The Hound of the Baskervilles is a British 1959 screen adaptation of the famous detective novel by Arthur Conan Doyle. It is directed by Terence Fisher and stars Peter Cushing as Sherlock Holmes, André Morell as Doctor Watson, and Christopher Lee as Sir Henry Baskerville. Unlike most screen versions of the novel, this one is more a horror movie than a detective one.


The following weapons were used in the film The Hound of the Baskervilles:

Contents


Revolvers

Webley No.5 Express

Dr. Watson (André Morell) carries a Webley No.5 Express revolver. Due to a continuty error, this gun is also seen in hands of Sherlock Holmes (Peter Cushing) instead of previously seen revolver.

Unidentified revolver

Sherlock Holmes (Peter Cushing) holds an unidentified revolver. It appears to be some version of solid-frame Webley but has a slender frame and thin barrel in comparison with such revolvers as No.5, R.I.C. or Bulldog.

Muskets

Several muskets are seen on the wall in Baskerville Hall.

Two carbines (1 and 2), most likely flintlock, are seen on the wall in the scene, depicting Sir Hugo Baskerville's crime (unlike the novel, it is set in 1740). Two long guns (3 and 4) in the top row are seen very unclear, and it's hard to say about their locks.
One of the long guns is seen partially.

For comparison: Flintlock Jezail Musket
A musket in jezail style is seen over the door. It lacks any kind of lock and is possibly non-firing replica, intended only for decoration use.
