Notes and Abbreviations

The statistics presented here are for use with the universal roleplaying system GURPS by Steve Jack-
son Games, a highly recommendable, flexible and elegant system. A short introduction can be found
at http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/lite/.

The following abbreviations are used throughout this list:

Malf. Malfunction. A number indicates the skill roll number from which upwards the weapon fails
to operate. crit. means that the weapon malfunctions on a rolled critical miss, ver. requires a
second skill roll, the weapon fails if the second roll is also a failure (not necessarily a critical
failure).

Dmg. Damage. The amount of damage the weapon does. A is used for large-caliber weapons
(approx. more than mm), multiply the remaining damage after substracting armor by ..
A  is used for small-caliber rounds at low velocities (most pistol rounds with a caliber of less
than . mm), multiply the remaining damage by ..
A number in parenthesis is used for armor-piercing shaped-warhead rounds. Divide the armor
rating by that number before substracting it from the damage.

SS Snaphot Number. The eective skill required to fire the weapon without prior aiming. An indi-
cator for the weapons manageability or usefulness in close-quarters. - to skill if the Snapshot
Number is higher than the eective skill.

Acc Accuracy. The weapons inherent accuracy. Added to the skill when the weapon is aimed. A +
indicates some kind of sight enhancement such as a rifle scope.
1/2Dmg. Half-Damage Range. The range in meters at which the weapons accuracy drops to zero and
damage is halved.

Max. Maximum Range. The maximum range the wepon can fire at the most ecient angle under
normal conditions (earth gravity, normal atmosphere, etc.).

Wt. Weight. The weapons loaded weight in kilograms. The ammunition including magazine weighs
approximately .. kg for pistols and .. kg for rifles/SMGs.

RoF Rate of Fire. The weapons rate of fire in shots per second. A fraction means a single-shot
weapon requiring multiple turns of loading. A RoF of , or indicates a semi-automatic
weapon capable of firing up to that many single shots per turn. A RoF of or more without
the means a fully-automatic weapon that fires the listed number of rounds per turn. A
* indicates a selective-fire weapon that can either fire its RoF on automatic or at RoF on
semi-automatic.

ST Minimum Strength. The minimum strength needed to avoid additional recoil poenalties. Double
recoil for each point of strength below the ST of the weapon.

Rcl. Recoil. The weapons felt recoil. For single-shot or semi-automatic weapons apply the recoil
to the second and subsequent shot unless there is a one-second pause between shots. For
automatic weapons, apply recoil to the first burst of up to four rounds. Each subsequent burst
increases the recoil by itself (Rcl. -: - for the first burst, - for the second, - for the third,
etc.).

Cost The cost of the weapon when it was first introduced. Antique weapons may cost up to
times the original price as collectors weapons.


HO Holdout. The bonus (+) or penalty () the weapon causes to the users holdout skill to hide
the weapon. Generally a high penalty indicates a very large or unwieldy weapon and a bonus
indicates a small weapon that is easy to conceal.


Conversion to statistics for Dark Conspiracy

The following describes the conversion of the weapons statistics for use with Dark Conspiracy (st
Ed.):

Rate of Fire Use the following table to get the correct RoF for Dark Conspiracy:

GURPS RoF Dark Conspiracy RoF

1 either Single Shot (SS), Bolt Action (BA) or Lever Action (LA)
2 to 3 either Semi-Automatic (SA), Double Action Revolver (DAR) or Pump-Action (PA)
4 or more listed RoF0.4, rounded down

Damage Multiply the amount of damage dice with . (rounded up) to get the damage value for
DC. To reflect the more cinematic damage levels in Dark Conspiracy you can further reduce
the damage of larger weapons (d and up) by one or two levels.

Penetration The base penetration value is for small arms with caliber mm or less and for a
caliber of more than mm. However, the maximum penetration is damage minus one, so
weapons with a damage of have penetration nil. Penetration increases by one for each
range increment (i.e. after short) up to the maximum, after which it is nil. Pistols generally
only penetrate at short ranges, assault rifles up to medium ranges and only powerful sniper
rifles penetrate at long ranges.

Bulk Use the following table to convert holdout values into bulk values for Dark Conspiracy:

GURPS Holdout DC Bulk

+2, +1, 0 1
-1, -2 2
-3, -4 3
-5, -6 4
-7 and up 5

Recoil The base recoil for single shots is damage+, for burst fire (damage+). The final values
are modified by the following table:

Modifier to Damage Amount

fired from bipod -2


fired from tripod -3
fires 15 shots per second +1
weapon weighs 0.6 kg per bulk -1
any extra feature to increase controllability -1

Modifier to Total Amount

weapon has burst fire capability -1

Range Multiply the weapons accuracy by six (rounded to the nearest convenient number) to get
the short range category for Dark Conspiracy in meters.

Examples:


Weapon RoF Damage Penetration Bulk Recoil Range
Izhmekh PSM SA 1 nil 1 2 6
Walther P99 SA 1 nil 2 2 12
Taurus M454 DAR 3 2-nil 3 4 12
Thompson Contender SS 4 1-nil 3 5 40
H&K MP5 4 2 nil 3 2/3 45
AK-47 4 3 2-nil 4 3/5 40
H&K G3 4 5 2-3-nil 4 4/6 60
Arctic Warfare Magnum SS 6 2-3-4-nil 4 6 80


Conversion to Shadowrun statistics

To use the statistics presented here with Shadowrun (rd Edition), a bit of conversion has to be done.

Power Power Level = (number of d of damage ) , rounded up. Add one to the power level
for large caliber rounds () and substract one for small-caliber weapons ().
Damage Damage Level = (number of d of damage) ., rounded up. Take the result and set
the damagel level according to the following table:
Result Damage Level
12 Light
34 Moderate
56 Serious
7+ Deadly

Firing Modes Any weapon with a RoF of counts as single-shot (SS) for Shadowrun. Any semi-
automatic weapon () is exactly the same in Shadowrun (SA). A weapon with a RoF of
or more without the tilde of the asterisk counts as fully automatic (FA in SR) capable of firing
that many rounds per phase. A weapon with a RoF of or more with an asterisk counts both
fully automatic and burst-fire (BF) capable.

Range Use the normal range tables for Shadowrun weapons. Pistols with d of damage count as
Hold-Out Pistols, up to d counts as a Medium Pistol, pistols with damage of d or more are
Heavy Pistols in Shadowrun. Alternatively consider pistols with a positive holdout-modifier as
Hold-Outs, pistols with a HO of zero to - as Medium Pistols and pistols with HO of - and
less as Heavy Pistols.

Concealability Use plus the holdout-modifier as concealability in Shadowrun. Add one for rifles
and larger weapons.

Cost The cost in euro (B


C) can be used directly as cost in NuYen (), possibly multiplying the cost
in Shadowrun by . since firearms generally appear to be more expensive in the year .

Notes:

Light Pistols: If the Power Level is less then , multiply the Power Level by for purposes of deter-
mining the eective Level. If less then (but more than ) then multiply by ., rounded up. Dont
add caliber modifiers after multiplying.

Anti-Vehicular: Any weapon with an armor divisor of or more is considered an anti-vehicular


weapon in Shadowrun.

Anything else, such as legality, street index and availability is up to the GM. Use common sense!

Examples:


Weapon Type Conceal Mode Damage
Izhmekh PSM Hold-Out Pistol 9 SA 4L
Walther P99 Medium Pistol 7 SA 6L
Taurus M454 Heavy Pistol 5 SA 7M
Thompson Contender Heavy Pistol 4 SS 8M
H&K MP5 SMG 4 SA/BF/FA 5M
AK-47 Assault Rifle 4 SA/FA 8M
H&K G3 Assault Rifle 3 SA/BF/FA 10S
Arctic Warfare Magnum Sniper Rifle 3 SS 14D

The Collier is a gun of somewhat mysterious


parentage. It was patented in in France, Eng-
land and the United States, by three dierent men,
who were all former residents of the same New Eng-
land town. Most examples were made in England,
and it is usually known by the name of the English
patentee, Elisha Collier. The Colliers were well-
made guns. They had self-priming magazines and a
tight seal between cylinder and barrel that increased power and reduced fouling, backflashes, chain-
firing and misfires. Well-maintained Colliers malfunction on +. GMs can assign penalties up
to - for badly maintained or abused guns; they are delicate. Colliers cannot be fanned or slip-
hammered.Colliers were available new only in the largest cities of England, the American Atlantic
coast and Europe. Cost was not exorbitant, but availability was small and repairs demanded a highly
skilled gunsmith. In the th century, Colliers are high-priced antiques; one in near-perfect shape
will bring B

working man could pay, they were reliable and easy to repair. These first Colts were not widely
available because Colt could not get his finances in order. GMs should allow them to be purchased
only in the largest cities of the U.S. East and South, except in unusual circumstances.

In , Colt introduced one of the companys most


successful guns, the Dragoon. This was a massive
weapon, inches long and weighing four pounds.
It was one of the most powerful of black-powder
handguns, with a load of powder and lead that ap-
proached that of military rifles. The Dragoon was
preceded, in , by the even more massive Walker,

more powerful; use Dragoon stats but increase damage to d+ and weight to ., Holdout -. Only
a few Walkers were made and almost all went to the Army. Walkers were made of inferior steel and

In , Colt began sales of one of its most popu-


lar guns, the Navy .. The nickname came from
the scene, engraved on the cylinder, of a battle be-
tween ships of the Texan and Mexican navies. The
Navy was renowned for its balance and pointabil-
ity. Combined with the light recoil, this made it a
favorite for accurate shooting, but it was not no-
tably powerful. The Navy was a favorite sidearm of the Civil War and early gunfighters. Robert E.
Lee kept one in his saddlebags; Wild Bill Hickok kept a brace in his sash. Colt favored this gun as a
presentation piece. Elaborately engraved and stocked guns in plush-lined cases of the finest woods
were sent as gifts. Usually they went to monarchs, ministers of war or senior ocers who might slip
a lucrative contract to Colt. The Colt Army . of was a Navy frame with .-caliber barrel
and rebated cylinder. Use the same stats, except Rcl is -.

Available for sale in England in . One of the


first true double-action evolvers, that could be fired
by trigger pressure alone or by cocking the hammer
first. (Earlier Adams selfcocking revolvers, avail-
able from , looked much the same but could fire
only by trigger action.) This was the typical En-
glish revolver, as the single-action Colt was the typ-
ical American revolver. The British tended to favor
lighter loads than Americans for revolvers in the same caliber, hence the lesser damage. The Adams
put grains of powder behind a ball that the Colt Army launched with grains. Similar revolvers
were available in . (d-), . (d-) and . (d). The British called . caliber bore, .
bore, . bore and . bore. Basically similar Adams revolvers were made for cartridges from
. They were side-gate loading with rod ejectors. The . Adams was the British service revolver
in the s and s. (Dr. Watsons old service revolver was probably an Adams ..) Cartridge
.s have the same stats as caplock .s. .s have the same stats as .s and .s have the same
stats as .s. A gunsmith can convert any Adams from caplock to the corresponding cartridge in one
day at a price of BC. Adams revolvers were license-built or copied in Belgium, the United States,
Austria and Prussia. They could be found almost anywhere in the world.

.22 Short

A genuinely history-making gun on its introduc-


tion by Smith & Wesson in , it was the first
rimfire revolver and it introduced the . rimfire
cartridge, the most widely distributed cartridge of
the th and th centuries. It was neither power-
ful nor accurate, and it took a long time to reload.
(The cylinder had to be completely removed, and
the empties punched out one by one.) It was easy
to conceal and it could be loaded and holstered with a betting chance that it could be drawn and fired
a month later. It was also made, from , in . Rimfire (d damage).

In , S&W brought out their first big-bore re-

break, simultaneously extracting revolver. In ,
the Russian Imperial Army adopted the S&W as
their service revolver. S&W slightly redesigned the
cartridge and gave it the name . Russian, but the
dimensions are so similar that one round will usu-
ally work in a gun chambered for the other. .
Russian will work perfectly in any gun chambered for . Special or . Magnum (also in the I I

in use as late as WWII.) The . Russian was the best production target pistol of its time and was
used to set many world records. Copies, both licensed and unlicensed, of the . S&W were made in
many countries, particularly Spain and Belgium. It was ocially replaced in Russian service in ,
but was still issued as late as WWII. Some were provided from Russian stocks to equip the Cuban
militia in the s. The same frame was used for . caliber guns (use range and damage stats for
the . Colt Navy).

