The Morita rifle series is a series of fictional weapons created for the Starship Troopers series, with obvious influence from the M41A Pulse Rifle from 1986's Aliens.

The Morita rifle series and variants can be seen in the following films, television series, video games, and anime used by the following actors:

Morita Mk I Rifle

Morita Mk I Rifle; this example is missing the M60-style muzzle brake fitted to the rifle barrel.

The full-sized Morita rifle is used by Mobile Infantry standard/enlisted soldiers with the Morita Carbine being carried by fleet pilots and officers (see below). The weapons themselves are built around Ruger AC556 rifles with the full-size rifles also containing an underslung short-barreled Ithaca 37 shotgun. The weapons utilize a modified Muzzelite MZ14 Bullpup stock to house the Ruger AC-556 rifles and the Ithaca 37 shotguns (for the Morita rifle only). The Morita rifles and carbines in the film also feature a muzzle brake from the M60 machine gun.
