Help on Shotgun ID

About to wrap Season 8's page for The X-Files, but I need a bit of help IDing this particular pump shotgun. It smacks of something familiar but doesn't seem to match anything I've looked at. These are the two best shots I could get, so bear with me -


Again, looks familiar, but I can't put a definitive finger on it. Any thoughts? StanTheMan (talk) 18:57, 12 January 2015 (EST)

Not really much to go on, but my gut feeling would probably just be a Mossberg 500. To back that up, there was a similar looking wood furnitured Mossberg 500AT in Season 7. --commando552 (talk) 19:13, 12 January 2015 (EST)
That's what I had thought initially but something seemed/seems off, the pump grips especially seem rather short and/or the mag tubes and barrels seem a bit long. Slightly odd proportions to me - More like these are riot shotguns with extended mag tubes but with slightly longer barrels (ones that go past the mag tube extension - sorta like the 870 in Pulp Fiction). But then again these are shots done in movement and at not the best angles - Basically just aren't great pictures. Looking at the episode again, though, another Mossberg seems the most solid guess at this point though. Thanks much. StanTheMan (talk) 20:14, 12 January 2015 (EST)

Shotgun ID Redux

Got another one I'm a bit iffy about, this one from the ninth season -

"John Doe" (S9E07).

Help on Pistol ID

Please help to identify this pistol:

Tikhaya zastava-Pistol-2.jpg
Tikhaya zastava-Pistol-4.jpg

It appears to be a stainless steel compact pistol that resembles Smith & Wesson models but doesn't exactly match any of them. As the pistol is seen in Russian 2011 movie, it can be some blank firing replica (like Umarex) rather than an original S&W pistol. Thanks in advance! Greg-Z (talk) 08:18, 8 February 2015 (EST)

Maybe a Smith & Wesson 3913 LS "Ladysmith"? Pyramid Silent (talk) 16:21, 8 February 2015 (EST)
It doesn't seem to have the 'LadySmith' markings, if so, not a 3913LS. It could be the 'Non-Logo' version, the 3913 NL, though. That's doubtful too, however - The forend and slide seem too short, the eject port doesn't seem to be low enough and while it's tough to tell, the slide serrations seem straight and not slanted like those on the S&W autos. The gun also doesn't appear to have the round 'plug' at the right rear of the slide (where the safety would be on a standard 3913). The grip doesn't seem to match up either. Strangely enough, it does seem to have the two-tone alloy frame and stainless slide like you would see on 3913s (and other Smith autos). I think Greg might have had it right initially - That this is not a genuine S&W auto but rather a replica of one. StanTheMan (talk) 17:06, 8 February 2015 (EST)
Zoraki 914? --Funkychinaman (talk) 17:30, 8 February 2015 (EST)
^ That I think is actually the best guess at this point. StanTheMan (talk) 18:15, 8 February 2015 (EST)
Or maybe an EKOL "Tuna"? --Funkychinaman (talk) 22:47, 8 February 2015 (EST)
I guess EKOL Tuna is a better guess as the screen pistol has a rounded trigger guard, like Tuna and unlike Zoraki. Many thanks for help! Greg-Z (talk) 02:21, 9 February 2015 (EST)

Vidgame DLCs

When a weapon is added to a videogame via a dlc release when listing those appearances on the weapon page, should the year be the original year the videogame was published, or the year the dlc was released? S3anyBoy (talk) 10:50, 13 March 2015 (EDT)

Year the DLC was released. Best would be to also note it's added in the (whatever) pack. Evil Tim (talk) 10:57, 13 March 2015 (EDT)
The link itself is to the page for the game. I would think whenever the game is released, with as you said, a notation for the DLC pack. --Funkychinaman (talk) 11:00, 13 March 2015 (EDT)

Alright thanks. Also, if anyone is interested I made an IMFDB steam group for users to arrange to play together, discuss games, etc. Feel free to join and I'll make any IMFDB admins officers or mods if they want. S3anyBoy (talk) 12:53, 13 March 2015 (EDT)

Need help

Need some help to check this weapon out. Ominae (talk) 00:35, 3 May 2015 (EDT)

Making temp page (a la sandbox)

Need to ask if I can do a sandbox-type page so that I can build it up slowly before I put it up as a page here on the site. Ominae (talk) 05:33, 28 May 2015 (EDT)

Of course you can. Just create a new page User:Ominae/Sandbox. Greg-Z (talk) 05:58, 28 May 2015 (EDT)
Thanks. Do I PM someone to have it deleted when it's done? Ominae (talk) 07:47, 28 May 2015 (EDT)
You can put the [[Nuke]] tag on the page, and it would be deleted. Or you can keep it empty, maybe one day you'll need it again. I keep my Sandbox page and use it from time to time. Greg-Z (talk) 07:53, 28 May 2015 (EDT)

Need help to examine this pistol

Need assistance to examine if this is a Smith & Wesson-type pistol on the box of an airgun as shown here. Thanks Ominae (talk) 10:36, 29 May 2015 (EDT)
