The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003)

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 up 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 weapons were used in the film The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen:

Contents


Handguns

Webley-Green

Allan Quatermain (Sean Connery) uses a Webley-Green revolver as his sidearm throughout the film. Dante (Max Ryan), the 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.

Mauser C96

One of the Fantom's assassins uses a Mauser C96 pistol when confronting Quatermain's friend Nigel (David Hemmings) in Kenya. A pistol was apparently loaded with only one round as it clicks empty after firing.

Luger P08 Artillery

Dorian Gray (Stuart Townsend) uses an anachronistic gold-plated Luger P08 Artillery in one scene. 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

In addition to his Winchester Model 1873, Special Agent Tom Sawyer (Shane West) carries what appear to be two nickel Colt New Army revolvers.

Submachine Guns

Sten Mk II

The crew of Captain Nemo (Naseeruddin Shah) are seen armed with ornately decorated Sten Mk II submachine guns in both Venice and at the Fantom/M's secret factory/hideout in Mongolia.

The Thompson submachine gun is used as the basis for a number of the Fantom's automatic rifles.

Uzi

The Uzi is used as a basis for the automatic weapons carried by the Fantom's men. They are fitted with early model detachable wooden buttstocks.

Shotguns

Double Barreled Shotgun

The Elderly Hunter (Robert Vahey) uses his Double Barreled Shotgun to exchange fire with the Fantom's men in Kenya. Quatermain is also seen using this shotgun.

Rifles

Lee-Enfield Mk I

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. Lee-Enfield rifles would later be used by the Fantom's men (disguised as British soldiers) when they abducted German scientists in Berlin.

Double Barreled Express "Matilda" Rifle

Allan Quatermain (Sean Connery) carries a double barreled exposed hammer Express "Matilda" Rifle as his primary firearm. It appears to have barrels between 28 and 30 inches in length.

Winchester Model 1873

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.

AK Rifle

In addition to the Thompson and the Uzi, an AK-47-type rifle is another firearm used as the basis for a number of automatic rifles carried by the Fantom's men. The foregrip is similar to the grip of a Mauser C96.
