A Beretta 93R is detailed on a poster in Minami's house. Aoi also takes a Beretta 93R when she goes to live at Kio's place later giving it to Manami who then on uses it as her preferred sidearm. The shape of the compensator holes suggests that a KSC M93R was used for reference when the series was animated.
Manami's Beretta 93R poster is visible in the background in episode 1.
Aoi's 93R is brought to Kio's inside a guitar case in episode 3.

Smith & Wesson Model 500
Aoi suddenly "apports" a Smith & Wesson Model 500 and aims it at her driver when he makes some snide comment about her relationship with Kio in episode 1. Note Aoi did fire the weapon inside the car. The sound alone would have made both her and the driver deaf.

A closeup of the frame of the revolver just after Aoi "apports" it to herself.
Aoi points the gun at her driver.
A closer view of the revolver.
Smith & Wesson Model 629 Performance Centre
Jack has a modified revolver that fires tranquillizer rounds, which appears to be based off of a Smith & Wesson Model 629 Performance Centre. It has either a 4 or 5 inch barrel, and is possibly the V-Comp model with out the removable compensator.
Smith & Wesson Performance Centre "Stealth Hunter" - .44 Magnum
Jack firing her revolver in episode 2.
From this front view it is clear that the barrel of the revolver does not come from the bottom of the cylinder, so it is not a model of Mateba Autorevolver
as previously suggested.
A number of possible Model 629 Performance Centres are visible in the gun dealers in episode 5, in both stainless steel and black finishes.

The top half of the gun with the slide removed, showing the internal workings of the prop weapon.
Unlike the Blu-ray release as pictured above, the original aired version of the episode depicted this gun as a straight model gun, rather than an electronic prop weapon.

Kio firing Aoi's Airweight during target practice in episode 8.
Manami turns Aoi's Airweight on her during a sparing session.
Aoi uses a Glock 18 during the attempted train rescue in episode 4.
Glock 18C (3rd generation) - 9x19mm
Aoi fires her Glock from a motorcycle as she approaches the train. In this show the selector switch on the rear of the frame is visible showing it to be a Glock 18
Aoi aims her Glock at the disarmed "Underside of the Kitten Paw" members. Here the under barrel rail identifying this as a 3rd generation model is visible.
Later in the episode, Aoi uses a Glock without the under barrel rail. Although it is possible that this is a different weapon, it is more likely an inconsistency in the artwork.
Jens carries a Beretta 80 series "Cheetah" in episode 5, which she resorts to after her power suit is disabled. It is unclear exactly which model this is, but it is an older version with the rounded trigger guard rather than the squared one of the FS version.
Beretta 84 (earlier version with round trigger guard) .380 ACP
Jens draw her Cheetah on Aoi.

A view of the Nambu from behind, as Kio's Assist-a-roid is surrounded by Dogisians.
A Tokarev TT-33 can be seen in episode 11, used by a terrorist holding Kio hostage.
Tokarev TT-33 - 7.62x25mm Tokarev. Pre-1947 version.
The terrorist pointing his cocked TT-33 at Kio with one hand, and holding a remote detonator with the other.
This pistol can be noted as a WWII era Tokarev due to its wide slide serrations.
Manami has a Franchi SPAS-12 in her weapons collection in one episode.
Franchi SPAS-12 Short Barreled Version - 12 Gauge
Manami's SPAS-12 is of the short barreled variety, and appears to have been modified to take a rail on the side of the pump.

A cult member is disarmed by Aoi, dropping her MP-9
Cult members continue to use MP-9s in episode 5. Note that in this shot there is a drawing error, where the butt plate of the folded stock is cut off above the hand, but the bottom of the butt plate is still visible protruding from the bottom of the hand.
From episode 7, security members for the cult carry their MP-9s in skeleton thigh holsters when wearing civilian clothes.

Sara and Maya using their MP-9s with stocks unfolded.
One of the "Underside of the Kitten Paw" cult members in episode 5 uses a MAC-10 rather than the Brügger & Thomet MP-9 which is used by the majority of the armed cult members.
Ingram MAC-10 open bolt submachine gun - .45 ACP
Note that the cult member has not pulled back the bolt on her MAC-10, so in real life she would be unable to fire the weapon.
Heckler & Koch MP7
Manami has a pair of Heckler & Koch MP7s in her virtual armoury in episode 6.
Heckler & Koch MP7A1 with factory magazine and iron sights - 4.6x30mm. This MP7 shown in Autopistol configuration.

