The investigation leads his to the trail of Wanda Merville.

WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
The following weapons were used in the film The Hunchback of Soho (Der Bucklige von Soho):
Arminius HW-1 revolvers seen in hands of Inspector Hopkins (Günther Stoll), his superior Sir John (Siegfried Schürenberg), Allan Davis (Pinkas Braun), Reverend David (Eddi Arent), General Edward Perkins (Hubert von Meyerinck), the overseer of the reformatory (Hilde Sessak), and a police sergeant (Kurt Waitzmann).
A revolver is briefly seen in the gun cabinet in Gen. Perkins' estate. Judging by the shape of the grip, this gun is most likely a target weapon.
One more revolver (or maybe a target pistol) is seen on the bottom of the cabinet.
An MP40 is seen on the wall in Gen. Perkins' "war room".
Rifles and Assault Rifles
A Sturmgewehr 44 without buttstock and magazine is seen on the wall in Gen. Perkins' "war room".
Five battle rifles of unclear models are seen in the gun rack in Gen. Perkins' "war room".
Various long guns
Five long guns are seen in the gun cabinet in Gen. Perkins' estate.
An MG34 is seen in Gen. Perkins' "war room".
An MG42 is also seen in Gen. Perkins' "war room".
In his "war room" Gen. Perkins recreates the Battle for Tobruk. Toy tanks that he uses to represent the troops under his command look very different from wartime models, especially from British ones.
