The Wind That Shakes the Barley (2006)

The following weapons were used in the film The Wind That Shakes The Barley:

Lee Enfield SMLE No. 1 Mk. III

The Short Magazine Lee-Enfield is the standard rifle of the British army, Black & Tans, Auxiliaries and later the Free State's National Army. It is also the most commonly used rifle by the IRA.

Mauser Karabiner 98k

A Mauser Karabiner 98k is seen in several scenes in the film - an anachronism as the 98K was not introduced until 1935, and the film is set in 1920-1922. It is possible that the armorer did not have access to enough First World War Mausers.

Mauser C96 Broomhandle

The Mauser Broomhandle can be seen in several scenes used by IRA members - the Mauser was a popular sidearm among IRA members, who referred to it as the "Peter the Painter automatic", after a famous anarchist who allegedly carried one.
