From left to right: Karila Hatsuse, Honoka Mutsu, Yachiyo Hinata, Sonora Kashima, Yura Yamato, and Rento Kirishima. (July 4, 2013 - September 26, 2013)
Stella Women’s Academy, High School Division Class C³ is a story of Yura Yamato in the prestigious Stella Women's Academy. Yura has a hard time making friends with the other girls around until she bumps into Rento Kirishima, who tries to recruit Yura into the school's airsoft club, C³ (derived from command, control, and communications). The club currently consists of Rento, Karila Hatsuse, Honoka Mutsu, Yachiyo Hinata, and Sonora Kashima (President and Yura's roommate). The story revolves around Yura's interactions with the C³ Club's members and activities.
Warning: Some descriptions and images are potential spoilers for the series, read at your own risk.
Note: As this anime is about the sport of airsoft, all of the guns in the show are airsoft replicas, with the exception of a Desert Eagle wielded by Sonora in the first episode.
The following weapons were used in the anime series Stella Women's Academy, High School Division Class C³:
A Glock 17 was given to Yura Yamato by Sonora Kashima in Episode 2, and she uses it as her sidearm for the rest of the show.
Sonora pulls the Glock 17 out of a broken cello. The only plausible explanation for the loaded Glock being there is that she planted it specifically for this match. (Ep.2)

IMI Desert Eagle Mark XIX
Sonora Kashima, president of the C³ Club, uses two chromed Desert Eagle Mark XIXs as her weapons of choice, and uses a real one while at a shooting competition in the US. She carries them in an unidentified leather horizontal shoulder holster. Rin Haruna, leader of the team from Meisei Girls' Academy, uses two black Desert Eagles as her sidearms. Both Sonora and Rin have had their respective pairs of Desert Eagles since they were very young. Miyagi Mochizuki of Team KGB uses a chrome Desert Eagle with 10-inch barrel and custom rear sight, safety, and grips. This Desert Eagle, called the "Leon Custom" by Tokyo Marui, is a replica of a pistol from the Resident Evil series.

Yachiyo Hinata with her SIG-Sauer P228. The lighting in this shot makes it look nickel-plated. (Ep.1)
Yachiyo's P228 turns into a Glock 17 in this one shot in a continuity error. This shot appears to have been added to the scene late, which likely contributed to the error. (Ep.1)

Only to discover she's been outplayed. (Ep.1)

Springfield Armory XDᴹ-40 4.5
The team from Meisei Girls' Academy uses the XDᴹ-40 4.5 as their sidearm, and it is issued out to all members of the team. Although the team is always referred to my their school name, they actually do have a team name: "Dangan Uchuu", which translates to "Hail Of Bullets". It's never spoken, but is seen on the wall behind Rin's desk at their firing range.
Springfield Armory XDᴹ 4.5 - .40 S&W
Hail Of Bullets with their XDᴹ-40s out on the firing range. The long-haired member's is out of frame and the glasses-wearing member's is cycling; these two characters are not named. (Ep.9)
In this shot in the airing show, the pistols were all Desert Eagles; the animator most likely used Rin's Desert Eagle as a reference by mistake, but it was fixed in the blu-ray release. The three team members here are Kyouko, Kazuha, and Chisato, the latter being the team's second-in-command. (Ep.9)

Yura holds onto a Beretta M9 while participating in her first airsoft battle. This Tokyo Marui pistol has M9 trademarks, rather the 92FS's trademarks.
Yura holding the M9. (Ep.1)
Akane Seto uses two red Glock 26s. They are part of Tokyo Marui's "Gindan" series, which are available in various bright colours along with the standard black and two-tone silver finishes. In real life however, these pistols would be a poor choice to bring to a game as primary weapons due to their extremely low velocity and range.
TM Gindan Series G26 (Red) - 6mm BB
Moe Seto and Akane Seto fire their PPK/S and Glock 26, respectively. While the weapons are hard to distinguish here, features present later in the episode and the shooting sound show that they are TM Gindan series pistols. (Ep.5)

Beretta 92FS Brigadier "Samurai Edge"
The customized Beretta 92FS Brigadier from the Resident Evil series appears to be used by Kiku Nagato, who is cosplaying Jill Valentine (specifically her Resident Evil 3: Nemesis outfit) in the Field Queen Contest. Tokyo Marui makes a whole line of customized guns from the Resident Evil series, which is known as Biohazard in Japan.
TM Beretta 92FS Brigadier "Samurai Edge" - 6mm BB
Kiku Nagato surrenders to Rin Haruna, holding up her exceptionally generic-looking pistol. However, given her outfit it can be assumed this is a Samurai Edge pistol; the proportions are also consistent with a 92FS, along with the slightly extended barrel. (Ep.13)

Maiotome Ise aims her C96 at Honoka, who just took her out. (Ep.13)

In Yura's imagination in Episode 6, she and Sonora are wielding Colt M1873s, more commonly known as Single Action Armys, in a wild west shootout. Given that it's in Yura's imagination, the guns can be assumed to be authentic Colt M1873s and not one of the more modern clones.

