What is written on the gun? I can't read. B 88?
Ok. Ok. That is a Walther P 38.

what about this one?
Looks like a 7.92mm Volksturmgeshchuss.
That's a picture of the Gustloff VG 1-5 Volksgewehr carbine. It was designed for civilian use, exact numbers produced are unknown, and original examples are today worth a fortune.....
nice job...now what about this one?
Japanese Type 'O'...?
Close! type 100 Hyaku-shiki kikan-tanju
"The Type 100 was a well made gun, albeit with several strange features, including a complicated ammunition feed device that, for safety purposes, ensured that a round was completely chambered before firing, a complex system compounded by the curious bottle shaped round the Type 100 used. Atypically for a submachine gun, a bayonet lug was fixed under the barrel.
Despite its shortcomings and complexities, the Type 100 featured sophisticated sights and a high quality chrome plated barrel to aid cleaning and reduce wear. Some models also featured a bipod or a complicated muzzle brake.
A number of Type 100 variants were produced during the course of the war; one with a folding stock and another that could be disassembled and stored in a pouch worn on the front of the torso for paratroopers (few with the folding stock were made as it weakened the weapon's structure in combat situations) and a 1944 version that was greatly simplified in order to hasten production at a time when Japan was being pushed into retreat across the Pacific theatre and demand for submachine guns was at an all time high. The 1944 variant was slightly longer, featured simple iron sights. Corners were cut in production, leaving many Type 100s with roughly finished stocks and poorly welded parts."
Ah well - you learn something every day ! I must confess that my knowledge of Japanese smallarms is very limited....

Too easy. The Johnson LMG.
