Season 5 of Agatha Christie's Poirot contains 8 episodes: "The Adventure of the Egyptian Tomb", "The Underdog", "The Yellow Iris", "The Case of the Missing Will", "The Adventure of the Italian Nobleman", "The Chocolate Box", "Dead Man's Mirror", and "Jewel Robbery at the Grand Metropolitan". All episodes are based on short stories.
The following weapons were used in Season 5 of the television series Agatha Christie's Poirot:
Webley .38 Mk IV
Compact top-break revolver
In "The Adventure of the Egyptian Tomb" (S05E01) Rupert Bleibner (Paul Birchard) shots himself with a compact top-break revolver. It appears to be some model of Smith & Wesson, Iver Johnson or Harrington & Richardson.
A Beretta M1934 is a murder weapon in "Dead Man's Mirror" (S05E07).
M43 Spanish Mauser
In "The Adventure of the Egyptian Tomb" (S05E01) Egyptian guards of the archaeologist expeditions are armed with Mauser rifles. The desert scenes were filmed in Spain, and the rifles are very likely M43 Spanish Mausers. In "The Yellow Iris" (S05E03) Argentinian soldiers carry M43 Spanish Mausers during the events of September Revolution 1930 (in the episode the scene is set in 1934). The scenes in Buenos Aires were also filmed in Spain.
Note: see additional images on talk page.
Mauser Gewehr 1898 Carbine
An Argentinian soldier in "The Yellow Iris" (S05E03) carries a short Mauser rifle with Lange Visier sight. Probably this is a Gewehr 98, shortened to carbine length. Similar rifles are seen in some British movies, like The Square Peg and Ice Cold in Alex.
Unidentified Mauser rifle
Several Argentinian soldiers in "The Yellow Iris" (S05E03) carry short Mauser rifles of unclear model. Rifles look similar to Karabiner 98k except for straight bolt handles (thought the stocks have notches for turned-down bolt handles).
Small caliber rifle
In "Jewel Robbery at the Grand Metropolitan" (S05E08) Chief Inspector Japp (Philip Jackson) uses a small caliber bolt action rifle for shooting targets on a fair.
In the scenes in Argentina in "The Yellow Iris" (S05E03) an armoured car of unidentified model is seen. It is armed with a Vickers machine gun.
In "The Yellow Iris" (S05E03) Argentinian General Pereira (Stefan Gryff) carries a German military pattern holster for Luger P08. It's impossible to say if there is a pistol in holster or it is empty.