Colt Model 723 - 5.56x45mm.
Manami has a Colt Model 723 in her collection in episode 1. Note the circled area, which shows the receiver stamp reading "COLT M4A1". Due to the straight profile barrel and M16A1 type non detachable carry handle this cannot be the case
Colt Carbines are used by the soldiers guarding the airbase in episode 2.
Manami has a number of Colt Model 723s in her virtual armoury in episode 6. Note the presence of forward assist and shell deflector, meaning that this is not a Model 653 as previously suggested.

A close-up of the barrel of Aoi's Model 723, showing the straight profile barrel, as opposed to the step down barrel of an M4.
M16A1 rifles are seen a number of times throughout the series. Although they are sometimes fitted with A2 handguards, the rear sights indicated these rifles to be A1s.
A number of M16A1s can be seen in Manami's collection in episode 1.
A "Beautiful Contact" member cleans hi M16A1 whilst preparing for action.

An M16A1 can be seen on a table in the "Beautiful Contact" base of operations.
Manami readies her M16A1 rifle (Note the A1 shape forward assist). Manami remarks when asked if she can use it that it is the same as an MGC
. This raises the possibility that all of the weapons in her collection in episode 1 are replicas/airsoft.
M16A1s are present in Manami's virtual armoury in episode 6. Although they are fitted with A2 handguards, they have A1 style carry handles and lack brass deflectors. Also, the centre M16 is fitted with an M203
Another pair of M16s as seen in Manami's armoury.
Steyr AUG A1
A Steyr AUG A1 is one of the numerous firearms in Manami's collection.
From episode 2, a Steyr AUG A1 with black stock is briefly seen on a shelf in Manami's room.

Winchester Model 1873
Manami has a pair of Winchester Model 1873s in her virtual armoury in episode 6.
Winchester Model 1873 carbine - 1st generation rifle - 44-40 Cal.
Although not a perfect match for a Model 1873, this is the rifle which Manami's most resemble.
Aoi takes a SVD Dragunov-S when she goes to live at Kio's place in episode 3, which is fitted with a wooden pistol grip and forearm.
Dragunov-S Tiger shortened sniper rifle - 7.62x54mm R

and Beretta 93R
that were previously in the case.

Heckler & Koch PSG-1s are seen in the background in several episodes, but are never used.
Heckler & Koch PSG-1 - 7.62x51mm NATO
In episode 5, a PSG-1 is visible in the gun dealer's, resting on its bi-pod on a counter.
Another view of a PSG-1 in the gun dealer's. When the camera pans however (as shown in the right half of the frame) the middle of the weapon is briefly exposed from behind the mortar to show that the weapon is drawn without a pistol grip or magazine.
Manami has a pair of PSG-1s in her virtual armoury in episode 6. They appear to be fitted with wooden hand and cheek rests. Oddly however, the pistol grip (the one piece of the rifle that is actually wood) is plastic.
Manami has a pair of Heckler & Koch G3SG/1s in her virtual armoury in episode 6.
Heckler & Koch G3SG/1 - 7.62x51mm NATO
At this level of detail it is hard to tell whether this is a G3SG/1 or a regular G3 fitted with a telescopic sight.
Manami has a pair of Mosin Nagant M91/30s fitted with PU 3.5x scopes in her virtual armoury in episode 6.
Full-length, Mosin Nagant M91/30 Sniper Rifle with Russian PU 3.5x sniper scope and down turned bolt handle - 7.62x54R
Although these weapons are fitted with PU 3.5x scopes, they lack the down-turned bolt handle of the actual sniper variant.
A pair of human assassins hired by the Dogisian Jens use an SVD Dragunov in episode 8.
SVD Dragunov sniper rifle - 7.62x54mm R
The rifle is fitted with a NSPUM-2 IR sight, and has a black synthetic forearm similar to the SVD-M and a bi-pod clamped to the receiver.
The device mounted under the barrel is an IR laser.
Barrett M82s are seen in several episodes, used by Aoi and members of the "Underside of the Kitten Paw" cult.
The M82A1 falling to Aoi's hand after she "apports" it to her in episode 10. In this shot, as the gun falls it can briefly be seen that the sight rail and scope have been omitted from the drawing.
Aoi takes up positing behind her M82. In this shot the rifle has a full length rail on the upper receiver, indicating it is an M107.
In the following shot however, the rifle is clearly an M82A1, lacking the full length rail.
Sara aims an M107 in episode 12, with her Assist-a-roid acting as her spotter. Note that it is not an error that she is right handed and aiming with her left eye, but a necessity due to the fact that she has a patch over her right eye.
Note the extremely large horizontal muzzle flash that is created by the muzzle brake of the M107.
A side view of the rifle showing how it is mounted in a human built Assist-a-roid. Note that in this shot the rifle has lost the full length top rail, appearing as an M82A1.
Type 11 Light Machine Gun
A Type 11 Light Machine Gun is seen being used by a Japanese soldier on the cover of a DVD belonging to Manami in episode 1.
Type 11 Light Machine Gun - 6.5x50mm Arisaka.
Note how the soldier has a piece of material wrapped around the barrel to protect his hand from the heat, due to the lack of a hand-guard on the Type 11
The DVD is also seen at the end of the episode, when Manami is in her apartment.
Browning M2HB Heavy Machine Gun
Browning M2HB heavy machine guns are seen being used by terrorists and military forces.

