The following weapons were used in the film High Road To China:


Luger 1908 Parabellum

At the beginning of the movie a Luger is used by one of the thugs trying to stop Eve Tozer (Bess Armstrong).

Luger P08 - 9x19mm.

Mauser C96 Broomhandle

One of the other thugs uses a Mauser C96 "Broomhandle"

Mauser C96 "Pre-War Commercial" - 7.63x25mm Mauser

Smith & Wesson M&P Revolver

Eve Tozer (Bess Armstrong) uses a Smith & Wesson M&P when escaping from an Afghan tribe. Later an M&P is used by Kim Su Lee (Ric Young).

Colt Model 1878 Double Action Revolver

Patrick O'Malley (Tom Selleck) and Eve Tozer (Bess Armstrong) both use the same Colt 1878 Double Action Revolver. It can be identifed as an 1878 by the bird-head grips seen briefly when carried by Bradley Tozer (Wilford Brimley) in a holster before he hands it to O'Malley.


Chamelot-Delvigne Model 1873

A Chamelot-Delvigne Model 1873 is used by an Afghani tribesman.

Chamelot-Delvigne Model 1873 (bare metal) - 11mm.


M24 Serbian Mauser

During the climactic battle between the warlord's troops and the villagers Mauser rifles are seen being used by both sides. Since the bulk of the movie was filmed in Yugoslavia I'm assuming that the Mauser Rifles are the M24 Serbian Mauser.

Lee-Enfield No. 1 Mk III*

A Lee-Enfield No. 1 Mk III* is seen slung over Kim Su Lee's (Ric Young) back.

Lee-Enfield No. 1 Mk III* - .303 British

Machine Guns

Lewis Gun

A Lewis Gun is mounted to the top wing of Patrick O'Malley's (Tom Selleck) plane. It is used both in aerial combat and taken off for infantry action. The plane of Eve Tozer is also equipped with one, but never used.

Maxim Gun

It appears that two Maxim MG08 Machine Guns are mounted onto a plane. Rather than the special aerial models it looks like two infantry models were mounted onto the plane. In addition a Maxim MG08/15 is used in an anti-aircraft role by the Warlord's troops during the climactic battle.
