Mafia III is an open-world action-adventure video game, and a sequel to Mafia II. It is developed by Hangar 13 and published by 2K Games, and was released in October 2016 for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The following firearms make an appearance in the video game Mafia III:
AMP Auto Mag Model 180
The AMP Auto Mag Model 180 appears as the "Clipper .44" and is rewarded by Thomas Burke for the third racket takeover. It is mildly anachronistic for the game's late 1960s setting, as AMT didn't begin producing AutoMags until 1970. Oddly, the gun's icon in the UI is a Wildey Magnum.
AMP Auto Mag Model 180 - .44 AMP
Lincoln takes his shiny new Auto Mag out for a spin for one of Vito's side missions.
Before aiming it out into the bayou at passing gators.
Lincoln threatens his Auto Mag with his Grease Gun.
The Browning Hi-Power is available for use in the game as the "Elling 9mm" and used heavily by mobsters in Tickfaw Harbor, Downtown, and Barclay Mills. It can also be seen among other weapons in a stash from one of the promotional videos.
Browning Hi-Power .9x19mm
Lincoln glowers at the screen and gives us a close look at his Hi-Power.

And racking the slide letting us see the barrel.
While wandering some dock yards, Lincoln stumbles on a Hi-Power all alone.
Colt Commander (not usable)
Donovan uses what appears to be a Colt Commander with a suppressor in the main game final cutscene. This pistol is, like the Tokarev, not player-usable.
Colt Combat Commander - .45 ACP
The Colt M1911A1 is one of many available handguns in Mafia III, known as the "Masterson Pistol". There are two silenced variants in-game, the first being the "Silenced Masterson" which is given as a favor from Vito Scaletta during his first racket takeover. The second is "Silentium", which is the same stat wise as the normal silenced M1911 but with fancy engraving that comes with the "Judge, Jury & Executioner" weapon pack DLC. No matter what pistol Lincoln is carrying, during cut scenes he will be seen with the 1911.
Lincoln hides at a local dock union with his M1911.
Lincoln aims the Colt M1911A1, revealing that the hammer is down which would render the gun unable to fire. All of the in-game semi auto handguns are rendered as DAO.
Lincoln reloads with a mag drop clipping through his hand.
Before racking the slide, revealing that despite the hammer issue, it has a fully rendered barrel. Most of the other semi auto handguns have rendered barrels.
Lincoln has the Hi-Power finish off its ancestor M1911.

Lincoln gets sneaky with his suppressed M1911.
Before aiming at some dastardly brickwork.

An air pistol resembling a Diana 5G Air Pistol is found in-game as the "Dormer B128", used as a tranquilizer gun for Bounty Hunting missions added in the Stones Unturned DLC.
Lincoln gets to sneaking in the least subtle outfit known to man, with his trusty Diana 5G to tag and bag anyone who sees him.

Reloading the "Dormer" by cracking open the barrel...
And stuffing a dart in the pipe.

High Standard HDM with integrated silencer - .22 LR
Lincoln holds the HDM while doing some sneaky business.
Before threatening the road with it.
Having terrified the asphalt, he drops his mag.
Before executing it for knowing too much.

The MAB PAP F1 appears as the "Blackburn FAF-33" as the highest tier semi-auto handgun, commonly used by mobsters in the late game areas of the French Ward, Frisco Fields, and Southdowns.
Lincoln sneaks into his old bar with his F1, nicely modeled for a rare pistol.
Lincoln aims the MAB PAP F1 in the same vague direction of a dead man.
Not letting the dead get to him, Lincoln drops the mag.
Lincoln reloads the MAB PAP F1, revealing that some dastardly mobster has stolen his barrel and his hands keep clipping into the gun.
Lincoln looks down on the F1 while on a dock.
Smith & Wesson 39
The Smith & Wesson 39 is known in-game as the "Alfredsson M419". It's given free when the arms dealer van becomes available and very commonly used by enemy mobsters in areas such as Delray Hollow, Pointe Verdun, and River Row.

