re: BO edit
I don't mind as saying that it is a GAU-5A/A with an imaginary flat top, but the thing I would object to is actually titling the section "GAU-5A/A" rather than "Commando". When a section is titled after a real gun that is us saying that the gun in question is that gun. That is not the case here, as the Commando is essentially a fictional gun that may (or in fact may not) be based on a GAU-5A/A. In these cases it is our convention to title the section whatever the gun is called in game with quoatation marks, so in this case "Commando". Also, on the topic of this edit what specifically made you say that the AK is an AK-74 prototype? To me, one of the things that we can tell for sure is that it is definitely not that, as it has the hardware for a folding stock on the receiver (button at the back, catch at the front to hold the folded stock) so it is either based on an AKS-74, AK-74M, or a 100 series AK. The problem is that all of those have 90 degree gas blocks whilst this gun has a 45 degree one, and all of those guns have AK-74 front sights and muzzle brakes and this gun doesn't (I can't tell what front sight it has, in the 3rd person image it looks like a wide AK-47 type one but i think this is just weird scaling and it is actually a narrow AKM type one). When you add on to this the fact that it has smooth wood handguard without a palm swell, a type 2 AK fixed stock, and a type 3 AK receiver mounted rear sling loop, I think it is pretty fair to call this thing a composite. --commando552 (talk) 07:44, 28 March 2018 (EDT)
- The main obvious difference between an AKM and AK-74 FSB is that the latter has a bayonet lug, but it isn't just stuck on there, it is on an extension coming out the back of it. There are other differences like how the cleaning rod is retained, but the most obvious is the bayonet lug. Here is an AKM one, and here is an AK-74 one for comparison. In these image you can also see that there is a big difference with how the muzzle threads are, as on the AKM the barrel is threaded but with the 74 the front sight block holds the threading which is larger diameter. There is another front sight block which is the Romanian one which looks a bit more like an AKM one with just the bayonet lug stuck underneath (here) which doesn't have the lug coming off of the back due top how the Romanian brake is narrow so is slightly longer. I'll have a go at fixing the entries in the page later when I'm home from work to try and clear things up a bit. --commando552 (talk) 13:49, 28 March 2018 (EDT)
So, if you're wondering why I moved the M2 Carbine and Thompson Carbine back into the Assault Rifles category, here's my reasoning: .30 Carbine is an intermediate rifle cartridge. You yourself acknowledged that by placing the Hyde Carbine images under the "Rifle-Caliber" section of Category:Carbine. Therefore, the M2 and the Thompson are both select-fire rifles firing intermediate cartridges from detachable magazines, which is (according to the introduction of the Category:Assault Rifle page) the very definition of an assault rifle. As for separating out the Rifles, Carbines & Battle Rifles section, I don't think that that would be a good idea. Splitting off the carbines would lead to all sorts of debates as to what is and isn't a carbine (e.g. whether or not the M38 Mosin should be there, whether or not the Winchester Model 1873 should be there, or if only the carbine-length version and not the rifle-length version should, etc.), and splitting out battle rifles could cause similar problems (e.g. does the SKS qualify, and if it does, then why doesn't, say, the ACR qualify). So, for simplicity's sake, I say we just leave it as-is for now. Oh, and by the way, thank you for creating the H3VR redirect. I'd been meaning to do that for a while now, but I'd never gotten around to it, in large part because I didn't have the damnedest clue how. Cheers, Pyr0m4n14c (talk) 10:41, 24 July 2018 (EDT) P.S.: Do you know how to link to a category page? I would've linked the ones mentioned here, but any attempts to do so resulted in the site instead classifying your talk page as an assault rifle.
- Fair enough, I can see why, and although I would question why the 300-meter effective range requirement is considered part of the definition (especially considering how it's essentially meant to exclude this one exact case, effective range isn't a consideration in any other category, and there are some things put there that don't have that long of a range - the APS Underwater Assault Rifle, SR-3M Vikhr, and KAC PDW I know for sure, and I seriously doubt that something like the AAC Honey Badger or CSA SA vz. 58 Compact can manage 300 meters either), that's not something to bring up with you in this discussion. And thanks a ton for the formatting/wikitext help. See ya, Pyr0m4n14c (talk) 13:51, 26 July 2018 (EDT)
Well, you maybe are right about not creating guns pages before correct ID, but I am almost sure that the gun in WW3 is a PM-06. The rails aren't included in civilian models, (something that is also seen in PR-15 Ragun civilian version, so maybe is a FB thing) but I thing I seen the flashlight/grip combination peculiar of the PM-06. So if you don't see it, you are right.--Dannyguns (talk) 08:54, 5 September 2018 (EDT)
RE: Battle Rifle Category
Ah, okay, thanks for the clarification. I was a bit unsure as to whether or not guns were allowed to "double-dip", so to speak. Actually, this does raise another question: Should the M1918A2 BAR stay? I mean, it was meant as an LMG, but in practical application, it was commonly used more like a heavy battle rifle. Thoughts? Pyr0m4n14c (talk) 09:48, 7 October 2018 (EDT) P.S.: Also, would you have any objection to me changing "Semi-Auto/Full-Auto" to "Select-Fire" and pulling in the Breda PG (and possibly the M1918A2 as well - it is selective fire, it's just full-auto or faster full-auto)? Having 2 separate categories with 3 guns between them right at the end just looks wrong, IMO.
Hi! I tend to think that isn't not a genuine RGD-5 as its body have two belts while original RGD-5s (all versions, live and dummy) have a single belt. Cyrillic letters "ИН" (IN) on the body may stand for "Inertnaya" (dummy) but such marking is placed below the belt on the body. I think that it's a mockup, possibly made of parts of genuine grenade.

