess that under the name "GSh-27L" the anime creators meant GSh-23L that really exists and have large muzzle breaks, especially on helicopter-mounted version. Though the screen version looks different from a real gun. And such thing as PPSh-45 never existed, the Vehrmacht modification of PPSh-41 in 9x19 caliber was known as MP.41(r).

More Desert Punk

My two cent:

1. FN 1900 - this pistol doesn't look like FN 1900 but I cannot say what it can be. Looks unfamiliar to me.

2. Walther PPK - the pistol looks too long for PPK. Maybe a Walther PP?

3. Beretta 92 - this pistol isn't a Beretta as it 1) doesn't have the typical Beretta open-top slide, 2) is hammerless. Again no idea what it can be.

4. A revolver, crossed with Walther P38, isn't listed. I guess that it's a Colt (note the unsupported ejector rod and typically sloped frame) but I cannot identify the exact model right now.

Desert Punk pistols.jpg

5. Armsel Protecta - due to long barrel and top-folding stock is looks more like SWD/Cobray Street Sweeper. On the same screenshot one more shotgun can be seen: a High Standard Model 10 at the left. Two rifles between this shotgun and a PPSh bear some resemblance with SKS but seem to be longer, so I again cannot say what it can be.

Desert Punk rifles 1.jpg
On this screenshot the rifles looks more SKS-like that on the previous one.

ADD: a machine gun on tripod is seen at the left on the first of these screenshots. Maybe a Browning M2 but maybe not, it seems to be a little different.

6. M3 is M3A1 as it lacks the crank lever.

7. Some AK-47 appear to be AK-74s.

Force of the Dragon

I have only some guess about the second revolver: it has full barrel underlug and vent rib with two holes so it can be a Colt Python. But the shape of the frame seems a little different (but it can be only due to the angle of view). The first revolver is a mystery for me. BTW, the pisol that is seen next to the second revolver isn't a M1911A1: it has a different, more angular shape of the trigger guard, something like a decocker is seen on the rear of the slide, and it has stainless frame and blued slide. This pistol need more research, just now I cannot make any guess about it. Greg-Z (talk) 07:58, 13 September 2015 (EDT)

Changing table width

When you change the width of columns in a table to make it look better, please keep in mind that the result may look better on your own screen but worser on some other screen. For example, I visit IMFDB, using four different computers with different monitors, and tables look different on every of them. So I recommend to avoid in future such "better looking" changes, especially reducing the width of a column below 50 px. Of course, reasonable changes are welcome, but such change as was done on Uldis Pucitis page is unnecessary. Greg-Z (talk) 16:30, 3 October 2015 (EDT)

Your Screenshots for the Silent Hill series

Hi, do you think you could point me to where one can download a 9 or 10 star completed save file for the PC version of Silent Hill 4? I've been meaning to get screenshots of the SMG from that game but never found the time to practice enough to get 9 or 10 stars by the end of the game.

Also, I appreciate the Silent Hill 2 screenshots, but this site was made by the developers to be an English language wiki (and the game was originally recorded with English-speaking voice/motion capture actors). Perhaps you could set the ingame language to English and retake the inventory and cutscene screenshots for Silent Hill 2? Or just retake the cutscene screenshots with the subtitles turned off? I'd like to see one where Maria says "Do I fight and live?" at the beginning of the "Born from a Wish" scenario but without any subtitles. --Mazryonh (talk) 21:37, 25 October 2015 (EDT)

I see, I thought that you had access to the Silent Hill 4 PC version. Anyway, the PC version of Silent Hill 3 has a language setting that lets you change the ingame text and subtitles to many different languages, so I thought that the PC version of Silent Hill 2 would have that as well. Until someone with access to the English language version can get screenshots that way, the Russian ones will likely have to stay.
The PC version of SH4 has save files that can be transferred from one PC to another, but I'm not sure now if one from the Russian language version would be compatible with an English language one. I didn't think that Silent Hill 4 was hard; I believe Silent Hill 3 would be harder since there are higher difficulty levels, no dodge moves, and no charge moves. I already knew about how to get Eileen's SMG.
Oh, and I don't believe there was a need to crop out the subtitles from the SH4 screenshot where Richard Braintree is talking to the little kid. Including subtitles can be a way to tell users of this wiki what a character is saying without putting it in the picture's description, or if a user is seeing the screenshot full-size. I thought that the subtitles (which included the black bars) made the screenshot more informative. --Mazryonh (talk) 23:35, 31 October 2015 (EDT)

Female Terrorist Ivanova

May I ask what is the source of such version of the title? A brief googling showed me the following: Terrorist Ivanova on Amazon, Terrorist Ivanova on Biblio.com, "Shooting of the film ”Terrorist Ivanova”" on UNIAN news agency, at last Terrorist Ivanova on Maria Shukshina's page in Wikipedia. Female Terrorist Ivanova isn't found anywhere. I would add that when speaking about profession or occupation, a gender usually isn't used in English: like "teacher" for both "учитель" and "учительница", "cook" for both "повар" and "повариха", "criminal" for both "преступник" and "преступница" and so on. So I think that "Female" in the title is unnecessary. What is your opinion? Greg-Z (talk) 16:47, 27 November 2015 (EST)

My opinion is that Terrorist Ivanova is a better title as it's already used in several sources. Greg-Z (talk) 03:58, 28 November 2015 (EST)

