Terra Nova (TV Series)
Terra Nova is a science fiction television series that premiered in 2011 on the FOX network. Co-executive produced by Steven Spielberg, the series follows a family who in the year 2149 are part of a program to escape a overdeveloped and overcrowded Earth by making a journey back to prehistoric times and restarting the human race. While many of the weapons seen in the series are fabrications, a few are authentic firearms housed in futuristic shells.
The following weapons appear in the television series Terra Nova:
In Episode 1 Jim Shannon (Jason O'Mara) can be seen with a customised Taurus PT92AF fitted with a muzzle device, rail system and some form of sight before travelling through the time rift. It can be identified as an early model by the markings on the slide and the fact that the safety catch lacks the ability to rotate down and decock the weapon.
Some form of Colt Carbine is used as the basis for one of the rifles used by the Terra Nova settlers, with the overall appearance of a Model 733. All that can be seen of the original weapon is the Birdcage type flash-hider, 30 round magazine and A1 type rear sight. In behind the scenes videos actors can be seen training on Colt carbines that have slab sided lower receivers and lack forward assists and case deflectors, so it is possible that these weapons are chopped down Sporter 1 Carbines.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
A dressed up Heckler & Koch MP5A3 can be seen being used by a "Sixer" in "The Runaway".
