I'm making a ww2 thing and I'm using Nazi weapons and I'm not sure if I have to ask the company to use them or if its ok to just add them without any problem. I really just wanna know if its ok because I've seen many other games add those types of weapons but I have heard of companies making agreements with gun manufacturers.

So if you want to use a Schmeisser MP in your game, you would have to wait until 70 years after the death of the last person involved in its design. \$\endgroup\$