Medicopter 117 Over/Under

New screenshots are very good. I still think that it's not a shotgun but an over and under rifle (or maybe a shotgun/rifle combo thought is seems less credible as both barrels appear to be of same thickness while on combo guns the shotgun barrel is thicker). It's possibly but not nessesary that it's one of Krieghoff model, like Krieghoff Teck, or maybe a similar gun of another manufacturer. Sorry, I'm not so good in hunting guns to identify the exact model. Greg-Z (talk) 14:53, 9 January 2016 (EST)

Yes, it seems to be a possible guess. Greg-Z (talk) 15:19, 9 January 2016 (EST)
I'm really not sure. We have no general page for double barreled rifles, and redirect on double barreled shotgun page would be incorrect, so a new page for this gun seems to be a correct thing. Please try to add some info about the gun when creating the page, if it's available in internet. Greg-Z (talk) 15:34, 9 January 2016 (EST)

Violence Jack

Both SMGs look the same and resemble Walther more than Franchi. Note the shape of the folding stock on the 4th screenshot in Franchi section, it looks like Walther. Unknown Submachine Gun 1 also seems to be the same Walther-like SMG, again judging by the folding stock. The MP5 on first five screenshots has a magazine too wide for 9mm so it's resemble something like a Heckler & Koch HK53. Greg-Z (talk) 06:10, 21 January 2016 (EST)

I'm looking at your sandbox, and I think you really need to double and triple check some of these IDs. You're clearly just guessing on some of them, especially the revolvers. --Funkychinaman (talk) 12:59, 8 February 2016 (EST)

I would say that the Browning is an Umarex GPDA, as it is inscribed on the slide. Swatow Hung holds a single M1911 in pair with a Type 54 pistol, not a pair of 1911s. And what makes you to identify revolvers as Model 37 Airweight and Model 12? Greg-Z (talk) 15:25, 8 February 2016 (EST)
The Taurus 85 isn't that - The revolver in the screencaps clearly has six chambers, the Taurus 85 has only five. Some of the caps in your Model 36 section likewise show a revolver that looks to have a six-round cylinder as well. I don't see the specific IDs of the Model 37 or Model 12 either. The Mossberg is a S&W 3000 folder with extended mag-tube. Hope this helps a bit. StanTheMan (talk) 16:21, 8 February 2016 (EST)
If you ID a Model 37 or Model 12, please provide your rationale. And the M16 clearly has a forward assist. Please refer to the Colt AR-15 Identification Guide. --Funkychinaman (talk) 18:51, 8 February 2016 (EST)

Also, the shape of the ejection port on that shotgun is wrong for a Mossberg or S&W, looks more like a Remington 870 to me (and the design of the magazine tube extension and clamps is a match too). --commando552 (talk) 09:59, 9 February 2016 (EST)
^ I had thought that but in the one closeup of the receiver the eject port seems a bit large and seems to have a wee bit more of an upward cut reaching the top of the receiver which matches more the Smith, rather the Remington - It's slight but it's there. That plus the pump grip doesn't look like that of a typical 870, and the gun has the S&W-style factory folding stock. I will admit the barrel clamps are there in that one shot but don't seem to be in others so I'm wondering if they just swapped with an 870 for that one shot or something. StanTheMan (talk) 14:55, 9 February 2016 (EST)


It's incorrect to call IZh-17 a version of IZh-18. These are two independent models, that appeared in same time (mid-1960s) as evolution of previous hammer (ZK, IZhK) and hammerless (IZhKB) shotguns. They are distant relatives but not version of each other. For example, their history is here and here. Greg-Z (talk) 13:25, 23 February 2016 (EST)

They are really similar as they were created by same gun designers in same time. I cannot say which way would be better: to create a separate page for 17, or to rename the existing page into 17/18, or some other way. Let me think a little before we would make an action. In any way, I'm not sure that the shotgun in Vory v zakone is IZh-17, it is possible but the shape of the stock seems to me different. And in Dikoe pole I'm even unsure if the shotgun has exposed or hidden hammer. Greg-Z (talk) 13:42, 23 February 2016 (EST)

New page: Collision Course

Hey P.S., I am going to start a new page, for the movie Collision Course with Jay Leno. Your tips were great last time when I did the Mortdecai page (with a lot of help from you and others). If you have any tips this time, please let me know.

March 11th: Thanks! I will work in my Sandbox for a while and let you know when I have a good page for Collision Course ready.

This is Minigun ?

The Scene in Amazing Nurse Nanako ep2 "Memories of You", It has been described as "American combat helicopter was equiped with the GE M134 Minigun".

Der Schut

I'm a little too hasty but I would like to correct an error even before the page is complete: Lex Barker's shotgun is not a Remington 870 but a Browning Auto-5. Greg-Z (talk) 11:23, 3 April 2016 (EDT)

Well, generally looks OK though now I begin to doubt about Auto-5. It's semi auto shotgun, and Auto-5 looks similar but the screen gun has different sights, and I cannot find an image of Auto-5 with such sights. So I'm not absolutly sure now. And sorry, I cannot help with numerous unknown rifles - they are unknown for me too. Greg-Z (talk) 13:23, 3 April 2016 (EDT)

Desert Punk SMG

Hey there!I've noticed an interesting SMG in episode 14 ,and I took a picture.--VLAD M (talk) 07:51, 30 April 2016 (EDT)
Desert Punk 9mm submachine gun
In my opinion,it's a Sadu ASALT-96:
Sadu ASALT-96 - 9x19mm

It is a romanian clone of the israelian IMI Uzi,which uses an MP5 style front magazine,thus having the role of impersonating NATO smg's.--VLAD M (talk) 08:03, 30 April 2016 (EDT)

