The following weapons were used in the film Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson (Sherlok Holms i doktor Vatson):

Contents


Nagant M1895

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).

British Constabulary

A Belgian copy of Webley RIC revolver known as "British Constabulary" is used by Sherlock Holmes in "Bloody Inscription".

Belgian "British Constabulary" revolver, c.1894 - .380. While most "British Constabulary" revolvers has round barrels, this one has faceted barrel, like the screen gun.
Three revolvers are seen on the table: a Smith & Wesson .44 Double Action, a British Constabulary, and a Reichsrevolver M1879, when Watson starts cleaning of the guns.

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.
