Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, The
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is the 2008 sequel to 1999's The Mummy and 2001's The Mummy Returns. Rob Cohen takes over as director and the Mummy character now originates from China instead of Egypt. Brendan Fraser returns as Rick O'Connell and Maria Bello takes over the role of his wife Evelyn O'Connell.
The following weapons were used in the film The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor:
Colt Detective Special
Colt 1873 Single Action Army "Peacemaker"
Rick initially 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 at the Emperor.
Evelyn O'Connell (Maria Bello) can be seen using a pair of FN Hi-Power pistols during the undead battle. Alex O'Connell (Luke Ford) also uses a pair, as well as Roger Wilson (David Calder) who uses one pistol 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 box next to his Walther P38s.
Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) carries Colt M1911 pistols and uses them on a few occasions, specifically in the Himalayas gunfight and fire at the Emperor's Terracotta warriors during the undead battle near the end of the film. M1911 pistols can be seen in the hands of various other characters throughout the film.
Norinco Type 54
General Yang (Anthony Wong Chau-Sang) uses a Norinco Type 54 pistol as his main weapon throughout the film. This is an anachronism because the Chinese didn't start manufacturing the Type 54 until the 1950s as the film is set in 1946. It is quite possible that 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 in the Shanghai Museum 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.
Alex briefly pulls the Walther P38 from his weapons box and shows the gun to Rick as the father and son compare weapon choices.
Webley Mk VI
Alex (Luke Ford) hands a PPSh-41 to Rick (Brendan Fraser) near the end of the undead battle shortly before they go after the Emperor (Jet Li). Alex can also be seen firing it from the back of the motorcycle at General Yang's soldiers while Rick drives.
Sten Mk II
The 9mm Sten Mk II submachine gun is used by Rick during the undead battle near the end of the film.
Rick (Brendan Fraser) can be seen using the M1928 Thompson during the gunfight with General Yang's soldiers in the Himalayas. 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).
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 temple with bazookas (Rick was never seen reloading his weapon).
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 8
The Remington Model 8, fitted with a scope and silencer in disassembled condition, can be seen in the weapon box of Alex O'Connell.
Several SKS semi-automatic rifles can be seen in the hands of General Yang's men throughout the film. The SKS rifles used by Yang's troops appear to be Russian SKS rifles with the "sword" bayonet. The use of the Russian SKS by 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
These bolt-action rifles also known as the "Chiang Kai-shek Rifle" and "Type 24" are 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 extensively used by both Nationalist and Communist forces during the Chinese Civil War in the 1940s.
Winchester Model 1912
Rick can be seen using the sawed-off pistol-gripped Winchester Model 1912 after taking it from the dead body of one of General Yang's soldiers in the Himalayas gunfight. Rick uses the shotgun to shoot a few of the soldiers and to fire at the Emperor to no avail.
Winchester Model 1897
Winchester Model 1887
Sawed-Off Double Barreled Shotgun
Bren Mk 1
General Yang's men can be seen firing M9 Bazookas in the Himalayas gunfight.
Mk 2 Hand Grenade
Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) can be seen throwing at least one Mk 2 hand grenade at Terracotta warriors during the undead battle. Mk 2 grenades are also used by Alex (Luke Ford) and possibly some of General Yang's soldiers.
Both Rick and Alex have a box with weapons. In all it consists of:
- One M1928 Thompson submachine gun in Rick's box.
- Two PPS-43 submachine guns in Alex's box.
- One Remington Model 8 rifle with silencer and scope in Alex's box.
