The King's Man is a 2021 spy action film, prequel to 2015's Kingsman: The Secret Service. Matthew Vaughn returns to direct the film, which tells the story of the formation of the secret spy organization during the events of WWI. The cast includes Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Djimon Hounsou and Daniel Brühl. The film was scheduled for release in March of 2020, but was delayed until December 22, 2021, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The following weapons were used in the film The King's Man:
Orlando, Duke of Oxford (Ralph Fiennes) is seen with an Austrian Steyr M1912 pistol. This particular pistol used by him as the founder and first Kingsman is fitted with an under barrel flare launcher, a precursor to the modern Kingsman pistol which has an under barrel shotgun feature.

Webley & Scott Metropolitan Police Model
Conrad Oxford (Harris Dickinson) carries a Webley & Scott Metropolitan Police Model pistol when operating in Russia.

Webley .455 Mk II
Orlando, Duke of Oxford (Ralph Fiennes) is seen using what appears to be a Webley .455 Mk II in a flashback to his time in the British Army during the Mahdist War.
Webley Mk II - .455 Webley
In a first-person shot, the Duke of Oxford prepares to fire his revolver at a Mahdist. The quick pacing and briefness of this scene make identification of this revolver difficult, but given its profile, the context of the scene, and the fact it fires double-action, a good guess would be the Webley Mk II.
Webley Mk VI
The Webley Mk VI is carried by Lieutenant Conrad Oxford (Harris Dickinson), Lance Corporal Archie Reid / Lancelot (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Captain Forrest (Neil Jackson) and various other British Army officers.
Webley Mk VI - .455 Webley
A young Adolf Hitler / The Moustached Man (David Kross) is seen using a Reichsrevolver M1883 to force Kaiser Wilhelm II (Tom Hollander) to abdicate.

A German trench raider wields a Bergmann MP18 during Conrad's mission to no man's land. As this scene is implied to take place in 1917, its appearance is slightly anachronistic.

Martini-Henry Mk. IV - .577-.450 caliber
The Mahdist goes down after being stabbed by the Duke's sabre. The rifle is only seen partially, but the Martini-Henry's distinctive breech can clearly be seen. This is the only moment when the rifle is still enough to be positively identified.