.45 Long Colt

In , the United States Army ocially adopted


the Colt to replace its hodgepodge of cartridge and
caplock handguns. The Colt, with a -grain bul-
let over grains of powder, was tremendously
powerful for its time and had a tremendous kick.
To alleviate this, the Army standard load was
grains of powder in a slightly shorter case. This case
would also fit the S&W Schofield top-break, self-
extracting revolvers that the Army tested starting in . (The Army soon discarded the Schofields,
but they were popular among civilians; Jesse James robbed banks with one and Wells, Fargo issued
them to guards and detectives.) This load is ocially the . Army, but is sometimes called the .
Short. Stats on the table are for the . Army; for the full-power load make Damage d- and Rcl

mon in the Americas were Colts chambered for the Winchester rifle cartridges, .-, .- and

and range scats for the Colt Dragoon. For ., use stats for the . Special, but use the modifier

among them.

C +1
.38 S&W

Introduced in , this was the preeminent holdout


gun of the late th and early th centuries. The
gun was small, with a smooth profile and no pro-
truding sights or hammer. (The hammer was in-
side the mechanism and the gun could only be fired
double-action.) Its most common nickname was
Lemon Squeezer; it had a grip safety and, unless the
grip was held firmly in firing position, squeezing
the safety, it would not fire. This, and the lack of an
entangling hammer, made it the most suitable sort
of gun to be carried in a pocket. It could even be fired from a pocket with little danger of jamming.
Millions of this gun, copies of it and near-identical designs, were made in the United States and
Europe. It was the least expensive and most commonly available quality handgun; after , any
pawnshop probably has one at % to % of new price. Criminals favored the gun because it was
concealable, economical and anonymous; cops liked it as a second gun or o-duty gun. It was also
made in . S&W (d-). Single-action guns of much the same design and in the same calibers were
available from . Use the same stats, but they can only be fired single-action; if fired from a pocket,

7.62 mm Nagant

The Nagant was adopted in , ocially replaced


in , but still in use all through WWII in Rus-
sia. It was an unusual weapon. Though never very
widely distributed in the West, millions were pro-
duced in Russia and distributed all over Asia and
Eastern Europe. It has a seven-shot cylinder and is
side-gate loading and rod-ejecting. The cartridges
completely cover the bullet; when the gun is fired,
the cylinder moves forward and the barrel and car-
tridge mate to seal the weapon against gas loss. This gives a significant edge in velocity and makes
the Nagant one of the few revolvers that can be eectively silenced. (This only works if both gun and
ammunition are in first-class condition.) The Nagant was manufactured both as a double-action and
a single-action.

In , S&W introduced a swing-out cylinder, si-

security sidearm of America in the th century.
Since the s, the most common version (four-
inch barrel, fixed sights, square butt) has been
called the Model . It was made in barrel lengths
from two inches to eight inches, in round and square butts, with fixed or adjustable sights, in every
finish from military gray to goldplated. Through all the changes, it was basically the same gun. The
essential design was so satisfactory that its competitors all worked in almost exactly the same way;

C -2
919 mm Parabellum

The P line of pistols can be drawn, cocked, and


fired accurately faster than any other pistol. The
unique HK cocking lever allows the P to be car-
ried safely with a round in the chamber, yet it is
ready to fire by the intentional tightening of the
fingers around the grip. Releasing the cocking
lever decocks the P immediately and renders it
completely safe. The unique P gas system re-
tards the movement of the recoiling slide dur-
ing firing and eliminates the need for a conven-
tional locking mechanism. The diverted cham-
ber gasses are used to extract the spent casing, re-
gardless of weapon orientation, and even with a
broken extractor. As a result, the spent casings bear a distinctive scorch pattern, as do the casings
from almost every H&K weapon. A low profile slide contributes to the balanced center of gravity and
overall compact size of the P. Constructed of a tough, scratch-resistant alloy, the low profile keeps
the recoiling mass to a minimum. Combined with the optimal grip angle of degrees, the result is
an accurate, low recoil pistol; well suited for military and law enforcement users. The P Line comes
in five dierent models:
The PM is the basic model for which the above statistics are. The PM diers from the PM by
incorporating a slightly wider frame to house a double-stacked -round magazine. Weight is g.
The PM is somewhat similar to the PM, though it is chambered for the more powerful .
S&W cartridge (Dmg. d+, Rcl. -) and incorporates double-stacked -round magazine. It also
has a slightly heavier slide in order to oset the heavier recoil of the . S&W round. Weight is g.
The PM is slightly larger than the PM and fires the heavy . ACP cartridge from a single-stacked
-round magazine. Instead of using the usual P gas system to delay the recoiling slide, the PM uses
an oil-filled cylinder inside of which a piston must pass, thereby delaying the recoil movement of the
slide. This system eliminates the need for a conventional locking mechanism, and keeps felt recoil to
a minimum (Dmg. d-, Rcl. -). Barrel length is mm and weight is kg. The PK is the compact
version in the P series. Available in . ACP caliber (Dmg. d, Rcl. -), with conversion kits for
. Long Rifle and . ACP. Unlike the other pistols in the P series, the PK uses a simple blowback
operation; no delay is necessary with these light calibers. Barrel length is mm and weight is g.

This former-Soviet pistol by Izhmekh looks like


a smaller version of the Makarov pistol. PSM

it very concealable, but the low-velocity small-
caliber bullet is not very eective. Chambered
for its own proprietary cartridge, the design team
showed masterful skill in cartridge design as well
by recognizing that the weak stopping power of
most pocket pistol cartridges is due to poor pen-
etration. The PSM, using its own specially designed armor piercing bullet, is capable of regularly
penetrating layers of kevlar or NIJ level II body armor. It is employed by the MVD (Ministry of

sor, the Walther P, that did not achieve any sig-
nificant commercial cussess, mainly due to high

It is striker fired, and has no manual safeties and
three automatic safeties: Striker safety, Trigger
safety and Out of battery safety. Also, it has man-
ual decocking button in the rear upper part of the slide. Also Walther developed the QA action, which
has a partially pre-charged striker that must be manually charged to full stroke via each trigger pull
(somewhat similar in appearance to Glocks safe action). A licensed version of the P is manu-
factured in the USA by Smith & Wesson under designation of the S&W . This guns has USA-made

tional weight greatly improves recoil control and makes the shooting quite comfortable, despite the
powerful ammunition and small size of the guns.

Thanks to the economic sanctions caused by its


racist regime, the South Africa had to develop
its own arms industry. Vektor was part of that
industry, and now that the sanctions have been
lifted, it is marketing its products abroad. The
SP (. S&W d, /D , Max , Shots
+) is similar in design to the SP, the only
dierences are in caliber and magazine capacity.
Moreover, the SP could be converted into mm
with the installation of a new mm barrel, recoil
spring and magazine. Both the SP and SP are
blowback-operated, locked breech designs with
falling block locking mechanism, inherited from Vector Z pistol, which, in turn, is a clone of the
famous Beretta M handgun. The South African armed forces use the Z as their main sidearm.
The SP is an improved Beretta-copy oered for export. The slide is strengthened considerably, com-
pared to the Z, and the grip is shaped better. The result is a high-quality yet reasonably priced
high-capacity handgun. Also available in comped models (factory-option recoil reduction, ST and
cost BC).

919 mm Parabellum

The P has been developed by Carl Walther Waf-


fenfabrik, Germany, in , as a high capacity,
military and law enforcement pistol. The pro-
duction of the P had been ceased in , and
it had been replaced in production by P Com-
pact (Holdout , d+, Acc , Shots +), which
is somewhat lighter and smaller, with some tech-
nical dierences from the original P. The P
Competition, with adjustable sights and other
minor changes, also had been produced as a
sporting firearm. The P is a recoil operated,
locked breech semi-automatic pistol. It diers
from previous Walther pistols, such as the P/P
& P in that it uses conventional Browning style locking with the barrel lowered by shaped cam in
the barrel extension under the chamber. The locking is achieved by single massive lug on the barrel,
that locks into the ejection port of the slide. The P trigger system is quite similar to that of the
Walther P, but the P has an ambidextrous frame mounted de-cocking lever. The same internal
safeties, as in the P are also available (firing pin safety, out of battery safety/disconnector). The P
featured a steel construction, with fixed sights and high capacity, double stack magazines. Despite
being a good pistol, the P whas too pricy, so Walther discontinued it in favour of the slightly lighter
and smaller P Compact, which also featured a redesigned safety the frame mounted decocker
had been replaced by ambidextrous slide mounted safety.

919 mm Parabellum

The most tested and trusted personal defense


weapon in history, developed by Italian gun-
maker Armi Pietro Beretta Spa. The FS, desig-
nated M by the U.S. Military, not only meets or
exceeds all US Military testing guidelines, it to-
tally revises them. With U.S. Government stan-
dard for pistol reliability set at MRBF (Mean
Rounds Between Operational Mission Failure),
the M averages rounds for reliability.
Each pistol must pass a battery of over
quality control checks and measures that includes
complete inter-changeability of parts. Series Pistols are semi-automatics and operate on the short
recoil, delayed locking block sys-tem, which yields a faster cycle time. Each features a lightweight,
forged frame made from aircraft-quality aluminum alloy. A combat trigger guard is standard. The
slide and other steel components are coated with Bruniton, a Teflon based material that provides
superior corrosion resistance and reduced friction between frame and slide. There is a wide array of
pistols from which to select, each with unique features. The original Beretta is no longer in
production. The Beretta SB features an ambidextrous safety/decocker switch on the slide, firing
pin block and hammer half-cock. Magazine release button was relocated to the spot just behind the
trigger guard. In all other aspects the model SB is identical to the model S. The Beretta FS
was submitted to the US XM Army Pistol Trials in . Adopted by the US military as pistol M.
Manufactured both in Italy and in USA by Beretta USA. Also adopted by many other military and law
enforcement forces. Features chrome-lined barrel, recurved trigger guard for improved two-hands
grip, new grip panels and Bruniton finish. The FS is available as Brigadier with a redesigned,
heavier slide and a removable front sight blade, as Elite with a slightly shortened barrel (down to
mm) and as Centurion with an even shorter barrel ( mm). Variations in chambering are the
Beretta (. S&W, + rounds, d Dmg., Rcl. -) and the Beretta (. mm Parabellum), which
is no longer in production.

so that it will not get caught in any clothes or
similar things. The gun has been entirely covered
with a Teflon-S finish that eliminates the need
for lubricating. It has been fitted with a gut-
tersnipe, with three luminescent dots, for quick
target aquisition rather than precision sighting.
The dots come in handy in the dark. Also, the
handle and the magazine have a plastic window that allows the user to check how many bullets re-

The P was commonly called Luger in the


US after one of its designers (George Luger,
the other being Hugo Borchardt) while in Ger-
many it was called Parabellum-Pistole, System
Luger/Borchhardt after the round it fired (which
got its name after the latin proverb Si vis pacem,
para bellum If you want peace, prepare for
war). All Ps are recoil-operated, locked breech,
semi-automatic, striker fired handguns. They
feature a unique locking system, consisting of two
upwards-tilting bars and a short moving barrel. Some early models featured an automatic grip safety
at the rear side. All models also feature a frame-mounted manual safety at the left side of the gun.
The first Ps were available in , in . mm (called . Luger in the United States). The Ger-
man armed forces felt that this was too small a caliber, so the Mauser company blew out the bottle-
necked case to a near straight-wall. This turned out to be mm, and so the most widely dis-tributed
military-pistol round of the th century was developed. The . mm and mm Lugers are very
nearly identical; one can be converted to the other by changing barrel, recoil spring and magazine.
. mm Lugers have the same stats as mm except Damage d, /D , and Max . The German
navy adopted the mm Luger in and the army in (hence the ocial name P). The United
States tested a . caliber (d damage) version in , but did not adopt it and only a few were made.
The Army destroyed its stock after test. They would be very rare anytime; modern value would prob-
ably be in six figures. The Luger was adopted by several armies, and was made for commercial sale in
several countries. Millions of Lugers were made in many versions (including a carbine). A shoulder
stock/holster combination was available for any of the pistols giving + to Acc using Guns (Rifle).
Another accessory for the mm guns was a -round snail-drum magazine. Loaded weight of the
magazine is . kg; it is bigger and heavier than the pistol itself. It takes a spe-cial tool to load, at the
rate of one round every two seconds. The Luger is exceptionally easy to point and shoot; it has a SS

