Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, The
The following guns were used in the film The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
Rick (Brendan Fraser) can be seen using the M1928 Thompson in the Himalayas in a gunfight with General Yang's soldiers. The script has him say that the box magazines have 25 rounds, despite there are only 20 and 30 round box magazines. He was correct with his 50 round drum. It jammed on him in the middle of the fight, which pissed Rick off that his son, Alex, was correct. We never see him reload to the box magazine, but from watching, he spent the 50 round drum too fast.
Due to continuity errors, the drum magazine changed into a 30 round box magazine very briefly after Yang's men hit the palace with bazookas.
Alex (Luke Ford) passes a PPSh-41 off to Rick (Brendan Fraser) near the end of the battle shortly before they go after the Emperor. Alex can also be seen firing it off the back of the motorcycle at General Yang's soldiers while Rick drives.
Remington Model 8
The Remington Model 8,fitted with a scope and silencer in disassembled condition, can be seen in the weapon box of Alex O'Connel.
Norinco Type 54
General Yang uses a Norinco Type 54 pistol as his weapon throughout the film. This is an anachronism because the Chinese did not start manufacturing the Type 54 until the 1950s as the film is set in 1946. It is quite possible that the the Type 54 pistol was standing in for the Russian-made Tokarev TT-33 pistol.
Several SKS semi-automatic rifles can be seen in the hands of General Yang's men throughout the film. The SKS rifles used by General Yang's troops appear to be Russian SKS rifles with the "sword" bayonet. The use of the Russian SKS carbine by General Yang's troops is an anachronism because the Soviets didn't export SKS rifles to their allies (or anybody else) overseas in 1946 and all the SKS rifles produced in the USSR were made only for the Soviet military at this period of time.
The 9mm Sten Mk. II Sub-Machine gun can be seen in the hands of Rick during the undead battle near the end of the film.
The Browning M1919 can be seen in the back of General Yang's vehicle being fired by a soldier at Rick and Alex as they escape on a motorcycle.
Winchester Model 1912
Rick can be seen using the sawed off pistol gripped Winchester Model 1912 in the third Mummy film after taking it off the dead body of one of General Yang's soldiers in the gunfight in the Himalayas, Rick uses it to shoot a few of the soldiers and to fire at the Emperor to no avail.
Rick O' Connell carries M1911 pistols in the film and uses them on a few occasions, specifically in the Himalayas gunbattle and on the Emperor's Terra Cotta warriors during the undead battle near the end.M1911 Pistols can be seen in the hands of various other characters throughout the film.
Evelyn can be seen using a pair of Inglis Browning Hi-Power pistols in the film. Alex also uses a couple in the film, as well as Roger Wilson who uses it to threaten the O' Connells and shoot at the assassin in the Emperor's Tomb in an early scene. Alex also keeps a pair in his weapons trunk next to his Walther P38s.
These are more accurately described as the FN GP-35. Browning Hi-Power was not used to name the weapon until well after 1946. Also note anachronism, FN switched from internal to external extractor around 1963. Picture above is external.
Alex briefly pulls the Walther P38 from his gun chest and shows the firearm to Rick as the father and son compare weapon choices.
Smith & Wesson Military & Police
Rick carries a pair of these Smith & Wesson Military & Polices early in the film and brandishes them when the Emperor is awakened, firing multiple shots at him and then using them briefly on the streets of Shanghai before losing them.
Smith & Wesson Mk.II Hand Ejector
A Smith & Wesson Mk.II Hand Ejector, most likely a British .455 model, is seen in Alex's weapons box.
Webley Mk. VI
The Webley Mk VI revolver can be seen briefly in the hands of Jonathan in the Himilayas gunfight scene but he never fires it.
Colt 1873 Single Action Army
Rick early on uses a Colt 1873 Single Action Army as an effective method to catch fish after getting frustrated while learning to fly fish back in England. He later shows this revolver to Alex when the two of them are comparing weapon choices. He also uses it to fire a few shots on the Emperor.
Winchester Model 1897
The Winchester Model 1897 shotgun can be seen in the weapon box of Rick O'Connell but he never fires it.
Winchester Model 1887
The Winchester Model 1887 shotgun can be seen in the weapon box of Rick O'Connell but he never fires it.
Colt Detective Special
Winchester Model 1894
Type Zhongzheng rifle
These bolt-action rifles also known as the "Chiang Kai-shek Rifle" and "Type 24" is carried and used by General Yang's soldiers throughout the film. The Type Zhongzheng rifle is a licenced, Chinese copy of the Mauser Standard Model rifle, the forerunner to the Mauser Karabiner 98k rifle, and was used extensively by both Nationalist and Communist forces during the Chinese Civil War in the 1940s.
Arisaka Type 99 rifle
The majority of General Yang's soldiers are seen armed with Arisaka Type 99 bolt-action rifles. The Arisaka series of rifles were very common in post-WWII China and were used by Nationalist, Communist and Warlord forces during the Chinese Civil War in the mid/late 1940s.
General Yang's men can be seen firing M9 Bazookas in the film.
