Airsoft Guns

A large portion of episode 5, Brittle Bullet, centers around an airsoft game between several of the series protagonists. Given FLCL's tendency towards exaggeration, these replicas are shown ejecting brass and having muzzle flashes with each shot.

MAC-11

Naota Nandaba uses a pair of MAC-11 submachine guns during the airsoft game.

Franchi SPAS-12

During the airsoft game, Kanti uses a Franchi SPAS-12 shotgun with the stock removed. In addition to being portrayed as if it were a live-fire weapon, it is seen being fired on full auto (while the real SPAS-12 can only fire either pump-action or semi-auto).

Luger P08 "Artillery" Model

Kamon Nandaba's preferred airsoft weapon is a pair of Luger P08 "Artillery" Model pistols. He also has shoulder stocks attached to them in several scenes.

Over-sized Weapons

The giant robot in episode 5 is seen using several gargantuan firearms. As opposed to most mecha in anime that use specialized weaponry, this one uses weapons that are simply regular firearms that are scaled up to match its size.

On a side note, the battle between Haruhara and the robot (especially Harhara's bunny-girl outfit) is a self-referencing parody of the Daicon III and Daicon IV shortfilms that marked the animation debut of Studio Gainax's founders.

Winchester Model 1892

The first weapon that the robot uses is a scaled-up Winchester Model 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine lever-action rifle with a sawed-off stock.

Winchester 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine - .32WCF/.38-40/.44-40/.25-20.

When Haruhara closes the distance between her and the robot, it responds by drawing an over-sized Colt Peacemaker revolver.
