Double Barreled Shotgun
A Double Barreled Shotgun is used as a trap in Avril Mant's room.
Reverend Turner (Hans Nielsen) uses a harpoon gun to commit a murder. Actually, shooting a speargun on land hardly would be practical, much less lethal.
When Irving (Peter Vogel) finds Brooks' assistant Molly Dobson (Trude Herr) searching Lord Mant's documents, he aims a pocket pistol at her. Then the gun turns out to be a lighter pistol.
