The following firearms were used in the film Australia:


Contents


Winchester Model 1895

Drover (Hugh Jackman) carries a Winchester 1895 lever action rifle in the carbine configuration. Since Australia is a member of the British Empire/Commonwealth and allied with Great Britain it's probably a safe bet that the carbine is in .303 British. Probably the most popular sporting caliber in many of the British Commonwealth nations for many decades.

Winchester Model 1895 carbine .30 Cal - Commercial Version commonly used by the last remaining Cowboys. The Model 1895 carbine was carried by the old Arizona Rangers in 30/40 government. This is a new manufactured version of this classic rifle.

After speaking with the film's armourer (John Bowring), I can confirm that both Winchester Model 1895 carbines were chambered in .303 British. [Peter Collins]
