My Way (Korean title:마이 웨이) is a 2011 South Korean war film directed by Kang Je-gyu. Two Rival marathoners, Korean rickshaw driver Kim Jun-Shik (Dong-gun Jang) and Japanese-born Tatsuo Hasegawa (Joe Odagiri), are put into front-line service with the Imperial Japanese Army, Jun-Shik a draftee and Tatsuo a fiercely Nationalist colonel. Captured by the Red Army during the Battle of Khalkhin Gol, they endure a harsh journey that takes them from a forced-labor camp in Russia to battle against the Wehrmacht and ultimately defending Omaha Beach from the Americans on D-Day.

The following weapons are seen in My Way:

Sidearms

Colt M1911A1

Wehrmacht officers use the Colt M1911A1 during the Battle of Hedosk. This is not necessarily inaccurate, as captured M1911A1 pistols were used by German forces designated as the "Pistole 660(a)". Close examination shows that the guns are not actually fired, with muzzle flashes added in post-production.

Nambu Type 14

Tatsuo Hasegawa (Joe Odagiri) and several other Japanese officers use the Nambu Type 14. Note that the large trigger guard makes this a "late" Nambu, which would be inaccurate for the Battle of Khalkhin Gol.

Tokarev TT-33

The Tokarev TT-33 is used by Red Army prison guards and Commissar's. Tatsuo Hasegawa (Joe Odagiri) uses a presumably captured TT-33 to execute retreating Japanese soldiers at Khalkhin Gol.

Submachine Guns

PPSh-41

Both Red Army and Wehrmacht soldiers use the PPSh-41 (not inaccurate, many Germans fighting on the Ostfront used the PPSh-41). However, the weapon does make an appearance amongst the Labor camp guards in scenes set pre-1941, which would make it anachronistic.

Rifles

Arisaka Type 38

The Arisaka Type 38 is the main weapon of the Imperial Japanese Army, including Kim Jun-Shik (Dong-gun Jang) and Lee Jong-dae (Kim In-kwon).

Karabiner 98k

The main weapon of the Wehrmacht soldiers is the Karabiner 98k. Oddly enough, several US soldiers also use the 98k - possibly because of an inadequate number of US rifles.

Karabiner 98k "Kriegsmodell"

At least one soldier can be seen with a Karabiner 98k "Kriegsmodell" rifle, a late war version of the Kar 98k intended to simplify production. Specifically this rifle is a "semi-Kriegsmodell" as it incorporates some simplification features (simpler screw retained barrel bands and no bayonet lug or cleaning rod) but not all (it still has the disk on the buttstock to aid in disassembly of the bolt).

Karabiner 98k Sniper

Shirai (Fan Bingbing), a Chinese guerrilla sniper, uses what appears to be a Karabiner 98k Sniper fitted with a ZF39 scope on a side rail mount. The choice of weapon is inaccurate, but since the film was shot in Latvia and the weapon is never seen in much detail, it is probably meant to stand in for the more accurate Type Zhongzheng Rifle.

MG42

The MG42 is the main machine gun of the Wehrmacht. Note that it's appearance in the Battle of Hedosk is inaccurate; the battle is set in 1941, a year before the MG42 was adopted. Kim Jun-Shik (Dong-gun Jang) and Tatsuo Hasegawa (Joe Odagiri) use the MG42 during the D-Day landings.
