Lycoris Recoil (Japanese: リコリス・リコイル, Hepburn: Rikorisu Rikoiru) is a Japanese mixed-media project created by Kadokawa Corporation, Dentsu and Aniplex, including an anime television series produced by A-1 Pictures. It premiered in July 2022.

The following weapons were used in the anime series Lycoris Recoil:


Detonics CombatMaster

Chisato Nishikigi's weapon of choice is a Detonics CombatMaster with a strike face compensator and iron sights similar to the Tokyo Marui Strike Warrior (itself an airsoft pistol based on the CombatMaster). She uses specialized 'nonlethal' rounds that break up into a fine mist similar to Simunitions.

Smith & Wesson M&P9L

Takina Inoue uses a two-tone 5" barreled Smith & Wesson M&P most similar to the Smith & Wesson M&P9L. It has a vertical muzzle face like the M&P9 Pro Series, but it also has a large cutout behind the ejection port like the M&P9L.

Takina's pistol is normally fitted with the SilencerCo Osprey 9 Suppressor, and she does not use 'nonlethal' rounds.
