Sakura Wars: The Movie (2001).


The following weapons were used in the anime film Sakura Wars: The Movie:


Pistols

Fictional Steampunk Pistol

A plainclothed Tokubetsu-keibi-tai (Tokkeitai for short) soldier is armed with what appears to be a fictional steampunk pistol, which appears to be on the pistol body of a Browning Hi-Power with the chamber of a revolver and having rifle-based iron sights.

A Type 73 Belgian made Browning Hi-Power - 9x19mm. Its body was used as the basis for the creation of the said pistol.
A Tokkeitai soldier aims the steampunk pistol at Douglas-Stewart militia soldiers near the end of the movie when they conduct a raid at DS' Tokyo headquarters. Note the Hi-Power-based safety on the body.
The Tokkeitai soldier disarms the DS soldier of his M1903 rifle while aiming the steampunk pistol at his chest.

Nambu Type 14

A Nambu Type 14 was used by an Imperial Japanese Army officer when the Flower Division busts into the bridge of the Goraigo despite being under orders not to be there. Since the movie is set in Taisho 15 (1926), the Type 14 would have served as the IJA's main sidearm.

Rifles
