Webley .38 Mk IV Pocket Model
In the scene that depicts Holmes' deduction about the personality of the villain, Mrs. Martha Hudson (Kelly Macdonald) holds a Pocket model of Webley .38 Mk IV revolver with pearl grips (of course, not fitting for 1881 when the story is set). Similar revolver is seen in hands of one of Mrs. Hudson's henchmen, "Charlie Chaplin" (Paul Cassidy).