The history of the Colt Government/M pistol


began in early , when famous designer John
M. Browning began to develop semi-automatic
pistols for Colt company. In - the US
Army announced trials to replace its service re-
volvers with new, semi-automatic pistol. The
army required the new pistol to have a . caliber,
so Browning designed a new cartridge that fired a
. g bullet, and then designed a pistol around
it. In , after extensive testings, the new pis-
tol and its cartridge, designed by Browning and
manufactured by Colt, were adopted for US military service as M. It remained standard until the
s (replaced by the Beretta ). It was also adopted by countries as diverse as Norway, Mexico,
Argentina and China. Mexico and Argentina developed very similar guns firing the same cartridge.
The . is famous for reliability. The . has probably been more extensively customized and modi-
fied than any gun in history. Paying double the original cost of the gun in custom work can increase
the Acc to ; loading with high-powered ammunition, at three times standard cost per round, can
increase damage to d+. After , scope sights and laser sights are available. The Colt is also
available in mm and . Super (Damage d+, Rcl -), . ACP (Damage d, Rcl -l) and mm

In , Walther introduced a then-radical de-


sign, a double-action-first-shot auto-loading pis-
tol. Walther called it the PP (Polizeipistole or Po-
lice Pistol). In , a slightly modified version
was introduced under the name PPK (ocially
Polizeipistole-Kriminal or Polizeipistole Kurz, im-
plying that it was the smaller version of the PP,
for plain-clothes ocers). The PP is very like
the PPK; the only real dierence in game terms is
that the PP has an eight-shot magazine. Both the
Walthers are also available in . LR (same shots)
and . ACP (one shot less). They were favorites
of the Nazi hierarchy and are often found in elab-
orately engraved and decorated versions with pearl or ivory stocks. In . ACP (also called mm
Short, Kurz or Corto), Damage is d, /D is , Max . In . LR Damage is d, /D , Max .
Technically, the PP and PPK are blowback operated double-action handguns. Both have chamber
loaded indicators, an external hammer, manual safety and out of battery safety. The manual safety
is somewhat odd, because it has to be turned up to be set to firing position, instead of down, which
is more commonly used. The PPK became especially popular as James Bonds weapon in almost all
novels and all but the most recent movies, when the secret agent switched to more modern Walther

A large single action semi automatic weapon, this


is the brainchild of Harry Sanford, creator of the
original automag. One of the few semi auto-
matic guns that fires the . AE cartridge, it is the
most ergonomic and lightweight of all of those
autoloaders. Its integral compensator ports in the
barrel make it surprisingly light to shoot for such
a powerful cartridge, altough it is still not a gun
for the weak of heart. It has a shot magazine
and is, like all of the AMT guns, made of stainless
steel. The Automag V is a fairly conventional pistol design using a modified Browning tilting-barrel
lockup system. It is fairly light compared to other pistols firing this round, The barrel and slide come
factory-ported to reduce recoil. However, the Automag V has reported problems of reliability, ev-
idently dropping the magazine during firing, although design changes shoud correct this problem
(Malf. for early models). The Automag V is long out of production and as there were only approx.
made, it is rather dicult to find. The Automag IV is nearly identical, except for

.475 Wildey Magnum

Also called the Wildey Wolf, the . Wildey


Magnum is one of the most powerful handgun
cartridges on earth. Gun maker and wildcat car-
tridge designer Wildey J. Moore introduced this
cartridge in the s for use in a gas-operated
semi-automatic pistol also of his own construc-
tion. Ammunition is very rare to come by and
subsequently quite expensive (ca. B C/round).
Initially, the Wildey Magnum was chambered for
the . Winchester but was changed to the . Wildey round soon after introduction, though it is
still available for that caliber (as well as . Wildey Magnum, . Wildey Magnum and the . Wildey
Magnum). The Wildeys recoil is partly oset by a sophisticated gas venting mechanism. It is gas-
operated, instead of recoil-operated as most semi-automatic handguns and can be set to dierent
loads to equalize recoil. The Wildey Magnum was featured as Charles Bronsons handgun in the
movie Death Wish III (which is of course of arguable quality).

the bolt are not required. There is a forward
handgrip, and a sound suppressor can be fit-
ted. The firing mechanism is the usual Steyr
system; a light pressure on the trigger give
semi-automatic fire, and a heavier pull give fully automatic fire. The safety is a three-position cross-
bolt button on the front edge of pistol grip, behind the trigger guard. The first position safes the
weapon, the second oers the semi/full pressure-regulated fire, and the third oers fully automatic
fire only. -round magazines are available for the Steyr TMP (HO -). A semi-automatic-only

and in line with the barrel and the weapons recoil. With the higher grip, the recoil does not force
the weapon to pivot upwards in the firers hand (it just pushes backwards and stays on target). Other
features in the Jati-Matic include a folding foregrip that acts as a safety when folded and progressive

UZI and the Steyr TMP. The PDW was
in prototype stage in and entered
production in . The PDW was adopted by some German special units, such as the KSK. Later
versions may include a full-auto option (RoF ), on customer demand. The weapon can be set to
fire single shots or three-round bursts, at one burst per pull of the trigger, for a maximum of three
bursts per round. There is an optional -round magazine, with adverse eects on handling (SS

919 mm Parabellum

The Spectre was developed by Italian com-


pany SITES in the mid-s. It was de-
signed primarily for close combat, anti-
terror or police operations that require com-
pact size, instant firepower at short ranges
and safety of operations. The Spectre is a
recoil operated, automatic firearm. It fires
from the closed bolt position for better sta-
bility with a dramatic decrease in climb and
vibration. The polygonal rifling helps accu-
racy as well. The trigger group is more sim-
ilar to handguns, than to traditional SMGs
it is double action without manual safety
but with decocker. Thus, the Spectre could
be carried with loaded chamber and hammer down and then fired immediately simply by pressing
the trigger. The receiver of the Spectre is made from stamped steel, which provides greater accuracy.
The bolt is so designed that it acts as an air pump to push air through barrel shroud and provide
additional cooling for the barrel and action (very useful when firing long bursts). The Spectre has a
top-folding stock and a polymer forward handle. It uses high-capacity, four column magazines for
increased firepower. Rcl is - with stock folded. -rounds magazines are also available (HO -).

a trained individual to control it. A suppres-
sor makes it more controllable (Rcl - when firing bursts). Recoil is - when firing single shots. It
has a folding stock, which reduces burst recoil to -. Many companies manufacture exact copies or

919 mm Parabellum

The MP /I (curiously enough, there


was no model , just the /I) was
the first submachine gun to see wide
use, with the German army in .
The first models, designed by Hugo
Schmeisser and produced by Waenfabrik Theodor Bergmann, used the -round snail-drum
magazine developed for the Pistol (Parabellum or Luger). After the war, a more conven-
tional box magazine was adopted, with the same capacity which was inserted into the left side of the
gun. Like most SMGs, the capacity of the magazine is the capacity of the gun; they fire from an open
bolt. The only way to chamber a round is to fire it. The Bergmann continued in production and was
used extensively in China, South America and Europe between the World Wars. In , the British
needed SMGs in a hurry; they copied the Bergmann, naming it the Lanchester for the engineer who
made a few changes in the design and set up production. For reasons of production economy, the
magazine housing was made of brass, and it had a brass butt-plate like the Lee-Enfield rifle. The
bluing on the steel was deep and lustrous, and the heavy rifle-type stocks were dark walnut. It also
had a -round magazine and sights graduated to yards. Lanchesters have Acc in semi-auto
fire. The Lanchesters all went to the Royal Navy; most of them were chained in racks aboard ship and
only removed to be lovingly cleaned and polished - especially the brass.

.45 ACP

General John Talliaferro Thompson


was already one of the most respected
names in US ordnance before his com-
pany Auto Ordnance Inc. designed the
Thompson sub-machine gun (com-
monly also called the Tommy-gun). He conceived the gun during WWI, but did not have a practi-
cal working model until after the war; it was first available for commercial sale in as the M.
The Thompson had only very limited military use before WWII; the US Marines and Navy used a few
in Central America and China and several countries (including Germany) tested them. But they were
very widely used in less formal conflicts (mostly the M version with foregrip). The gangsters of
prohibition-ridden USA and the terrorists/patriots of the IRA were the first to use them widely; they
were followed by police, prison guards and prohibition agents. The FBI adopted the Tommy-gun
as soon as they were ocially allowed to carry guns, in . Well over a million Thompsons were
made, possibly twice that many. They were copied without license all over Asia. In the s, with the
supply of Thompsons badly depleted, semiautomatic-only copies were manufactured in the United
States. They sold for B C and were real Thompsons; the manufacturer purchased the patents. The
Thompson can use both box and drum magazines. The box magazines, normal for the military
gun (late-model military Thompsons will use only the box magazine) are -and -shot; the drums
come in - and round versions. The -round drum weighs . kg loaded; the - round weighs
almost . kg loaded (this nearly doubles the weight of the gun; with a - round drum it weighs as
much as a BAR). Drum magazines take the same time to change as other magazines, but they take
a lot longer to reload (three seconds to prepare the drum and one second per round to put in the
ammunition). Drums are noisy to carry (- to Stealth) and prone to jam unless they are in perfect
condition and very carefully loaded (Malf , at the GMs discretion, for abused or damaged drums).
Most Thompsons were the military version, the M (or even more simplified, the MA), which was
first issued in as a simplified for war-time production variant of M with select-fire control
and a simple blowback mechanism, issued with -round stick magazines and replacing the front
pistol grip with a flat foregrip. The charging handle is located at the right side of the receiver. The
stats on the table are for that model. The commercial Thompsons were good-looking guns, blued-
steel with polished walnut stocks. They had very precise adjustable sights (in semi-auto use as rifle
with Acc ). Cutts compensator and vertical foregrip helped in control (Rcl -). A Thompson with
the vertical front-grip and compensator is Rcl - with the butt-stock removed; with no stock and
foregrip or compensator missing, it is -; without stock, foregrip and compensator, it is -. Holdout

The German Army was forbidden by


the Treaty of Versailles to have SMGs.
Nevertheless, design and manufacture
went on, sometimes under the cover
of Swiss or Swedish companies. In
, the Army ocially adopted the
successor to the MP & MP, the
MP (Maschinenpistole ma-
chine pistol ), manufactured by Er-
furter Maschinenfabrik Geipel GmbH.
Some minor changes produced the MP which is operationally the same as the MP. Both the
MP and the MP are blowback operated, full auto only submachine guns. The MP uses re-
ceiver made of machined steel, while the MP features a stamped receiver and a stamped magazine
veil to make the gun cheaper. The charging handle (located at the left side of the receiver) is used as a
safety, locking the bolt in forward or rearward position when placed in cut slots in the receiver. Both
guns fire from the open bolt and feature a special rate of fire reducer, that results in very controllable
rate of fire of some - rounds per minute. It features a folding-stock (without, Rcl. is -). The
MP/ is probably the most recognizable German weapon of WWII. Originally it was intended for
parachutists and tank crews. It was such a satisfactory gun that by the end of the war, it sometimes
was the major armament of an entire squad. Americans usually call the MP a Schmeisser despite
the fact that Hugo Schmeisser had nothing to do with the design, which was from Heinrich Vollmer
working for Erma (Erfurter Maschinenfabrik) whereas Schmeisser worked for Haenel. In , Hugo
Schmeisser disappeared after the Russian occupation; maybe his name was too well-known.