handheld M134 Minigun with 'Chainsaw grip' to handle the recoil force. This variant was seen in Terminator 2: Judgement Day
. This is an airsoft version which retains the half-circle attachment point for the M60 foregrip from Predator
; the real T2 minigun did not have this - (fake) 7.62x51mm NATO
The muzzle end of Manami's virtual Minigun.
Rightly, Manami cannot lift the weight of the Minigun.
note the joystick at the back of the weapon, similar to the Minigun shown above.
The "Underside of the Kitten Paw" cult use MG3s mounted on motorcycle side cars in episode 7.
MG3 Machine Gun - 7.62x51mm NATO
This weapon can be identified as an MG3 rather than an MG42 by the design of the muzzle. Also, the sight mounted on top is the removable anti aircraft sight for an MG3.
A front view of the weapon showing that it is red from a 50 round circular drum.
An MG34 can briefly be seen in episode 11, mounted as the forward machine gun on a Tiger I tank.
A number of Assist-a-roids climb an a Tiger in order to scan it's technology to replicate it. The MG34 is visible in a ball mount on the front of the hull.
M203 grenade launchers are seen multiple times in the series, mounted under M16A1 assault rifles.
M16A1 with M203 grenade launcher - 40x46mm

A Mk 19 can be seen on the Humvee that is disabled by a net around the wheel.
DefTech 37mm Launcher
On of the "Underside of the Kitten Paw" cult members uses a DefTech 37mm launcher in episode 4. It is used to fire non-lethal rounds at Aoi, and appears to be of the folding stock variety with the stock removed. It is not a Milkor MGL as previously suggested, due to the length of the chambers, the design of the trigger guard and lower frame, and the absence of the release lever on the front of the chambers.
Defense Technologies/Federal Laboratories launcher 37mm with folding stock
One of the cult members prepares to fire her Deftech at Aoi. It appears that this launcher is fitted with a different forward grip, similar to the one found on a Milkor MGL.
In this shot you can see the bottom of the frame of the gun, which matches that of the Deftech.
The whole of the launcher can only be briefly seen when the train is escaping. Note that from the length of the chambers, this cannot be a Milkor MGL.
General Electric M61 Vulcan
A 20mm M61 Vulcan can be seen mounted on a JMSDF patrol boat, and as part of a General Dynamics/Raytheon Phalanx Close-In Weapon System on the "Underside of the Kitten Paw" ship.
Although never clearly shown, this multi barreled weapon in most likely supposed to be a JM61 (Japanese version of the M61) which is used in a turreted mounting resembling this by the JMSDF. Also, in dialogue it is referred to as a 20mm by the crew.

An Abrams as seen in episode 12.
In episode 5 a Blackhawk helicopter fires a pair of AGM-114 Hellfires, that has been modified by the Catians to be cloaked in flight.
The Blackhawk in question is armed with 8 modified Hellfires in two quad launchers. The missiles have been cosmetically changed by colouring them red.
Hellfires are also seen in episode 12, being fired from NATO AH64D Apache Longbows. Note that there is a drawing mistake in this shot, where the Hellfires mounted under the right wing are partly obscured by the fuselage as if they were mounted underneath the helicopter fuselage itself.
An unidentified mortar can be seen in the gun dealer's in episode 5.
It is likely that this mortar is a complete fabrication, as the bipod appears too light for a real mortar.
