I've wondered about that myself. All I know is, they were cool. Did any survive?

If you watch the whole series of 26 episodes, you'll know as much as anyone else on here.

No visible magazines or ejected cartridge casings. But there is a muzzle flash. The rifle appears to site through the barrel. Both SHADO and the Alien weapons could be chemically powered LASER weapons.

No, because they mention the projectiles in episodes...one episode they analyzed an alien bullet.

In answer to Ham's question 'did any survive?' I know at least one SHADO rifle did for as it turned up in a bond film (Spy who loved me or Moonraker) in the background of a Q's lab scene. I posted a thread and pics of it recently on this board.
