Sherlock Holmes (Sherlok Holms) is a Russian 2013 TV series, directed by Andrey Kavun and starring Igor Petrenko as Sherlock Holmes and Andrey Panin as Dr. Watson. The series use plots of various Arthur Conan Doyle's works but shows them in a very non-canon way. In the series Holmes is twenty-seven years old genius thinker but awkward and intense man while Watson is much elder man, a veteran Army medic, who teaches Holmes shooting and boxing. Trying to make a name for himself as a writer, Watson begins describing the detective cases, solved by Holmes, often embellishing the real events.
Note: according to the interview of director Andrey Kavun, the guns in the series are from Lenfilm prop stores, so many of these revolvers are doubtless same guns that were seen in earlier Lenfilm series about Holmes and Watson, Priklyucheniya Sherloka Holmsa i doktora Vatsona (1980-1987).
The following weapons were used in the television series Sherlock Holmes:
Webley .455 Mk VI
Dr. Watson's (Andrey Panin) "old army revolver" is a Webley .455 Mk VI (this model was adopted only in 1915 and doesn't fit for the time of the events). Watson's revolver is seen in hands of Sherlock Holmes (Igor Petrenko) in several episodes. Except for the duo, Webley Mk VI is used by Morstan (Valeriy Zaytsev) in "Rock, Scissors, Paper" and Gilbert Roy (Leonid Timtsunik) in "The Mistresses of Lord Maulbray". It's worth noting that in the scene in "Halifax" when the Webley is shown firing, it works only as single action revolver.
Note: see additional images in talk page.
Webley Mk. VI - .455 Webley
Watson cocks the hammer of his Webley when he hears suspicious noise from Holmes' room (Ep.1-2 "221B Baker Street").

), a member of gang of cabmen, fires at Holmes and Watson in Ep.3-4 "Rock, Scissors, Paper". Watson identified the sound of the gunshot as "Webley Mk III".

When Watson prepares for the duel with Capt. Sholto, he unloads his revolver...
...and loads it with a single cartridge.
Gilbert Roy (Leonid Timtsunik
) holds a Webley in Ep. 7-8 "The Mistresses of Lord Maulbray". In previous moment he had a Nagant M1895
, then his revolver switches to a Webley Mk VI and then to a Reichsrevolver M1883
due to several continuity errors.

Rast-Gasser M1898 revolvers are widely used throughout the series, notably by Inspector Lestrade (Mikhail Boyarskiy) and Professor Moriarty (Aleksey Gorbunov). Certainly a single prop is used. Like many other guns in the series, Rast-Gasser is out of time and out of place.
Note: see additional images in talk page.

Note: see additional images in talk page.

Percussion Pocket Pistol
Irene Adler (Lyanka Gryu) owns a Percussion Pocket Pistol. Sherlock Holmes (Igor Petrenko) uses Irene's pistol in Ep.15-16 "The Baskerville Hound". According to the interview of director Andrey Kavun, this gun is a specially made for filming replica of a pistol from a private collection.

A number of long guns with flintlocks and percussion cap locks is seen in the flashback scene in Ep.3-4 "Rock, Scissors, Paper" that depicts the activities of 5th Northumberland Fusiliers in Afghanistan. These guns are mockups, supposedly fitted with genuine locks (such mockups can be seen in other Lenfilm productions). Possibly they are used to portray Snider-Enfields, due to the lack of more suitable props. Anyway, flintlock and percussion cap lock muzzleloading guns were too antique for British troops of that time.
A number of long guns with attached bayonets in center.
Two soldiers at the right hold long guns with bayonets.
An Oriental style musket is seen in Capt. Sholto's house in Ep.3-4 "Rock, Scissors, Paper". It's hard to say what kind of lock it has (if any). Possibly this is a non-firing decorative "wall-hanger".
