Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson (Sherlok Holms i doktor Vatson)
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson (Sherlock Holms i Doktor Watson) is a Soviet 1980 (filmed in 1979) mini-series, the first part of 1979-1987 TV series Priklyucheniya Sherloka Holmsa i doktora Vatsona, a screen adaptation of a number of Arthur Conan Doyle's novels and stories, directed by Igor Maslennikov and starring Vasily Livanov as Sherlock Holmes and Vitaly Solomin as Dr. Watson. It contains two feature-length episodes: "Acquaintance" ("Znakomstvo"), based on A Study in Scarlet and The Adventure of the Speckled Band, and "Bloody Inscription" ("Krovavaya nadpis"), based on A Study in Scarlet.
The following weapons were used in the film Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson (Sherlok Holms i doktor Vatson):
A Nagant M1895 revolver is used by Sherlock Holmes (Vasily Livanov) in "Bloody Inscription" when he "draws" on the wall Queen Victoria's monogram ("VR" - "Victoria Regina"). In this episode the revolver is incorrectly called ".38". Nagant M1895s are also seen in hands of Inspectors Lestrade (Boryslav Brondukov) and Gregson (Igor Dmitriev).
A Belgian copy of Webley RIC revolver known as "British Constabulary" is used by Sherlock Holmes in "Bloody Inscription".
Smith & Wesson .44 Double Action
Dr. Watson (Vitaly Solomin) uses a Smith & Wesson .44 Double Action (most likely not original S&W but a European, possibly Spanish clone). In one scene in "Acquaintance" Sherlock Holmes incorrectly called Watson's revolver "Webley-Scott .38 army model". The same revolver is briefly seen on Holmes' table in "Acquaintance".
Note: see additional images on talk page.
Reichsrevolver M1879 is seen among Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson handguns in one scene. This wiped to nearly white revolver appears to be the same prop, used in numerous Lenfilm productions.
Merwin Hulbert Pocket Revolver
A Merwin Hulbert pocket revolver is seen in hands of Joseph Stangerson (Viktor Aristov) when he is disarmed by Jefferson Hope (Nikolai Karachentsov) in "Bloody Inscription". The revolver appears to be same prop that was seen in another Lenfilm production, Krotkaya (1960).
Two police constables, accompanying Lestrade and Gregson, carry revolvers that aren't seen clear enough for positive identification. One of these guns may be a British Constabulary (see above) but it's only a guess.
