The Unknowns

Well firstly, I thought the first shotgun was a M1014, but then I saw it and knew the difference. The second shotgun, might be a shortened Remington, but the darkened place makes the shotgun hard to see. The third shotgun, the one carried by the thug. It might be a Remington or a Mossberg or even a Winchester.

The pistol looked liked a Colt M1911 or something similar.

The Sniper rifle, the body work looked like it was fitted onto something, as to make it look like a M40, so it might be a Accuracy International Arctic Warfare with an added bodywork.

The snub nosed revolver. I'm actually starting to think it's a S&W, but model wise, I'm not sure because there are different types of S&W revolvers that are snub nosed.

Hope this information helps.

Some Things

Well first off, I felt that Chris Ryan's Strike Back, since it being a good show, and having a plentiful of firearms in it, I saw no reason why it should not be on here. So I decided to do it myself. I didn't upload images, because 1) I lack the knowhow, 2) I was afraid of messing up and 3) I'm a bit afraid of copyright issues.

But for firearms notice, I watched the series when it was on, and I've seen a SiG Sauer P220 series pistol, maybe a G3 or something similar and an sniper rifle which I don't know, which was used in Episode 3. Shoockeye7665 07:49, 2 June 2010 (UTC) Sniper rifle looks like a remington M700 type?

Masuku's sniper rifle

I don't think it's a Truvelo anything. It appears to be some kind of homemade monstrosity built on a large-ring Mauser action. The bolt is clearly a Mauser. --Rugerlvr (talk) 14:24, 13 February 2014 (EST)

Friendly fire?

If Porter belives Collinson killed the soldiers in the beggining wouldn't seeing what round they got shot with prove that it was friendly fire? As Aks use 7.62 and M4s use 5.56?

Never mind I just watched the latest episode.

Sign your posts! And anyway, Collinson didn't use an M4 during the mission. And for my new edits, I'm doing the best I can, not to mess up and picture wise, I lack the knowhow. Shoockeye7665 13:51, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Why this pages is marked No effort

Per the IMFDB rules, it pretty much states "either make a complete decent page or don't do it at all". There are too many incomplete pages that some IMFDB members just zoom in, make and zoom away to do other things, leaving the rest of us to try to complete. That is no longer acceptable. Your page for example: The title needs to conform to the IMDB title of the series. Check with IMDB for the official title. Being a foreign (to us Americans) tv show, we don't have the immediate access to doing screencaps to help out the page and we don't want a lame page sitting on IMFDB for months (sometimes years). There are shows like Primevel, etc. which are aired here in the U.S. and also sold as DVD packs in our stores so you probably noticed that IMFDB who know how to make screenshots are slowly helping out those pages. But that's the rub. It's irritating for some members to just do the easy work and leave the "heavy lifting" for other members. IMFDB is slowing starting to not tolerate that. Learn how to do screencaps. Learn how to google the movie poster or TV poster or DVD cover or SOME sort of promotional poster and put it in the page. Pages like this can WAIT until someone gets the DVD set and begins to properly screencap it. We have people who are fans of all these foreign shows all over the world. We have people putting pages for Japanese, Chinese, Indian, German, Russian, South African shows etc. etc.. Some of them we can see here in the States. Some of them we cannot. If members want to be representatives of their countries, they must create good pages, or away they go. We've done this DANCE many times before with people before you. Now, some of the Asian and Bollywood users are getting used to the IMFDB standards and are starting to make good pages. But in the past, we've had to DELETE a bunch of horrid pages from foreign users who just didn't get it.

Now the NO EFFORT tag is not a mark of death. It just means that the page is being watched and if NO IMPROVEMENT is seen over the course of 1-2 weeks, it will be on the fast track for deletion. Also Deletion is not the end. A page can be resurrected at any time if the user has the poster, screencaps, etc. ready to upload. It doesn't take much to keep a page from being deleted, but if the page doesn't even fulfill that minimum requirements, then it is gone. MoviePropMaster2008 20:08, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Well, I'm really sorry about this, I really am. I do not wish to make other people do my dirty work. That's just being lazy and it can never happen. And about screencaps, I would like to know how to do it, but I'm afraid of copyright and I feel people's attitude to that is "Go find out yourself". But I never intended to get on the wrong side of you, MoviePropMaster2008, and I apologize with full intent. In future, I will keep in mind with what you said and I'll make sure it'll never happen again. And I just checked both the Wikipedia article and the IMDB articles for the program. Apparently it can be called simply "Strike Back" or "Chris Ryan's Strike Back". Shoockeye7665 10:08, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Dude. don't grovel! LOL. MPM just said that we need to do the page right or not at all. I don't think anyone was slamming you personally. Its just about all the crap they took in the past that makes them wary. 04:12, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

Series 2

Series 2 of Strike Back will be starting soon on Sky 1, entitled "Project Dawn", so there have been dozens of trailers. I couldn't see everything, but I did see a few folding-stock AKs and a couple of full-size Glocks.

Just if anyone's interested ;) --Taurus96 17:48, 3 August 2011 (CDT).

Its Coming Out On Cinemax. I Saw What Looked Like a Glock 17 or 19 and what Looked Like an AKMS. It Looks Sick. And I Just Watched A Video On Youtube That Shows a MP5SD6 and Maybe An A3 Or A5. It Stars Sullivan Stapleton As Damien Scott and Philip Winchester As Stonebridge --simmons 8492


IMDb has one page for both this and Strike Back: Project Dawn, with project dawn just being the second season. Shouldn't we do the same? --Funkychinaman 01:04, 5 December 2011 (CST)

I wouldn't because Project Dawn is such a large page already. I could rename the two into Strike Back (Season 1) and Strike Back (Season 2) if you'd like. --Markit 13:57, 5 December 2011 (CST)
Whenever a show has more than one season, and each season is very weapons-heavy, it's better to separate them. I have no problem re-naming these as Season 1 and Season 2 and then making a main Strike Back page, but we should definitely NOT combine them. -MT2008 14:38, 5 December 2011 (CST)
I created a disambiguation page on Saturday, so everything is pretty much in place, pages just need to be renamed. --Funkychinaman 14:46, 5 December 2011 (CST)
I hope this works. --Funkychinaman 15:59, 5 December 2011 (CST)

Short G3

The barrel on this gun is definitely too short to be a G3K, but it looks like it is slightly too long to be an MC51, is there anything in-between? If it is a custom shorty job, they intended it to be an MC51 as that is what it is listed as in the armourer's report that you see in one of the episodes, even though the person that reads it says it was a UMP (I guess the prop was made by the armourer as oppose to the dialogue done by a writer). --commando552 08:57, 8 August 2012 (CDT)
