My favorite is between the Morita rifle and the ZF-1 (for how over the top it is)

Is the Morita a Ruger Mini-14 under that shell? I can't remember.

That's definitely a cool one.

I also like the "Muzzlelite" bullpup shells that go over the Mini-14, that they used in Total Recall and Terminator.

I have one that fits on a 10/22. It's neat and very 80's.

You know what? Looking again at the Morita, it actually looks like an altered Muzzlelite!

Yep, has an ac556 under the hood and it is a muzzlelite, but modified. Tank girl also features some muzzlelite rifles. Goofy Obie, but I liked it.
 
Several of my favs have already been mentioned so I'll go with a few from two of my favourite shows, Babylon 5 and Battlestar Galactica. First up is the PPG Rifle/Carbine. I'm reasonably sure that the bulk of the weapon is based off of the Ruger Mini 14 Series 182. Here are a few images to look over,

The later version used was also based on the same Mini 14,

Another one on the show which was only seen briefly in two episodes. It was based off of the Muzzlelite 1022.

One last one was again only on screen for a couple of seconds, it is pretty easy to see it a MP5,

Now for Battlestar Galactica, with the exception of the Season 1 sidearm which was a S&W 686 beneath a frame. All the other weapons were pretty much left alone except for some bits and bobs added on like for the FN 57 which has a grenade launcher added beneath the barrel at the business end.

The longarm seen the most is the Beretta CX4 carbine. There were Picatinny rails added as well as a custom flash suppresor,

Here's an obscure one that's always been a favourite of mine. This is Alita/Gally's 'Tuned' pistol from the 'Battle Angel Alita' manga (not the movie). From the look of it, I think the writer/artist Yukito Kishiro must have been inspired by a few different real-world weapons, which is why it looks so functional. To me it seems to take at least some of its design cues from a Calico M960 and the Hämmerli 280, with an FN P90 magazine. It looks great in the manga, but as a real-world weapon I think it's very convincing! And it's a beast, too! :D
