The following weapons were used in Season 1 of the television series The Man in the High Castle:


Colt M1911A1

A Colt M1911A1 is used by Joe Blake (Luke Kleintank) and by Don Warren (Michael Rispoli) when he meets with him in an auto repair shop in New York at the start of "Pilot". Various resistance fighters use them as their main weapon in the show.

Pocket-sized Flintlock Pistols. Because Flintlock Pistols were occasionally carried in multiples to bypass their lengthy reload times, they allowed for possibly the earliest form of Akimbo shooting and/or the "New York Reload" technique.

Nambu Type 14

Plainclothes Kempeitai officers, including Chief Inspector Hidestoshi Kido (Joel de la Fuente) and Sergeant Yoshida (Lee Shorten) carry the Nambu Type 14 as their main sidearm. Yakuza Wakashus (Foot soldiers) who rescue Juliana and Joe from the Kempeitai also carry Nambu pistols.

Walther PPK

A Walther PPK is used by an resistance member in "Pilot". In "A Way Out", Oberst Rudolf Weneger (Carsten Norgaard) uses one of Hitler's personal PPK's to try and assassinate him, as security at the Fuhrer's residence prevented him from bringing in his own sidearm.

Heckler & Koch MP5A3

GNR Military Police and SS soldiers appear to carry the Heckler & Koch MP5A3 submachine guns with curved magazines and slim forearms as their primary weapons. In the alternative timeline of the show, it can be assumed they were designed and built at least four years ahead of time, phasing out the MP40 out of service. Its bigger older brother, the Heckler & Koch G3, is relatively unchanged in its place in this alternate timeline.

Sniper Rifles

SVD Dragunov

When Chief Inspector Kido (Joel de la Fuente) and Sergeant Yoshida (Lee Shorten) search the hotel room of a Nazi official, they find a hidden SVD Dragunov rifle that was used to try and assassinate the Crown Prince of Japan. Although the rifle's appearance in the show is anachronistic, it is possible that in the alternative timeline it was produced earlier and thus could be used to carry out the assassination attempt.

Battle Rifles

Howa Type 64

The Howa Type 64 is seen with the Imperial Japanese Army throughout the show, being pushed into service as a replacement for their Arisaka bolt-action rifles.

In the world of The Man in The High Castle, it may be under the name Type 37, referring to the 37th year of Emperor Hirohito's reign, 1962; a convention that was replaced by the year a weapon entered service in the western calendar after Japan lost WWII. It may be chambered in 6.5x50mm Arisaka instead of 7.62x51mm NATO as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was never formed in this alternate history. The presence of the Type 64 is slightly anachronistic as the weapon entered service in Showa 39 or 1964, two years after the setting of the novel and show, however it is highly likely due to winning the war and never having to disarm, Japan's weapon industry was allowed to accelerate unchecked.

It is possible that these are airsoft replicas made by S&T Armament, a Hong Kong-based airsoft manufacturer as the Type 64 and other post-war weapons are banned from export under Japanese law.
