Wind That Shakes The Barley, The
The following weapons were used in the film Wind That Shakes The Barley, The:
Lee Enfield SMLE No. 1 Mk. III
The Short Magazine Lee-Enfield is the standard rifle of the British army, Black & Tans, Auxiliaries and later the Free State's National Army. It is also the most commonly used rifle by the IRA.
Mauser Gewehr 98
Mauser Gewehr 1898 rifles are used by IRA members throughout the film, most notably by the training officer at the beginning of the film.
Mauser Kar 98a
Damien (Cillian Murphy) carries a Mauser Kar 98a throughout the film.
Mauser Karabiner 98k
A Mauser Karabiner 98k is seen in several scenes in the film - an anachronism as the 98K was not introduced until 1935, and the film is set in 1920-1922. It is possible that the armorer did not have access to enough First World War Mausers.
Damien (Cillian Murphy) carries a Webley .455 Mk IV revolver throughout the film.
The Webley .455 Mk VI is the most commonly seen revolver in the film, carried by British officers, Black and Tans, Auxiliaries and several IRA members including Teddy (Padraic Delaney).
S&W Mk.II Hand Ejector
Dan (Liam Cunningham) carries a Smith & Wesson Mk II Hand Ejector .
Colt Official Police
The Colt Official Police is carried by some IRA members.
Colt New Service
Colt New Service is carried by some IRA members - it's impossible to tell from the film, but it is most likely a British army-issued revolver in .455 Webley.
Mauser C96 Broomhandle
The Mauser Broomhandle can be seen in several scenes used by IRA members - the Mauser was a popular sidearm among IRA members, who referred to it as the "Peter the Painter automatic", after a famous anarchist who allegedly carried one.
FN Model 1910
An IRA member can be seen with a Browning 1910 during the pub scene, though it is never fired.
A Vickers Gun is seen mounted on a truck driven by Auxiliaries.
The Lewis Gun is carried by the IRA flying column in their ambush of Auxiliaries.
Special: Hurling Stick
True to life, many IRA soldiers are seen training using hurling sticks as dummy rifles for lack of the real thing.