Hey, just wondering if you need some screenshots of the weapons head over to https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/dotesports.com/call-of-duty/news/call-of-duty-black-ops-4-weapons-list/amp. The screencaps are directly from Activision themselves so its not stealing from Dote Sports so to speak. Might help until more screencaps are available. --Forrest1985 (talk) 03:17, 14 October 2018 (EDT)
ID'ing some AK variants in Hitman
Hi Ultimate94ninja, I'm looking to identify the AK variants in both Hitman 2016 and the upcoming sequel, wondering if you could help.
In the 2016 game, there's the RS-15:
While Hitman 2 has this model, but I'm certain it's not a direct AK-47 copy.
- Thanks for providing details, it's much appreciated. Certainly seems they had a customisation system in mind for 2016 like this, especially with the number of (especially, fictional) firearms with modular components compared to past instalments. Ok if I use your comments as the basis of content for the Hitman page?
re: Spider-Man poster
Okey, thank you! I didn't know that, I thought it just wasn't responding. Thanks!
That shouldn't be happening - what setup do you have that it always occurs on Recent Changes? If you give me the OS version of your Android and browser/browser version I can try and recreate it consistently to track it down. --bunni (talk) 14:34, 26 February 2019 (EST)
Re:AK in Republic Z
Thanks for help! I think that you are right, and the screen gun is really this airsoft AK-105. Many modern Russian movies use airsoft guns with CGI muzzle flashes. Speaking on MK-107, if this gun would really appear on screen, we may even make a special page under its final name, Kalashnikov SR1. For now, I agree, the best place for gun image would be on AK discussion page. Greg-Z (talk) 12:08, 10 March 2019 (EDT)

Yup! Had to clone a couple servers but we narrowed down the source and I can push a fix on the 8th of next month when we upgrade the servers. I'll have to freeze edits to the wiki and there will likely be several hours of downtime (up to 12). --bunni (talk) 12:33, 30 March 2019 (EDT)

I wanted to use the image with the tan furniture since it more closely matches what is seen in The Division games, while the image you uploaded seems to be a post-Danish contract model with a new handguard design.--AgentGumby (talk) 14:32, 17 May 2019 (EDT)

I am still somewhat confused about all the MPX variants, and apparently every single game has a hybrid MPX.

