FN Model 1910

Gustave (Richard Katz), the waiter in mountain-top hotel in Switzerland and the accomplice of crime mastermind Marrascaud, carries an FN Model 1910 pistol when he impersonates Swiss Police Lt. Drouet.

When unmasked Gustave aims at Poirot, real Drouet knocks the pistol out of Gustave's hand by a accurate shot of his Luger.

Unidentified (toy?) pistol

When Gustave's pistol falls into precipice, it switches from FN 1910 to another gun, with modern outlook and very possibly plastic, maybe a toy gun.

Luger P08

Schwartz (Tom Wlaschiha), a hotel guest turned out to be real Lt. Drouet, uses a Luger P08. Lugers are also seen in hands of other Swiss policemen, including Inspector Lementeuil (Nicholas McGaughey).

Luger P08 - 9x19mm. This is a blank adapted movie gun.

Astra Cub

Alice Cunningham (Eleanor Tomlinson), who turns out to be crime mastermind Marrascaud, holds an Astra Cub pocket pistol in the climactic scene. This pistol is anachronistic for late 1930s when the story is set.

Walther PPK

Dr. Heinrich Lutz (Simon Callow), another Marrascaud's accomplice, uses a Walther PPK to take hostage ballet dancer Katrina Samoushenka (Fiona O'Shaughnessy).

Early Waffenamt marked Walther PPK. Note the differences: orange bakelite grips, lanyard ring, smaller rear sight, grooved top, and irregular front - 7.65x17mm Auto (.32 ACP)
A showdown: Alice Cunningham aims at Vera Rossakoff, Dr. Lutz aims at Katrina Samoushenka, and Lt. Drouet in turn holds Lutz at gunpoint.
