Around the World in 80 Days (2021)
Around the World in 80 Days is a 2021 German-Italian-French television series based on Jules Verne's novel of the same name. The series is produced as a joint project of the European Alliance by the public broadcasters Rai, France Télévisions, and ZDF. In 1872, when a newspaper article claims that one can circumnavigate the globe in 80 days, the London eccentric Phileas Fogg bets his friend Bellamy at the Reform Club for 20,000 pounds that he will be able to do just that. He calculates the day of his return to London to be Christmas Eve. He sets off with his new servant Passepartout, a dark-skinned Frenchman, joined by budding journalist Abigail. Abigail documents events during their journey together for a colomne.
The following weapons were used in the miniseries Around the World in 80 Days:
Chamelot-Delvigne Mle. 1873
An anachronistic Chamelot-Delvigne Model 1873 is used by a Parisian Commune member in Ep. 01. A Lefaucheux Revolver would be more accurate for this time period.
What appears to be a Tranter M1868 is wielded by Jane Digby (Lindsay Duncan) in Ep. 03.
Smith & Wesson No.3 Russian Model (Commercial Version)
Sheik Medjuel El Mezjuel Mezrab (Faical Elkihel) hands over a Smith & Wesson No.3 Russian Model to Passepartout (Ibrahim Koma) in Ep. 03 to defend himself from ambushes in the dessert.
An unknown revolver is seen in Ep. 04 in Lieutenant Bathurst's (Charlie Hamblett) holster. At the end of Ep. 05, Thomas Kneedling (Anthony Flanagan) is seen with another revolver while threatening Phileas Fogg.
Colt Single Action Army
A Colt Single Action Army is wielded by Bass Reeves (Gary Beadle) in Ep. 07 that is referred as "Single Action Colt" by Abigail Fix (Leonie Benesch) which he confirms and calls it a "Peacemaker". Ambrose Abernathy (John Light) is also seen with an SAA. The SAA was only produced one year later.
Colt 1849 Pocket
Bass gives Abigail a Colt 1849 Pocket revolver which he took from Ambrose. It is called a ".22 Colt Pocket Revolver".
Two of Abernathy's men have Colt 1851 Navy revolvers.
Gras Mle. 1874
In Ep. 01 Gérard (Loic Djani) uses a Gras Model 1874 standing in for an accurate Chassepot 1866 rifle in an attempt to assassinate the French President.
Lebel Mle. 1886
Another out-of-time rifle but of French origin is the Lebel 1886 which is used by the French Gendarmerie. This is most likely because not so many Gras rifles were available.
Remington Rolling Block
A Remington Rolling Block variant is seen with Sheik Medjuel El Mezjuel Mezrab in Ep. 03.
As the trio travels through India in Ep. 04, a garrison of British-Indian troops can be seen with Martini-Henry Rifles. The use of these rifles in November 1872 seems correct, since the Mk. I was introduced one year earlier but the soldiers also appear to be armed with the improved Mk. II and III variants. British soldiers in Hong Kong in Ep. 06 are also armed with Martini-Henrys.
Winchester Model 1866
A Winchester Model 1866 "Yellow Boy" rifle is carried by Sally (Elena Saurel) in Ep. 07.
Winchester Model 1866 Carbine
Bass Reeves uses a Winchester Model 1866 "Yellow Boy" carbine.
Monsieur Lome (André Penvern) owns a Blunderbuss with which he surprises the trio.
