The following firearms were seen in the anime television series Neon Genesis Evangelion and the finale movie The End of Evangelion:

Contents


Handguns

CZ-75B

Gendo Ikari pulls a CZ-75B on Ritsuko during their final confrontation. There is no indication that Gendo normally carries a gun with himself, and he may have just been carrying it because Nerv HQ was being invaded by the JSSDF.

CZ 75B - 9x19mm
"Ritsuko Akagi, the truth is..."

Glock 17

The Glock 17 pistol is seen as the primary firearm carried by NERV personnel.

Glock 17 (Generation 1) - 9x19mm.
"Safety off."; Hyuga checks his Glock 17.
Hyuga keeps his Glock 17 in his desk. Note that there is only one spare magazine. It seems that someone thinks stocking up on ammunition is a waste of funds.
Shigeru Aoba: Release the safety.
Maya Ibuki: I can't! I just can't shoot this thing, Aoba!
Shigeru Aoba: Of course you can! You've had basic training!
Maya Ibuki: But I shot at targets, not at other human beings!
Shigeru Aoba: Idiot! You kill or you die!

You can see a good shot of Hyuga gripping his Glock 17.

Heckler & Koch USP

Major Misato Katsuragi's gun is the HK USP. Unlike most Nerv personnel, she does not use the standard issue Glock 17, possibly because she is head of the Tactical division. She brandishes it several times during the series. Note that Misato's USP has a rubber grip on the handle. She fires 10 rounds in succession when fighting the JSSDF soldiers. All three of the main H&K USP variants carry more than 10 rounds per magazine, so there is no on-screen evidence establishing which kind she uses (According to Evangelion Chronicle #13, her USP is a .45 ACP variant).

Inglis Hi-Power

The Inglis Hi-Power is the standard-issue sidearm used by Japanese Strategic Self-Defense Force commandos. It can be identified as such by its distinctive rear sight.

Revolvers

R-92 Revolver

During End of Evangelion, Ritsuko uses a R-92 revolver. Ritsuko conceals her R-92 in her lab coat during her confrontation with Gendo, though there is no indication that she normally carries the gun with her.

R-92 revolver - 9x18mm Makarov.

Sub-Machine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP5A3

Only briefly seen in episode 23, the Nerv HazMat team seems to be armed with H&K MP5s, probably the MP5A3 variant.

Steyr MPi 69

Nerv's security guards use the Steyr MPi 69 as their standard-issue weapon. While normally only Nerv security guards are armed with Steyr MPi 69s and normal technicians and computer operators are only armed with Glock 17's, command center computer operator Lt. Aoba either manages to get his hands on one or kept one stored in his desk for just such an eventuality.

Steyr MPi81 Submachine Gun - 9mm. This varies from the MPi69 in that the cocking handle is more conventional, and not a combination 'cocking handle/sling mount'.

Hybrid MPi 69

According to Evangelion Chronicle #22, Aoba's own MPi 69 is a hybrid submachine gun consisting of parts from the MPi and the Russian AEK-919.

AEK-919K “Kashtan” - 9x18 Makarov.

Maya Ibuki: But I shot at targets, not at other human beings!
Shigeru Aoba: Idiot! You kill or you die!

Assault Rifle

Heckler & Koch G11

The advanced HK G11 is the standard weapon of the elite JSSDF commandos who invade Nerv HQ in End of Evangelion. A major feature of the HK G11 is that it fires caseless ammunition. Notice that when JSSDF soldiers fire their HK G11s in the movie, they never expel spent shell casings.

M269 Modules mounted on UN Army-controlled MLRS are used to fire M26 rockets at Sachiel when it begins to approach Tokyo-3 in the first episode. JSSDF-maned MLRS use them in End of Evangelion when they take on Asuka's Unit 02.
