Does anyone actually watch this? --Funkychinaman (talk) 17:27, 7 March 2014 (EST)

I do. I love the show, but I wish there was more effort to accurately re-create the 80's setting. In terms of the firearms, it was irriting to see the use of anachronistic Beretta and Smith & Wesson pistols. There was also an episode that featured a SWAT team that I'm almost 100% sure was outfitted totally wrong for 1981, their equipment was too modern. What really stood out to me was that they were wearing PASGT ballistic helmets, and I can't find any photo evidence that SWAT teams issued this type before the mid to late 80's. Any photos I've found of SWAT from the early 80's, they are still only wearing ball caps or watch caps. I don't know if these mistakes are due to poor research or budget constraints, but I do find it annoying.-- Phillb36 (talk) 00:16, 8 March 2014 (EST)
Are you going to work on the page? --Funkychinaman (talk) 06:48, 9 March 2014 (EDT)
I watch this so if nobody else wants to I can do it. Season 2 has just started so will try and keep up to date with that and backfill in the season 1 stuff. I don't think the page needs to be split into season though as I don't remember there being that many weapon but to be honest I can't really remember the first season that well so could be wrong. --commando552 (talk) 07:02, 9 March 2014 (EDT)
No one should have to go out of their way. There's no reason to watch 13+ hours of TV to finish a page that took three minutes to create. --Funkychinaman (talk) 13:36, 9 March 2014 (EDT)
I don't plan on working on this page, so if anyone wants it, have at it.--Phillb36 (talk) 00:09, 10 March 2014 (EDT)




Were these weapons in the actual series? If so, what episode? A lot of times FX would shoot special scenes just for a promo (like they did on the series Justified). --Ben41 (talk) 16:13, 17 December 2016 (EST)


Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell) uses an SVD Dragunov to kill a target in Washington DC.

SVD Dragunov - 7.62x54mm R
The very incorrect reticule of the SVD in a very incorrect Washington D.C.


KGB agents also wield AKMs.

AKM - 7.62x39mm