Re: Check two pages

Hello, I'll look these pages and tell if I'll find something incorrect. But at first I have to work on my own pages, as I was away for a month. Greg-Z (talk) 09:29, 14 May 2016 (EDT)

OK, let's start. In Boss I found out only one error: the AK-style rifle cannot be a Chinese Type 56 as all versions of Type 56 have hooded front sight while the screen gun has unhooded one, seen on the last screenshot. Cannot say what it can be as Japanese moviemakes have a lot of high class blank firing guns. Also I would remark that in TT section an image of pre-1947 TT-33 would be more correct that an image of TT-30 that was produced in midget numbers and hardly can appear in any movie. Let's now go to Kochikame. Here, as allways in anime, we have a lot of problems. The revolver in opening section doesn't match S&W Model 15 as it lacks the target sights. It also differs from Model 10. Maybe the prototype wasn't a S&W revolver at all as the shape of the frame is more rounded as on S&Ws and the logo looks also different (thought the logo can be pure fictional due to legal issues). I suggest to look for some clone of S&W revolvers, like Spanish Llama or Astra. Maybe I'm wrong but something tells me that there we can find a better fitting model. If not, then I would prefere an S&W Model 10 rather than Model 15 due to the sights. The Beretta can be any model of modern Beretta family, not nessessary 84. What was the reason to identify this pistol as Beretta 84? The shape of the pistol grip shotgun makes me think about a Winchester Model 1200/1300 but Ithaca 37 "Stakeout" is also possible, the image is too generic for a sure guess. The other movies have to wait a little, I'll look these pages later. Greg-Z (talk) 10:15, 14 May 2016 (EDT)
It looks OK with Rys series except for the one entry: the supposed Los carbine in Lynx Follows the Path. Mikhalych's rifle has a military sights that aren't used on any version of Los. And the rifle on the last screenshot seems to have different shape of front sight and of the forend of the stock. So I guess that none of these rifles is Los but rather some other hunting rifle. I need more research to make any guess what it can be. Greg-Z (talk) 10:43, 14 May 2016 (EDT)
Sorry, looks like I was wrong. Original Los in 9x53 caliber has a military sight (this image, for example). BTW, the rifle on the last screenshot in Lynx Returns also matches first version of Los, look the attachment of the ramrod. Greg-Z (talk) 11:13, 14 May 2016 (EDT)

Kitayskiy serviz

I came across a discussion of Kitayskiy serviz on guns.ru. They identify the screen revolvers as blank firing RS-22 Strazh (РС-22 Страж, translation would be Guard or Guardian, I guess). Greg-Z (talk) 05:54, 24 May 2016 (EDT)

I missed Strazh when we discussed this movie, and we must thank people from Ganza. It's really worth looking there from time to time. BTW, maybe Strazh appeared in other Russian post-1990s movies, and some of unidentified or misidentified revolvers may appear this model. Greg-Z (talk) 14:39, 25 May 2016 (EDT)

Re: Dhoom and Dhoom 2

Hello! It seems to me that everything looks OK. I have a gut feeling that Beretta pistols are Kimar (or other manufacturer) blank firing clones, but there is no chance to identify them positive so let them be Beretta 92FS. The pistol of Brasilian policeman on the last screenshot makes me thing about Taurus PT 24/7 but I'm not sure in this guess. The first bandit's revolver looks very familiar but I cannot say anything just now except it's a top-break model. I'll make some more research in Zhuk's Firearms.

Sorry for getting ahead, but I'd like to remark that Jonas Ambler's pistol looks more like a Browning Hi-Power than a Colt. Greg-Z (talk) 16:46, 24 September 2016 (EDT)

The SMG, IDed as Grease Gun, is a Beretta M12. Greg-Z (talk) 02:05, 25 September 2016 (EDT)
Galil Sniper Rifle is a 5.56 version, not 7.62, note the curved shape of the magazine unlike the square box of 7.62 version. It appears to be Galil AR (or possibly South African R4, if the movie was filmed in South Africa). What is IDed as AKS-74, has a different magazine that looks more like 7.62x39mm. The folding stock also differs from AKS-74. Maybe it's some Norinco version of AK. Greg-Z (talk) 09:15, 25 September 2016 (EDT)
I think also that AKS-47s are more like Norinco Type 56-1, as the front sights seem to be hooded that is a typical feature of Norinko AKs. But I can be wrong in this case. Klinge's subcompact AK isn't AKS-74U, it has a different position of rear sight and different muzzle break. The shape of the magazine matches 5.56x45mm. So I would guess it to be one more Chinese clone, maybe Type 84 based custom compact gun. Jeep-mounted machine gun isn't DS-39, it has plain barrel and different belt-fed (also DS-39 is very rarely seen on screen). Possibly it's SG-43, fitted with fake DShK-style muzzle break. Maybe not. The tripod-mounted machine gun in night scene is a DShK. Greg-Z (talk) 11:57, 25 September 2016 (EDT) P.S. And Rocket Khrupkiy really made me laught. Greg-Z (talk) 11:57, 25 September 2016 (EDT)
I don't think it's an SG-43, it feeds from the left. Maybe an M60 modded to look like a DShK? And the DShk looks like a modded M60. The Beretta 81 appears to be another 92F/FS. The Iver Johnson AMAC-1500 appears to be a Galil. --Funkychinaman (talk) 13:19, 25 September 2016 (EDT)
I think both machine guns are modded M60s. --Funkychinaman (talk) 15:04, 25 September 2016 (EDT)

Single Shot Pistol

Russian criminals used Single Shot Pistol in The Extraordinary Adventures of Mr. West in the Land of the Bolsheviks. It is that?[2] - KINKI'boy (talk) 2:21, 27 September 2016 (JST)

