Some question of rare gun in movie

Hello Greg-Z! I'm sorry, I have some question: I know, that pages about media, that contain only tanegashima matchlock are ineligible. But, the movie Azumi contain not only standart arquebuse, but also contain very rare, but realy historical exist Japanese matchlock revolver, so, I created the stub on discussion page: Talk:Azumi‎. May you visit it for it discussion about it's eligibility, please. Pyramid Silent (talk) 06:42, 17 January 2017 (EST)

Azumi page on imdb.

It's absolutely revolving barrels gun (due the obvious reason, I can't upload screenshots with revolving moving, but, I uploaded two screenshots with different barrels position). And, this gun is the equipped with a pistolgrip and it's matchlock, due the typical hammer with a match (I don't know, is the word "hammer" correct for matchlock guns). Pyramid Silent (talk) 08:37, 17 January 2017 (EST)
Thanks! The gun on this photo seems much more similar. How do you think, is the term"revolver" correct, and may this page be eligible? Pyramid Silent (talk) 12:24, 17 January 2017 (EST)
Many thanks! I changed the name to matchlock pepperbox. Pyramid Silent (talk) 13:04, 17 January 2017 (EST)

Hello, Greg-Z! I'm sorry, I have some request: may you help me to ID the pistol in the hands of Moldovan policeman in Fat. It's seem like variant of PM, but, it's not the standart Soviet or Russian model. Probably, it's some Moldovan produced variant. Pyramid Silent (talk) 07:30, 30 January 2017 (EST)

pistol in Midsomer Murders

Hello, Greg-Z! I'm sorry, I have some moment: at least one of the pistols in the gun shop in Midsomer Murders are clearly Wheellock and not Flintlock. Pyramid Silent (talk) 12:56, 2 March 2017 (EST)

Some question about animation

Hello, Greg-Z! I'm sorry, I have have some question: as far, as I know, cartoonish animation are against the rules. However, some western animations (like Archer, The Adventures of Tintin, The Iron Giant, etc.) are allowed, due, it's depicted not cartoonish, but realistic guns. So, I have question to administration: is this animation (Russian feature movie "Fortress. With Shield and Sword (Krepost. Shitom i mechom)" rather realistic for exist or it's to cartoonish and ineligible. The examples of screenshots I uploads here. So, may I upload screenshots on discussion page to view it for Administrators. Pyramid Silent (talk) 05:06, 29 April 2017 (EDT)

ok, I removed the question. Pyramid Silent (talk) 06:50, 29 April 2017 (EDT)

Also, if it's not hard for you, may you upload image for Vladimir Naumov (I created actor page and director category, due he holds two different handguns in movie and directed three medias - two movies and one TV-series). Thanks! Pyramid Silent (talk) 10:27, 8 May 2017 (EDT)

Picasso Trigger

Hi Greg, it is with great pleasure that I can inform you I just finished the Picasso Trigger page. I had some delay (almost a year...) but now finally the Andy Sidaris "saga" is completed. It's nothing new, most guns are the same, but as usual fun to watch. The unidentified gun pops up again, will make a discussion topic about that on the Main Page. Take care, PeeWee055 (talk) 10:31, 26 May 2017 (EDT)

Glad you liked the page. I don't think the P08 Luger is really a target version, would be too expensive for Andy Sidaris. My best guess is that they used a Luger, the barrel broke during the movie shooting and they made a new barrel themselves but it turned out too big. Anything can be expected with an Andi Sidaris movie! PeeWee055 (talk) 04:48, 27 May 2017 (EDT)

Difference between M1911 and M1911A1

Pyramid Silent (talk) 07:51, 10 August 2017 (EDT)

Andy Sidaris "mystery" pistol finally identified!

Hi Greg, you may remember that one 'mystery' pistol kept showing up in Andy Sidaris movies. Thanks to SeptemberJack it has now been identified as the Edison Giocattoli Sharkmatic, a 1970s Italian cap gun, sold as a toy at the time.


