The following weapons appear in the television miniseries Hitler: The Rise of Evil:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Pistols are frequently shown and used, including by Hitler himself.
Luger P08 pistols are used by various characters.
A Freikorp Officer is seen using a Mauser C96 during the 1919 troubles.
During the post-war years Hitler is seen carrying a Frommer Stop pistol.
During the "Night of the Long Knives" Hitler arrests Ernest Röhm (Peter Stormare) personally and he brandishes a CZ 27 for the job.
Mauser Gewehr 1898
Hitler and other soldiers are seen carrying the Mauser Gewehr 1898 during his WW1 service.
The Karabiner 98k rifle is seen in several scenes. German soldiers (including Hitler himself), and later the SS, are seen with this weapon. This is anachronistic as this rifle did not become active until June 1935. The Karabiner 98k may be standing in for the Mauser 98AZ Artillery Carbine in the World War I scenes.
Mauser Model 1903/30
Some German soldiers during the WWI scenes, seem to be armed with Turkish Mauser 1903/30 rifles.
A Nazi soldier is seen assassinating an "enemy of the state" with a Haenel-Schmeisser MP28/II.
ZB-53 (Maxim MG08 mockup)
The Germans in the trenches are seen using a Czech ZB-53 which has been modified to look like a historically accurate Maxim MG08.
Vickers Mk1 machine gun
During the 1919 German Revolution, the anti-communist "Freikorps" use a Vickers Mk1 against the communist "Spartacists" during the "Spartacist Uprising" in 1919.
