Handguns

Walther P38

Several German officers carry a Walther P38 in their holsters. At the end of the film, Ed Leland (Michael Douglas) uses a Walther P38 to kill a German officer and a German soldier when he runs towards the German border (he manages to fire 15 shots from his 8-shot Walther).

Rifles

Swedish M1896 Mauser

M1896 Swedish Mausers are the most common German infantry weapon in the film, which is inaccurate - At the time, the German military would have been using the Mauser Karabiner 98k as their service rifle, not a Swedish Mauser. A German soldier uses a Mauser rifle to wound Leland in the knee and the shoulder at the end of the movie when he struggles to get to the Swiss-German border.

K31 Rifle

The straight-pull bolt action K31 Rifle is used by the Swiss border guards, notably at the end of the film when one justifiably shoots a German soldier with a K31 after he crosses over into Switzerland. This is actually an accurate weapon as the K31 was the standard-issue service rifle of the Swiss military at the time.
