Dr. Mabuse,the Gambler is a 1922 german thriller directed by Fritz Lang and is starring Rudolf Klein-Rogge as Dr. Mabuse(a doctor using his hypnotic powers to commit crimes).
The following weapons were used in the film Dr. Mabuse,the Gambler:
Dreyse Model 1907
In a continuity error,during the final scene, von Wenk's handgun changes to a Dreyse Model 1907 pistol.
Unknown revolver 1
Hawasch(Károly Huszár) and Georg(Hans Adalbert von Schlettow) both use unidentified revolvers. At a first glance, they both reassemble Colt M1917 revolvers.However, the barrel appears to fire a rather smaller cartridge, indicating a potential 7.92mm spanish Eibar copy.State prosecutor von Wenk(Bernhard Goetzke) is also seen using one.
Police officers use short-barreled revolvers during the attack on the house.Their shape and lack of trigger guard indicates a belgian produced Webley Bulldog .
Unknown revolver 3
When running low on ammo, Hawasch attempts to fire a revolver.It is briefly seen, however it strongly reassembles a Nagant M1895 revolver.
The Mauser Gewehr 1871 is the most utilised weapon in the film.The german soldiers are using Mauser Gewehr 1871 rifles(both full length and carbine versions) during the attack on the house. Hawasch(Karoly Huszar), Dr. Mabuse(Rudolf Klein-Rogge),Fine and Spoerri all use carbines versions of the same rifle during the shootout.One full length rifle is also used fired from a house, by an unknown shooter.
The assault troops and state-prosecutor von Wenk(Bernhard Goetzke) are using fake hand grenades in an attempt to break the door of the house. Note:real explosions are occuring,but they were caused by(most likely) petards, and not hand grenades.
Pesch(Georg John) and Spoerri(Robert Forster Larinaga) are seen hiding a bomb inside a toolbox.
TRIVIA:In order to detonate the bomb, Pesch throws the toolbox inside a room(hitting it hardly against the floor).
