Democratic Terrorist, The
The Democratic Terrorist (Den Demokratiske Terroristen) is a 1992 Swedish/German/Moroccan thriller directed by Per Berglund starring Stellan Skarsgård as Swedish spy Carl Hamilton. It was based on the 1987 novel of the same name by Jan Guillou. It was the third and final time Skarsgård would play Carl Hamilton. Despite taking place in Sweden and Germany and starring mostly Swedish and German actors, most of the dialogue is in English.
Carl, seemingly disgraced and dismissed from the Royal Swedish Navy, is tasked with infiltrating a Red Army Faction cell in Hamburg.
The following guns were used in the film The Democratic Terrorist (1992):
Carl Hamilton's (Stellan Skarsgård) service weapon is a Beretta 92F. He refers to it as "his Beretta" in the dialogue.
As Carl is browsing through the TV while at the GSG9 headquarters, he sees an old news report on the arrest of Andreas Baader and Holger Meins in 1972. A German police officer is seen with a Walther PP while taking a shirt and pants-less Holger Meins into custody.
Smith & Wesson Model 13
Frustrated by inaction, Carl requests a "Smith & Wesson .357 Combat Magnum" as part of a drop. He receives a Smith & Wesson Model 13.
Colt Government Model
Werner (Karl Heinz Maslo) is armed with a nickelplated Colt Government Model pistol when he takes Carl to their flat.
Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub Nose
In a continuity error, the Smith & Wesson Model 13 turns into a Smith & Wesson Model 19 Snub Nose. (This is probably the "Combat Magnum" he had in mind.)
During their first meeting at the apartment, Carl disarms Friederike of a Walther P38 and throws it away. She is later seen with it again when they talk about committing a robbery together. Monica (Katja Flint) is armed with a Walther P38 while in Stockholm.
Monika (Katja Flint) is seen with what appears to be a blued SIG-Sauer P230 during the bankrobbery.
Bruni Automatic M1911
Some of the terrorists use early Bruni Automatic M1911 blank firing replicas. Eva (May Buchgraber) has one at the end of the movie.
Smith & Wesson Model 19
The security guard at the bank is armed with a full sized Smith & Wesson Model 19.
Carl takes a SIG-Sauer P225 (actually a Geco P35 blank gun) off a plainclothes police officer who responds to the bank robbery. He unloads it and tosses it in a wastebasket. Carl later identifies it in dialogue as "a SIG-Sauer." Friederike (Susanne Lothar) also fires a Geco pistol during the apartment assault.
The PLO officer (Despina Pajanou) uses a Walther PPK to shoot Carl. She describes it as a "Walther 765."
Monika (Katja Flint) is seen with what appears to be a Walther P5 when Carl meets her after the apartment massacre.
Werner (Karl Heinz Maslo) carries a Mossberg 500 during the joint bank robbery.
Remington 870 Slug Gun
In a possible continuity error, Werner (Karl Heinz Maslo) is armed with a Remington 870 Slug Gun during the raid in the end.
Sawn-off Double Barreled Shotgun
Carl request a Sawn-off Double Barreled Shotgun. In a continuity error, he gets two different models.
Swedish sailors are seen marching with Swedish M/45 B submachine guns with brass catchers in the beginning of the movie when Carl is told about his mission.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
GSG 9 officers are armed with Heckler & Koch MP5A3 submachine guns. All of them use the original "slimline" handguards and waffle magazines (although a curved magazine is seen briefly in passing.) Carl uses one while training with GSG 9 in the beginning. One of the terrorists is armed with one as well.
Heckler & Koch MP5A2
During the old news report Carl is watching, on the arrest of Andreas Baader and Holger Meins, a German police officer is seen with Heckler & Koch MP5A2 submachine gun with the original "slimline" handguard and a waffle magazine.
The Syrian and PLO guards, ironically, are armed with Israeli designed Uzi submachine guns.
Beretta PM12Ss are seen in the Syrian scenes.
Heckler & Koch G3
A Bundeswehr guard is seen with a Heckler & Koch G3 slung over his shoulder.
The weapons that the cell intends to use against the American Embassy are AT4 rocket launchers. Carl notes that they are Swedish made.
GSG 9 uses flashbangs during the apartment assault.
