Nice, but where's the trigger?

Luger P08

The Nazi-like Kaled Scientific Elite in Genesis of the Daleks employ Luger P08 handguns, notably Security Commander Nyder (Peter Miles) and General Ravon (Guy Siner). Harry Sullivan (Ian Marter) appropriates Ravon's Luger and uses it for a brief while.

Mannlicher Model 1905

In Genesis of the Daleks, Kaled scientist Ronson (James Garbutt) carries what appears to be a Mannlicher Model 1905 as his personal sidearm when he helps the Doctor (Tom Baker) and Harry Sullivan (Ian Marter) escape from Davros' base.

Webley Mk VI

The Webley Mk VI is another handgun seen used by the Kaled Scientific Elite in Genesis of the Daleks. Security Commander Nyder (Peter Miles) has one as his personal sidearm in the final episodes of the serial, but hands it over to the dissenters led by Gharman (Dennis Chinnery).

Thal soldier Bettan (Harriet Philpin) can be seen with an M1911 style handgun in Genesis of the Daleks. Presumably this is also the primary sidearm of the Thal army. She carries it throughout the latter part of the serial.

SIG P210

In The Seeds of Doom, Scorby (John Challis) carries what appears to be a SIG P210 as his primary sidearm. He uses it throughout the serial and it even briefly winds up in the hands of the Doctor (Tom Baker) before being reclaimed by Scorby, although the Doctor never uses it.

Whilst hiding from Chase's guards, Sarah reminds the Doctor he'd never actually use the gun. "They don't know that," he replies.

Walther PPK

In The Seeds of Doom, Scorby (John Challis) keeps a Walther PPK as his backup pistol in the antarctic base. He gives it to Arnold Keeler (Mark Jones). Later in the serial, Chase's chauffeur (Alan Chuntz) pulls a Walther on the Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith.

Browning Hi-Power

Richard Dunbar (Kenneth Gilbert) carries what appears to be a Browning Hi-Power with him when he infiltrates Chase's mansion and encounters the Krynoid.

Walther P38

In the serial City of Death, the Walther P38 is the primary firearm used by almost every single gun-wielding character. Detective Duggan (Tom Chadbon) holds one on the Doctor, thugs in the employ of Count Scarlioni (Julian Glover) including Scarlioni butler Hermann (Kevin Flood) and ultimately Scarlioni himself, all use P38's.

Smith & Wesson 4th Model

After learning her husband is actually the alien Scaroth, Countess Scarlioni (Catherine Schell) pulls what seems to be a pearl-handled Smith & Wesson 4th Model pistol on him.

Submachine Guns

Sten Mk I

The Kaled Scientific Elite and their soldiers in Genesis of the Daleks use black Sten submachine guns.

In The Seeds of Doom the guards at Harrison Chase's country estate all carry Uzis with shoulder straps and the stocks extended. Scorby (John Challis) also carries one in some scenes.

Sterling SMG

UNIT Soldiers are armed with Sterling SMGs in multiple episodes, such as Robot and Invasion of the Dinosaurs. A Sterling is also seen briefly in the hands of a Kaled soldier in Genesis of the Daleks.

In The Seeds of Doom, an L1A1 SLR is used by the scientists at the antarctic base, but is sabotaged by Scorby. UNIT soldiers carry SLRs as their primary firearms on multiple occasions such as in The Seeds of Doom and Terror of the Zygons.

The rifle fails to fire because Scorby earlier removed the gun's firing pin. Note the folding charging handle, indicating this is an SLR rather than a regular FAL.

L9A1 Mortar

In Day of the Daleks UNIT soldiers use an L9A1 Mortar to defend Auderly House against the Daleks and the Ogrons.

Fictional Firearms

UNIT Laser Gun

During their attack on Chase's mansion in The Seeds of Doom, UNIT soldiers employ an experimental "laser" weapon against the giant Krynoid to no noticeable effect.
