The following weapons were used in the film Azumi:


Matchlock Pepperbox

Kanbê Inoue (Kazuki Kitamura) uses the very rare but historically-interesting Japanese matchlock pepperbox. Although it may seem like movie fiction, multi-charged revolving-barrel medieval Japanese firearms genuinely exist in very rare numbers.

Hammer with a match is a good seen.
Barrels revolving can be seen...

Samurai guarding the fort use Tanegashima muskets.

Nagato (Hideo Sakaki) gives the grenade to Nagara (Yûma Ishigaki) who later uses it to blow up the enemy fort.
