The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is the 2008 sequel to 1999's The Mummy. Rob Cohen takes over as director and the Mummy character now originates from China instead of Egypt. Brendan Fraser returns as Rick and Maria Bello takes over the role of his wife Evelyn.


The following weapons were used in the film The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor:

Contents


Handguns

Colt Detective Special

Evie (Maria Bello) briefly uses a Colt Detective Special snub nose revolver that Rick kicks to her to fire at the newly awakened Emperor in the Shanghai Museum.

Colt 1873 Single Action Army "Peacemaker"

Rick early on uses a Colt 1873 Single Action Army "Peacemaker" as an effective method to catch fish after getting frustrated while learning to fly fish back in England. He later shows this revolver to Alex when the two of them are comparing weapon choices. He also uses it to fire a few shots on the Emperor.

FN Hi-Power

Evelyn O'Connell (Maria Bello) can be seen using a pair of FN Hi-Power pistols in the film. Alex also uses a couple in the film, as well as Roger Wilson (David Calder) who uses it to threaten the O'Connells and shoot at the assassin in the Emperor's Tomb in an early scene. Alex also keeps a pair in his weapons trunk next to his Walther P38s.

The first version of the classic pistol, developed by John Browning and adopted by Belgium in 1935, the FN P-35 - 9x19 mm Para. During World War II, the Germans would occupy the Belgian firearms factories and continued to produce this gun, still called the P-35, but with Waffenamt stamps. The Design would be adopted by other countries and manufactured abroad with the generic designation simply as the "Browning High Power"

Colt M1911

Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) carries M1911 pistols in the film and uses them on a few occasions, specifically in the Himalayas gunbattle and on the Emperor's Terra Cotta warriors during the undead battle near the end. M1911 Pistols can be seen in the hands of various other characters throughout the film.

Norinco Type 54

General Yang (Anthony Wong) uses a Norinco Type 54 pistol as his weapon throughout the film. This is an anachronism because the Chinese did not start manufacturing the Type 54 until the 1950s as the film is set in 1946. It is quite possible that the the Type 54 pistol was standing in for the Russian-made Tokarev TT-33 pistol.

Smith & Wesson Military & Police

Rick carries a pair of Smith & Wesson Military & Police revolvers early in the film and brandishes them when the Emperor is awakened, firing multiple shots at him and then using them briefly on the streets of Shanghai before losing them.

Smith & Wesson Mk.II Hand Ejector

A Smith & Wesson Mk II Hand Ejector , most likely a British .455 model, is seen in Alex's weapons box.

Walther P38

Webley Mk. VI

Submachine Guns

PPS-43

Alex O'Connell (Luke Ford) arms himself with the PPS-43 sub-machine gun during the battle with Yang's soldiers in the Himalayas. Alex referred to it as a "personal assault weapon".

PPSh-41

Alex (Luke Ford) passes a PPSh-41 off to Rick (Brendan Fraser) near the end of the battle shortly before they go after the Emperor. Alex can also be seen firing it off the back of the motorcycle at General Yang's soldiers while Rick drives.

Sten Mk II

Thompson M1928

Rick (Brendan Fraser) can be seen using the M1928 Thompson in the Himalayas in a gunfight with General Yang's soldiers. The script has him say that the box magazines have 25 rounds, despite there are only 20 and 30 round box magazines. Alex tells his father that Thompson can jam on him with the 50 round drum magazine. As the Thompson is later seen with a 30 round box magazine, it can be assumed that the weapon was reloaded at some point (but it appears that it spent the 50 round drum too fast).

M1928 "Tommy Gun" with 50-round drum magazine, made famous through countless classic gangster movies - .45 ACP

In what appears to be a continuity error, the drum magazine changes into a 30 round box magazine very briefly after Yang's men hit the palace with bazookas (Rick was never seen reloading his weapon).

Rifles

Arisaka Type 99

The majority of General Yang's soldiers are seen armed with Arisaka Type 99 bolt-action rifles. The Arisaka series of rifles were very common in post-WWII China and were used by Nationalist, Communist and Warlord forces during the Chinese Civil War in the mid/late 1940s.

Remington Model 81 Woodmaster

The Remington Model 81 Woodmaster, fitted with a scope and silencer in disassembled condition, can be seen in the weapon box of Alex O'Connell.

SKS

Several SKS semi-automatic rifles can be seen in the hands of General Yang's men throughout the film. The SKS rifles used by General Yang's troops appear to be Russian SKS rifles with the "sword" bayonet. The use of the Russian SKS carbine by General Yang's troops is an anachronism because the Soviets didn't export SKS rifles to their allies (or anybody else) overseas in 1946 and all the SKS rifles produced in the USSR were made only for the Soviet military at this period of time.

Winchester Model 1894

Evie (Maria Bello) uses this 30-30 lever-action rifle as her weapon of choice to fend of General Yang's soldiers in the Himalayas.

Type Zhongzheng

These bolt-action rifles also known as the "Chiang Kai-shek Rifle" and "Type 24" is carried and used by General Yang's soldiers throughout the film. The Type Zhongzheng rifle is a licensed, Chinese copy of the Mauser Standard Model rifle, the forerunner to the Mauser Karabiner 98k rifle, and was used extensively by both Nationalist and Communist forces during the Chinese Civil War in the 1940s.

Shotguns

Winchester Model 1912

Rick can be seen using the sawed off pistol gripped Winchester Model 1912 in the third Mummy film after taking it off the dead body of one of General Yang's soldiers in the gunfight in the Himalayas, Rick uses it to shoot a few of the soldiers and to fire at the Emperor to no avail.

Winchester Model 1897

Winchester Model 1887

The Winchester Model 1887 shotgun can be seen in the weapon box of Rick O'Connell but he never fires it. This is presumably the same one he used in The Mummy Returns.