Smith & Wesson Model 19
The Smith & Wesson Model 19 appears in-game as the "Alfredsson M200", the standard sidearm of New Bourdeax's Police Department and an uncommon sight with mobsters. The M200 does only 38% damage per shot, compared to the Pheonix's 47%, implying that the former is used with .38 and the latter with .357.
Smith & Wesson Model 19 - .357 Magnum

Tokarev TT-33 - 7.62x25mm Tokarev. Pre-1947 version.
Polish M48 pistol with a compensator.
Aldridge holds his custom TT-33 on a hostage, trying to remain threatening even with the hammer up on a single action only pistol.
All shotguns, when hip-fired, play a pump racking sound after each shot, even including the lever action 1887, break action Lupara and the semi auto 1100.
The Ithaca 37 appears in-game as the "Cornell 40", used by mid-game mobsters.
Ithaca Model 37 riot with pistol grip - 12 gauge
Lincoln prepares to breach the old bar with his Ithaca 37.
Lincoln aims the Ithaca 37, although it's best for close encounters.
Sending a shell down range and launching a shell magically from the side.
Not questioning how he broke the mechanics of the Ithaca 37 to do that, Lincoln just stuffs shells into the tube.
Lincoln looks down on the Ithaca 37.
The Mossberg 500 with an extended magazine tube appears as "Riot 550" and used by late-game mobsters.
Mossberg 500 with high-capacity magazine tube - 12 gauge
Lincoln gets up close and personal with his 500.
Aiming his weirdly shiny boomstick, vaguely familiar to a 500 Mariner which would be anachronistic for the game's 1968~ setting.
Firing reveals, voila! A working bolt that moves when the pump is racked.
Having found his gun works, Lincoln tops his shotgun off.
Before closing the gun up for more work.
Lincoln uses his shotgun to interrogate another shotgun.
A "Barker 390" pump-action shotgun can be used and is commonly found with low level mobsters. It appears to be a Remington 870, and not the Mossberg 500AT some have claimed it to be, by the rounded trigger guard and the shorter magazine cap.
Remington 870 Police Magnum Riot Shotgun - 12 gauge
Lincoln takes his new-found 870 out for a spin.
Lincoln aims the 870 at some dead mobsters.
Firing it reveals that the bolt and pumps do actually move.

Remington Model 1100 - 12 gauge
Lincoln prepares to breach and clear with his new 1100.
Lincoln aims his 1100, marveling at its slightly too large charging handle that wouldn't actually allow the shotgun to properly cycle.
Reloading by stuffing a shell in the tube.
And underhand racking of the charging handle.
Lincoln stares at the dropped shotgun.
Sawed-off double barrel shotgun
The classic Lupara appears in-game as the "Lupara" as one of the two sidearm shotguns.

Before threatening the local pipes with it.
Having blown them away, he breaks the gun open and spits out 2 shells.
Lincoln aims down at a former mafioso owned Lupara.
"Barker 390 (Gator Skin)"
Supposedly a customized variant of the "Barker 390" (Remington 870) shotgun in the base game, the shotgun that comes with the Family Kickback Pack appears to be a mash-up of the in-game Remington 870 (receiver, magazine, and barrel) and Mossberg 500 (safety, triggerguard, and furniture). The result is vaguely reminiscent of the (anachronistic) Mossberg 590.
Mossberg 590 with 5-round magazine tube and speedfeed stock - 12 gauge
Lincoln sneaks around with his Gator gat.
Lincoln uses his tactically camo'd bolt action to look upon the Gator, and see how it's more Mossberg than Remington.
Winchester Model 1887
A Winchester Model 1887 resembling the configuration from Terminator 2 is available for use in Mafia III, and a rare sight with mid game mafia goons as a sidearm shotgun. Lincoln can flip-cock the gun in a manner similar to Arnold Schwarzenegger albeit with one thumb given the smaller lever loop. It appears as the "Elmwood 1925" with a special version with the Judge, Jury & Executioner Weapon Pack, the "Exterminatore".

Having poked it from far away, the reload begins with a mag removal.
And a rack of the charging handle.
While sneaking around a racket, Lincoln eyes up a dropped M12.
Heckler & Koch MP54
The Heckler & Koch MP54 appears in-game, modeled on the very first MP5 prototype, the MP54. It appears in the game as "Deutsche M11B" and is acquired as a favor from Cassandra for the third racket takeover. While the MP54 isn't necessarily anachronistic, it was first adopted by the German Federal Police in 1966, which is two years prior to the game's setting, it's more or less anachronistic to see in the hands of random street thugs in 1968.
Heckler & Koch MP54 Earliest prototype of the H&K MP5 - 9x19mm
Lincoln holds his MP54, enjoying his new toy.
Before threatening the brick work.
Reloading begins by removing the mag.

