Quick & dirty conversions using notes posted by Regeta & Hitcher. You'll need Arsenal for most of it, as the weapons usually have rules above and beyond the statline.

Any suggestions - especially on prices - would be appreciated.

Created a prettier version, with some changes to Kris and Katar suggested over on rpg.net.

Hm, and where is the conversion for the guns from SR4 core book which did not make into SR5? I truly miss the AK-97 Carbine  :-\

AK-97 Carbine (w/ detachable folding stock) - Acc 5 - DV 8P - AC 0 - Mode SA/BF/FA - RC (1) - Ammo 30(c) - Avail 4R - Costs 660

I would consider revision of some Costs which seem to be a bit high. The Walther Secura should have DV 7P no matter if w/ or w/o internal Smartgun system. The Cold Cobra is represented with a new version in SR5 which only has DV 7P. The SR4 versions should have the same DV instead of 8P. The Coldt M23 is listed in SR5 and should not be converted to a better gun then.

Anyway, keep up the good work. A very good orientation for converting weapons on demand.

Thanks for the input. I've fixed the errors you noted. Any more advice on what to do about prices? I'm tempted just to jack them up to 2x base and not worry about it. Too expensive is better than too cheap IMO. I imagine my players will be picking some of these up "slightly used" rather than buying them.

As for the AK97 Carbine... other than price those are the exact stats I ended up with. I've been plucking away at the Anniversary book and a couple others. Hopefully I'll get another version up (and vehicles) by next weekend.

To make some suggestions on prices I will have to investigate the changes a bit more. But generally, you are of course right: More expensive is the saver way. I have to admit that none of my characters in the past years ever really bought weapons. My group including the GM tend to use mostly disposable gear provided by the customers and sell the loot right away - low profile, you know. But I will send you some details on the costs issue later.

The costs for the AK-97 Carbine is indeed to low. Should be 760 . AK-97 Assault Rifle 950(SR5) / 500(SR4) = 1.9 → AK-97 Carbine 400(SR4) x 1.9 = 760(SR5).

Incidentally, any plans to update with stuff from either WAR! or the Gun Heaven 1 and 2 books? I'm playing 4E right now, but would love a chance to convert my character to 5e in the future.

I'll definitely be adding to it as I get time and more books.

That's awesome. List is already an amazing reference, I just kind of want to see how my Onotari Arms Manhunter converts over. :P

Mostly worked on adventure stuff with my spare time over the weekend, and fleshing out PC contacts. Got some mindless typing in on Saturday, though. Here's everything I've done so far. Let me know if there are any grievous errors.