RE: Photoshop Alternative
- Not so much, actually: . People from IZhMekh said that it was outwardly identical to IZh-81K, with the only difference being that it had a actually underbarrel magazine. There was still some information, I will try to find. Unfortunately, it's extremely difficult to find a photos of any Russian weapons that weren't produced in tons. --Slon95 (talk) 20:33, 2 February 2020 (EST)
- "There was an earlier thing called IZh-80. There is don't has magazines' switch, but it is possible to insert a box magazine, for this the receiver's tray leans down. It even was adopted for service, but produced is very limited. With the switch was IZh82, also known as MP131K." "Then there was IZh-80, GRAU even took its into service, then a lot of things were accepted. But they didn't mass-produce it. ... IZh-80 and IZh-82/MP-131K are completely different systems." That's probably all. --Slon95 (talk) 09:05, 3 February 2020 (EST)

RE: WWZ Glock
Hello Ultimate94ninja, just wanted to ask: the photo of the AK-200 I uploaded to the AK-12 main article, is it not an AK-200? I took it from Maxim Popenker's Modern Firearms website (I included the source link, it says the photo is from the Kalashnikov Group). I included it for comparison, since there is a photo of the AK-200 prototype in that article. A photo of the AK-203 soon to be used by India is also included in this article. So it is the AK-200 series, according to these sources, I don't know why you say it's a different model. Also, I don't know if this should go in the AK-12 article, but maybe it'd be better to create a separate article for the AK-200 series? Thanks. --Ssantusky (talk) 22:37, 6 June 2020 (EDT)
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
But can it fire in full auto in-game or is it semi-auto only? I wouldn't know, I have never played the game. I know that the M21/M25 locks the selector in semi only, I just assumed from the pictures that the selector was locked in semi like an actual M21/M25 SWS. I guess I should have mentioned that in the summary of my edit. --TheFlyingDutchman (talk) 17:18, 14 June 2020 (EDT)
- I apologize. I was unaware of this button before. I thought that the selector on the M21/M25 SWS looked exactly the same as the M14, except on the M21/M25 SWS it was locked in semi-auto. Looks like I have some pages to fix. --TheFlyingDutchman (talk) 21:41, 14 June 2020 (EDT)
Thank you for clearing that up regarding the AK-200 development history, I wasn't aware of it. I thought that the current AK-200 was the result of continuing development on that same prototype you mentioned after finishing the final production AK-12. My bad. I'll be on the lookout for possible AK-200 appearances in the media. --Ssantusky (talk) 21:53, 14 June 2020 (EDT)
About CODM weapon screenshots
A few questions about the user's sandbox
XM1771E1 Late photo?
- RE: Oh yeah, the url tricks... I was too existed that I found an exact in game like XM1771E1 photo that forgot about checking the url. As for the image itself, I think it is genuine gun. The guy states: "Looking at the actual gun photos of Mod.609" this in addition to the gritty and worn out appearance of the gun makes me think it is genuine. Though, other details are puzzling me right now. Here we refer to the full-fence version as the "late model" while the guy refers to it as "pattern A" and the non-full-fence one as "pattern B", maybe he has it wrong? Also according to him the presence of a bayonet lug is a characteristic of the late/pattern A but I think that could be wrong as there is no point to issue the weapon with a bayonet lug considering that the bayonet cannot attach to this particular muzzle. Maybe someone just swapped the default bayonet lugless sight with an M16 one? --Nanomat (talk) 13:34, 26 February 2021 (EST)
hey, thanks! I'd been meaning to get an image of the Anaconda with its ammo box beside it but I couldn't get the lighting on the revolver to show the markings well, so I might replace it when I get a good pic. TheExplodingBarrel (talk) 16:55, 30 March 2021 (EDT)
I think it's a SUR300 just with a longer replacement handguard. It's supposed to be pretty modular anyway. I've found at least two different lengths on Google, though not as long as what's seen in the mod but even then its obviously patterned after the SUR300 handguard and it doesn't look like an earlier VIRTUS integral suppressor variant. --AgentGumby (talk) 20:29, 27 June 2021 (EDT)

"Credit/courtesy to Xtreme Props for the image shown."
A lot of our gun images that come from Xtreme Props have the phrase "Credit/courtesy to Xtreme Props for the image shown." on all of their image captions. Is there a rule or a deal that we made with Xtreme Props that required us to do that, or is it just a weird convention that we've inexplicably picked up? Wouldn't it be cleaner to leave the attributions on the file page, like what we do on most other gun images? --Wuzh (talk) 13:27, 23 January 2022 (EST)
