Firefly was a science fiction series that aired for one season on the FOX network. Created by Joss Whedon, the series starred Nathan Fillion as Malcolm Reynolds, the captain of a "Firefly"-class spaceship named "Serenity". Throughout the series, Reynolds and his crew travel through a distant solar system, making a rough living on frontier planets as smugglers while fighting various adversaries. The series mixed the "space opera" genre with certain elements of the Western, thus the mix of American Western weaponry with the more modern firepower. The series only aired 11 of its 14 episodes in 2002 before being canceled (the remaining episodes aired in 2003), but would subsequently gain cult status, leading to Whedon continuing the series' plot in the 2005 feature film Serenity. NOTE: The episode numbering is based on the order reflected in the subsequent video releases (the series actually aired out of sequence, see sortable table below.)

The following weapons were used in the television series Firefly:

Contents


Revolvers

Mal's Sidearm (Modified Taurus 85)

The signature pistol of Captain Malcolm Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) in the series is a Taurus Model 85 revolver completely covered by a brass casting to make it resemble a semi-auto handgun. The look of the weapon was based on the Volcanic repeaters used in the Civil War as explained by Firefly creator Joss Whedon in the visual companion book of the series. In the Firefly universe, the gun is a "Moses Brothers Self-Defense Engine Frontier Model B". The same prop gun was used for the feature Serenity, but given to a new prop house who made the magazine straight on the bottom, and bulked up the right side plate and added a spring loaded rear sight. This pistol was then held by Fillion in his series Castle.

Heckler & Koch G36K

In the series pilot episode "Serenity" (S1E01), The 'Browncoats' carry Heckler & Koch G36K rifles during the battle of Serenity Valley. These rifles are also held by Captain Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) and Zoë Alleyne Washburne (Gina Torres) in the episode.

Alliance Soldiers carry L85A1 rifles, notably during the battle of Serenity Valley, and across the episodes, such as "The Train Job" (S1E02). A few are also seen in the hands of Browncoats in war sequences, most notably Bendis in the Battle of Serenity in "Serenity" (S1E01).

FAMAS-223

In "Serenity" (S1E01), the FAMAS-223 is seen in the hands of Malcom during the battle of Serenity valley. He then drops it and picks up a G36K to capture an AA gun. Zoë in a scene also carried a FAMAS but it changed to a G36K when she started shooting. The rifle is the Civilian version of the FAMAS, imported briefly into the U.S. as the Semiautomatic FAMAS-223. It is virtually identical to the military FAMAS except for the lack of a full auto switch position and the barrel is not ridged (to take rifle grenades). The smooth outer barrel was an ATF requirement to be imported into the country. Soon after, the ATF declared all foreign "bullpup" rifles to be unsporting and banned their import. This was done years prior to the 1989 import ban.

Ruger Mini-14 in Muzzelite Stock

A Ruger Mini-14 in a Muzzelite Stock is used throughout the series. This particular rifle was used previously in the 1995 film Tank Girl and then in 1998's Phantoms.

In "Serenity" (S1E01), when Zoë escapes the crashing Alliance Plane that Mal shot down, her H&K G36K turns into a rubber Ruger Mini-14 in a Muzzelite stock. This version has a forward pistol grip added to the stock, indicating that this is the same rifle first seen in 1995's Tank Girl.
What is likely the same prop is seen on Persephone later in the same episode.

Faux Colt XM177E2

In "Serenity" (S1E01), a Faux Colt XM177E2 was seen in the hands of a guard. This rifle has A2 sights, a delta ring retaining the hand guards, A2 reinforcements on the lower, a 5.5" flash suppressor, and a round forward assist so it's not the 1960's vintage XM carbine in the title but closer to a cobbled together '90s carbine like this one.

Jayne Cobb (Adam Baldwin) knocks out the sniper and uses the rifle against Patience's men (starting with Two-Fry's hat). They were also seen use by the team that kidnapped Mal and Wash in "War Stories" (S1E10), where they are referred to as "54R" sniper rifles.

Heckler & Koch HK770

Jayne can be seen with a heavily modified Heckler & Koch HK770 in "Heart of Gold" (S1E13).

This is the same rifle used in the final season of Burn Notice in the episode "Down Range" (S7E03).

Rifles / Carbines

Winchester Model 1892 "Mare's Leg"

The Winchester Model 1892 Mare's Leg, a carbine cut down to pistol length, is the main firearm used by Zoë (Gina Torres) in the series. The rifle, fitted with a large lever loop, is similar to the one popularized by Steve McQueen in the western TV series Wanted: Dead or Alive. This particular rifle was previously used in the series The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr..

"Callahan Fullbore Autolock 'Vera'"

A Modified Izhmash Saiga-12 shotgun is the unique shotgun used by Jayne (Adam Baldwin) in "Our Mrs. Reynolds" (S1E06). The weapon was originally built by gunsmiths Larry Zanoff and the late Jim Boland for the film Showtime. It is capable of folding into compact form and still be fireable. Technically it's a shotgun, but in the show, it is a rifle that fires big bullets. In "Our Mrs. Reynolds" (S1E06), "Vera" requires oxygen to fire, which could be explained if it used an ignition system like the Daisy VL caseless .22 rifle (1968-1969).