I will revise the movie/actor pages in due course, and SeptemberJack is working on a Photoshop version of below image. By the way, thanks for updating actor pages for Picasso Trigger last week, it was on my ‘to-do’ list but I could not find the time yet. Will complete pages related to this movie in the coming weeks. Take care, PeeWee055 (talk) 14:55, 12 August 2017 (EDT)

I just noticed you were informed separately of this gun a few days ago. I will go ahead anyway and if I see you have already sone some work, I will thank you :-) Take care, PeeWee055 (talk) 15:00, 12 August 2017 (EDT)
Hey Greg, could you please check the discussion page for 'Blank Fire Only Guns'? FunkyChinaman has removed the Edison Giocattoli Sharkmatic (Andy Sidaris mystery gun!) but I am asking him to put it back. Thanks for getting involved, PeeWee055 (talk) 04:47, 15 August 2017 (EDT)

Help in Wheels of Fire

Hello, Greg-Z! Excuse me, I have some request. I upload a few more screenshot for PPS-style submachine gun. How do you think, is it PPS or not. Also, this gun fired onscreen, so it's real gun and it's seems not mock up. Pyramid Silent (talk) 09:47, 16 August 2017 (EDT)

Unidentified handguns in Dr. Mabuse, the gambler

Hi,Greg-Z!Look, I recently started working on this page, and I couldn't identify 2 revolvers which aren't seen so well(the movie is an old B&W). I suggested what could they be, but can you ,please, help me?--VLAD M (talk) 11:19, 6 September 2017 (EDT)

Musket in Chato's Land

Hello, Greg-Z! Excuse me, I have some guess about musket in Chato's Land. I think, that's actualy not a musket, but a Remington 1863 Zouave.

Remington 1863 Zouave Rifle - .58 Minie ball
Note the similar metal plate on the buttstock.
Note the two barrel bands, the ring to the sling on the second barrel band, the similar muzzle shape and leght of the ramrod.
Note the similar position of the rear sight and all other reeses, depicted above.
The similar metal plate on the buttstock.
The similar metal plate on the buttstock again.

The only differ is the little short gun leight, but it's may be just visual illusion or carbine version of the gun. Pyramid Silent (talk) 08:24, 7 September 2017 (EDT)

This version are more shorter? Pyramid Silent (talk) 09:49, 7 September 2017 (EDT)

Custom Nagant

Hello, Greg-Z! I create a photoshopped image of the custom Nagant M1895, that appeared in the Sheriff's Star (Zvezda sherifa), New Adventures of a Yankee in King Arthur's Court. Fantasy Over Mark Twain's Theme (Novye priklyucheniya yanki pri dvore korolya Artura), Killer's Wedge (Sposob ubiystva) and Four Sheets of Plywood (Chotyry lysty fanery). What do you think about that? Pyramid Silent (talk) 14:05, 26 September 2017 (EDT)

Photoshopped image of this movie prop (colage of different screenshots from this movies).
No, I had used Photoshop, but, the sourced screenshots from Chotyry lysty fanery and Novye priklyucheniya yanki are slightly blured and fuzzy. The only good quality is the grip from Sposob ubiystva. Pyramid Silent (talk) 14:15, 26 September 2017 (EDT)
Thanks! I also add gun image for the musket in Chato's Land. Pyramid Silent (talk) 14:26, 26 September 2017 (EDT)

Help to check the ID of the pistol

Hello, Greg-Z! Excuse me, I have some request: may yopu check the ID of the pistol in the old Soviet movie. At first, I thought, that's Broqua & Scholberg Marked .44 Russian Single Shot Pistol, but, maybe it's wrong and it's Auguste Francotte Pistolet de Tir de Salon pistol, which appers in at lest two soviet movies. How do you think, is the my ID correct? Pyramid Silent (talk) 14:54, 6 October 2017 (EDT)

1880s Belgian manufactured Auguste Francotte Pistolet de Tir de Salon pistol - 9mm Flobert rimfire. The screen gun is very similar to this sample.