munist armies from to about . The USSR made millions of this SMG; almost any picture of
an Eastern Bloc soldier from to was likely to show the Russian burp gun. The PPSh was
preceded by the similar PPD in ; the PPSh was simpler and cheaper to manufacture, but kept
the PPDs -round drum magazine and had similar lines. The PPSh- was designed as a cheap and
simple but eective war-time weapon. It features simple blowback operated action and is fired from
an open bolt. The striker was permanently fixed in the bolt face. The PPSh- is a select-fire SMG,
with the fire selector switch located inside the triggerguard, in front of the trigger. The safety was in-
tegrated into the charging handle and locked the bolt in forward or rearward position. In WWII, the
Russians armed entire infantry battalions with nothing but PPSh-s. They were assigned directly to
tank units. The infantry rode on the outside of the tanks, clinging to handles welded to the armor.
The PPSh was distributed around the world and has an outstanding reputation for ruggedness. The

919 mm Parabellum

In the British were desperate for


weapons. The losses of the first year
of war had to be made up, and new
weapons made for the troops just com-
ing into service. Two engineers named
R. V. Shepherd and H. J. Turpin at the
Royal Small Arms Manufactory, Enfield, designed a submachine gun that could be produce rapidly
with minimal investment in tooling. It was called the Sten from their initials and the first two letters
of Enfield. That and the cheap and nasty appearance got it the nickname stench gun. It was also
called the Woolworth gun or gas-pipe gun. The British manufactured a lot of Stens; so did quite
a few other people. The simple design lent itself to production with few tools. Stens were being made
at the height of production for less than B
C apiece. The first Sten, Mk.I, was developed in mid-.
It was a blowback operated, automatic weapon that fired from the open bolt. The tubular receiver
and the barrel shroud were made from rolled steel. The Mk.I was fed from left side mounted box
magazines. The skeleton-type stock was made from steel, the sights were fixed, adjusted for yards
distance with peep hole rear and blade front. The Sten featured a spoon-like muzzle jump compen-
sator. Some guns featured small folding forward grip. Better-looking Mk.Vs appeared in and
remained in service until the early s, being replaced by then-new Sterling SMGs. The Sten was al-
ways plagued with reliability problems; most could be traced to the magazine, which was both poorly
designed and badly made. Experienced soldiers went through all the magazines available to select a
few that worked well (GMs might raise Malf. to crit. for veterans who have had the opportunity to
do this).

the stock folded or removed. (Both folding-metal and fixed-wooden stocks are available.) The stan-
dard magazine is rounds, but -round and -round versions are made. The magazine well is in
the pistol grip, which keeps down length and helps protect the magazine. The Uzi has been developed
on the basis of the Czech M and M submachine gun, utilising their overall design and many fea-
tures, but with a completely dierent receiver (rectangular instead of round in the cross-section) and
other changes. The Uzi is a recoil-operated, select fire submachine gun, firing from the open bolt.

features a safety/fire selector switch on the left side of the receiver, along with an automated safety on

919 mm Parabellum

The Heckler und Koch MP (first avail-


able in ) is unusual for an SMG; it
fires from a closed bolt and can have
one round more than the magazine ca-
pacity in the chamber. This makes it
more accurate in semi-automatic fire
but prone to overheating in full-auto.
The MP is a recoil-operated, roller-
delayed blowback, select-fire weapon
(overall design is very similar to the
H&K G battle rifle). It was designed
for police duties, on the theory that most shots will be aimed semi-auto with full-auto only for emer-
gencies. The standard version is just over two feet long with a fixed stock or the collapsible metal
stock extended, about inches with the stock retracted. Old variants of the MP had a ported metal
handguard and straight box magazines; Newer ones have a polymer handguard and curved box mag-
azines to ensure reliable feeding. For some time H&K produced mm Auto and . S&W versions
of MP, called MP/ and MP/ (both are Dmg. d), respectively, but they are now discontinued
in favor of the newer H&K UMP submachine gun. MPs are rugged, reliable and accurate weapons,
one of the best in this class. They have been adopted by more than sixty nations and are available in
a wide variety to fit most tactical needs (over variants, diering in trigger groups, safety, sights,
etc.). The silenced version (MPSD) has a permanently mounted silencer that also reduces the muz-

5.7 28 mm SS190

Available from the early s, this


Belgian-made gun (manufactured by
Fabrique National Herstal, Lige) is
a radical new personal weapon of
compact and unusual shape firing a
cartridge midway between pistol and
rifle power. Its large magazine is hor-
izontal rather than vertical and an er-
gonomic grip encloses the trigger hand. The P (not named after its year of introduction, ,
but rather after Project . at FN) is an intermediate weapon, falling somewhere between SMG
and assault rifle. The P is a blowback operated, selective fire weapon. It is fed from -rounds
box magazines, made from transluscent polymer. The magazine is located above the barrel, with the
cartridges aligned at degrees to the barrel axis. Each magazine has built-in ramp that rotates the
cartridge to align it with the barrel prior to chambering it. The P controls are completely am-
bidextrous, with the charging handles located at both sides of the weapon, and the safety/fire mode
selector located below the trigger. The P ejects spent cases downwards. It is built in bull-pup
configuration, with polymer stock, and features a built-in reflex collimator sight with magnifica-
tion and reticle automatically adjustable to the light level, as well as a set of the backup open sights.
Damage depends on ammunition: SS standard ball d, SB subsonic ball d (not reduced by
silencer). The rounds are very light: rounds per kg. The silencer can be mounted (and removed)
in seconds (- to hear shoots, - to recognize if unfamiliar with).

appeared on the markets in . The
key idea behind the UMP was to cre-
ate a lightweight and powerful subma-
chine gun, that will also be cheaper
than one of H&Ks flagships, the MP.
The UMP, targeted primary at the USA
law enforcement market, first appeared in . ACP (UMP), and . S&W chamberings (UMP),
and later in mm (UMP, Dmg. d+). It is a blowback-operated (instead of the classic H&K princi-
ple of roller-delayed blowback) select-fire submachine gun, firing from the closed bolt. The receiver
is made from polymers, the controls are fully ambidextrous. The UMP can be fired in full-auto,
in single shots, and in or round bursts (optional). The UMP also has a bolt hold-open device,
which traps the bolt in the open position when the last round from magazine had been fired. UMP
has side-folding buttstock and two set of rails that can accept a wide variety of sighting and other
equipment, such as red-dot sights, laser pointers, tactical grips and flashlights. The barrel has quick
mount for snap-on silencer that can be mounted (and removed) in seconds (- to hear shoots, -

sault rifle, modified to fire less powerful pistol ammunition. Modifications include a barrel withouth
gas porting, a simple blowback bolt, a modified magazine port and a CAR--type retractable butt-
stock. A . mm variant is available as the Colt Model Commando. The Model fires from
the closed bolt to improve accuracy and maintains an M-type trigger group. It has a three-position
safety-fire selector with semi-automatic and full-auto firing modes. The Colt Model is similar to
Model except that it features an MA type trigger group, with semi-automatic and three-round
burst modes. The Colt Model is a carbine variant with only semi-automatic mode of fire. The
Model SMG features an even shorter barrel ( mm) with a simplified front sight.

5.56 45 mm

Known as the Galil Micro Assault Ri-


fle (or GMAR, manufactured by Israeli
Military Industries), this SMG and the
Uzi are both roughly equivalent in size
whether their stocks are folded or ex-
tended. IMI has shortened the Galils
barrel to mm in length, and it there-
fore requires a shorter gas tube. As a
more potent . mm substitute to mm sub machine guns. While SMGs are ideal for civilian short
range usage and Close Quarters Combat (CQB) scenarios, in military applications their inherently
short range and low body armor penetration are major disadvantages. Due to overheating problems
when firing bursts or fully automatic, the GMAR was never ocially adopted by the Israeli Defence
Forces, apart from a few samples that entered the IDF as a status symbol for high-ranking ocers. A
modified version of the Galil MAR the Magal was bought by the Israeli Police as an urban area
assault rifle, replacing in that role the old M carbine. A special set of handguards were designed with
lips at the front and rear to prevent the users hand from slipping either way and to protect the user
from the barrels heat. The sights are arranged like those on the Uzi: front post adjustable for ele-
vation, flip-type rear adjustable for windage and protective ears surrounding both. The GMAR fires
from a rotating bolt and is gas-operated. From a logistics standpoint, the Micro Galil has obvious
advantages over the Uzi in that its bolt, fire control components and magazines are interchangeable
with those of the larger . Galils.

military sales in the USA. Basically, the
MP may be called an improved Uzi.
Main improvements over the Uzi are the redesigned blowback operated action, to be fired from the
closed bolt to increase accuracy, the lower receiver with a polymer handle, while the upper receiver
is made from stainless steel and the improved telescoping buttstock, which folds down when closed
(SS , Acc , HO -, and burst Rcl. rises to -). The MP features a three positions safety/fire selector
with safe, semi-automatic and full-automatic positions, as well as a separate firing pin block
to increase safety. The quickly detachable barrel is spring-loaded to cushion the impact of the bolt
on closure. The cocking handle is located at the top of the receiver.

C -5
19.576 mm Brass

In the early s the US


military started the CAWS
program (Close Assault
Weapon System). The main
goal of this program was to
develop a new generation of
personal firearms, capable of
firing high-impulse, multiple
projectiles with an eective
range of - meters. The usage of multiple projectiles should increase the chances of hitting the
target in combat. One of the teams that entered in the CAWS race, was German Heckler & Koch
together with Winchester/Olin (USA). H&K was responsible for developing the actual gun, while
Winchester/Olin were responsible for the development of new types of ammunition. The CAWS
is a select-fire, smoothbore weapon, designed to fire special, high-presure shotshells, loaded with
tungsten buckshot or flechettes. It uses a patented recoil-operated action with a moving barrel
and an additional self-regulated gas-assist system used to unlock the breechblock from the barrel
if low-power rounds are used. The main goal of this system was to decrease the felt recoil down to
a suitable level. The CAWS is somewhat similar in appearance to H&Ks G advanced assault rifle,
built in bull-pup configuration, with an integral carrying handle featuring a built-in scope with
magnification. The ambidextrous charging handle is located under the carrying handle at the top of
the receiver. The standard H&K-style safety-switch/fire selector has position: Safe, Semi-auto and
four-round bursts. The H&K CAWS was tested by the US Military, but the whole CAWS program
was closed, and the CAWS development frozen.The CAWS was never made available to the general
public, only prototypes may be found. The special high-power tungsten flechette ammunition is not
useable with normal shotguns and might be hard to obtain since it eectively has to be handcrafted.
Another special round for this weapon fires a high-power buckshot that is also not useable with
normal shotguns (Dmg. d, /D , Max. ). The CAWS may use normal shotgun ammunition,
however (Dmg. d, Acc. , /D , Max. , Rcl. -).

C -5
12 gauge

The Pancor Jackhammer


MkA is an automatic, gas-
operated, gauge shotgun
which uses a pre-loaded
rotating -round cylinder as
magazine. The cylinder has
grooves incised on its outer
surface which are engaged by
a stud on an operating rod,
using the rods oscillation
to rotate the cylinder; it is
very similar to the system of
cylinder rotation used by the
Webley-Fosbery automatic revolver. The barrel floats and is driven forward by the gas pressure after
the shot is fired. It is then returned by a spring by moving the cylinder operating rod. The significant
point about this barrel-movement is that it disconnects the barrel from the gas-tight connection
with the cylinder, allowing the cylinder to revolve to the next round, and then, on the return stroke,
to re-seal barrel and cylinder. The cylinder system allows the use of standard plastic gauge shells
without the problem of shot shells melting in the hot chamber and causing jams. The Jackhammer
has a progressive trigger and a cocking/decocking lever which can be operated silently. A majority
of this weapon and its ammo cassettes are made of Rynite plastic. The inline design and operating
system of the Jackhammer give it good control on full automatic fire. The Jackhammer never entered
full-scale production so it might be hard to find, except for several dozen prototypes.

ber shot, gas or flare rounds. A light and versatile weapon, it can be had with various stocks (in-
cluding a folding stock) or a pistol grip. The most common configuration for police purposes is a
shoulder stock/pistol grip combination for better control (similar to military rifles). The barrel is
threaded for use with chokes and recoil compensators. On the barrel are ghost-ring sights for open-
eyes aiming, rifle sights are also available. The Benelli M is chambered for Magnum rounds () but
can also fire normal . rounds (Rcl. -, Shots +). The M was marketed worldwide by H&K

A conventional pump-action
shotgun with a corrosion-
resistant finish and black syn-
thetic stock, the Winchester
Model Coastal Marine is
made to take the worst environments and still be ready for action. It is chambered for mm rounds
but also accepts mm cartridges (+ shots). The Ms bolt is a four lug rotary lock, similar to
the AR-s. It locks solidly into the chamber of the barrel and keeps pressure trapped in the barrel
through the peak of the firing cycle. Since the receiver does not have to withstand the pressure, and
so can be made from lighter material. It also allows the use of lighter plastic materials in the trigger
guard and some other internal parts. The Winchester is considered to be one of the smoothest
operating and easiest to handle shotguns available for civilians. Also available with a pistol grip in-
stead of a stock (Holdout -, SS, Acc , Rcl -).

