Has anyone ever ID'd any of the guns on Jayne's gun rack?

Big black and gray one at the bottom...
It looks like a G36 SL9 SWAT Sniper Rifle

They mostly look like paintball and airsoft guns to me.

Some of these guns are identified on http://www.imfdb.org/index.php/Firefly. I can't believe I forgot about this site!

Also, it looks like many of them were used in more than one episode.

Hey Keelhauler, could you repost those pics? I need to find a screencap of the bulkhead after they pull the cloth aside.

Done. I may have some other screencaps too, if you need more.

Thanks! That should work. Does the mesh look like "chicken wire" but with smaller holes?

On second thought, one of the small pics, it looks like the mesh has some depth to it. HMMMM.... strange.

I think the mesh is the same stuff they used on the cargo bay walls. Check out the scene in the pilot were they stow the crates.

I bet you that wall surface started life as nonskid floor pads.
Maybe the sort that let spills drain away from your feet.
(Hence the depth to those holes)

We used some plastic honeycomb pieces like that to make laminate wall panels.

Hey All,

I'm pretty sure it's expanded paper. I used to work in the garage door industry, and they used it in hollow core masonite doors all the time. It's also in hollow core doors for your home. If you look real close sometimes, you can see that the matrix isn't perfect, sometimes it sticks or tears and comes out kinda funny looking. Here is Rocco Passionino's picture of the cargo bay wall, the original is to big to post here, but here is the link:

http://www.roccopassionino.com/Images/photos/2002/2002.03.01.Firefly/DSCN0306.JPG

In the upper right you can see some paint from the cargo bay "dividers". You can also see some "weirdness" in the matrix. It comes in quite a few sizes, the stuff we worked with in the garage door industry was one inch thick. The holes were about the same width, give or take just a smidge. You can also see this stuff in the passenger lounge, sick bay, cockpit, the galley lounge, aft hallway, engine room, and of course, the crew quarters. It's my opinion that it's all the same stuff. I think they painted the plywood set walls grey, and sprayed glued on the walls and left the expanded paper it's natural color (which is a card board brown-ish color).

I was recently at a wedding reception. In the Reception Hall's closet there was a table that was damaged. You could see expanded paper inside the table. It was about half to three quarters of an inch thick. The stuff is everywhere if you're looking for it.
