* ''Film/WarDogs'' curiously uses this for one single model: the Brazilian copy of the Beretta 92 pistol, Taurus [=PT99=], is called "Corvis [=TP19=]".

* The original ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' games for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation (as well as ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica'') featured plenty of real firearms such as Berettas, Colt revolvers, Remington shotguns among other. Once the series started being released on the [=GameCube=], Capcom decided to use generic names for the weapons: the Beretta was replaced by a custom version called the [[BlingBlingBang Samurai Edge]] (previously introduced in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis''), while the Colt Python was renamed the "Silver Serpent". A few of the weapons in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' are named after real weapons, such as the TMP, the Red 9 (a 9mm variant of the Mauser [=C96=]) and the Chicago Typewriter (one of many nicknames for the Thompson submachine gun). And then, just to make things interesting, they'll sometimes randomly throw in a fictional gun made up of real gun parts into the mix, like Leon's Silver Ghost. ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'' used real names for its guns, besides the fictional ones and the very notable exception of the "Lightning Hawk" (obviously a Desert Eagle), but then ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'' went back to solely using fake names.

* The ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters'' series uses both AKA 47 names and real gun names in about equal measure. You can shoot someone with a Luger pistol in ''[=TimeSplitters=] 2'', but the AK-47 is referred to as the "Soviet S-47". In ''Future Perfect'', they drop the real names -- the Lugers are Krugers, and the S-47 is the Soviet Rifle. Most of the weapons have generic names -- Shotgun, Pistol 9mm, etc.

* ''VideoGame/FarCry2'' plays with this. It mostly gives its weapons real names (with the exception of a Desert Eagle called the "Eagle.50"), but the manufacturer names are generally not the real-life makers of each gun. Some are marked as having been made by "Precision Armaments", a corporation known for making cheap knock-offs.

** In all of the EA 007 games they used fake names that were ridiculously close to the real ones, particularly the "Wolfram [=P2K=]" (for the Walther PPK or [=P99=]), with weapons that share manufacturers in the real world sharing fake ones in the game (H&K weapons were all labeled "Deutsche" in ''VideoGame/TheWorldIsNotEnough'', then they were all "Koffler & Stock" in ''VideoGame/AgentUnderFire''). The Desert Eagle was also a frequent offender, as even between ''two different versions of the same game'' it was given a different name - it was the "IAC Defender" in the [=PS1=] version of the ''World is Not Enough'' game, and the "Raptor Magnum" in the N64 version.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Crysis}}'' the Korean FY-71 is a reference to the family of painfully-obvious AK-47 knockoffs produced by countries like China; in this case, though, the FY-71 is an obvious knockoff of the Russian AK-74M reverse-engineered by a fictional North Korean arms manufacturer called Bauer & Kopka (whose name is a parody of the real life German arms manufacturer Heckler & Koch). To a lesser extent we also have the FELINE, which smacks more than a little of the similarly-named FELIN version of the FAMAS.

* In ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'', Roland carries a pair of revolvers from another universe which are implied to be the direct equivalent of a real firearm from our world, but the text avoids specifying which one. Based on the details given, the guns are a perfect match for the Colt New Service (double-action, swing-out cylinders, and chambered in .45 long colt) but they're just called the Sandalwood Guns because of their grips, which are [[CaptainObvious made of sandalwood]].
