The following weapons were used in Season 8 of the animated series Archer:

Season 8 of Archer, now titled "Dreamland", takes place in 1947 in his head as he is in a coma. In this alternate universe, Archer is now a P.I. investigating the death of his partner (former servant) Woodhouse. All of the characters have new personalities and have been reintroduced to different roles, where Lana is now a singer at a bar, Pam is now a guy, and Malory, who goes by the name "Mother", is now the head of an mob organization that operates out of a jazz bar.


Colt M1911A1

Archer's traditional and iconic Walther PPK has been switched to the American Colt M1911A1. Unlike previous seasons, Archer's M1911 is blued steel instead of satin nickel. Close up shots reveal that Archer's sidearm is also worn-out and has scratch markings on it, which could mean this is the same .45 he was issued when he was in the Army. Of note, the animators properly show the weapon as a single action handgun only, which means the hammer must be cocked for the weapon to fire.

"What...the shit?!" Archer after Poovey shoots the three men he recently beat up.
In "Berenice" (S8E2), Archer's mind takes him back to when he was wounded and saved by a French nun, who is cocking the hammer of Archer's M1911A1.
He thinks he's seeing the French nun shooting at Nazis...
...only for it to be Charolette Vandertunt (Cheryl/Carol) shooting at an elderly couple whom accidentally hit Archer with their car because their headlights were out.

Smith & Wesson Model 10

Sgt. Poovey and Det. Figgis' weapon of choice is a Smith & Wesson Model 10 revolver, specifically a "Military & Police" version, popular with Law Enforcement throughout the 20th Century.

Smith & Wesson Model 15

In "Berenice" (S8E2), Poovey's revolver he/she pulls out is a Smith & Wesson Model 15, unlike the M&P Model 10 in the previous episode; note the rear adjustable sights and pointed front post. This is the same revolver Det. Dietrich used last season as well, although it's appearance is slightly anachronistic as the Model 15 wasn't produced until 1949.

Luger P08

In "Ladyfingers" (S8E4), a German SS Officer confronts Dr. Krieger with a Luger P08 after finding out he was actually a university professor named Aaron Leibowitz, who was removed from his position for being Jewish.

Colt 1908 Vest Pocket

In "Waxing Gibbous" (S8E6),"Gramercy,Halberd" (S8E7) Lana can be seen using a Colt Model 1908 Vest Pocket semi-automatic handgun as her service weapon as she was revealed to be a "Treasury Agent"

Submachine Guns

M1928A1 Thompson

Several of Len Trexlor's gang members are seen using M1928A1 Thompson submachine guns, identifiable by the Cutts compensator, top mounted charging handle, flip-up adjustable rear sights, and finned barrel. It makes sense for these versions of the Thompson to be seen in mobsters hands, as the later M1 and M1A1 would most likely still be in military inventory.

The three men point their Tommy Guns at Pam, whom inexplicably fell through the canvas covered roof of the truck.
Archer swinging the Thompson into the goon's jaw. This action sequence was mirrored in one of his WW2 flashbacks, where he did the same exact thing to a German soldier, only with an MP40 (see below).


German soldiers in a couple of flashbacks are seen equipped with MP40 submachine guns. This is the first time the MP40 is shown since Archer - Season 2. Since then, it was replaced by the more modern, but similarly German MP5.

M1 Garand

In a brief-PTSD like flashback in Episode 1, Archer and a US soldier next to him are seen climbing down into troop transport carriers with M1 Garand rifles slung over their backs, possibly during Operation Overlord.
