Pistols

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.

A Number 5 or Doral (Matthew Bennett) holds a Vektor CP1 to President Baltar's head to force him to sign death warrants in "Precipice" (S3E02). Felix Gaeta (Alessandro Juliani) pulls the Vektor CP1 on Baltar in "Exodus, Part 2" (S3E04).

Rifles

Beretta CX4 Storm

Norinco Type 84S

The 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.

Machine Guns

Daewoo K3

A Daewoo K3 (fitted with RIS and KAC vertical grip, to imitate an 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".

Shotguns

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.