Re:Muskets in Cuba

Yes, it's quite possible thought I cannot see enough details to be sure. Anyway I guess that these are non-firing replicas that only generally follow the outlook of real guns and are intended for decoration (like many Denix replicas). Greg-Z (talk) 16:45, 19 October 2016 (EDT)

The Last Sword

It's hard to say for sure but I guess that Springfield and Snider-Enfield are identified correct. Though Snider-Enfield seems to have a shorter barrel that a sample of this gun - possibly a carbine version appears in the movie? The full-lenght rifle has three barrel bands while the screen rifle - only two. I'm not so sure about Enfield 1853 as the screen guns look some different and their barrels are also too short. What is identified as Chassepot appears to be bolt action rifle but I cannot see the bolt handle on any of the screenshots, so it's something strange. Sorry, I cannot add any positive identification. Greg-Z (talk) 12:28, 21 October 2016 (EDT)

It's possible that these guns are the same as their barrels look similar, and the sling is attached just the right way for short Snider-Enfield. Greg-Z (talk) 13:02, 21 October 2016 (EDT)
About supposed Chassepot. The last screenshot in this section shows the breech of the gun. I suppose that it also resembles Snider-Enfiled as it is seen here. Maybe it's some other conversion of percussion cap muzzleloader into breach loading rifle, like French Tabatière rifles but Snider bolt looks most similar, as I would guess. Greg-Z (talk) 13:09, 21 October 2016 (EDT)
These additional screenshots reinforce my opinion that these rifles are Snider system though of different model, with longer barrels and different rear sights. Greg-Z (talk) 14:33, 21 October 2016 (EDT)

I don't think it's a Chassepot 1866. Compare the top of the receiver in the last screenshot with the image here. --Funkychinaman (talk) 14:41, 21 October 2016 (EDT)


Screenshots are of mediocre quality so it's hard to say something. I guess that M16 is airsoft as genuine M16s are rare guests in Russian movies, and in modern times airsoft guns look very close to originals. There is also a pair of PKMs on the first shot in AKS section, their long flash hiders are seen at the right. RPK can be RPK-74 as its magazine on the second screenshot seems to be less curved than on 7.62 version but it can be only a result of angle of view. Anyway, these shots are very unclear. Greg-Z (talk) 07:31, 23 October 2016 (EDT)


I sent the image of MTs 8 via email. About the pistol: a good guess, my congratulations! I searched for some clone of Beretta without any idea about Margolin. Maybe the exact model is blank firing IZh-77 (also known as 6P36) version of MTsM-K? It has a lower front sight than the base .22 caliber pistol, so the barrel can be inserted into the mouth of actor without too much damage. Greg-Z (talk) 12:38, 4 November 2016 (EDT)

Krasnye gory

Unidentified machine gun appears to be a visually modified PK, fitted with a barrel shroud of MG34 and spade grips of Goryunov SG-43. The rifle, identified as Arisaka, has a different upper barrel band, it is too long and of different shape than on any Arisaka model. The general shape of the forend of this rifle makes me think about Karabiner 98k "Kriegsmodell"; Unknown Rifle in hands of a German soldier also is possibly a 98k Kriegsmodel.

Karabiner 98k "Kriegsmodell" - 7.92x57mm Mauser. The "Kriegsmodell" (war model), was a late war simplification to the Kar 98k. This rifle is a "semi-Kriegsmodell" as it has simpler screw retained barrel bands and the bayonet lug and cleaning rod have been omitted, but it still has the bolt disassembly disc in the buttstock. A rifle which incorporate all simplification features is known as a "full-Kriegsmodell", but these are rarer, being manufactured by only two factories (bnz and byf/svw).
The rifle strongly resembles a 98k Kriegsmodel except for the bayonet lug that was removed on Kriegsmodel. Possibly it's some transitional version or a combination of details of standard and simplified 98k rifles.
The shape of the barrel and upper band is seen perfectly.

The cannon is 45-mm 21-K naval gun. Greg-Z (talk) 02:35, 11 November 2016 (EST)

It's also worth noting that on one sceeenshot a brigand at the left holds a sniper version of M91/30 with turned down bolt handle (without sniper scope, of course). Greg-Z (talk) 03:03, 12 November 2016 (EST)
Krasnye gory E2 revolver 1 5.jpg

I guess the Unknown Rifle 1 is also M91/30, fitted with a bayonet attached backwards (such practice you can see in many Soviet war movies; though I don't know if it was a real practice or only a movie trick). Greg-Z (talk) 14:19, 16 November 2016 (EST)

The second unidentified rifle also looks like M91/30, and as we cannot see the straight bolt handle, it can be the same sniper version with turned down handle that appears in other scenes. The heavy naval gun is a 85-mm 90-K AA gun. Greg-Z (talk) 15:23, 16 November 2016 (EST)
The 45mm gun is 21-KM, not 21-K. The screenshot from Ep. 3 shows a longer barrel so my previous guess was not quite accurate. Greg-Z (talk) 11:48, 20 November 2016 (EST)

My congratulations! A good work. I would only mention that MG34, mounted on watchtower (screenshots from 3rd to 7th) is a visually modified PKM, such guns are seen in many Soviet/Russian movies. And you have too many screenshots in various entries. I recommend to keep up to 12 screenshots for a single gun, choose the best and move exceeding images to talk page. 00:21, 23 November 2016 (EST)

Re:Unknown pistol in "Cabbages and Kings"

