The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes is a British 1994 TV series, starring Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes and Edward Hardwicke as Dr. Watson. Six short stories by Arthur Conan Doyle were adapted into the series.

The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes is a final installment in Granada Television TV series, starring Jeremy Brett as Holmes, including also The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (1984-1985), The Return of Sherlock Holmes (1986-1988), and The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes (1991-1993) TV series, and two feature-length made for TV movies: The Sign of Four (1987) and The Hound of the Baskervilles (1988).

The following weapons were used in the television series The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes:


Webley .455 Mk VI

Mosin Nagant M1891

A flashback scene in "The Golden Pince-Nez" (S01E03) shows the events, set in Russia about twenty year prior the events of the episode. Russian soldiers or police (their uniform is absolutely fictional) carry Mosin Nagant M1891 rifles while dispersing the workers' demonstration in Sankt-Peterburg. Most rifles are of Infanrty model, some original M91s and some in 1910 modification. The scene turns out to be set in 1880s, so M1891 rifles doesn't fit for that time.