The Benelli M Super is


developed in Italy by Benelli
Armi Spa., Urbino, and im-
ported in the USA by Heck-
ler & Koch. In early , US
AARDEC (Army Armament
Research and Development Center) awarded the contract for the XM Joint Service Combat
Shotgun to H&K. Technically, the Benelli M Super is a gas-operated (the first one for Benelli),
smoothbore, magazine fed, semi-automatic shotgun. Barrel locking is achieved by a rotating bolt
with two lugs. The M has dual gas cylinders, dual gas pistons and dual action rods for increased
reliability (called ARGO auto regulating gas operated). The M features an ambidextrous cross-
bolt safety button in front of the handguard. Low-power rounds, such as non-lethal rubber slugs or
rubber shot, may be cycled manually. The gun can be field stripped without any additional tools in
seconds. The telescopic stock may be replaced by a pistol grip or a hunting-style stock without tools.
The barrel has an internal screw-in choke system for increased versatility. Standard sights are ghost-
ring at the rear and blade sights at the front. At the top of the receiver a Picatinny rail is installed,
that accepts scopes, laser illuminators or night-vision sights. The M is designed so that it can fire
mm and mm shells of dierent power without any adjustments and in any combination. All
surfaces are covered by non-reflective, wear- and corrosion-resistant finish. The M is very reliable
in any weather conditions. It may be fired with the stock retracted (Rcl. -, HO -).

fles. For military/government
sales, the USAS- is marketed in the USA by RAMO Defense Systems. With its high capacity, quickly
changeable magazines of and rounds, the USAS- is designed to provide sustained firepower
in close combat scenarios (early USAS- models had -round box and -round drum magazines).
The magazines are made of ploymer, the drum magazines have a rear side made from transluscent
polymer for quick accounting of remaining shots. The USAS- is claimed to be highly accurate and
controllable, probably due to the balanced weight, the magazine located nearly at the center of mass
of the weapon. It can also deliver non-lethal and low-powered rounds with its pump-action mecha-
nism, which is selectable with no conversion necessary. Select-fire versions of the USAS-, capable
of fully-automatic fire are also available, albeit very expensive (RoF , Cost BC.

English double-barreled rifles, usually breech-loading. They were normally sold only in three places:
at the gunmakers in London, in the most exclusive and expensive sporting-goods stores in the major
cities of the civilized world and in Africa. The B C price-tag is definitely the bottom of the scale.
That is the price you would pay if you just happened to find one on the rack at the gunmakers to
suit you. The markup by sporting goods dealers was % or % minimum. A custom-ordered
weapon might cost only % over the listed price but the wait for delivery is at least one year. In
Africa it was sometimes possible to get a bargain in used guns, frequently because the owner had
made one mistake too many with a rhino or an elephant. More recent prices for a H&H . Double

reduced caliber. There were several models produced, the original rifle, modernized versions MkII,
MkIII and MkIV, a short carbine version, also in multiple models. The Martini-Henry was typical
of the heavy, breech-loading single-shot cartridge rifles of the late th century and it was a very
widespread gun; the British and Indian armies used it from until well into the th century and

tion for accuracy, that all but two members of the United States Rifle team chose the Remington. To
achieve the listed accuracy, it is loaded with a mixture of breech and muzzle loading. An unbulleted
cartridge with a precisely measured charge of powder is loaded in the breech. Then a bullet is loaded
from the muzzle with a false muzzle and bullet starter, and rammed home, very carefully and pre-
cisely, with a rod, to pre-engrave the rifling on the bullet. Loading from the breech with complete
cartridges halves accuracy and changes RoF to /.

tunately for a lot of soldiers, the US Army issued soft, copper-cased ammunition until the late s;

The Model Winchester


Rifle was probably the most
popular civilian rifle used on
the frontier of the American
west. More than half a mil-

favorite south of the border to the very end of production in . The Model is a cm-barreled

Winchester Model use . Henry rimfire ammunition (Dmg. d+l, Acc , /D , Max ).
The Henry Rifle (Shots +) has the same RoF as the Winchesters, but takes longer to reload; it did
not have a side loading-gate. The magazine tube has to be pulled out and loaded from the front.
This takes two seconds to pull out, one per round to load and one to close. It was a relatively delicate
weapon, especially the magazine. A Henry that is dropped or used as a club has a % chance of
being so damaged that it will need repair by an armourer. The had a side loading-gate; reloading

850 mm Lebel

The French Lebel


(also called the modle
dordonnance standard
issue model) was the first
smokeless powder military rifle, and one of very wide distribution. The Foreign Legion and the
Colonial Army used these in the French conquests in Africa and Asia. In accordance with French
ideas, it was a better bayonet platform than it was a rifle. The standard bayonet was a two-foot blade
that could only be used for thrusting; it had no eective cutting edge. Many variants existed; since
the French hate to throw anything away, older models were in use to the very end of the Lebels
service, sometime in the late s. (It was replaced as the Army issue rifle in , but continued
to be issued to police and reserve units for years.) The true Lebel has an eight-shot tubular
magazine; it can have one round in the chamber and one more on the cartridge carrier between
magazine and chamber, when fully loaded. Rifles were about . m long and carbines about . m
(Dmg. d+, /D , Max , Wt. ., Shots +). In , a commission redesigned the Lebel to
use a Mannlicher-style clip of three rounds. The new rifles were called Berthier, after the president
of the commission; most French soldiers continued to call them Lebel. The first issued were carbines
(stats as above except Shots ; Mannlicher-style clips do not allow an extra round in the chamber).
Rifles (as above except Shots ) were first issued in . In , another redesign increased shots to
for carbines and rifles. All three designs in both styles were in use at the same time.

for all of the th century. Many times, both sides in a given war were armed with Mausers. The
action was also the basis for most th-century hunting and target bolt-actions. As a sporting rifle
it was chambered in calibers from . rimfire to . Gibbs. Military rifles are normally clip-loaded;
sporting rifles usually are not. Among the calibers for which Mausers were chambered: . mm,
. British, . mm NATO, .-, .- and . Remington. The action was even used for
two-shot, bolt-action g shotguns. A shortened carbine version was available as the Mauser -K
(Dmg. d-, SS , Acc. , /D , Max. , HO -). A copy of the Mauser , the Springfield

to meet combat needs less demanding than the M Rifle, but more than can be met by the MA
pistol. The US government bought more than million of these carbines and the US military issued
them from WWII until well into the s and sold and gave them all over the world. Police and
prison guards used them extensively. They are especially popular in Asia and South America. The
German police in Bavaria and Hessia used a modified, more accurate, custom-stocked version (Acc

The Garand was distributed around the world after and might be encountered anywhere. It
uses an -round, Mannlicher-style clip, but can be used as a singleshot if no clips are available. A
few Garands were altered to use -shot box magazines; this was a custom job and required a very

as a standard sniper rifle. In fact, the main role of the SVD in the Soviet/Russian army is to
extend the eective range of every infantry squad to up to meters and to provide special fire
support. Every infantry squad in the Russian/Soviet army had one soldier with an SVD. The SVD is
lightweight and accurate, cabable of semi-automatic fire. First requests for a new sniper rifle were

. mm rounds, but the primary round is a sniper-grade cartridge with a steel-core bullet,
developed especially for the SVD. It is extremely reliable in all conditions, and designed for heavy
battles. The SVD features backup adjustable iron sights as a standard option, as well as a bayonet
mount (standard AK- type). The latest modernization incorporated a rugged polymer stock. Also,
for mounted and airborne troops, a variant with folding buttstock and shortened barrel ( mm)
was designed. Also, a new flash suppressor and muzzle brake was installed. The SVD is usually
fitted with the PSO- scope (a sophisticated design with limited passive IR capability, illuminated
reticle and a rangefinder good for m). All variants of the SVD passed many battle tests during
the Afghan war as well as many other local conflicts, including the latest Chechen wars. The SVD
was widely used and copied across the former Warshaw pact countries and is still in service with

mm steel plate at meters with their heavy bullets ( g) with hardened steel core. The VSS is
intended for use at short and medium distances up to meters with a scope (PSO-, same as the
SVD) or up to meters with night sight (IR). The noise level of the VSS is as low as dB, whis is
equivalent to the noise of . non-silenced rifle. The Vintorez was (and is) used in all local conflicts
the Russian army was involved in the last decade.

Introduced in , the
WA-, produced by
Carl Walther Waenfabrik,
Germany, is a highly sophis-
ticated sniper rifle. Unlike
many other sniper rifles of
that period, the WA- was
not a conversion of a sporting
or hunting rifle, but an entirely new design. It is a gas-operated semi-automatic bullpup rifle, with
a heavy free-floating barrel in a rigid frame. The barrel is fluted externally and lies in a straight line
with the shoulder to counter muzzle rise. Chambered for the . WinMag (according to Walther it
was the most accurate round commercially available), no detail has been overlooked in designing the
WA-: even the -round box magazine is designed to protect the rounds from scraping which
could aect accuracy. Usually oered with a Schmidt & Bender .- variable scope, the Walther
WA- is also fitted with a large muzzle brake and a folding bipod. However, the WA- is a bit
too sophisticated for combat use. Its heavy weight and need of constant tuning and careful handling
makes it more suitable for police, internal security and counterterrorism sniping than military duty,
which is why it is not in widespread use, in addition to its high price tag. The WA- is also
available in . mm NATO and . mm Swiss (both Dmg. d+).

The Galil sniper rifle, built by


Israeli Military Industries at
Ramat Ha Sharon (also called
the Galatz) has all the ad-
vantages and the disadvan-
tages of its father, the Galil
assault rifle, diering mainly in the shortened barrel ( cm) and a usually fitted scope. On the
one hand, it has superior dust protection and sand durability, and can stand almost any kind of
field handling as well as non-stop shooting of most types of . mm ammunition (even ammunition
which was originally intended for . mm light machine guns). Like the Galil AR, the Galatz also
has a folding stock which makes the weapon very comfortable for concealed carrying. On the other
hand, with only MOA . (Minute of Angle a measure for the grouping of shots; a rifle with an
MOA of . will shoot .>> groups at m, >> groups at m, etc.) it is a rather low accuracy
rifle, not only compared to bolt action sniper rifles but even compared to other semi-automatic rifles.
Its inherent low accuracy makes the Galatz unfit for close range pinpoint sniping like counter terror
scenarios. It is usually fitted with a scope.

The Heckler & Koch PSG-


(Przisionsschtzengewehr
precision marksman rifle)
is a special-purpose sniping
rifle based on the roller-
locked action of the H&K G.
This model is much modified, the original military barrel substituted by a mm heavy barrel
with polygonal rifling, a special butt-stock with cheek-plate, an adjustable trigger and a receiver
designed to accept all NATO STANAG claw mounts to accept a wide range of scopes. The PSG- was
originally fitted with a Hensoldt fixed-power scope with an illuminated reticle. As issued, it is a
semi-automatic single-shot weapon; the action holds one round, but ejects the case and locks the
action open after firing. Loading another round takes three turns. It is designed so that the bolt can
be closed silently, rather than slamming shut as with most semi-autos. Specially selected and fitted
barrels and actions are what provide the accuracy; abused rifles can lose accuracy easily. Dropping a
PSG-, or using it as a club or pry bar, will drop the accuracy by - to -. Optional magazines of five
or rounds are available (RoF , Shots + or +). Accuracy as listed is for the standard issue
Zeiss-Hensoldt scope; a scope is also common (+ Acc.). Firing without the tripod (or an
equivalent support) is - to Acc.

