'''''Battlestar Galactica''''' is the weekly series "reboot" of the 1978 ABC sci-fi television series of the same name.  The series followed the last remnants of the human population of the twelve colonies after the near decimation by a biomechanical race known as the Cylons.  Unlike the original series, the majority of the weapons used are authentic weapons visually modified for the production.  This "reboot" began as a [[Battlestar Galactica: The Miniseries (2003)|Sci-Fi Channel miniseries]] that first aired in 2003.  Subsequently, the weekly series aired for four seasons on the Sci-Fi Channel from 2004 to 2009 and would spawn television films, several webisodes, a prequel series (''[[Caprica]]'') and a prequel film (''[[Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome]]'').

== Colonial Handgun (Smith & Wesson Model 686) ==
 
 
A heavily modified [[Smith & Wesson Model 686]] L-Frame revolver is portrayed as the standard Colonial sidearm in both the ''Battlestar Galactica'' mini-series and the first season.  Among other features the weapon has an under barrel explosive launcher (like the old LeMat "grapeshot" barrel,) although the explosive launcher was never used onscreen. The Miniseries version had hardly any real functionality and was redesigned almost from scratch for Season 1 when scripts required more specific actions with the guns. After that it was redesigned again and, starting with the early second season, the original sidearms have been nearly completely replaced by the FN Five-seveN. These guns were inconvenient as they had to be disassembled before they could be reloaded. They later returned during the flashback scenes in "Razor."
 
 
The gun appears to have been intentionally designed to resemble the gun used by Rick Deckard in [[Blade Runner#LAPD 2019 blaster|Blade Runner]]  (probably to emphasize the realistic tone of this series, as opposed to a "future show with laser-guns").  It also notable that series star [[Edward James Olmos]] also played the mysterious police officer Gaff in ''Blade Runner''.

== Colonial Standard Military Sidearm (FN FiveseveN) ==
 
From Season 2 to the end, this weapon became the standard ''Colonial Military'' sidearm.  It is a slightly modified original-run [[FN FiveseveN]].  It keeps the underbarrel explosive launcher. This changeover allows for real semi-automatic fire and makes use of the existing stores of 5.7 x 28mm blank ammunition. The explosive launcher was muzzle loaded, and was featured in the second season episode "Valley of Darkness," but not prominently afterward.

== Stallion (COP 357 Derringer) ==
 
 
Referred by Chief Tyrol as the "Stallion", this 4 shot .357 Magnum is in reality a [[COP 357 Derringer]].  Seen pulled by both "Caprica" Sharon ([[Grace Park]]) and Meier ([[James Remar]]) in Season 2's "Home, Part 2" (S2E07).  Romo Lampkin ([[Mark Sheppard]]) also threatens Lee Adama with one in Season 4's "Sine Qua Non" (S4E08).

== Heckler & Koch Mark 23 Mod 0 ==
 
 
The [[Heckler & Koch Mk 23 Mod 0]] fitted with a Phase II LAM is one of the two weapons Samuel Anders ([[Michael Trucco]]) is seen handling while on Caprica.
 
 
[[Image:Mk23.jpg|thumb|none|400px|Heckler & Koch Mark 23 Mod 0 - .45 ACP]]

== Vektor CP1 ==
 
 
Cropping up now and again is the South African [[Vektor CP1]].  The handgun is mostly seen in the hands of non-military personnel, although they appear to be issued to the security detail of President Laura Roslin ([[Mary McDonnell]]). Lee Adama ([[Jamie Bamber]]) also is seen holding one on Phelan ([[Bill Duke]]) in Season 2's "Black Market."

A [[CZ 52]] is used by one of the terrorists during the siege of ''Cloud 9''. A Number 5 also holds one to President Baltar's head in "Precipice" to force Baltar to sign death warrants. He uses it to shoot a Number Six to demonstrate his resolve.

== Desert Eagle ==
 
 
A stainless [[Desert Eagle]] is also one of the sidearms carried in the series by Anders. In Season 2's "Downloaded", he briefly loses it after blowing up a Cylon-occupied building on Caprica when ''D'anna'' ([[Lucy Lawless]]), a Number 3, seizes it and threatens to kill him before being beaten to death by Number 8.  The weapon is nickel plated and is sometimes replaced with non-gun version.

