Revolvers

British Constabulary revolver

A Belgian copy of Webley RIC revolver known as "British Constabulary" is used by Dr. Watson (Vitaly Solomin) and Inspector Lestrade (Boryslav Brondukov).

Belgian "British Constabulary" revolver, c.1894 - .380. While most "British Constabulary" revolvers has round barrels, this one has faceted barrel, like the screen gun.

Webley .455 Mk VI

A Webley .455 Mk VI revolver is used by Sherlock Holmes (Vasily Livanov). This revolver doesn't fit for 1880s-90s when the story takes place; apparently Mk VI stands in for the earlier Webley top-break models.

Reichsrevolver M1879

Reichsrevolver M1879 is the main weapon of Inspector Lestrade (Boryslav Brondukov). It is also seen in hands of Dr. Watson for a short time. This wiped to nearly white revolver appears to be the same prop, used in numerous Lenfilm productions.

Reichsrevolver M1879 Revolver - 10,6x25R.

Galand revolver

In the final scene Stapleton (Oleg Yankovsky) is armed with Galand revolver. This is most likely Russian contract Galand in 12x14mmR calibre which was put into service in Russian Navy in 1869 as "4 1/2-line Galyan revolver" and served until 1881.

Galand M1868 - 12mm (or a lesser-known 7mm or 9mm).

Sir Henry Baskerville (Nikita Mikhalkov) holds a revolver that appears to be a Rast-Gasser M1898 when he rides through the moors.

Warnant Revolver

Another Sir Henry's revolver is seen only partially but what is seen allows to guess that it can be a Warnant revolver.

For comparison: Warnant Russian Model - .44 Russian

The revolver is distantly seen on the table.

Rifles

Mosin Nagant

In one scene in "The Hound of the Baskervilles" a police constable on the railway station holds a rifle. The straight bolt handle and the typical protruding magazine allow to guess that it can be some version of Mosin Nagant Rifle, of course not fitting for that days Britain.

For comparison: Mosin Nagant M1891/30 - 7.62x54mm R
