"Alternate" Uses
The Morita rifle never looked so good...
Actual Weapons
Dave Uhe from Tucson, AZ writes,
"For your readers who might be interested...

After looking at the pictures on this page, looks like the full size Morita rifle was made using a Ruger AC-556 and an Ithaca 37 short barrel shotgun.

The Ruger AC-556 was a full auto version of the Mini-14 rifle marketed mostly to police departments during the 1980's. Easy to identify, by the receiver picture and the magazine. The shotgun is an Ithaca Model 37 with short barrel. Notice the angled metal projection in front of the magazine tube, just below the barrel.

Enclosed pictures of the real firearms, from the and websites.

Lastly, a 3rd party vendor called MWG makes a plastic clamshell stock for the Mini14 called the Muzzlite Bullpup stock. Somewhat similar look to the fleet Morita carbine, used in the film Total Recall. Regards,"

Detail of the clip.

Statistics on the ammunition were never established,
(but a hex-wrench jammed into a Mini-14 brass is a good guess).

A real military flash suppresser was used on the firing Moritas.