M3A1 Grease Gun
Hail Of Bullets' team leader, Rin Haruna, uses an M3A1 as her main weapon. By process of elimination of the features found on the three airsoft M3 replicas (ICS, ARES, and S&T) Rin's is the S&T model. The ICS is a replica of the original M3, the ARES is an M3A1 but bizarrely also has the crank charging handle, and the S&T is a proper M3A1, but with a slightly-longer-than-correct pistol grip to fit its battery. Rin's lacks the crank and has the slightly longer pistol grip, making it the S&T.

Heckler & Koch MP5K-PDW
Members of the Hail Of Bullets airsoft team under Rin's command are all equipped with identical Heckler & Koch MP5K-PDWs, fitted with castle-style rear sights (more common to the standard MP5K), MP5 claw mount red dot scopes, Gemtech Raptor-II suppressors, and 15-round magazines. In one shot the optic is shown to have both night vision and zoom, though in reality it's a simple co-witness red dot sight. The weapon is standard issue, as new recruits get them and are required to return them when they leave the club.
MP5KA4 - 9x19mm. The team's PDWs feature the castle-style rear sight and short magazine seen here.

Heckler & Koch MP7A1 - 4.6x30mm
A competitor aiming his MP7A1. Note how it is much larger in scale than the real version, so much so that the competitor can shoulder it despite the stock being collapsed all the way. (Ep.3)
This whole team is armed with MP7A1s fitted with EOTech 552 holosights. Note the reference
, though an M4A1/M203 combo would have been a better choice for everyone's favourite boonie hat-wearing, cigar-smoking, British badass. (Ep.8)
The female competitor on the left has an MP7A1 with a suppressor attached. Her pistol is not detailed enough to be IDed. (Ep.8)

A tournament competitor wields a Walther MPL with the stock removed in Episode 3.
Karila gets the attention of the MPL-wielding player. (Ep.3)

Heckler & Koch G36KA2
Honoka Mutsu uses a Heckler & Koch G36KA2 as her main weapon. The A2 upgrades to the G36 are the replacement of the built-in red dot sight with a picatinny rail, a slightly different handguard made of aluminum that features attachment points for rails, and the shorter G36C stock. The Marui replica uses a standard stock instead of the C-length one, however most real G36A2s seem to still use the standard stock as well. Marui's G36KA2 also features SEF fire selector markings, which makes sense as a German Army rifle. Also worth noting is that another G36KA2 airsoft replica exists (made by VFC) which has identical features to the Marui, and it is officially licensed by Heckler & Koch, making this setup rather official.

Yachiyo fires her Type 89-F at a confused Rento as the Stellas all fight each other. (Ep.12)
A good shot of Yachiyo and her Type 89-F. It looks really big for her size, but she could handle the length of the AWS so why not? (Ep.12)
A very confused Yachiyo holds her Type 89-F. (Ep.12)
Rento and Yachiyo ready their rifles. (Ep.12)
Yachiyo joins in the group cheer with her Type 89-F (Ep.12)
Yura uses an M4A1 as her first main weapon; she was first found playing with it while daydreaming in her room in Episode 1 and used it as her primary in Episode 2 and 3. Various competitors in the tournament and the 24 hour tournament are also seen using M4A1s.
Sonora teaching Yura how to use the M4A1. It's badly proportioned here, but looks great in Episode 3. (Ep.2)
Close up of the selector switch on Yura's M4A1. (Ep.2)
Yura holding her M4A1 at the tournament. (Ep.3)
Yura runs with her M4A1 at the tournament. (Ep.3)
Sonora takes on a whole team in the intro sequence; the players in the foreground have M4A1s, while those in the background appear to have AKs. (OP)
An M4 with a customized front end, ACOG, and pink paint is seen at the tournament. (Ep.3)
A competitor with her two-tone pink M4A1. This M4A1, called the Femme Fatale, is made by manufacturer G&G, though it comes with a SOPMOD stock rather than an LE one. (Ep.3)
A competitor with his M4A1, customized with a tan handguard, stock, and pistol grip. (Ep.3)
This M4-ish rifle seen in a 24 hour tournament advertisement has a rather stretched handguard, but has the barrel indent and collapsible stock of an M4A1, so it's likely just an art error, seeing as it's also completely lacking a magwell. (Ep.7)
A competitor with an M4A1 (or similar rifle) in the 24 hour tournament. (Ep.8)
A member of the USMC team gets hit with his M4A1, which is fitted with a full stock, rail system, Aimpoint sight, and vertical grip. The full stock is not an uncommon modification in airsoft, as this allows the rifle to fit a much larger battery. (Ep.8)
Suiting his personality, Daishichi Hamakaze of Team KGB uses a gold AKS-47 as his main weapon. These were limited production rifles made by airsoft manufacturer SRC.
Daishichi on the left with his gold AKS-47. (Ep.8)
Daishichi runs for cover, showing he also has a holstered pistol. (Ep.8)
Daishichi firing at Team Stella with his AKS-47. The selector switch is on semi throughout the whole scene, but he's firing full auto. (Ep.8)
TM AK-47 β-Spetsnaz
Karila's twin brother Aila Hatsuse of Team KGB, uses a Tokyo Marui AK-47 β-Spetsnaz (pronounced "Beta-Spetsnaz") as his main weapon.
Tokyo Marui AK-47 β-Spetsnaz - 6mm BB

