Default auto gun question

my friend is playing with a catachan army and he's been wondering what the stats for auto guns are. Are there stats for auto guns in a codex?

I didn't know auto gun's existed??
If you are referring to the auto cannon then they are in the IG/SM codecies.

One i've been wondering about however is the rules for auto pistols?

Autoguns and lasguns have the same stats; they are equivalent weapons in the game, even if in fluff they differ. An autogun is a basic infantry rifle that shoots bullets.

It dates back a few editions of 40K, but even then was pretty much the same thing as the lasgun.

Cheers!

Yep. It uses the same stats as a Lasgun. Only place where they start realy differing is in specialist games like Necromunda.. but for 40K puroses it is just another name for lasgun. Just a modeling option really.. if you'd rather have men with assault rifles instead of the laser rifle.

Stubgun/Autopistol = Laspistol.

Autogun = Lasgun.
