WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Webley .38 Mk IV
In the opening scene a fake Royal Military Policeman (John Rhys-Davies) carries a revolver in holster. The holster appears to be a Pattern 1937 which was issued for Webley .38 revolvers so Webley .38 Mk IV would be a best guess.
In the scene in Paris, Drabble (John Vernon) is seen with an M1911A1-style pistol. Later he gives it to Ceil Burrows (Delphine Seyrig).
In the same scene Drabble's henchman carries a Walther P38.

During the hunt for Tarrant in Paris a fake policeman fires an unidentified pistol.
In the final scene Drabble (John Vernon) and Pinkus (George Lane Cooper), one of his henchmen, are armed with MAC-10 SMGs, most likely in 9x19mm version. John Tarrant (Michael Caine) manages to disarm Pinkus and uses his MAC-10 in the final shootout.
