Puppet Master III: Toulon's Revenge

Corrected entry: When Major Krause and his men storm Toulon's hideout in the bombed ruins, some of the soldiers carry Karabiner 98k bolt action rifles. But as one of them shoots at Toulon and Dr. Hess, he fires the shots in too rapid a succession for a bolt action. The Germans did have semi-automatic rifles in 1941 - the Gewehr 41 Walther and Mauser rifles -, but these were both quite bulky and recognizable, and all of these were reserved for action at the Eastern front.

Correction: The German soldiers do carry semi-automatic rifles, namely the Gewehr 41 Walther.

Trivia: The filmmakers wanted to make a puppet that would be the perfect "opposition" to the evil Nazis in the film. They came up with the idea for a cowboy puppet, since he could represent a popular American archetype, and of course the Americans opposed the Nazis in the war. They then combined the cowboy with an old idea for a six-armed ninja puppet, resulting in the popular puppet "Six Shooter."