This gun looks similar but still is different. Note the wooden stock below the barrel, the lack of the device on trigger guard (I don't known what it is for), the shorter barrel and too crude front sight. I guess that this gun is a sawed-off shotgun, mocked up to resemble Broqua & Scholberg pistol or one of its numerous counterparts. Greg-Z (talk) 01:56, 28 November 2016 (EST)

At last I get the answer (by chance, while looking for another gun): it's 1880s Francotte Pistol. Greg-Z (talk) 02:53, 14 December 2016 (EST)
The pistol in Mr.West looks different from Francott, at least from this particular model. It resembles Broqua & Scholberg close enough though such single shot pistols were produced by many manufacturers. Greg-Z (talk) 05:21, 14 December 2016 (EST)

I think that an entry on Flintlock Pistol page would be correct enough. Greg-Z (talk) 14:25, 16 December 2016 (EST)


After more careful examination I'm not sure if the screen gun matches the sample revolver. Aside the screen gun is not handgun, it doesn't look having revolving barrels. As for me, it appears to be a triple-barrelled musket, and not a matchlock one. Greg-Z (talk) 06:50, 17 January 2017 (EST)

OK, I got it about revolving. Thanks for clarification. I found this image, it seem to have the barrel lenght and the shape of the muzzle end more similar to screen gun, how do you think? Greg-Z (talk) 11:37, 17 January 2017 (EST)
As the gun is hand-rotated, I think that pepperbox (or maybe pepperbox musket as the gun is long barreled) would be more correct term. Though all these definitions are very vague, and the same gun could be called pepperbox, pepperbox revolver or revolver. And yes, I vote for eligibility of the page. Greg-Z (talk) 12:38, 17 January 2017 (EST) BTW, "pepperbox matchlock arquebus" is said about this gun that looks also the same Japanese model. Greg-Z (talk) 12:45, 17 January 2017 (EST)


Sorry, I cannot make strict identification of this pistol. Moldova doesn't have any military industry, all guns of Moldovan army and police are from Soviet Army stocks or supplied from Romania, so possibly it can be a Romanian Carpati Md 1995 but it's very, very vague guess.

Let's wait until other admins will vote. Greg-Z (talk) 06:57, 29 April 2017 (EDT)
I'd vote no as well, but not because of generic drawing. Actually to me the animation is pretty high quality and the guns are drawn well. The problem is though that they are not specific models of gun, they are just generic types like "matchlock musket", "wheellock pistol" and "cannon". For live action films that only have weapons of this sort there is an argument to still make the page as they are actually held by real actors so it is worth documenting for that reason, however the same argument cannot be made for animation or video games. If this was an animation of the same quality with identifiable specific models of guns like Brown Bess muskets then that might be a different story, but as is I would say no to this page. Also, just to clarify there are a few animations that we currently have pages for that we would not allow as new pages today, a good example being The Iron Giant, as we have tightened up our rules since then. --commando552 (talk) 07:45, 29 April 2017 (EDT)

Remington 1863 Zouave had no version with shorter barrel, and even all modern replicas that can be found in internet have the same barrel lenght. Greg-Z (talk) 08:56, 7 September 2017 (EDT)

Looks like I mistaked when said that there is no modern replica with shorter barrel. Chiappa produced REMINGTON MODEL ZOUAVE MUSKETOON that has short barrel. I need to make more research about this model. Greg-Z (talk) 09:06, 7 September 2017 (EDT)
Chiappa catalog lists a version of Zouave with 25" barrel (vs 33" on standard rifle). Such version fits better to screen guns, but I still cannot find any image of this model, so this version is still not proved. Greg-Z (talk) 09:21, 7 September 2017 (EDT)

The rifle in youtube looks like a standard 33" gun. The short version must be similar to Richmond Carbine that also has 25" barrel. Greg-Z (talk) 10:01, 7 September 2017 (EDT)

I think this one is what we are looking for. Here is another image but in two parts. I'll try to find a better image. Greg-Z (talk) 14:00, 7 September 2017 (EDT)

Re:ID of the pistol

As far as I remember, we discussed this issue. The pistol in "Mr. West" looks different from this sample of Francotte pistol. But there were many different Francotte pistols, also similar guns were produced by other French and Belgian armorers. I really cannot say for sure if "Mr. West" pistol is possibly Broqua & Scholberg or some Francotte-style gun. A lot of similar guns can be googled by "break action single shot pistol". For example, the top pistol here looks similar to the "Mr. West" gun, but it isn't identified even by its owner (only as "German single shot pistol"). Greg-Z (talk) 15:36, 6 October 2017 (EDT)

The problem is that I'm not sure that these pistols are identified correct. Screen guns look really like the sample (source), but all googling of "Francotte pistol" show different guns, like this, this or this. So I'm still in doubt. Greg-Z (talk) 16:41, 6 October 2017 (EDT)

Lorna Doone

Sorry, I have no idea about this gun. The possible guess for US 1920s movie can be Remington Rolling Block that has similar shape of the stock, but it's very vague. I wouldn't dare to identify the gun. Greg-Z (talk) 14:02, 25 October 2017 (EDT)

Re:Girls' Last Tour

What I can say just now is that these aren't _auto_cannons. Just cannons as there is no sign that they fire in full auto mode. They resemble static AA guns of WW2 or 1950s, like German 88mm or 105mm Flak or Soviet 100mm KS-19 but I need more time for better guess.

Tank_2 and tank_3 resemble Soviet KV.