Oh, sorry, I found old disscussion about it. Also, how do you think, is it usefull, to create a gun page for Auguste Francotte Pistolet de Tir de Salon pistol, which appeared at lest in two movies and one actors is ID? Pyramid Silent (talk) 15:49, 6 October 2017 (EDT)

RE: Rifle category

I wouldn't be so sure about that regarding the Volkssturmgewehr, since its round isn't as heavy-hitting as that of battle rifles; I think it would just qualify as a service rifle. As for the other rifles that you mentioned, they fire full-sized rounds, so maybe you're right. Since you know about these more than I do, I'll leave the changes up to you. --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 10:06, 23 October 2017 (EDT)

Request to same help with ID

Hello, Greg-Z! Exquse me, I have some request: may you help me with ID the rifle in the Lorna Doone. It's seems to be not a muzzleloaded gun. May it be the Chassepot 1866. Also, I have some question about Treasure Island (Ostrov sokrovishch) (1971) (I'm absolutely not sure in my guess, so, I only wrote it on disscussion page). Pyramid Silent (talk) 12:26, 25 October 2017 (EDT)

Many thanks! Pyramid Silent (talk) 14:45, 25 October 2017 (EDT)

RE: Le Deuxième Souffle

From what I've seen on IMFDB, yeah, we usually sort the weapons by name in their particular sections (an admin has been insisting on that, at least on video games pages), but to be honest I'm not sure if it's a rule that always needs to be applied to all pages (the order of significance does make sense). And yeah sure, I'll upload additional screenshots later (I don't have the film with me right now).

By the way, while we're at it, could you weigh in on the discussion for Rien à déclarer that we started months ago, in case you're able to correctly identify the particular weapons seen in the screencaps? Thanks.

--Ultimate94ninja (talk) 04:56, 2 December 2017 (EST)

I don't think so. It appears to have a dark finish like the Smith & Wesson Model 13 (I just re-watched the scene, and based on the lighting, I don't think it's supposed to be a stainless steel version tricking us into thinking otherwise), but at the same time it has a heavy barrel (similar to that of the 65-5 Ladysmith), which I'm not sure if it's available to the Model 13. --Ultimate94ninja (talk) 12:21, 5 December 2017 (EST)


I'd forgotten about those, yes. Evil Tim (talk) 14:09, 2 December 2017 (EST)

Help to ID the autocannons and military veachles

Hello, Greg-Z! Excuse me, I have some request: may you help me to ID the autocannons and military veachles in the Girls' Last Tour? Sorry, that's anime page, but, it's seems, that several of the autocannons and veachles are seems to be drawn rather realistic. So, if it possible, may you help me with ID? Thanks! Pyramid Silent (talk) 15:14, 13 January 2018 (EST)

Many thanks for the help! I corrected the page. Pyramid Silent (talk) 04:51, 14 January 2018 (EST)

A strange question about actor's page

Hello, Greg-Z! Excuse me, I have some question: if the page for an actor are eligibly, due his characters can be seen with two different types of firearms in two different movies, but had nopthing known about any detiles of his life (most likely, the only information, that currently known about him is the actor's credites in the movies endings), may I add it to actor's page, or it's useless information? Pyramid Silent (talk) 13:16, 24 January 2018 (EST)


Definitely not an FR F1; this shot is pretty telling of that, not to mention the different handguard as well. It does seem like a MAS-36 to me, though a custom variant (also, is that really a suppressor on it, or some kind of compensator?)

By the way, confirm with me, are these two revolvers a S&W Model 65-5 Ladysmith and an MR-73 respectively? (and here, the one below the MAC Mle 1950, do you think it's a S&W Model 27?) As for this one, do you have any idea about its ID?