=Submachine guns=
 
 
== FN P90 ==
 
For the mini-series and Season 1, the [[FN P90]] was the main assault weapon of the Colonial Marines aboard the ''Galactica''.  The attachments for the weapons (flashlight, red dot sight) are somewhat the norm for the "real world" the only difference being the attachment of a suppressor which seems to be more for dramatic effect than anything else, though may have been used to disguise the use of PS90 semi-automatic civilian models. In later seasons, the Beretta Cx4 Storm would replace this SMG, most likely due to the P90's prominent use in the series  ''[[Stargate SG-1]]''.  However, the P90 would still be used (in a more minor role) throughout the run of the series.

== Heckler & Koch MP7A1 ==
 
Another weapon used by the Colonials is the [[Heckler & Koch MP7A1]].  The major addition to the weapon itself is an ELCAN optical sight rather than a red dot or basic iron sights.

== Heckler & Koch UMP ==
 
The [[Heckler & Koch UMP]] is seen in the hands of Sam Anders as well as some of the Colonial Marines guarding the ''Pegasus''.  The UMP in the series doesn't appear to have been fitted with any special modifications.
 
 
[[Image:UMP 45.jpg|thumb|none|400px|]]

[[Image:Anders'UMP4.jpg|thumb|none|500px|Anders with the UMP in Season 2's "The Farm".]]
 
 
== Beretta M12 ==
 
The [[Beretta M12]] is one of the weapons recovered from the hidden cache during the escape from New Caprica. It was first seen in the hands of Resistance members in season 2.

== Ruger MP9 ==
 
The [[Ruger MP9]] is seen being carried by Karl "Helo" Agathon ([[Tahmoh Penikett]]) just before he and Starbuck encounter the Resistance.

== Cobray M11/9 ==
 
Anders also is seen using a [[Cobray M11/9]] non-gun fitted with a thread protector in Season 2's "Downloaded".
 
[[Image:M11 2.jpg|thumb|none|300px|Cobray M11/9 9x19mm.  This is the semiautomatic pistol, note how the selector switch is on the opposite side of the receiver and the pins are in different places on the receiver.]]

== Feather AT-9 Pistol ==
 
(Based on photographic evidence only) A pistol version of the Feather AT-9 Carbine was apparently used as the basis for the Cylon Pistol.  The pistol grip was replaced with a FN FAL grip and an additional 'notch' was cut into the receiver tube to hold the bolt, since it had been converted into an open bolt select fire weapon (The original AT-9 was a closed bolt semi auto only firearm).

=Rifles=
 
 
== Beretta CX4 Storm ==
 
 
From Season 2 to the end of the series, the [[Beretta CX4 Storm]] is the standard long gun of the Colonial Marines on board the ''Galactica'' and the ''Pegasus''.  The weapons themselves have various attachments including a rail system with red dot sight, flashlight attachments, and a custom flash hider.

[[Image:BSGCx4c.jpg|thumb|none|500px|]]
 
 
== L85A1 ==
 
 
The [[Enfield L85 rifle series#L85A1|L85A1]] is seen in Season 1 flashbacks as well as in the special features of the Season 1 DVD.  The weapons in the show themselves lack the optical sights and have the whole lower receiver and muzzle guard painted white indicating they may only be used for ceremonial purposes.  In the Season 2 episodes "Resistance" and "The Farm", a couple of L85A1's with the SUSAT scope are seen in the hands of the resistance fighters on Caprica, suggesting that the SA80 is a standard issue rifle in the Colonial military.

== Heckler & Koch G36K ==
 
The [[Heckler & Koch G36]]K model assault rifle is seen almost exclusively in the hands of Colonial military personnel.  Kara "Starbuck" Thrace ([[Katee Sackhoff]]) is armed with the G36 in Season 2's "Lay Down Your Burdens, Part 2".

== Norinco Type 84S ==
 
 
The [[AK-47#Norinco Type 84S|Norinco Type 84S]] is another weapon seen in the hands of a Resistance fighter after its recovery from the arms cache on New Caprica.  Not clear what the exact weapon is but it may have been a folding stock ''Norinco 84'' given the shape of the magazine making it a 5.56mm weapon and not a 7.62mmx39. The Norinco Type 84 rifle was seen in the hands of a resistance fighter on Caprica in the Season 2 episode "Lay Down Your Burdens: Part 2" as well.

