Rifles

Several bolt action rifles with sniper scope are used in "Send in the Clowns" (S20E06). In various scenes rifles are seen in hands of Daniella Bellini (Lorraine Ashbourne), Mostyn Cartwright (Andrew Knott) and Ashley Denton (Terence Maynard). Dr. Fleur Perkins describes the murder weapon as ".240 caliber", like .240 Weatherby Magnum, but this statement may not correspond with screen used rifle(s).

Steyr Mannlicher Model L

A sniper rifle that is seen in hands of Ashley Denton) in the scene in local shooting club is supposed to be a Steyr Mannlicher Model L. It is also stated to be .240 caliber, like the murder weapon. The rifle, used by Daniella Bellini, is a different gun, according to the story, but it appears to be that the same prop is reused.

Steyr Mannlicher Model L - .22-250. Screen gun is fitted with sniper scope.

Mauser Sporter