Although chibified, Aila uses a sufficiently detailed AK-47β to win the first round. (Ep.13)
Aila hipfires his AK-47β at Rento. (Ep.13)
Aila takes on his sister while armed with his AK-47β in the Field Queen Contest. (Ep.13)
Custom AKs very close to AKMSUs appear several times, always in the exact same configuration; it's not unreasonable to assume they were modeled from a custom airsoft AK owned by someone involved in making the show. They differ from the original AKMSU by having a standard AK top cover/rear sight, not having the unique handguard, and lacking a stock (though they're still built from AKS lower receivers, due to the stock attachment point). Put another way, they're AKS-47s with AKS-74U gas systems and no stocks. Seira Yaguchi uses one with polymer furniture in the Field Queen Contest, a competitor on the first team faced in Episode 3 uses one, and nearly the entire team that Rin's Hail Of Bullets faces repeatedly in Episode 10 are armed with them.
Seira Yaguchi uses her custom AK in the Field Queen Contest. (Ep.13)
A competitor runs from Rento's impressive grenade throw with his AKMSU. Given this isn't even 10 seconds into the match it's acceptable that his rifle is still on safe. (Ep.3)
The same competitor gets hit by Sonora's Desert Eagle while holding his AKMSU. (Ep.3)
Two players with their AKMSUs. (Ep.10)
The same team gears up for another match with their AKMSUs. (Ep.10)
A good closeup showing the attachment point for the stock, and the rifle set to full auto. (Ep.8)

The HK416 fitted with an EOTech holosight on the back of the poster, above the AUG. (Ep.13)
An M16A1 can be seen on a gun rack in the club room, and competitor can be seen with a M16A1 in the 24H tournament.
The competitor resting on the right has a M16A1 fitted with a three-prong flash hider. It's not an original M16 as it has a forward assist. (Ep.8)
The M16A1 can be seen in the background gun rack second from the top. (Ep.1)
A Stella Regiment member has an M16 aimed at the Stella club. The rifle clearly lacks a forward assist, and there is only one original M16 airsoft replica, a gas-powered rifle made by G&P; all other older-style M16 replicas are of the M16A1. Just like on real ones, the birdcage flash hider is an aftermarket part. Given how common it is for original M16s (or visually similar rifles) to be fitted with birdcage flash hiders, especially for film and TV, and that there is no airsoft replica of the M82A3 seen in the very next shot, it's highly likely that the animators used images of real rifles as reference for both of these guns, rather than airsoft versions.
Colt M16 with a birdcage flash hider - 5.56x45mm
A Stella student aiming an M16 with a birdcage flash hider. (Ep.12)
A FAMAS F1 can be seen in on a gun rack in the club room.
The FAMAS F1 can be seen on the gun rack on the very top. (Ep.1)
Competitors in Honoka's briefing on the rules of the 24 hour tournament are armed with L85s.
Enfield L85A2 - 5.56x45mm
Although not very detailed, L85's have a pretty distinctive design. (Ep.8)
A FN SCAR-L is seen on the back of a magazine Sonora is reading.
The magazine with a SCAR-L on the back cover. (Ep.7)
TM AUG A3 High Cycle
A Tokyo Marui AUG A3 High Cycle can be seen on the cover of the Field Queen Contest poster. The High Cycle is an AUG A3 XS submachine gun, but chambered 5.56x45mm and uses standard AUG magazines. The AUG A3 HC is the prize for the winner of the contest, along with free BBs for a year, while the other guns on the back of the poster are presumably prizes for second place and below. Being part of Tokyo Marui's "High Cycle" series, this rifle has a very impressive rate of fire of 1500 rounds per minute!
Tokyo Marui AUG A3 High Cycle - 6mm BB

Sonora and Yachiyo wielding M1 Garands. (Ep.5)
Honoka holding her M1 Garand, while Rento appears to have misplaced hers. (Ep.5)
While no firearms are in this image, it's certainly worth being noted in this section. Also slightly ironic, being a Japanese show. (Ep.5)
An M14 with a dark OD stock can be seen in Sonora's closet in Episode 1. A bunch of M14 with black stocks can also be seen coming out of a locker in Episode 12.
The M14 is on the far left. (Ep.1)
The black M14s in a locker. (Ep.12)

