In "The Seeds of Doom", Richard Dunbar (Kenneth Gilbert) carries what appears to be a Hi-Power with him when he infiltrates Chase's mansion, and Major Beresford (John Acheson) also carries a Hi-Power as his sidearm. The Brigadier (Nicholas Courtney) uses a Hi-Power as his sidearm (such as in Robot).

A suppressed M1911 is also used in "Resurrection of the Daleks" by a fake policeman to murder an innocent bystander. In "Battlefield", Brigadier Winifred Bambera (Angela Bruce) carries an M1911 as does helicopter pilot Lt. Lavel (Dorota Rae). Lavel attempts to use her pistol to kill Morgaine (Jean Marsh) but fails.

In "The Seeds of Doom", Scorby (John Challis) carries a SIG P210 as his primary sidearm. He uses it throughout the serial and it even briefly winds up in the hands of the Doctor (Tom Baker) before being reclaimed by Scorby, although the Doctor never uses it.

Walther P38

In the Jon Pertwee-era serial "Inferno", a Walther P38 is the sidearm of the Brigade Leader (Nicholas Courtney) in the alternate universe. It is also picked up and used by Director Stahlman (Olaf Pooley). In "The Dæmons", Sergeant Benton (John Levene) carries a P38, sometimes equipped with a suppressor. In the Tom Baker serial "City of Death", the P38 is the primary firearm used by almost every single gun-wielding character. Duggan (Tom Chadbon) holds one on the Doctor, thugs in the employ of Count Scarlioni (Julian Glover) including Scarlioni butler Hermann (Kevin Flood) and ultimately Scarlioni himself, all use P38s. Silver-colored P38s equipped with large suppressors are used by the Cybermen's human minions in "Silver Nemesis".

In "The Dæmons" and "Invasion of the Dinosaurs", Captain Mike Yates' (Richard Franklin) sidearm is a Walther PPK. General Finch (John Bennett) also uses a PPK. Sgt. Benton (John Levene) briefly has one in "The Time Monster". In "The Seeds of Doom", Scorby (John Challis) keeps a Walther PPK as his backup pistol in the Antarctic base. He gives it to Arnold Keeler (Mark Jones). Later in the serial, Chase's chauffeur (Alan Chuntz) pulls a Walther on the Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith.
