Inglourious Basterds is a 2009 World War II film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino and starring Brad Pitt, Christoph Waltz, Michael Fassbender, Mélanie Laurent, and Eli Roth. His eighth feature, Tarantino had started writing this film's screenplay in 1998, but had put it off to make Kill Bill when he couldn't come with an ending. Although the title is similar to the film The Inglorious Bastards, two films have little in common aside from the World War II setting and cameos by director Enzo G. Castellari and actor Bo Svenson. The film received eight Academy Award nominations, including Best Original Screenplay, Best Director and Best Picture and Christoph Waltz received the award for Best Supporting Actor.


The following weapons were used in the film Inglourious Basterds:

Handguns

Walther P38

SD Standartenfuhrer Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz), Gestapo Major Hellstrom (August Diehl) and several other German officers carry Walther P38 pistols. At the end, Landa hands his P38 to Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt), who fires it himself. During the Nadine tavern gunfight, Hellstrom fires a P38 as do other German soldiers in the bar and Cpl. Wilhelm Wicki (Gedeon Burkhard), one of the "basterds".

Walther PPK

When disguised as an SS Hauptshturmfuhrer, British Lt. Archie Hicox (Michael Fassbender) carries a Walther PPK. During the same part of Operation Kino, Hugo Stiglitz (Til Schweiger) disguises himself as a Obersturmfuhrer (Lieutenant First Class) and packs his own PPK. Both men end up aiming their pistols at Gestapo Major Hellstrom. After the gunfight in the Nadine tavern, Bridget von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger) picks up Hicox's PPK and fires it.

Walther PPK - 7.65x17mm (.32 ACP)

"Say 'auf wiedersehen' to your Nazi balls!" - Stiglitz sticks his PPK into Hellstrom's lap.
Hicox and Stiglitz fire their PPKs at each other's crotches.
Stiglitz and the German female shoot each other in the tavern. This shot is rather curious, since the German female shoots Stiglitz only once, and here he is shown with multiple bullet wounds (the other bullets may have been ricochets).
Bridget von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger) fires a Walther PPK.

Luger P08

As Lt. Raine "debriefs" Bridget by pressing his index finger into her leg wound, Donny Donowitz (Eli Roth) holds his Luger P08 on her. Fredrick Zoller (Daniel Brühl), a German private, carries a Luger as his issued sidearm and arms himself with it while attending the premiere of "Nation's Pride". Several characters (including the Basterds) have Luger holsters on their belts.

FN Model 1905 or Colt Model 1908 Vest Pocket

Shosanna Dreyfus (Mélanie Laurent) prepares for trouble at the premiere of "Nation's Pride" by loading a small pistol and keeping it in her purse, eventually drawing and firing it. This is most probably either a FN Model 1905 or a Colt Model 1908 Vest Pocket. Two pistols are virtually identical, coming from the same design by John Browning which he sold to FN Herstal in Belgium and Colt in USA. They are most easily distinguished by the grip designs and logos, but as the grips of Shosanna's pistol are never seen clearly enough to identify, her pistol could be either the FN 1905 or Colt 1908, or one of the many FN 1905 imitations made by firearms manufacturers across Europe.

Shotguns

Sawed-Off Over/Under Shotgun

When the "basterds" break Stiglitz out of custody from a Berlin jail, Donny Donowitz (Eli Roth) carries a Sawed-off Over/Under Shotgun, using it to shoot a German soldier guarding Stiglitz. It is best seen on a promotional image (seen in the Discussion section of this article).

Double-Barreled Shotgun

Eric (Christian Berkel), the owner of the tavern in Nadine, keeps a hammerless Double-Barreled Shotgun behind the bar, firing it when the gunfight begins.

Baikal Side by Side Shotgun - 12 Gauge
Eric slowly reaches for his shotgun behind the bar.
Eric fires his shotgun as Wicki shoots at him. Note Stiglitz's knife in Major Hellstrom's neck.
Unless those were rounds from other firearms (which is doubtful, since the rounds aimed at him are from an angle and not perpendicular to the table), there is no way the shotgun was able to spread the pellets that much at that close of range. This shot was only in the trailer and not in the final cut.

Submachine Guns

MP40

Many German soldiers and guards are seen with MP40s throughout the film. Several of the "Basterds" use MP40s as well, including S/Sgt. Donny Donowitz (Eli Roth), PFC Smithson Utivich (B.J. Novak), PFC Omar Ulmer (Omar Doom), PFC Gerold Hirschberg (Samm Levine), and Oberfeldwebel Hugo Stiglitz (Til Schweiger). Wilhelm (Alexander Fehling), another Oberfeldwebel, gets ahold of an MP40 during the Nadine tavern gunfight.

Hirschberg, Stiglitz, and Donny fire their captured MP40s at a group of German soldiers. Stiglitz is holding his sideways so that the recoil fans the MP40 out, creating a spread effect. This technique is often used with the Thompson.

M1928/M1928A1 Thompson

Some of the American soldiers in "Nation's Pride" carry M1928/M1928A1 Thompsons.

M3 Grease Gun

Some of the American soldiers in "Nation's Pride" carry M3 Grease Guns.

M3 Grease Gun - .45 ACP. The later model M3A1 would eliminate the crank lever for cocking the bolt, and instead used a simple hole in the bolt for the shooter to use their finger.

Rifles/Carbines

M1 Garand

As the "Basterds" are first assembled, M1 Garand rifles are seen slung over the shoulders of Wilhelm Wicki (Gedeon Burkhard), Smithson Utivich (B.J. Novak), PFC Andy Kagan (Paul Rust), PFC Michael Zimmerman (Michael Bacall), PFC Simon Sakowitz (Carlos Fidel), PFC Omar Ulmer (Omar Doom), and PFC Gerold Hirschberg (Samm Levine). They are also wielded by some of the American soldiers in the film-within-a-film "Nation's Pride".

Karabiner 98k

Some of the "basterds", including Lt. Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt), Wilhelm Wicki (Gedeon Burkhard), and PFC Gerold Hirschberg (Samm Levine) carry German Karabiner 98k rifles, most likely taken from German troops they captured and killed. Raine's Karabiner has "Inglourious Basterds" carved into the butt. In the propaganda film-within-a-film "Nation's Pride", Fredrick Zoller (Daniel Brühl) also fires a Karabiner 98k. With trick editing in "Nation's Pride" (presumably to make the single German soldier appear like a "superhero" to the German audiences), Zoller's bolt-action Karabiner is made to appear to fire semi-automatic shots.

M1 Carbine

Others

OSS pistol glove

Donny Donowitz (Eli Roth) and Omar Ulmer (Omar Doom) each use a .38 caliber short-range OSS Pistol Glove when assassinating two guards outside the German high command. As in real life, these weapons are loaded with a .38 round and punched into the target to fire it.

Nation's Pride (Stolz der Nation)

Nation's Pride (1944)

Nation's Pride (Stolz der Nation) is the film-within-a-film in Inglourious Basterds, directed by Eli Roth (as German director Alois von Eichberg). Although in Inglourious Basterds the film is described as requiring at least four reels, which would imply a running time of at least 44-48 minutes, the film is actually only a little over six minutes, five without the opening credits. The film features a cameo by Bo Svenson, star of the original The Inglorious Bastards as an American colonel who is reluctant to destroy the ancient tower occupied by Fredrick Zoller (Daniel Brühl). The entire film (all 6:10 of it) and an accompanying making-of featurette, starring Roth, Brühl, Sylvester Groth and Julie Dreyfus in characters, are included in home video copies.

The following firearms were used in the film Nation's Pride (Stolz der Nation):