The SCAR-H can be seen in the background gun rack on the very bottom. (Ep.1)
Heckler & Koch G3A4
A H&K G3A4 can be seen in Sonora's closet in Episode 1, and a competitor in the 24 hour tournament appears to use a G3A4. It is an A4, as TM's G3A3 has the green slimline handguard, while the G3/SG1 has a bipod.
Heckler & Koch G3A4 - 7.62x51mm
The G3A4 is on the far right. The M24, M4A1, and AUG A1 are all seen outside the closet later in the show. (Ep.1)
The player in the middle just took a hit to his G3A4, which means (depending on the rules used here) that he's either out, or the gun is out and he must use his sidearm. (Ep.8)
Heckler & Koch G3A3
A H&K G3A3 can be seen hanging on a gun wall in in club room, as well as on a banner for the first tournament, and a poster in an airsoft shop.

Rambo fires his M60 in the movie. (Ep.1)
The Rambo movie cover with a M60 on it; this cover is parody of First Blood
. The title is a pun; 乱暴 (spelled in English as Ranbō) means "violent" or "rough" in Japanese. (Ep.1)
Birmingham Small Arms Besa
A BSA Besa machine gun is mounted coaxially on the Matilda II tank in one of Yura's visions.
Birmingham Small Arms Besa - 7.92×57mm Mauser
The Besa can be seen to the right of the Matilda II's main cannon, from its perspective. (Ep.4)

Yura holding the M4A1 she ends up using as her primary, with the M24 on her back, and two M4 magazines strapped to her head. (Ep.1)
Yura tries to explain why she's become a mall ninja, a M24 strapped on her back surely isn't helping. (Ep.1)
Hibiki Tsubaki and another competitor in the 24 hour tournament use Marui VSR-10s, which are essentially Remington M700 copies. It is identified by the far-forward placement of the magazine, and the little grooves on each side of the magazine well, which let fingers pull the mag out, as standard mags fit flush.
Tokyo Marui VSR-10 - 6mm BB
Hibiki uses a TM VSR-10 with extended mags as his weapon of choice. (Ep.8)
The competitor second from left has a VSR-10; there isn't much identifiable detail other than the stock color. (Ep.8)
A member of the Stella Regiment is armed with a Barrett M82A3. Distinguishable from other Barrett M82 variants by its raised accessory rail on top in combination with the rail stopping short of the front with a folding front sight, and lack of a rear sight. There is no airsoft replica of the M82A3; the only M82 series replicas are of the original M82A1 and the M107.
A Stella Regiment member with a M82A3 aimed at the Stella club; the scope appears to be the same as the one on the real rifle in the photo above. She seems to have removed the bipod in favor of using a comrade as a bipod, which if it was real would be a BAD
Heckler & Koch PSG-1
A Heckler & Koch PSG-1 can be seen on a gun rack in the club room. Notable is that this was Yachiyo's sniper rifle in the Middle School manga set three years earlier. A PSG-1 can also be seen at a gun booth at the 24H Tournament. A PSG-1 fitted with its proprietary bipod can be seen on the Field Queen Contest poster as well.
Heckler & Koch PSG-1 - 7.62x51mm
The PSG-1 can be seen in the background gun rack second from the bottom. (Ep.1)
A PSG-1 on a rack. This rack is a duplicate of the one in the club room, though mirrored (which ironically makes it correct). The rack on the left side of the screen is the one in question, just in case there was any confusion. (Ep.7)
The PSG-1 can be seen on the poster's left side, above the HK416. (Ep.13)
The PSG-1 on poster's back side, below the AUG. (Ep.13)

A long rifle's box can be seen behind the boonie hat and boots. It has a very distinctive gap between the barrel and stock near the front. (Ep.1)
A sniper rifle of some sort is seen in the middle, to the left of what appears to be an M9. What's especially odd here is what's clearly a Tokyo Marui booth has been changed to "Tokyo Kakui", despite the fact that TM actually sponsored the show. (Ep.7)
In Episode 12, some members of the Stella Regiment are armed with RPG-7s when preparing to engage the C³ Club.
A pair of the Stellas' RPG-7s can be seen in this window. (Ep.12)

The QF 2-pounder is the Matilda II's main cannon. (Ep.4)
Stella Women's Academy High School Regiment
Some members of the Stella Regiment are armed with various rifles, sniper rifles, and/or shotguns. All are more detailed than simple stick guns, but none enough for a solid ID.
Most students here are armed with a rifle of some sort. (Ep.12)
And another pair. Some reasonable guesses could be made in these pictures. (Ep.12)
