Nagant M1883

In "Oganga, The Giver and Taker of Life", Indiana Jones (Sean Patrick Flanery) is seen carrying what appears to be a Belgian army Nagant M1883 revolver as he leads troops in East Africa. The use of this revolver in a production is somewhat surprising as these weapons are extremely rare.

Rast-Gasser 1898

An Austrian Rast-Gasser 1898 revolver is seen in the hands of French officers. This is presumably intended to be a captured weapon - interestingly the Rast-Gasser 1898 chambered a round quite close to the French M1892 revolver and could use French ammunition.

Rifles

Lebel 1886

When Indiana Jones fights with the Belgian Army during World War I, French soldiers and Belgian troops are seen carrying Lebel 1886 rifles. The Belgian Army in WW1 actually used Mauser M1889 rifles, however these are extremely rare and it is unlikely any could be obtained. Due to supply shortages, the Belgian Army did briefly use some Lebel rifles loaned from France.

Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III*

The Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III* rifle is seen in the hands of British and British Commonwealth soldiers during World War I, especially in the hands of the Australian Light Horsemen in the British campaign against the Ottoman forces in the Middle East. They are also seen carried by Irish rebels and British troops in the Easter Rising.

The rifle is seen in the hands of both Indy and Remy in "The Phantom Train of Doom".


Mauser Kar 98K

The primary weapon used by the German infantrymen is the WW2-era Mauser Kar 98K, likely as sufficient WW1 Gewehr 98s could not be obtained.

Submachine Guns

Jones goes on a recon mission as a gunner/photographer and he is armed with two mounted Sa.25/26 SMG's, apparently as a mockup for the Lewis gun normally carried by recon planes at the time.

Machine Guns

Schwarzlose M1907

The Austrian Schwarzlose M1907 Machine Gun is used by German forces in "Trenches of Hell". It is most likely a Czech ZB53 modded with a water jacket to imitate one as the muzzle would be slightly lower.

Maxim MG08

Lewis Gun (mocked up DP-28)

The Lewis Gun appears to be the machine gun is used by Indiana Jones and Remy from a hot air balloon in "The Phantom Train of Doom". To all connoisseurs, the use of the Lewis Gun by German forces during World War I was not out of the question, as the gun was captured and used by these forces. Upon closer inspection, this weapon actually appears to be a DP-28 visually modified to resemble the Lewis. In the same episode, Margarete Trappe (Lynsey Baxter) is seen flying a biplane with a similar machine gun mounted.

Russian Maxim

A Maxim is seen used in several episodes set during World War I. The machine gun is seen on the German train in "The Phantom Train of Doom" and used by Capt. Schiller (Daniel Craig) in "Daredevils of the Desert". The barrel shroud resembles the Russian version of the Maxim instead of the MG08 that was more commonly used by German forces during the war.

Other
