A great and pretty comprehensive list, though I think I can help you out with the proper designations for some of them. (I'll just list them as in your list and add details to the name after an :arrow:)
USA:
Rifle - Springfield :arrow: Springfield M1903
Sniper rifle - M1903 Springfiel w/scope :arrow: Springfield M1903A4
SMG - Thompson :arrow: Thompson M1A1
LMG - .30 cal MG :arrow: Browning M1919A6
HMG - .50 cal MG :arrow: Browning M2
Automatic rifle - Browning Automatic Rifle :arrow: M1918 B.A.R.
Pistol - Colt 45 :arrow: Colt M1911
AT - Bazooka :arrow: M1 Bazooka (early version) M9 Bazooka (late version)

Britain:
LMG - Vickers .303 calibre :arrow: Lewis Gun
HMG - I don't know? :arrow: Vickers .303
(You might be right there also was a light version of the Vickers, but this is the more widely found way as far as I know)

German:
Rifle - Mauser K98 :arrow: Mauser Karabiner 98k (derived from the 'Mauser Gewehr 1898')
SMG- MP40 :arrow: MP38 (early) / MP40 (later) Schmeisser
MG - MG42 :arrow: There actually were two major machine guns, MG34 (early in the war and used on tanks) and MG42. Both used as light and heavy machine guns.
Pistol - Luger :arrow: Luger P08

Russian:
Rifle - mosin nagant bolt rifle :arrow: 1891 Mosin Nagant
SMG - PPSH :arrow: PPSh 41
:arrow: LMG - DP2 (Degtyarev [?])
:arrow: Rifle - Tokarev SVT40 (automatic, similar to M1 Garand or Gewehr 43)

-----

Hope this helps a bit.

Yes, I believe the Bren was portable and part of standard infantry teams (or at the least it could be found in them).

No. The Bren was the standard squad (Brits called them sections) LMG throughout the war.

The Lewis was a heavy (as in it weighed a lot) drum fed LMG/MMG left over from WW1 and used by Home Guard etc. Not really a weapon for Firefight.

The Vickers was a water-cooled .303 calibre tripod mounted MG used in MG battalions and infantry battalion support companies. The Brits classed these as medium MGs to indicate it wasn't .50 cal. German tripod-mounted MGs tended to be called "heavy" because their high rate-of-fire compensated for their rifle-calibre ammunition. They couldn't punch through masonry and light armour like the .50 cal, however.

You learn something new every day... thanks for correcting that. Does anybody know what the 'P' in 'DP2' stands for?

yes the bren lmg was portable and a infantry weapon (like the B.A.R.)
the mg42 with tripod and ammo was light enough to be carried by 2 men unless there was extra ammo needed
the russians also had a lmg the Degtyarev-Pekhotny 28
