Morita Mk I Rifle

Morita Mk I Rifle; this example is missing the M60-style muzzle brake fitted to the rifle barrel.

The full-sized Morita rifle is used by Mobile Infantry standard/enlisted soldiers with the Morita Carbine being carried by fleet pilots and officers (See below). The weapons themselves are built around Ruger Mini-14/AC-556 rifles with the full-size rifles also containing an underslung short-barreled Ithaca 37 shotgun. The weapons utilize a modified Muzzelite MZ14 Bullpup stock to house the Ruger AC-556 rifles and the Ithaca 37 shotguns (for the Morita rifle only). The Morita rifles and carbines in the film also feature a muzzle brake from the M60 GPMG.

This weapon is used by the following actors in the film:
