Young Sherlock: The Mystery of the Manor House is a British 1982 8-part mini-series, directed by Nicholas Ferguson and starring Guy Henry as young Sherlock Holmes. The story shows the rising of gifted 17-year-old schoolboy Sherlock as a detective.

The following weapons were used in the film Young Sherlock: The Mystery of the Manor House:

Webley Bulldog

Young Sherlock Holmes (Guy Henry) trains in shooting with a Bulldog-style revolver. The gun has unfluted cylinder and fires in DA mode.

Nickel British Bulldog. Like the sceen gun, this sample has an unfluted cylinder.

Tower Percussion Pistol

Jasper Moran (Christopher Villiers) holds a percussion cap pistol in several scenes. The gun looks similar to Tower Percussion Pistol but due to its too large size and caliber it may be a mockup, based on a sawed-off and visually modified shotgun.

Percussion Shotgun

Jasper Moran (Christopher Villiers) is also seen with a Double Barreled Percussion Shotgun.

Double Barreled Percussion Shotgun - 10 gauge
Jasper Moran cleans a shotgun. The shape of hammers and ramrod, seen below the barrels, allow to identify the gun as percussion cap.
Another view of the shotgun.
Jasper Moran holds the shotgun under his arm when giving orders to a manservant. A small part of the buttstock can be seen near Moran's shoulder, so the gun isn't open, unlike break-action shotguns.
Hammers of the shotgun are seen.
