Journey to China: The Mystery of Iron Mask
Journey to China: The Mystery of Iron Mask (Russian title: Тайна печати дракона; Tayna pechati drakona, Chinese title: 龙牌之谜; Lóng pái zhī mí) is a 2019 cooperative Chinese/Russian/USA fantasy thriller, sequel of Forbidden Empire.
Note: This movie exists in three versions - English, Chinese and Russian. The Russian one is used for the screencaps.
The following weapons were used in the film Journey to China: The Mystery of Iron Mask:
The movie is set in an ambiguous "18th century". However, considering that the British troops wear pattern 1742 uniforms, it is safe to assume that it takes place somewhere around the mid-18th century, the Seven Years' War period most likely. This would be considered when determining whether or not a particular weapon is anachronistic.
Austrian Model 1798 Flintlock Pistol
Miss Dudley (Anna Churina) uses an Austrian Model 1798 Flintlock Pistol during shooting training. The weapon is most likely anachronistic as the movie is set in an ambiguous "18th century" as mentioned above.
Several characters use various types of Flintlock Pistols.
French Style Flintlock Pistol
While dressed as a sailor, Miss Dudley wields what appears to be a French-made flintlock pistol. It resembles the pistolet modèle An XIII or modèle 1822, though the plate on the left side doesn't match so it might be some kind of generic replica.
British Style Flintlock Pistol
A flintlock pistol with a British style grip nut is seen tucked into the belts of Russian sailors.
Kolser "Antique Pistol" (Lucknow 1776 Flintlock Pistol Replica)
The Kolser "Antique Pistol" which is actually a replica of the Indian flintlock pistols from Lucknow made circa 1776 is used by Miss Dudley and is later taken from her by Li Hong. A similar pistol is seen being used by a Russian sailor.
A Cossack-looking sailor has what appears to be a Wheellock Pistol tucked into his belt.
Augsburg Multibarrel Turnover Flintlock Pistol
Jonathan Green (Jason Flemyng) continues to use his Kolser Augsburg 3-barrel turnover Flintlock Pepperbox replica, until it is taken from him by the brigands. At the film's climax, this gun can be seen tucked intothe belt of a Russian sailor.
Flintlock Boxlock Pocket Pistol
The Flintlock Pocket Pistol is the personal sidearm of the captain (Martin Klebba).
Double-Barrel Flintlock Pistol
Several Russian sailors can be seen armed with Double-Barrel Flintlock Pistols. Both over-under and side by side handguns appear.
Denix Charleville Musket Replica
Charleville Musket replicas made by Denix are used by British and Russian soldiers. The use of the French muskets by both the British and Russian troops is historically inappropriate. While later Russian muskets such as the M1808 were based on the French M1777 pattern, they would be anachronistic for the mid-18th century setting. Russians of this period would be armed with either M1753 or M1763 Russian muskets.
Brown Bess Flintlock Musket
At least one Russian soldier is armed with the historically inappropriate for 18th century Russians Brown Bess Flintlock Musket.
A Nock Gun is seen at one point. The weapon might be anachronistic for the mid-18th century setting as it was designed in 1779 in reality.
Miss Dudley briefly holds what looks like either a French Model 1777/1786/1806 flintlock carbine or the extremely rare Russian M1809 musketoon, but she never fires it. The carbine is fitted with a barrel clamp similar to the one on the Austrian pistol listed above, so this might be some kind of a replica like the Denix replica of the French Flintlock Carbine Model 1806.
Several guns can be seen during the prologue from the first movie.
Numerous naval cannons can be seen several times.
Several cartoon guns are seen during the animated scene at the opening and during the end credits.
