Hound of the Baskervilles, The (1983)
The Hound of the Baskervilles is a British 1983 made for TV detective movie, based on the famous novel by Arthur Conan Doyle. It is directed by Douglas Hickox and stars Ian Richardson as Sherlock Holmes and Donald Churchill as Dr. Watson. This is the first of two 1983 Holmes movies with Ian Richardson, followed by The Sign of Four.
The following weapons were used in the film The Hound of the Baskervilles:
Webley .455 Mk VI
In several scenes, including the night scene in Baskerville Hall, Dr. John Watson (Donald Churchill) holds a Webley .455 Mk VI revolver, not fitting for the Victorian era.
Webley "WG" Army Model
In the scenes on the marshes Dr. Watson's revolvers switches to a more appropriate Webley "WG" Army Model. Sherlock Holmes (Ian Richardson) takes Watson's revolver when he pursues Stapleton in the final scene.
Webley .455 Mk III
In the final scene Jack Stapleton (Nicholas Clay) uses a compact Webley revolver of .455 series. Mk III seems to be the best guess though Mk IV or Mk V are also possible.
Lee-Metford Mk. II / Lee-Enfield Mk. I
Soldiers, patrolling the countryside during the hunt after escaped convict Selden, carry Lee-Metford or pre-SMLE Lee-Enfield rifles (Lee-Metford Mk. II* and Lee-Enfield Mk. I are externally identical).
Double Barreled Shotgun
Double Barreled Shotguns are seen in hands of police constables, patrolling the countryside.
A cane gun is used by disguised Stapleton (Nicholas Clay) in an attempt on Sir Henry Baskerville. The cane gun is loaded with a revolver cartridge.