Crashed bomber is Soviet Tu-95. Greg-Z (talk) 15:34, 13 January 2018 (EST)

Cannons 5_1 - 5_4 generally look like Soviet 85mm 52-K but they are mounted on different mounting that look more like German Flak 36, and the muzzle break is too simplistic. Other issues are already edited, and I can say nothing about the rest. Greg-Z (talk) 02:57, 14 January 2018 (EST)

Re:Bomb and Samoubiytsy

The vehicle in Bomb is BTR-80, of course. What concerns Samoubiytsy, I have a feeling that most if not all guns in this movie are blank firing and airsoft. I'll try to ask more knowing people, maybe we could get some help on this issue. Greg-Z (talk) 00:51, 20 February 2018 (EST)

I don't know, really. I have some suspictions that cannot be proved. Thompson is possibly non-firing Denix model (genuine M1921s aren't seen in Soviet/Russian movies, and Denix models are often used by moviemakers). Kedr is possibly PDT-9T Esaul while Kiparis also may be a Esaul with some visual modifications, the screen gun looks too short for Kiparis. Greg-Z (talk) 14:55, 20 February 2018 (EST) P.S.

Re:Some guess

Yes, Utkur Khodzhayev isn't seen with a weapon in Zdes prokhodit granitsa. While others fire, he digs. Greg-Z (talk) 01:09, 17 April 2018 (EDT)


I'm not sure about Python. On second screenshot we can see some inscription on the frame that doesn't appear on genuine Pythons. The grip also looks shorter, note the position of the screw. The shape of the front sight also seems slightly different. (BTW, calling the ventilated rib a "Picatinny rail" is incorrect; Picatinny is an interface system used to mount sniper scopes and other such things.) Maybe this is an airsoft gun, like other weapons in the movie. Greg-Z (talk) 13:04, 17 April 2018 (EDT)

Both shotguns look similar. It's hard to make a strict guess but very possibly both are same model. Greg-Z (talk) 15:27, 17 April 2018 (EDT)

"Molot BPO-302"

All about this gun horribly erroneous. First, the weapon is named VPO-302, not BPO. Second, it has nothing in common with SKS - it is based on RPK machine gun. Third, this model appeared only in late 2017, so it cannot appear in earlier movies. The SKS, seen on Molot_BPO-302.jpg, is OP-SKS, the marking can be seen on the bolt. So I rename the gun image, and you please correct the movie and actor pages. Thanks. Greg-Z (talk) 17:11, 6 October 2018 (EDT)

Looks like the work is complete now. Concerning percussion cap long guns: it's very hard to identify the exact model.

Sorry, I was away for several days and couldn't answer. I think that my guess was wrong, and Ultimate94ninja is right, and the screen gun is airsoft version of AK-105. Speaking about Saiga MK-107, it is based on AK-107 and so, if it would be used on screen, this gun could be placed on AK-107 section, or maybe on its own page under the final release name SR1. But for now, this gun still didn't appear. Greg-Z (talk) 12:02, 10 March 2019 (EDT)

This is most likely a hunting weapon but the generic term "musket" fits better in this case. I used a sample of "shompolka" only because this gun has similar outlook but such similarity doesn't prove that the screen gun is a shotgun in strict sence of this term (BTW, shompolka guns were often rifles). If you are interested in hunting weapons of 19th century, I recommend the book В.Е. Маркевич "Охотничье и спортивное стрелковое оружие". --Greg-Z (talk) 15:27, 6 May 2019 (EDT)

Thalcave and others

Hello! Thalcave's gun seems to be not a military weapon, rather a hunting one, as the barrel is too long, and the stock is too short for military guns. This gun may be a smoothbore musket or a rifle, it's impossible to say for sure. Here and here you can find articles about so-called "Sibirka", a kind of long barreled percussion cap rifles, popular among Siberian hunters even in 1920s. Maybe the screen gun is a "Sibirka", but it's very, very vague guess. Sorry, I have no better idea.

Concerning Vladimir Vaynshtok: IMDb spells his name in this way, not as Weinstock, and I think we'll better follow this way. Don't know if there is any need to mention his ethnicy. And he directed movies not only based on foreign books, though these movies are known better that his early works. So my version of this desctiption would be: "Vladimir Petrovich Vajnshtok (March 11, 1908 - October 18, 1978) was a notable Soviet film director and screenwriter, best known for adventure movies, especially The Headless Horseman (Vsadnik bez golovy) and Armed and Dangerous (Vooruzhyon i ochen opasen)" (I mentioned these two movies as they were leaders of Soviet wide screen in the years of their release). And why "Produced"? Vajnshtok wasn't produced, he was screenwriter for these movies, these are quite different things. --Greg-Z (talk) 14:09, 23 August 2019 (EDT)

Bullet Ballet

No problems, I'll look tomorrow and report the result. --Greg-Z (talk) 15:20, 24 November 2019 (EST)

OK, so let's go.

1) 1, 3, 12, 17, 20 - these are US Navy battleships. 17 shows twin turrets, so it's most likely Colorado-class, armed with 8 16-inch guns. Other screenshots show triple turrets, so these are Pennsylvania-class, or New Mexico-class, or Tennessee-class - all these battleships were very similar and had 12 14-inch guns. Small guns, seen on 1, 3 and 20, may be 3-inch AA guns that were used on most battleships of these classes.

20 is most interesting of these screenshots. A warship at the background left has outlook similar to Japanese Imperial Navy battleships with typical very high superstructure (in US Navy this detail of Japanese battleships was nicknamed "Pagoda"). Possibly this is a photo of the Battle of Surigao Strait of 25 October 1944 when "Yamashiro" was sank by six US battleships of 14-inch and 16-inch types, described above. But this is only a guess that can be proved or declined by a study of photos of that battle.