[[Image:BSG 3105.jpg|thumb|none|500px|]]
 
 
== Remington 700 (Choate Ultimate Sniper Stock) ==
 
A [[Remington 700]] is seen in the hands of a resistance fighter on Caprica in Season 2's "Resistance".  This particular weapon has a telescopic sight and is fitted with a Choate Ultimate Sniper/Target riflestock with a bipod.

== Seburo MN-23 ==
 
 
In the Miniseries, the Colonial security personnel on Galactica are armed with this bullpup assault rifle. It bears a resemblance to a short-barreled FAMAS with a Picatinny rail mount. This rifle was actually designed by Masamune Shirow for the Dominion: Conflict comic series, and is known as the Seburo MN-23. No known working model of this gun has been seen, so odds are during the mini-series they were the airsoft props with added flashlights. Obviously since this weapon doesn't fire or technical crew changed their minds to the Cx4, this weapon along with the Raisen only appeared briefly during one scene on the Ragnar station during the mini-series. This rifle appears to be a standard weapon for the non-military security personnel onboard Galactica.

== CQB TYPE-0 "RAISEN" ==
 
 
The weapon possessed by Leoben Conoy (a Number 2) at Ragnar Station is a fictional variant of the AR-15, known as the Close Quarters Battle Weapon Type Zero, aka the "Raisen". It is a model gun designed by Poseidon Industries of Japan, a company that also makes the Seburo MN-23. In the Mini-series, Leoben's Raisen had a flashlight, sling and sight attachment to it. It is most likely a non firing prop since no known working model of the Raisen has even been seen to my knowledge. Obviously since this weapon doesn't fire or technical crew changed their minds to the Cx4, this weapon along with the MN-23 only appeared briefly during one scene on the Ragnar station during the mini-series.

A [[Daewoo K3]] (fitted with RIS and KAC vertical grip, to imitate an [[FN Minimi|FN Minimi SPW]] is glimpsed briefly in the ''Razor'' movie, used in the final assault on the Cylon Basestar and also seen in the arms cache in Season 3's "Exodus, Part 3".

== Armsel Striker ==
 
 
This distinctive South African shotgun [[Armsel Striker]] makes a few appearances in the series but not in its primary role.  Instead, as in numerous shows, it's shown as a grenade launcher.

== Mossberg 500 Bullpup ==
 
 
The [[Mossberg 500]] Bullpup conversion of the classic pump shotgun is carried by the rioting prisoners on the prison ship.  Presumably a law enforcement issue weapon since it is not seen in the hands of any ''Colonial'' military personnel.

== Cobray 37mm Launcher ==
 
 
During the siege of Kobol, Chief Tyrol is seen using this single shot grenade launcher against the ''Cylon'' radar dish.  The weapon itself appears to have some ornamentation (a jacket over the barrel) so it is a little difficult to identify. However, given the presence of complete trigger guard, cocking handle and the shape of the stock it is not a stand alone [[M203]] but the [[Cobray M79LF]].

=Adm. Cain's Gun Case=
 
In Season 2's "Pegasus" and in the film "Razor", Adm. Helena Cain ([[Michelle Forbes]]) is seen with a collection of guns in her ready room:
 
 
=== Flintlock pistols ===
 
A pair of [[Flintlock Pistol]]s are on display in Adm. Cain's office in Season 2's "Pegasus".

Battlestar Galactica (2004-2009)

Battlestar Galactica is the weekly series "reboot" of the 1978 ABC sci-fi television series of the same name. The series followed the last remnants of the human population of the twelve colonies after the near decimation by a biomechanical race known as the Cylons. Unlike the original series, the majority of the weapons used are authentic weapons visually modified for the production. This "reboot" began as a Sci-Fi Channel miniseries that first aired in 2003. Subsequently, the weekly series aired for four seasons on the Sci-Fi Channel from 2004 to 2009 and would spawn television films, several webisodes, a prequel series (Caprica) and a prequel film (Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome).

The following lists the seasons of the reboot of Battlestar Galactica:
