The following weapons were used in Season 9 of the television series Father Brown:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS!!!
Webley .38 Mk IV
Bill Devlin (Craig Conway) holds a Webley .38 Mk IV in several scenes in "The Menace of Mephistopheles" (S09E01). Ispettore (Sgt. Maj. rank) Mario Angelini (Raffaello Degruttola) of the Gendarmerie of Vatican (incorrectly referred as Papal Carabinieri) holds a Webley .38 Mk IV in "The Final Devotion" (S09E05).
Devlin holds the revolver when he breaks in Inspector Mallory's house in "The Menace of Mephistopheles".
Devlin aims the revolver at Mallory. When Devlin leaves the car, the revolver switches to a .455 Mk VI.
Angelini (who turns out to be an impostor and Hercule Flambeau's sworn enemy) holds Flambeau at gunpoint in "The Final Devotion".
Another view of the same scene.

The grip is seen when Angelini carries the revolver tucked into his belt.
Angelini aims at Father Brown.
Angelini finds out that the revolver is unloaded, and Flambeau shows the ammunition.
Webley .455 Mk VI
When Bill Devlin (Craig Conway) tries to escape from police, his revolver switches from a .38 Mk IV to a Webley .455 Mk VI due to a continuity error, or because in this scene Devlin fires his gun, and the previously used Mk IV could be a non-firing prop.
Webley Mk VI - .455 Webley
Devlin fires at Sid Carter in the lorry.
vz. 24 Czech Mauser
In a flashback scene in "The Final Devotion" (S09E05), set during the liberation of the Southern France, an American MP holds a vz. 24 Czech Mauser, probably used as a stand-in for M1903 Springfield.
Czech vz. 24 - 7.92x57mm Mauser
An MP in the jeep holds a Mauser vz. 24 rifle.
In the same scene a French gendarme holds a rifle that is seen only partially. The combination of the front sight with large protective "ears", the upper handguard that extends till the second barrel band, the shape of the top barrel band and of the head of the cleaning rod allows to make a guess that this is a Portuguese Mauser-Vergueiro m/1904-39, a version of m/1904 that was shortened and rechambered in 7.92mm Mauser caliber. Original m/1904 has longer barrel and lacks the "ears" on the front sight.
Note: this is the first recorded occurrence of Mauser-Vergueiro on IMFDB.
Mauser-Vergueiro m/1904-39 - 7.92x57mm Mauser
A gendarme aims at Flambo's accomplice in lootery.
The rifle in hands of the gendarme is seen only in distance.
A bolt action hunting/sporting rifle with sniper scope is used by Stanley Buchanan (Evan Milton) and then by Gabe Hawthorne (Luke Nunn) in "The New Order" (S09E06). It is supposed to be a Browning BBR, judging by the rear part of the bolt. This rifle is anachronistic for 1950s as the production of the Browning BBR rifle began only in 1978.
Browning BBR with Tasco 3-9x40 scope - .270 Win
Sergeant Goodfellow (John Burton
) holds the rifle, found in the forest.
Stanley Buchanan aims the rifle in the flashback scene.

Double Barreled Shotgun
In "The Enigma of Antigonish" (S09E09) a Double Barreled Shotgun is used by Finbar Finch (Ryan Gage), Victor Peters (Peter Singh), and Sid Carter (Alex Price).
Samuel Buckley & Company/Anson & Deeley Side by Side Shotgun - 12 gauge
Sgt. Goodfellow finds a spent shotgun shell on the murder place.
Finch holds a shotgun in the flashback scene.
