Contents


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.

British Constabulary revolver

A Belgian copy of Webley RIC revolver known as "British Constabulary" is used by Dr. Watson's (Vitaly Solomin).

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

Reichsrevolver M1879

Inspector Lestrade (Boryslav Brondukov) carries a Reichsrevolver M1879. This wiped to nearly white revolver appears to be the same prop, used in numerous Lenfilm productions.

Nagant M1895

Police constables are armed with Nagant M1895 revolvers during the arrest of Jonathan Small. Of course, this weapon doesn't fit for the British police of that (and of any other) time.

Nagant M1895 - 7.62x38N. This is a post-1930 version.