2) 13 - I cannot say anything about this ship, but it's not a battleship, maybe a cruiser or even destroyer.

3) 2 and 5 - don't know what gun it is

4) 10 - looks like French 75mm Mle 1897 field gun. But the uniform of the gunner isn't French, he wears a typical British helmet. I have no idea when and where this photo was taken. Maybe China in 1930s when the Chinese army got weapons anywhere they could.

5) 22 - no idea

6) 6, 4 - agree, "Katyusha"

7) 7, 8, 9, 16 - agree, DP, but maybe these are not Soviet troops, maybe Chinese communists, as the hat of the gunner makes me think (or maybe I'm wrong)

8) 14 - OMG! This is WW2 footage, how could you think about Phalanx! This is small ship, I guess a destroyer. Maybe a US Navy destroyer, armed with 5-inch main guns and twin 40mm Bofors.

9) 15, 16, 21 - no idea. The helmets on 15 seem to be of British pattern but this proves nothing.

10) 19 - Agree, sniper M91/30.

That's all. --Greg-Z (talk) 05:49, 25 November 2019 (EST)

While technically 40mm Bofors of WW2 era was L60, I don't recomment to use such redirect: L60 means that the barrel length is equal to 60 calibers (60 x 40mm in this case), and there were other naval guns with L60. As a matter of fact, US Navy designated this gun as 40mm L56, and German Navy as 4cm/56. "Bofors L60" can be seen in various media (and "Bofors L70" for post-war variant), so such redirect may be used. --Greg-Z (talk) 12:58, 27 November 2019 (EST)

As far as I know, "Earl" is used for the noble title only in England, while in other cases "Count" is used: "Graf is a historical title of the German nobility, usually translated as "count"." What concerns firearms, I'm not sure that the flintlock musket is a certainly M1763 (there were many muskets with similar shape of top barrel band), but it quite fits as an example. --Greg-Z (talk) 02:47, 28 March 2020 (EDT)

Bereg spaseniya and Cobra Verde

  • First, Bereg spaseniya. I haven't watched this film, so cannot say about the supposed mercenaries, sorry. But it looks reasonable, as far as I can understand from Wikipedia description. Concerning the guns: Arisaka rifles have closed-top handguards so they are Type 99 Short Rifle. They are too long for Type 38 Carbine, and most other Arisaka models have open-top handguards.
  • Second, Cobra Verde. Klaus Kinski's rifle is bolt action, and most likely small caliber (the size looks similar to such .22 rifle as Remington Model 33, for example), but the stock really is strange. I haven't ever seen any image of a rifle that has a trigger guard as a part of stock. Maybe some custom work, or even possibly this rifle is a non-firing mockup, made of wooden stock, a tube for the barrel and a bolt handle taken from a real gun. Really, I don't know. BTW, the gun on 4 12 screenshot doesn't look like percussion shotgun due to the shape of stock that is more common for break-action shotguns. Percussion shotguns tend to have straight stock. One of the guns on 4 21 have same outlook, the one at the left, with light brown wood.

Briefly: hooded front sight indicates M91/30, round receiver indicates M91/30 but unhooded front sight and hex receiver may be seen on both original M91 Dragoon and early M91/30. Rear sights are collected on this page. Hope this would help. --Greg-Z (talk) 13:44, 16 January 2021 (EST)

Re: Sneg i pepel

Many thanks, I'll add this info on the page. --Greg-Z (talk) 13:20, 21 September 2021 (EDT)

The character at the left carries a fake M07 Carbine, the one at the right has a TT holster on his belt but this holster may be empty. I'm now trying to find out who of these two is Polishchuk (it seems to me that this is the one at the left but I'm still not sure). --Greg-Z (talk) 14:56, 21 September 2021 (EDT)
I figured it out. Polishchuk's character is Maj. Dedukh, the head of the scout training school. On the photo he is at the right (and the character at the left is Portnov/Kokhanovskiy (Yakov Shamshin), one of his trainees with a carbine), and he carries a TT holster but unfortunately no image allows to say if there is a pistol inside or the holster is empty. So I'm not sure if we can add this film on Polishchuk's page. --Greg-Z (talk) 15:38, 21 September 2021 (EDT)


I apologize for being ahead but I want to correct the revolver in KochiKame. SW Model 25 has a large gap between the cylinder and the frame, while the screen revolver lacks such feature. I think that it's some .44 model with longer cylinder. Possibly a nickel plated Smith & Wesson Model 29, but more likely stainless steel Smith & Wesson Model 629. The screen gun is most likely a replica, as it's common for Japanese films, and this may explain the slightly different position of the screws on the frame. I'm not absolutely sure about 29/629, but it matches better than Model 25. --Greg-Z (talk) 04:11, 18 October 2021 (EDT)

The TT looks somewhat unnatural. If I see correct, it lacks the extractor (the last screenshot), the grips are too thick, the slide serration slightly differs, and the dull dark grey surface makes me feel it plastic (?). I have a strong suspect that the screen gun is a replica, maybe an airsoft gun, or a non-firing or even a toy. Other guns seem to be OK. The helicopters (I think, these are CGIs) look like AH-1S Cobra, armed with General Dynamics M197 Vulcan rotary guns. --Greg-Z (talk) 14:29, 18 October 2021 (EDT)

Thank you for help in adding categories to images!

