League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, The
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is the 2003 film adaptation of the graphic novel series created by Alan Moore. The film stars Sean Connery as the legendary adventurer Allan Quatermain, who teams with other famous literary characters to face a mysterious foe bent on starting a world war. The film is set in the year 1899, but in keeping with the fantasy aspect of the film, features several weapons that could be considered anachronistic.
The following firearms were used in the film The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen:
Webley Green revolver
Allan Quatermain (Sean Connery) uses a Webley Green revolver as his sidearm throughout the film. Dante (Max Ryan), Fantom's second in command, while disguised as a British Army officer is armed with a Webley Green revolver while the Fantom kidnapped German scientists in Berlin.
One of the Fantom's assassins uses a Mauser C96 pistol in Kenya when confronting Quatermain's friend Nigel (David Hemmings). It was apparently loaded with only one round as it clicks empty after firing.
Luger P08 Artillery
Dorian Gray used an anachronistic gold plated Artillery Luger P08. The Luger's design was first patented in 1898, one year before the film takes place. However, it did not enter production until 1900, making it unlikely that Dorian would own one (on the other hand, Dorian is working for a criminal mastermind who profits from wartime technology so maybe it was designed by the great professor).
Colt New Army
Lee-Enfield Mk.I rifle
Long Lee-Enfield Mk.I rifles are first seen carried by British soldiers in their futile attempt to stop the tank breaking into the Bank of England at the beginning of the film. Long Lee-Enfield rifles would later be used by the Fantom's men (disguised as British soldiers) in Berlin when they abducted the German scientists.
Double Barreled Express "Matilda" Rifle
Quatermain (Sean Connery) carries as his primary firearm a double barreled exposed hammer "Express Rifle". It appears to have barrels between 28 and 30 inches in length.
Winchester 1873 lever-action rifle
Special Agent Tom Sawyer (Shane West) of the United States Secret Service carries two engraved Winchester Model 1873 lever-action rifles. The Winchester is used by both Quatermain and Sawyer throughout the film.
Sten Mk II submachine gun
Thompson submachine gun
The Thompson submachine gun is also used as the basis for a number of the Fantom's automatic rifles.
Uzi submachine gun
In addition to the Thompson and the AK rifles, the Uzi is another firearm used as a basis for the automatic weapons carried by the Fantom's gunmen. They are fitted with early model detachable wood buttstocks.
12 Gauge Double Barreled shotgun
The Elderly Hunter (Robert Vahey) in Kenya uses his 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun to exchange fire with the Fantom's men. Quatermain is also seen using the shotgun.