The MA sniper rifle is


based on the Remington
Model BDL Heavy Barrel
Varmint rifle. It is a heavy
barrel, bolt action, magazine
fed . mm rifle that is optimized for accuracy with match grade ammunition. The rifle is equipped
with a special Unertl sniper scope. This weapon is hand-made by specially trained and qualified
armourers at the Marine Corps Marksmanship Training Unit at Quantico, Virginia, USA. The
unique characteristics of the MA Sniper Rifle are the commercial competition-grade heavy
barrel, McMillan fiberglass stock and butt pad, modified Winchester Model floorplate and a
modified and lightened trigger. In addition, each stock is epoxy bedded for accuracy and all weapons
must shoot less than one minute of angle. The MA was put into service in the s to meet
the need of a long range sniper rifle. It lacks the adjustability of more modern sniper rifles but is
nonetheless highly accurate. With a special telescopic sight, the Acc. can be raised to , but this
scope is very fragile and not suitable for military use (+. kg., Cost + B

of pull. As the MAs rotate in for service and repair, they are replaced by MAs. All MAs are
built by USMC armorers at Quantico Virginia. The MA is an adequate replacement for the aging
MAs. The rifles are extremely accurate, very rugged, and are designed from the ground up to be
a superb sniper rifle. Combined with the new MLR ammo, it makes a system that is ranked with
the best in the world.

In the mid-s the Swedish


forces began their quest for
the new sniper rifle, that
could survive heavy nordic
environments. Accuracy In-
ternational become the winner in this race with an improved L design, named Arctic warfare.
In the Swedish army adopted the Artic Warfare rifle in . mm NATO chambering under the
designation of PSG-. The British army in its turn, also adopted this improved design under the
designation of LA, as well as many other militaries and law enforcement agencies around the
world. In , the Bundeswehr also adopted the folding-stock AW Super Magnum rifle chambered
in . Winchester magnum (. mm) as SG (Scharfschtzengewehr G sniper rifle G).
The Arctic Warfare as a modular weapon system able to fire many dierent rounds and able to be
equipped with several accessories such as silencers, scopes, etc. It is a zero-maintenance weapon with
a very low failure rate which led to the classification as a boring rifle by some shootists because there
is no need to re-calibrate the sights or fiddle with screws in the middle of the action. The aluminium
body is housed in reinforced nylon panels, which is why the gun was dubbed Arctic Warfare, be-
ing able to function even in the harshest climates. The Arctic Warfare Police, chambered with .
Rem, . Win and . Win calibers in a box magazine of shots, is equipped with a mm barrel
and without muzzle break. A military issue, the Arctic Warfare Magnum accepts . Winchester
und . Lapua rounds and is outfitted with a longer barrel and a recoil-reducing muzzle break. A
large caliber version with advanced recoil-suppression is also available. This AW is intended for
use against light vehicles and military equipment as the Geneva Conventions forbid the use of a .
caliber weapon against human targets. Also available in a civil hunting and sports version called AW
Varmint.

with the short -round magazine, the semi-automatic HK SG/ can only fire single shots. The
design was not too well accepted and production was stopped in , only two years after the initial
launch. The HKSG/ is nowadays rather dicult to find, due to the low numbers produced.

The MA Light Fifty,


produced by Barrett Firearms
Manufacturing, Murfrees-
boro, USA, is chambered
for the . machine-gun
cartridge. It is a heavy,
recoil-operated gun; the weight and the action tame the recoil to manageable proportions. To
further reduce the recoil load, the MA is fitted with a cone-shaped dual chamber muzzle brake
that gives the MA a characteristic look. The Barrett has an integral bipod; it can also be mounted
on machine-gun tripods and pintle-mounts. It is intended for long-range sniping, destruction
of soft-skinned vehicles and the occasional shot at a dinosaur. Additionally, the MA is used in
explosive ordnance disposal as a cheap and eective method to clear airstrips or other areas of mines.
Though accurate, the MA is not a true sniper rifle, due to too many moving parts and the lack
of match grade military . ammunition which leads to a sub-par MOA of about . The Barrett has
no iron sights; it is intended to be equipped with a scope, an scope is the usual outfit. The US
Marines adopted the Barrett MA as a special-purpose sniper weapon in and used some in
the Persian Gulf operation. A more compact bolt-action bullpup model, the Barret M, is available
since the late s and has been modified to be adopted by the US army as sniper rifle XM.

The AK (or Avtomat


Kalaxnikova Automat
Kalashnikov, after its de-
signer Mikhail Timofeyevich
Kalashnikov), in its various
models, is probably the most
numerous and most famous
weapon ever produced, mostly at the Izhmash factory in Izhevsk, Russia. It is rumoured to be
based on the German Sturmgewehr . All the variants of the Kalashnikov are similar in operation;
select-fire, gas-operated, magazine-fed, hammer-fired assault rifles. It has a fire selector/safety
switch with three positions (safe, automatic, single shots) located at the right side of the receiver.
The Kalashnikov features open iron sights, the front sight adjustable for windage and the rear
sight ajustable for elevation and marked in m distances from to meters. The sight
radius is too short, when compared to other assault rifles, such as the M. The stock and grip are
made of wood, a shortened variant of the original AK, called AKM, was intended for paratroopers
and features a folding metal buttstock. In the mid-s, the Russian Army began replacing its
. mm Kalashnikovs (AK- and AKM) with . mm weapons, the AK- and a short carbine
version, the AKS-U, which has a rather poor reputation among Russian law enforcment users.
The Kalashnikov is also made as a light machine-gun, the RPK. The AK- has a very eective
muzzlebrake, which reduces recoil, but also gives increased muzzle-flash. The Russians did not begin
exporting AKs until their own forces were completely equipped about . From that date on
AKs begin to show up all over the world. By , it would not be unusual to find an AK anywhere.
Black-market prices for AKs depend on circumstances. The usual price on the American criminal
market in the s was about B C. All versions of the AK are very reliable and rugged, with a
simple design and an overpowered gas system they are not likely to fail even under the harshest
battle conditions.

The FG- was developed in


, during WWII, for Ger-
man Fallschirmjger (para-
troopers, hence the name
FG) who lacked firepower
and needed supporting weapons during operations. Experiences with the carbine MK had been
disappointing and the a call for an automatic weapon firing a full-sized catridge was issued. A cross
between a light machine gun and an assault rifle, the gas-operated FG- could be fired single-shot
with a closed rifle bolt or fully automatic with an open bolt, which is important, because the rounds
can not be ignited by a hot barrel. The FG- was a rather ingenious design for its time whose devel-
opment would lead to the creation of the MP- and assault rifles as they are known today. Because
of the complex nature of the FG-, manufacturing the weapon was dicult. Only about FG-
were produced by Rheinmetall before the wars end. The clip is on the left of the receiver, and the
gun comes with a folding bipod and a spike-type bayonet (which folds back under the barrel when
not in use). The weapon uses a heavy muzzle brake and a recoil-spring sliding shoulder stock system
to achieve a manageable recoil for a weapon of its power. It was one of the first weapons to use a
shoulder stock in line with the barrel.

The MP- (later designated


StG-, short for Sturm-
gewehr assault rifle
) is known as the worlds
first assault rifle. Initial de-
velopment took place under
the designation of MKb.
(Maschinenkarabiner
machine carbine ). The ex-
perimental MKbs were developed by two german companies, Karl Walther (MKb.W) and
C. G. Haenel (MKb.H). Both guns were intended as a replacement for submachine guns, bolt ac-
tion rifles and, partly, light machineguns for front troops. Both guns were designed to fire inter-
mediate cartridges, and have eective range of about meters. After initial trials the MKb.H,
designed by Hugo Schmeisser, was found the superior of the two, and further development took place
under the name of MP- (Maschinenpistole machine pistol) to avoid Hitlers opposition to
anything not SMG. The trial batches performed so well in Russia that Hitler changed his mind and
even demanded a designation change to the Wagnerian Sturmgewehr, literally assault rifle. Final
versions of the new gun appeared under the designation of MP- which was later renamed to the
more familiar StG-. Total number of MP-s, MP-s and StG-s produced was about .
The StG. is a gas-operated, selective-fire weapon. The gun is fired from the closed bolt (unlike
the early Mkb.H). The MP- and further versions were hammer-fired while the MKb.H was
striker-fired. By modern standards the StG- is too heavy, it was not comfortable to fire from prone
positions, the butt attachment was not too strong and could be easily be damaged in hand-to-hand
combat, but it was the first gun of its class, and it was more eective than SMG for its intended use.

The AN-, also known as


the Nikonov after its de-
signer Gennady N. Nikonov
or the Abakan after the
town where most of the pro-
totypes were tested, is a new
Russian assault rifle produced
by Izhmash. It slightly resembles the AK- , but is dierent internally. The AN- can fire single
shots, -round bursts or fully automatic. It operates on what the Russians call Blow-Back Shifted
Pulse principle. It fires single shots normally, but when firing -round bursts it does so by firing
them at cyclic rate of rounds per minute and the bolt continues to move back during the burst
(instead of moving back and forth between every round). Only after firing both rounds in the burst
does the recoil aect the firer. When firing full automatic, the AN- fires the first two rounds like
explained above, and then slows to a cyclic rate of rpm. There is a clear pause before this slowing,
so even when the gun is set to full auto -round bursts can be easily fired. (treat the -round bursts
as single shots for recoil, but use burst rules to find out the number of hits). The AN- also has
an integral folding bayonet and its stock folds to the right (HO -, SS , Acc , Rcl - with stock
folded). Though formally accepted by the Russian armed forces, it is very doubtful that this AN-
will replace the good old AK- in mass service anytime soon. Additionally, financial problems
have limited its deployment. There is also a version chambered for . mm round (d+, Acc
, /D , Max ) designed to replace the . mm (which has a reputation as being rather
inaccurate). A power combat scope (+ Acc), similar to the British SUSAT, is available.

made and with a better fit-
ting stock than the Russian
designs. The stock folds to make it handier in vehicles and house-to-house fighting. The Galil fea-
tures an ambidextrous safety switch and standard magazines are , and rounds. One nice touch
is that the integral bipod can be used to cut barbed wire without dismounting it from the rifle. This is
handy; in the conditions in which Israel fights, massive wire obstacles are common. The AR denotes
the assault rifle version; the SAR is a shorter variant, which is more widely used than the full-sized
assault rifle. A submachine-gun, the Galil Micro AR is also available and features interchangeable
parts with the larger rifles. For the civilian market, IMI has also developed a semi-auto Galil in .

After WWII, the formation


of the NATO alliance led
to a program to standardize
small-arms ammunition; the
result was the . mm NATO
round for which Fabrique Nationale in Belgium had an excellent design already available, the FN
FAL (Fusil Automatique Leger light automatic rifle), which was technically the first assault rifle,
being designed in but was not produced until after the war. It was adopted by most of the non-
communist nations in the late s, used by the British in Malaya, the Australians in Vietnam and
by both sides in the Congo wars of the early s and the Falklands war of . Belgian-produced
weapons are selective fire; most British and British Commonwealth guns are semi-automatic only.
The FN FAL is gas-operated and fires from the closed-bolt position in both the semi- and fully-
automatic modes. It has an operator-adjustable gas regulator which works on the exhaust prin-
ciple. Under ideal conditions the major portion of the gas is passed through the regulator and out
into the air. This system helps to reduce recoil, but nonetheless the FN FAL has a reputation of being
rather uncontrollable under fully automatic fire, which is due to the full-sized rifle cartridge. Early
prototypes were chambered for the German . mm Kurz cartridge which would have been more
appropiate for an assault rifle.