The M1A1 Thompson appears in-game as the "Trench 1938" and used heavily by early game enemies. With the "Family Kick-back" pre-order pack, a special version of the M1A1 was included called the "Trench 1938 Drum" , having a vertical grip much like the earlier M1921 Thompsons, but still built into the M1A1-style forestock.

Before dropping the drum.
Shoving a new one in, against all the mechanics of the Thompson's drum.
Lincoln uses his sidearm to put this poor mutated M1A1 out of its misery.
M3 Grease Gun
The M3 "Grease Gun" appears as the "M1N8", used primarily by mobsters in the mid-game. A suppressed version is offered by Cassandra in the first racket takeover as a favor.
M3 "Grease Gun" - .45 ACP. The later model M3A1 would eliminate the crank lever for cocking the bolt, and instead used a simple hole in the bolt for the shooter to use their finger.
Lincoln holds his Grease Gun while out in the Hollow.

Lincoln reloads by removing the mag.
And yanking the charging handle.

And locking the bolt back. Note it is actually modeled with an open bolt, which is a nice touch.
Having been fooled by the UI image, Lincoln aims at his MAC-10 to make sure it isn't an anachronistic Cobray clone. Thankfully, it isn't. It's just weirdly big.
The Uzi appears in the game as the "Binya", a late-game single handed SMG rarely wielded by mafiosos and in certain locations.
Lincoln holds his Uzi while running around an enemy racket.
Lincoln aims the Uzi at a dead mafioso.
Before reloading by yanking the old mag out.
And opening the bolt, revealing the Uzi is rendered with a moving bolt despite appearing as closed bolt in-game.
Lincoln gazes upon a dropped Uzi.
Sa. Vz.61 Skorpion
The Sa. Vz.61 Skorpion appears in game as the "Czech Ver. Ba-65", rarely used by mobsters in the early game and one of the first sidearm SMGs available for use.
Sa. Vz.61 Skorpion - .32 ACP
Lincoln sneaks around a racket with his Skorpion.
Threatening the pipes with 20 rounds of .32 ACP.

A version painted black with tribal markings appears as the "Black Sacrament", rewarded for completing the Signs Of The Times DLC.
Lincoln holds the AKM while sneaking around Vito's dockside restaurant.
Lincoln aims the AKM, note the safety selector smack on safe.
That doesn't stop him from reloading by removing the mag.
And doing the underhand technique 50 years before it'd be popular.
Lincoln gazes upon the AKM, giving us a good view of its weird kit bashing.
The Colt M16A1 appears in-game as the "Stromer .223" as a favor from Burke during the fifth racket takeover or in a CIA Safehouse in the Stones Unturned DLC.

A heavily embellished version comes with the Judge, Jury and Executioner Weapon Pack, known as the "Praecisione .30".

And yanking the charging handle in an overhand technique.
Lincoln interrogates an M1 Carbine, letting us get a good look.

Lincoln aims the M1 at a heavily shot piece of wall.
Reloading the M1 by yanking the charging handle open in a slightly uncomfortable looking underhand move.

Lincoln uses his AK to interrogate the M1 about its magical disappearing sling.
The M14 appears as the "Automat SG" and is used by late-game mobsters although it does spawn in a few early game locations. It's notable for using its own separate ammo type, so you can only get ammo from other M14s with it.

Lincoln holds the M14 while hiding around Sammy's Bar.
Lincoln aims the M14 after shooting another random pedestrian.
After a job well done, he treats his M14 by taking the mag out with some good trigger discipline.

Lincoln holds his sniper M14 after completing the favor.
Lincoln aims the M14 in normal iron sight mode.
Before switching to the sniper mode and remembering it's a night vision scope. This reticle is shared by all scoped weapons in-game.

Feeding some rounds out of his pocket.
And closing it when he's done.
Lincoln stares at the scoped M1903A1 with his Model 70.

Having survived a gun fight, Lincoln eyes up a mounted M2.
Ignoring Donovan, he "takes aim" with the turret.

With his mode of transportation deleted, he takes the time to look at the rather shiny model of the China Lake.
