The following weapons were used in the television series Agatha Christie's Marple:



Webley .38 Mk IV

Webley .38 Mk IV revolvers are seen in hands of Ladislaus Malinowski (Ed Stoppard) in "At Bertram's Hotel" (S03E01), Bobby Argyle (Tom Riley) in "Ordeal by Innocence" (S03E02), and Nat Fletcher (Sam Reid) in "Greenshaw's Folly" (S06E02).

Enfield No.2

In the scene in theater in "Greenshaw's Folly" (S06E02), a stagehand uses an Enfield No.2 revolver to make a gunshot behind the scenes when stage actor Nat Fletcher "fires" his Webley revolver on scene.

Toy cap revolver

In a flashback scene in "The Sittaford Mystery" (S02E04), set in 1927, Clive Trevelyan (Timothy Dalton) kills his companion Prof. Percehouse in archeologist expedition in Egypt. His revolver looks like some top-break model with nickel finish but due to a large flash from the hammer the gun can be identified as a kind of toy cap gun. It is used probably because the gunshot is made point-blank to the actor.

Note the large flash from the hammer.

Unidentified revolver

Edgar Lawson (Tom Payne) holds a nickel plated top-break revolver in "They Do It with Mirrors" (S04E03). Generally this gun looks similar to Smith & Wesson or Iver Johnson guns but it has different hinge and a very long extractor shroud under the barrel, similar to Smith & Wesson Model 3 but uncommon for compact top-break revolvers.

A close view of the barrel. Note the teardop shaped (rather than round) hinge and long extractor shroud.

Beretta M1934

Emily Trefusis (Zoe Telford) owns a nickel plated Beretta M1934 with pearl grips in "The Sittaford Mystery" (S02E04). During the forensic experiment and in the depiction of the murder in "The Secret of Chimneys" (S05E02), Walther PPK (see above) is replaced with Beretta M1934 due to a continuity error. The pistol has threaded barrel and is seen with and without sound suppressor.