The FA MAS (Fusil Automa-


tique, Manufacture dArmes
de St. Etienne automatic
rifle by arms manufacturing
in St. Etienne), manufactured
by GIAT (Groupement In-
dustriel des Armements Ter-
restres industrial group for
infantry weapons) at St. Eti-
enne, France, has already demonstrated itself to be an eective and generally well-conceived piece
of ordnance. First introduced in and subsequently modified, the FA MAS was adopted by the
French armed forces and placed into production in . The most noticeable feature of this design
is the lengthy integral carrying handle with sights mounted on it and the bullpup configuration. It
features a not so common delayed blowback action, a built-in folding bipod and, being a totally am-
bidextrous design, a cheekpiece that may be installed on both sides of the buttstock, along with the
extractor group, to enable the ejection of empty cases to the right or left side of the rifle (not recom-
mended under battle conditions due to the risk of losing small parts of the mechanism). The iron
sights are adjustable for elevation and aperture, a scope can be mounted inside the carrying handle.
The FA MAS is a select-fire firearm, the safety switch/selector is located inside the triggerguard and
has positions safe, single shot and automatic fire. An automatic fire mode selector (three round
bursts or fully-automatic) is located behind the magazine on the bottom side of the stock. The lat-
est variation of the FA MAS, the G, had its bipod replaced by conventional sling rings, its trigger
guard extended to cover the whole grip and the magazine was changed to accept NATO-standard
STANAG M-type box magazines, as well as the original FA MAS magazines. An M underbarrel
grenade launcher could be installed optionally on the original F variant. During the Desert Storm
campaign, the FA MAS proved itself as a durable and reliable weapon.

The M was originally de-


veloped as the AR- at Ar-
maLite, Geneso, USA, by Eu-
gene Stoner in the early s.
The AR- was a scaled-down
AR-, redesigned to fire the
new . Remington Catridge (which was later to become the . mm NATO round). When the US
army adopted the AR- under the designation of M in (after much confusion and many new
decisions), ArmaLite sold the design to Colt, where all further modifications were made. The M is
a gas-operated, selective-fire (full automatic or semi-automatic), self-loading rifle, feeding from de-
tachable - or -round box magazines. It features a flip aperture rear sight and a carrying handle
which gives the M its characteristic outline. The M was first used in south-east Asia, where it
became obvious that it was not really as maintenance-free as it was marketed. The direct-gas system
(no piston or bolt handle) was prone to failure, especially in the jungle environments of Vietnam.
There was no cleaning-kit supplied with the first Ms to even partly overcome this weakness. In ,
the design was improved and issued as the MA. Modifications were mostly the addition of a push-
button to close the bolt in case of a cartridge feed failure (a positive forward assist device) and some
other changes, a brass deflector to prevent spent cases from being ejected in the face of a left-handed
soldier and a new -round box magazine instead of the original -round one. In , the M was
modernised again, now into the MA. It now featured a heavier barrel with new rifling to accept
the new NATO standard cartridge SS with a heavier bullet (designed in Belgium by FN). This gave
the bullet fired from an MA a better trajectory and thus more accuracy. Another modification was
the addition of a -round burst setting to the fire selector. The sights were upgraded to dual-aperture
peep-hole sights with both elevation and windage adjustment and a new circular-crossshaped hand-
guard was installed instead of the old triangular-crosshaped one. The MA is a modified MA
that incorporates the same modular features as the M carbine, the integral carrying handle was
replaced by a Picatinny-Weaver rail system to accept dierent types of sight enhancements, such as
scope mounts or laser-aiming devices. The original handle with iron sights can also be installed. The
MA is identical to the MA, but can only fire single shots or -round bursts. Compact versions
of both the MA and the MA were developed: the MA Carbine with a cm or cm barrel
and a telescoping stock and the MA Commando, (also known as Colt Model ) with a cm
barrel, an A-type flash suppressor/muzzle compensator and a telescoping stock (both guns are HO
-, Acc. , Rcl. - for burst fire, when folded). Civilian hunting versions of the AR- is also avail-
able, manufactured by several companies, e.g. the Varminter from Bushmaster, fitted with a
variable scope, an adjustable trigger and a standard -round magazine.

The G by Heckler & Koch,


Germany, has its roots in the
Stgw. (Sturmgewehr
assault rifle ), designed in
Germany by Mauser at the
end of WW. After the war in
ca. , this design with a roller-delayed blowback action was further improved in Spain by the
CETME (Centro de Estudios Tecnicos de Materiales Especiales center for technical studies on
special materials) for the new Spanish service rifle. CETME assembled a team which included for-
mer Mauser engineers and in , the Spanish government contracted H&K to adapt the CETME
rifle to the new NATO caliber . mm. After about another five years of development, the West
German army adopted the new rifle in , and gave it its new name, G (Gewehr rifle )
replacing the FN FAL. As many as nations have adopted the G as their standard infantry arm
since then. Several variants of the G exist, in , the GA was produced with a folding stock and
flip-over iron sights. The GA was an improved version with a fixed polymer stock instead of the
wooden one of the original G and drum-type rear sights. The GA and GA were both modified
with a retractable stock. Carbine variants with short . cm barrels instead of the usual cm barrels
have also been produced as GK, GKA, GKA and GKA. A civilian semi-automatic-only ver-
sion is oered as HK, mainly for import in the USA. -round magazines are also available for the
G family.

The HK was developed by


Heckler & Koch, Germany in
the late s as a scaled-
down version of their G bat-
tle rifle, and entered produc-
tion in . It was developed
for the then-new . mm cartridge, and while the HK was not adopted by the German mil-
itary, it saw significant use by German police and security units, and was also widely exported and
used by the Malaysian, Chilean and Thai armed forces. The HK is a selective fire rifle with the usual
H&K delayed blowback action. It is available with either a polymer fixed buttstock (HKA) or a
retractable metal buttstock (HKA, HO -, SS , Acc , Rcl - when folded). Carbine versions of
the HK that feature shorter barrels ( mm instead of mm for the HK) and similar fixed or
retractable stocks are also available (HKKA and HKKA, respectively). All HK variants are
available with dierent trigger units, either with or without the -round burst limiter. The propri-
etary claw-type mount allow telescopic sights to be mounted, full-length HKs can be equipped with
a bayonet or H&Ks mm underbarrel grenade launchers HKA. Alternatively, rifle grenades can
be fired from a combined muzzle compensator/flash suppressor. H&K also produced a . mm
variant, the HK which did not sell and is no longer in production. The HK is a short-barreled,
sliding stock version of the HK ( mm) that is marketed as an SMG by H&K (HO -, SS , Acc.
, Rcl - when stock is folded). It is internally similar to the HK but cannot fire rifle grenades nor
mount underbarrel accessories or bayonets. All HK and HK variants are equipped with drum-
type rear sights and accept the same , or round box magazines.

The G assault rifle had


been developed by Heckler &
Koch, Germany in early the
s from based on the HK
as a companion to the G.
While the caseless G was to
be issued to front line troops,
the G was intended for sec-
ond line troops. After the G program collapsed due to financial and political reasons in the early
s, the G was oered to many customers but due to the steep price found no sales, regardless of
the high quality, and was cancelled in . Basically, the G is a further development of the early G
rifle, featuring the same roller-delayed blowback action, but chambered for . mm NATO ammu-
nition. It also featured the standard --- trigger group (safe, single shot, -round burst and fully
automatic). The G accepts STANAG compatible magazines and scope mounts and sports a silent
bolt closure mechanism (similar to the forward assist device on the MA and MA), an integral
dust cover on the ejection port and an integral side-folding carrying handle. The G is available with
either a fixed polymer butt or telesopic butt (HO -, SS , Acc and Rcl - when folded). Underbar-
rel accessories for the HK can be used with the G, a model with the HK grenade launcher is
available as the GTGS (Tactical Group Support) with an add on ladder grenade sight. A slightly
shorter carbine version, the GK, is usually fitted with a retractable stock (HO -, SS , Acc , Rcl -
when folded) and cannot launch rifle grenades or use other standard accessories.

The Heckler & Koch G as-


sault rifle was developed as
the HK project in the early
s. It was adopted in
by the Bundeswehr and the
Spanish army as its standard
service rifle. Additionally, the
G is used by the British police and several US law enforcement agencies as well. The G is a depar-
ture from previous assault rifles designed by H&K. While all early H&K rifles were delayed blowback
designs, the G is a gas operated weapon, with a rotating bolt locking into the barrel extension, a
design similar to the Armalite AR-. The polymer receiver is reinforced with steel inlets, the trigger
unit, which is available with or without a -round burst limiter, is contained inside the pistol grip.
The G has very user-friendly and ergonomic controls, plus it is completely ambidextrous. It is eas-
ily field-stripped without any tools other than a single cartridge to push the pins. The G is fed from
STANAG-compatible -rounds polymer magazines with translucent walls. The standard magazines
have built-in clips to connect magazines to one another for faster reloading. The plastic buttstock is
side-folding (HO -, SS , Acc Rcl - when folded). On the top of the receiver is a large carrying
handle with built-in sights: the standard G has a dual sights system a . compact scope is cou-
pled to a non-magnifying red-dot sight for faster target acquisition on short distances, no iron sights.
The export versions, GE, and the carbine version, GK, only have a . power scope. The G
has muzzle brake that can launch rifle grenades and can be equipped with a bayonet or the mm
underbarrel grenade launcher HK. A SMG-sized GC (Commando) with a mm barrel, as
well as a semi-automatic law-enforcement version is also available. The G is a very reliable rifle
even without daily cleaning.

The development of the G


rifle was started by Heckler &
Koch in the late s, when
the German army decided to
replace the existing G rifle
with lighter weapons. The
initial studies lead to the idea
of a small-caliber, rapid-fire
rifle, firing caseless ammuni-
tion. The new design, called G, was created together with Dynamit Nobel, Germany, being respon-
sible for the new cartridge. The basic concept of the G is a unique rotating cylinder breech/chamber
system. The cartridges are located above the barrel, bullets down. Prior to each shot, the first car-
tridge is pushed down from the magazine into the chamber and then the breech/chamber rotates by
to align the cartridge with the barrel. After firing the round, the chamber rotates back, ready for
the next cartridge to be chambered. The breech can be manually cocked by the rotating handle at the
side of the rifle, behind the pistol handle. The barrel, the rotating breech, the feed module and the
magazine are mounted movable in the housing which leads to reduced recoil when firing single shots
or fully automatic ( rpm). When firing -round bursts at rpm, the mechanism will move
backwards and only after the last round leaves the barrel, the recoil is felt (treat the -round bursts
as single shots but use burst fire rules to determine hits). This basic design concept is used as the
BBSP system in the Russian AN-. The G features a built-in optical sight with a simple aiming
reticule. It accepts special round polymer magazines, in addition to the one loaded, the G carries
two spare magazines on top of the rifle. In the late s the Bundeswehr began field-testing the
pre-production Gs. After the initial tests, some improvements were made, such as the removable
optical sight, the mounting of two spare magazines on the rifle, and a bayonet/bipod mount under
the muzzle. In , a slightly modfified G was tested by the US army as part of the ACR (Advanced
Combat Rifle) program which has now become the OICW program. Due to the German re-union,
there was a lack of funds and the whole G program was cancelled in .

The AUG (Armee Universal


Gewehr universal army ri-
fle) was developed by Steyr-
Mannlicher, Austria in the
early s and production
began in . It was imme-
diately adopted by the Aus-
trian army as Stg. (Sturm-
gewehr assault rifle ),
and later by the Australian, New Zealandian, Malaysian, Saudi Arabian, Irish and other armed forces,
as well as by the US coastal guard and several other law enforcement agencies. The AUG was de-
signed with versatility in mind, its key features are interchangeable barrels of dierent lenghts and
an ambidextrous design (with partial disassembly of the weapon). It has a very distinctive silhou-
ette; a bullpup action with the chamber and magazine behind the trigger, a trigger guard so big that
the whole hand fits into it and a back-raked carrying handle with a built-in . low-magnification
scope, which allows easier sight engagement since front and rear sights do not have to be aligned.
The AUG uses a conventional gas-powered action with a rotating bolt. The hammer group is located
in the buttstock and made almost entirely out of polymers, including the hammer itself. The barrel
may be removed and re-installed within seconds, even when hot, as the front grip can be used as a
barrel handle, factory-produced barrels from cm are available, cm is standard (Dmg. d-
for cm, d- for cm, d+, Acc. , HO - for the cm barrel). Military AUGs may be fired in
single-shot or in fully-automatic modes with dierent trigger pulls a short pull results in a single
shot, while a long pull results in fully-automatic fire. The safety is located above the triggerguard.
A modification of the AUG, the AUG A, was introduced in , featuring a redesigned cocking
handle and a new sight rail that allows quick removal of the standard sight and installation of any
STANAG-compatible sight mounts. A -round magazine is available for all variants.