This is a necessary job that not everyone wants to do... --Greg-Z (talk) 11:07, 12 November 2021 (EST)


I greatly appreciate your asssistance on the Ted Mikels page, and all of the other things you've helped with.LJ (talk) 17:34, 12 November 2021 (EST)

The Magnificent Kotobuki

I apologize for my bad habit of getting ahead, but I would still like to make a few comments on the upcoming page The Magnificent Kotobuki.

  • First, the submachine guns aren't Orita as these Romanian SMGs never had neither barrel shrouds nor curved magazines. These guns look more like fictional version of Type 100 submachine gun with magazines attached not from side but from below, with magazine wells similar to PPS-43.
  • Second, the lever action rifle looks different from Winchester 1894 as it lacks a loading gate on the side of the receiver. The place where the loading gate must be positioned, is covered by a handguard. There is something like a loading gate on the top of the receiver (Kouya no Kotobuki Hikoutai E04 rifle 1 3.jpg) but maybe it's some different feature. Anyway, I don't know about any lever action gun that is loaded from the top. Maybe such guns exist, I only don't know such. What is also strange is the handguard: on the 1_4 screenshot it is seen from the right side and extends from the trigger guard to the rear sight, while on the left side that is seen on 1_5 the handguard is much longer, extending until the barrel band. Also note the heavy octagon barrel on 1_5 and the gap between the barrel and the tube magazine. Again, I don't know what lever action gun has such feature. I suppose that this gun is fictional, inspired by various Winchester rifles but not a correct depiction of any real rifle. Of course, I don't known each and every gun that existed, so maybe some real weapon with such features exists. But as for now, I wouldn't advise to call the screen gun a Winchester.
  • Hope it would help. --Greg-Z (talk) 11:28, 1 February 2022 (EST)
Please don't be offended, but I must say that you are not approaching the case very carefully. Let's take a closer look. Both twin and single aircraft mounted guns have perforated barrel shrouds, very different from Rh202 and Aden (and it's worth noting that Rh202 was never used on airplanes). Among the guns that were really used in twin turret mountings on WWII airplanes Browning M2 Aircraft seems to be a best guess. As the planes are Japanese, possibly a Ho-103, Japanese version of M2 Aircraft is meant by the artist. But original American M2 Aircraft matches better, as far as I can see, judging by the shape of front parts of the barrels. Single guns also resemble M2 Aircraft but with some difference in the perforation of barrel shrouds. Perhaps this is a deviation made by the artist from the real sample, since in general the similarity is clear. --Greg-Z (talk) 14:11, 1 February 2022 (EST)
I forgot to mention: Lewis guns are more likely Type 92, judging by the magazines. --Greg-Z (talk) 14:15, 1 February 2022 (EST)
Look on this one Japanese aircraft machine gun: Type 3. I didn't know about it earlier but as I came across this machine gun, I think now that it matches screen turret-mounted guns even better than original M2 Aircraft, so the difference in the perforation is explained. Type 3 is a nearly exact version of M2 Aircraft but it is chambered in 13.2x99mm Hotchkiss.--Greg-Z (talk) 15:11, 1 February 2022 (EST)

About the planes: I know little about Japanese warplanes, this isn't my special point of interest. But if the planes themselves are identified correctly (I hope that we can trust the fan community), then you may just look in wikipedia for the armament of these planes. For example, A6M Zero is armed with wing-wounted Type 99 Mark 1 autocannons and two Type 97 machine guns over engine, while A6M3 has same weapons except the long barreled Type 99 Mark 2 are used. And so on. Some rework would be needed in this case, as Type 99 cannons are mounted on a variety of planes which are to be composed in a corresponding section.

And a minor correction: I guess that Type 100 SMG would be "fictionalized" (based on something real but with imaginary details) rather than "futurized".--Greg-Z (talk) 06:41, 2 February 2022 (EST)

I looked again on pistols and came to some ideas. First, Lahti have grips that look more like Luger. Here is a photo of both Lahti and Luger. The screen guns look like crossbreed between these two, generally Lahti but with different grips. Second, I'm not sure, but it seems to me that Nambu pistols look more like Nambu Type A 1902 "Baby Nambu". Compare the rear part of the pistol, it looks different from Nambu Type 14 but somewhat resembles "Baby Nambu". I'm very unsure in this moment, maybe I'm wrong, and these pistols are still Type 14, only combining the rear part of late model with the front part of early model. Hope it would be useful. --Greg-Z (talk) 14:35, 2 February 2022 (EST)

It's me again :) Have you seen the page for this anime on IMPDB?. If not, it may be helpful for identifying the planes that are still not identified.--Greg-Z (talk) 14:52, 2 February 2022 (EST)

Broken titles

Please don't rename broken titles. Bunny offers to make a script that will rename all titles and correct links, to avoid manual work. --Greg-Z (talk) 05:31, 5 September 2022 (UTC)

Hi, Silent!

First - Got it, I'm gonna have to edit that.
Second - The shotgun in the alternate poster of Block Z looks almost nothing like the one in the movie and looks rather off, I thought it would be interesting to put in the alt page.
Lastly, how exactly do I do so? Thank you! --Dnkakusei (talk) 00:57, 10 December 2022 (UTC)


I got your info about Block Z's shotgun, and tagging screenshots. Also that thing about identifying unknown actors in some old Philippine-made B movies sounds interesting, though considering the state of cinema back then, I think it'll be hard to track them down... we could try, though. --Dnkakusei (talk) 06:02, 18 December 2022 (UTC)

Revolver Lily

I noticed that you uploaded an image from Revolver Lily to lead actress Haruka Ayase's page; are you going to make the page for that movie? --Dnkakusei (talk) 12:33, 29 May 2024 (UTC)
