Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond is a four-part miniseries that aired in 2014, presenting the slightly fictionalized exploits of Ian Fleming (Dominic Cooper), the author who created James Bond, during the decade leading up to his penning the first 007 novel. The series covers Fleming's life from 1938 to 1952 including his multiple affairs and his service for British Naval Intelligence during World War II.

The following weapons were used in the miniseries Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond:

Contents


Handguns

Luger P08

German officers carry Luger P08 pistols throughout the series, including one officer (Zsolt Trill) in Lisbon who has his Luger taken from his holster by Ilsa Kovacs (Bernadett Ostorhazi). In the second episode, a French Nazi collaborator (János Füzi) draws one at the docks and holds it on Commander Fleming.

Luger P08 - 9x19mm. This is a 1917 dated handgun, thus it is a World War I firearm.

Enfield No. 2 Mk.1*

Sub Lieutenant Hepworth (Harry Treadaway), the British Royal Navy lieutenant who accompanies Commander Fleming in France, draws and fires a Enfield No. 2 revolver in the second episode.

In the third episode, Ian Fleming (Dominic Cooper) carries a Webley .38 Mk IV when undergoing an assassination mission.