The SIG SG- had been


developed by Swiss SIG
(Schweizerische Industrie-
Gesellschaft) in the mid-
s and was suqbsequently
licensed to Manurhin,
France, and FAMAE, Chile,
for export to avoid the strict Swiss export laws. It was adopted by the French (who replaced it with
the FA MAS in the early s), Portuguese and Chilean armies as their standard issue rifles, as well
as several smaller African and South-American countries. Early prototypes of the SG- (called
SG-) were built with a type of roller-locked acrion but to make the rifle chaper and more reliable
this was later changed to the gas-operated action with a gas piston attached to the bolt carrier.
The trigger unit has a safety switch/fire selector on the left side of the receiver with settings for safety,
semi-automatic and fully-automatic fire. An additional limiter to allow three-round bursts can be
installed in the trigger mechanism. The rear iron sights are drum-type. The SG- has a muzzle
break of NATO-standard diameter to allow the launching of rifle grenades from the muzzle. It has an
integral folding bipod under the handguard, and can be issued with either a fixed plastic buttstock
or a side-folding tubular metallic buttstock (HO -, SS , Acc , Rcl - when folded).
The SG- is a carbine version of the SG- that cannot mount the bipod or launch rifle grenades,
but is usually fitted with a folding stock (HO -, SS , Acc , Rcl - when folded). Both the
SG- and the SG- use the same - or -round magazines. The SG- is a larger battle rifle
chambered for the . mm cartridge. Otherwise similar to the SG-, the SG- can also be
fitted with a folding stock (HO -, SS , Acc , Rcl - when folded).

The SG- assault rifle has


been developed by Swiss SIG
as a competitor for the Swiss
army assault rifle contest in
. It was developed
as a successor to the SG-
and was adopted by the Swiss amry in , designated Stgw., but due to financial reasons, mass
production began in .
Basically, the SG- is a gas-operated rifle with a gas piston attached to the bolt carrier. It features a
muzzle break which can be adjusted to fire rifle grenades, an integral folding bipod under the hand-
guard, a bayonet, and a side-folding, skeleton-type polymer buttstock (HO -, SS , Acc , Rcl -
when folded). The trigger unit has a safety switch/fire selector on the left side of the receiver with
settings for safety, semi-automatic and fully-automatic fire. An additional limiter module to allow
three-round bursts can be installed in the trigger mechanism. The SG- can be fitted with a pro-
prietary, quickly detachable scope mount. The Swiss Stgw. are mostly fitted with a fixed power
scope, export versions are equipped with commercial scope sights, red-dot sights or ACOG sights
(Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight an open-eye, reflex-dot aiming system), depending on cus-
tomer preferences.
A carbine version with a shorter barrel ( mm instead of mm) is available as the SG-, a
shorter version, called the SG- SWAT, is intended for law enforcement and is equipped with aces-
sory rails on the forearm and comes with Trijicon ACOG optical sights and a cheekpad on the folding
buttstock (HO -, SS , Acc , Rcl - when folded). The SG- Commando is an SG- with an
even shorter barrel and a partly redesigned action due to the short length.
All SG-x rifles are equipped with translucent plastic magazines that can be clamped toghether for
faster reloading. Civilian verions of the SG- and SG- are known as Stgw. PE in Switzerland
or -SP and -SP when sold for export.

The development of the


SA system, which includes
the L-IW (Individual
Weapon) assault rifle
and the L light support
weapon) began in the late
s at state-owned Enfield
Royal Small Arms Factory,
Great Britain, when the
British army decided to
develop a new rifle that was to replace the . mm L SLR (Self-Loading Rifle) in . Early
prototypes, called XL, were chambered for a necked-down . mm cartridge with a . mm
bullet, strongly resembling a bullpup version of the Armalite AR-. After the Belgian . mm
cartridge was accepted as NATO standard, the XL was rechambered and developed further. Due
to the Falkland war, the new weapon was introduced and adopted by the British army several years
later, in .
The SA- is a gas operated, selective fire weapon, with a gas-powered piston and an AR--style
bolt carrier. The SA accepts STANAG-compatible magazines and comes equipped with a fixed
power SUSAT (Sight Unit Small Arms Trilux) scope, as well as iron sights, a bayonet mount and
a grenade launcher mount. The assault rifle version and the support weapon variant of the SA-
underwent several improvements and modifications.
The LA features a strengthened receiver and multiple smaller changes to the overall reliability and
material quality, as the original was of dubious quality, especially the polymer stock. The LA is a
recent modification, made by Heckler & Koch to rid the L of its constant jamming and misfiring
problems by introducing a new all-metal magazine, gas system and action mechanism. Initial
reports from the Afghanistan war reports the LA as more accurate and reliable than before (Acc.
, Malf crit.).

The AR- was designed by


Eugene Stoner at Armalite,
USA, in as an inexpen-
sive competitor to the M-.
It is gas-operated but features
a gas piston, which is more re-
liable than the direct gas system of the M-, especially in adverse conditions. The AR- is a select-
fire weapon, civilian semi-automatic-only versions are available as AR- (RoF ). The AR- was
not adopted in any larger scale and even though the design was said to be excellent, it was sold to
HOWA Machinery, Japan and Sterling Armament, Great Britain. The lack of a recoil dampener al-
lowed the mounting of a side-folding buttstock (HO -, SS , Acc , Rcl - when folded) and the
AR- accepts -, - and -round magazines. Armalite is currently updating the design with new
receiver and trigger groups similar to those of the AR-. This will give to the new rifle partial parts
interchangeability with other AR--style rifles, as well as the ability to use STANAG-compatible
magazines. A nearly identical version called SAR is manufactured by Chartered Industries of
Singapore and used by the Singaporean and the Croatian armies.

The AR / family was de-


veloped by Beretta SpA, Italy
in the late s when the Ital-
ian army decided to follow
the trend towards small-bore
assult rifles. The AR / is
a gas-operated selective-fire rifle, which borrows from earlier, proven designs. Its action mechanism
resembles that of the AK- and the receiver design is similar to the FN FALs. The gas system has
two operating modes, for normal usage and for adverse environmental conditions, which require a
higher-powered gas pressure and the gas vent can also be closed completely for firing rifle grenades.
The magazine release and the safety/fire selector switch (which features three settings for safe, single-
shot and fully-automatic fire, optionally, a three-round limiter is available) are fully ambidextrous.
The standard iron sights are dual aperture sights with settings for and meters range, ad-
justable for windage and elevation. The optional carrying handle features a three-dot quick aiming
system, standard STANAG sights can be installed instead of the quick-release handle. A bayonet and
a muzzle break can also be mounted.
A carbine variant with a polymer skeletal-type folding stock (HO -, SS , Acc , Rcl. - when
folded), which is otherwise identical is avaiable as SC /. A short carbine, intended for airborne
and armoured troops, with a reduced barrel length of mm (instead of mm on the longer
models) is called the SCP /. It features the same folding butt stock as the SC / (HO -, SS
, Acc , Rcl. - when folded) and is equipped with a flash hider, which can be quickly replaced by a
grenade launcher. A civilian version, the AR / S, is produced and accepts a five-round magazine
only and fires semi-automatically.

Germany. The Model B was licensed by Heckler & Koch and turned into their G rifle. In the mid-
s, CETME began work at a smaller-caliber version of the basic rifle, initially called Model E.
Development was completed in , when the first prototype of the Model L, chambered for the
. mm cartridge was produced. It was adopted by the Spanish army and rendered obsolete by the
adoption of the H&K GE assault rifle. The Model L is a delayed blowback operated, selective-fire
assault rifle which is similar in design to the HK. It features simple fixed leaf-type sights with aper-
tures for and m, accepts M--type magazines. The CETME Model LC is the carbine variant
with a folding butt-stock (SS , Acc , Rcl -, HO - when folded) and a shorter barrel length of
mm (instead of mm on the full-size rifle).

The Advanced Combat Ri-


fle by Steyr-Mannlicher, Aus-
tria, was a contestant in the
ACR program started by the
US army in the early s,
which strove for a % hit
improvement over the age-
ing M. Steyrs ACR uses
a flchette round (literally
small dart), a concept which is used in large-bore cannons and which was adopted for small arms
in the s but found to be inadequate at that time. The platic flchette cartridge has a nominal
caliber of . mm which totally encloses the flchette, that is . mm in diameter, mm long and
weighs . g. The flchette itself is partly surrounded by the discarding plastic sabot, which helps to
accelerate the dart to approximately m/s ( m/s at meters). The ACR as basically a bullpup
rifle, which is gas-operated and sports a horizontally as well as vertically moving breech block in-
stead of the common linear-moving bolt, and the spent cartridges are forced out of the ejection port,
by the next round. Initial stabilization is given to the flchette by a slow rifling, while the dart is
in flight, its fins provide a stable trajectory. The ACR is fully ambidextrous, which is unusual for a
bullpup design, as the ejection port is located at the bottom of the rifle. The action is enclosed in a
streamlined polymer housing similar to that of the Steyr AUG with an enclosed pistol grip and a large
ventilated upper rib. It features a carrying handle that is almost extended to the muzzle, an optical
sight can be installed on that handle, fixed sights are built into the handle for quick target acquisition,
a fixed power . scope is standard. The Steyr ACR accepts -round translucent magazines, which
are located at the very back of the rifle, due to the complex action. It can only fire single shots and
three-round bursts, no fully-automatic mode is available.
The Steyr ACR proved to be a well-designed rifle, delivering good accuracy, armor-piercing capa-
bility and ruggedness, but was nonetheless plagued by pre-production flaws like an uncontrollable
amount of gas pressure in the chamber. It did not fulfill the given requirements for the test program
and was subsequently cancelled, while only a a few dozen prototypes remain.

The Sako M-, originally de-


veloped by state-owned Val-
met and Sako, both Finland,
together (now merged under
the name of Sako) is based
on the s Valmet M- and
was developed not as a re-
placement but as an addition, and is currently being issued to the Finnish army, designated Rk..
It is mainly in use with front-line infantry and special units (Utti Light Infantry and the Helsinki
Guards Jger Regiment). The M- is a select-fire, gas-operated rifle, which uses a rotating bolt. It
features a folding, steletal-type stock (HO -, SS , Acc , Rcl - when folded), a muzzle flash sup-
pressor, an enlarged trigger guard to enable usage with gloves and may be fitted with a reflex sound
dampener. The sights are a hooded post front sight and a rear aperture sight, both with white-dot
low-light capability. Scopes or other optical sights can be also installed. The gas system can be closed
to fire rifle grenades. A civilian semi-automatic (RoF ) version, the M-S, is available without the
folding stock, but is otherwise identical.

The Valmet M- is the


standard-issue rifle of the
Finnish Defense Force (des-
ignated Rk.) and was
developed by Valmet in the
late s as an updated
version of the Russian AK-.
It is a select-fire, gas-operated rifle with the typical Kalashnikov action mechanism. It features
fixed aperture iron sights and a three-prong muzzle flash hider. There were several variants of
the basic M-, including export versions chambered for . mm and . mm (the latter
in semi-automatic only). A lighter variant with a stamped steel receiver and dierent butt stock
options is called the M- (M-W, fixed wooden stock, M-P, fixed polymer stock, M-TP,
tubular folding stock, HO -, SS , Acc , Rcl - when folded). The M- accepts AK--style metal
magazines or the newer polymer magazines. All versions are of very high quality and are able to
withstand the harsh climates of northern Europe.
