* The Podbyrin from ''Film/RedHeat'' which is an IMI Desert Eagle, although (ostensibly) made in the Soviet Union and features rifle barrel instead of gun barrel.

** ''VideoGame/FarCry5'' continues the trend. The "A-99" (actually a Tec-9) and "MS16" from Far Cry 4 make a return, the MAC-10 takes up the "SMG-11" name it was also given in Rainbow Six Siege, the .50 caliber "MBP .50" and "SA-50" are a Desert Tactical HTI and a GM6 Lynx respectively, and the "AR-C" is a strange fictional full-auto hybrid of an ACR and an AR-15.

** Alternatively, to make a budget version of a weapon as a variant. By stripping a few features that are cosmetic or else convenient but unessential, a mechanically equivalent weapon from the same manufacturer can sell for a significant fraction less than the original. Budget conscious consumers will buy one, whereas those with money to burn or connoisseurs will grab the other. Either way, more sales.

* Many of the weapons in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' films are just real weapons with bits glued on. This is most apparent in the Original Trilogy, with the Stormtroopers' staple E-11 blaster rifles being modified Sterling Mk IV submachine guns. Han's trademark DL-44 blaster combines parts from an antique Mauser and an MG 81 machine gun with extra "greeblies" glued on to enhance the aesthetic.

** The original game zigzags with this trope. About half the weapons in the game avert this - the [=MP5=], P90, OICW and Jackhammer go by their real names. Others go for generic names - the Accuracy International is simply the "Sniper Rifle", the M249 the "Machine Gun", and the fictional, M202-inspired rocket launcher is the "Rocket Launcher" (in the ''Classic'' UpdatedRerelease, the rocket launcher is instead the "RLX-9157", after text printed on the original game's model). A few more go for ''almost''-correct names, such as the Colt Model 727 referred to as the newer M4, and the G36 with [=AG36=] grenade launcher named after the launcher rather than the rifle. The only fictional name in the original release is the Desert Eagle, here called the "Falcon 357".

** The follow up game, ''007 Legends'', uses the same naming scheme as the ''[=GoldenEye=]'' remake - the P99, [=WA2000=], and AK retain their names, all the guns returning from ''[=GoldenEye=]'' keep the fake names they had there, while all the new guns - even Walther's older PPK, which is now the "Bennetti [=TC32=]" - have new fake names like the "STK-21 Commando" (AUG), "Tec-Fire [=RF30=]" (Kel-Tec PMR-30), "Faroh M55" (M14), and, as a CallBack to classic ''[=GoldenEye=]'', the "KL-033 [=Mk2=]" (Skorpion).

** ''Perfect Dark Zero'' flips things around, with fewer totally-fictional sci-fi guns and more real-world ones with new names, such as the P9-P (Walther P99), DW-P5 (H&K [=MP5=]), the new (old?) Superdragon (modified H&K [=G36K=] with an [=AG36=] grenade launcher), and FAC-16 (Colt Model 727 with M203 grenade launcher); even its Plasma Rifle looks like a FAMAS G1 with a few [=LEDs=] stuck on it. Oddly, the M60 machine gun keeps its real-life name (alongside [[AbnormalAmmo the ability to launch caltrops]]).

* The ''VideoGame/BallisticWeapons'' mod for ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament2004'' does this for several weapons. Some have noticeable changes, like the M46 assault rifle bearing some resemblance to an AR-15 derivative mashed together with the barrel assembly of an FN SCAR, the [=XK2=] submachine gun resembling an [=MP5=] with an ambidextrous charging handle and ejection port, or the D49 revolver being a Colt Anaconda with a second barrel in place of the guide rod; others don't even really bother, like the M50 assault rifle being a straight M4 with M203

* Done in the ''VideoGame/BallisticWeapons'' mod for ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament2004'': the occasional real-world firearm is in the mod, under a name that may or may not be similar to its actual name -- an M4 with grenade launcher named the "M50", for example.
* A form in the ''VideoGame/RainbowSix'' games -- while the weapons' model names/numbers are kept, as of ''Rogue Spear''[='=]s "Black Arrow" expansion, references to their manufacturers are removed (with the exception of some logos on the guns themselves). The sole exception is the Five-Seven in ''Rainbow Six 3'', which (along with featuring an external hammer the real gun doesn't have) is called the "AP Army". The [=XM8=] in the ''Vegas'' games also dropped the X from its name, implying it was successfully adopted in the ''Rainbow Six'' universe.

''[[VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege Siege]]'' mostly continues this, though the occasional fake name from other, contemporary Ubisoft releases sneaks in, from the MAC-11 being redubbed the "SMG-11" to a hybrid of several over/under shotgun designs being named the "BOSG.12.2"; other cases are {{misidentif|iedWeapons}}ying one gun as a different version of the same, such as the Spetsnaz operators' PM being referred to as the newer double-stacked PMM.
