Revolvers

Webley revolvers

Webley Revolvers are seen in hands of various characters, including one of the main characters, Detective Sergeant Paul Milner (Anthony Howell). They are used as murder weapons in "The White Feather" (S1E2) and "A Lesson in Murder" (S1E3). Both Webley .38 Mk IV and Webley .455 Mk VI are used. It's not always possible to determine exactly what model is used.

Hand Grenades

In "A Lesson in Murder" (S1E3) a Mk 2 hand grenade is used as a booby-trap (though a Mills Bomb would fit better for the place and time).
