Contents


Pistols

MP-443 Grach

GRU Operative Constantine Asimov points what appears to be an MP-443 "Grach" on Iizuka Yoshiaki in the battlefield outside Mt. Aso in "The Magical Girl Comes Back". This would make sense as the MP-443 is the standard service pistol of the Russian military and law enforcement.

Derringer

FN Five-seveN

Magical Girl Just Cause Mia's magical artifact is a two shot derringer that can transform into various firearms. She is seen using what appears to be an FN Five-seveN before it changes to her derringer in order to transform as her main sidearm. Her fellow CIA SAD agents Aaron and Julia also use it on occasions.