--Ultimate94ninja (talk) 14:04, 1 February 2018 (EST)

Thanks. Regarding the Revolver-4, after checking again, it seems that not all the Model 65-5 revolvers are stainless steel, so maybe you're right. At the same time though, I looked up some images of the dark finish Model 13, and some variants actually have a heavy barrel like in the weapon in the movie (I think it's the case for at least the Model 13-4). What do you think, should we go for 65-5 or 13?
(Also btw, in regards to this discussion, the actual classification would be handheld heavy machine gun, eh?)

Request for a help

Hello, Greg-Z! Excuse me, I have some request: may you help me with ID the armored car in The Bomb (Bomba) (it's Uzbek movie, so, it's may be Uzbek made veachle). Also, now, I working on the large page Suicides (Samoubiytsy) and have some other request: althought, most firearms are clearly ID, please, if it's not hard may you check my ID. Thanks! Pyramid Silent (talk) 18:02, 19 February 2018 (EST)

Many thanks for the help! Now, I complited both pages. How do you think, is the all correct now? Pyramid Silent (talk) 14:20, 20 February 2018 (EST)
Maybe, I'm wrong, but the Tommy gun can be seen fired onscreen (I uploaded a few more screenshots). I had corrected several misspellings in English, later, I shall trying to find more. Pyramid Silent (talk) 15:22, 20 February 2018 (EST)

Some guess about a character in the Min-Series

Hello, Greg-Z! Exuse me, I have some question: is the character (at the left) holds any guns in the TV-series Here Lies the Border (Zdes prokhodit granitsa). His name is Khislyat and he was played by actor Utkur Khodzhayev, who also appeared in the movie The Seventh Bullet (Sedmaya pulya), when he also holds a firearms. So, if he holds a firearm in this TV-sries, the actor may have his own page. Pyramid Silent (talk) 19:53, 16 April 2018 (EDT)

Khislyat at the left.
"The Engineer" threatens Khislyat (Utkur Khodzhayev).

Many thanks! I shall try to find some toy revolvers with those reeces/ Also, how do you think, is the unknown shotgun the same model as the another one, or, it's different? Pyramid Silent (talk) 15:18, 17 April 2018 (EDT)

Sorry for the (possibly) wrong ID advice

Hello, Greg-Z! Once upon a time, I thought, that the Muskets in the Cuba are wheellocks. But, now, I think, that I was wrong: I found some much more close images (source) of the similar guns, and it's a Snaphaunce lock Moukhala Musket. Sorry for the wrong ID advice :( Pyramid Silent (talk) 15:42, 29 April 2018 (EDT)

SMG in Caution! Red Mercury! (Oberezhno! Chervona rtut!)‎

Hello, Greg-Z! Many thanks for the fixing my wrong ID. I had upload a few more photoshoped screenshot and have another guess: Talk:Caution! Red Mercury! (Oberezhno! Chervona rtut!)‎. What do you think about it? Pyramid Silent (talk) 15:50, 1 May 2018 (EDT)

Some question

Hello, Greg-Z! Excuse me, I have some request: how do you think, is the all ID in my new page The Wild East correct? Pyramid Silent (talk) 11:36, 6 June 2018 (EDT)

My guess about percussion muskets in Pyramid of the Sun God (Die Pyramide des Sonnengottes) and Treasure of the Aztecs (Der Schatz der Azteken)

Hello, Greg-Z! I have some guess about percussion meskets in the movies Pyramid of the Sun God (Die Pyramide des Sonnengottes), Treasure of the Aztecs (Der Schatz der Azteken). Maybe, it's just for me, but this short carbines are similar that also can be seen in the Chato's Land, while this long musket are similar to full leight Remington 1863 Zouave. For comprassion:

Remington 1863 Zouave Rifle - .58 Minie ball
Note the metal plate on the buttstock, similar barrel band position, similar positon of the sling attaching, similar leight, and possibly, similar position of rear sight (the last maybe just optical illusion).

Maybe, I'm wrong. Pyramid Silent (talk) 13:17, 15 June 2018 (EDT)

I also guess, that this rifle in the movie Apaches (Apachen) are flintlock:
If this image will be high upscaled, it can be seen the freezen, freezen spring and jaws with a flint.
