: I have been reading over the forum trying to find information on
: the revolver's that Indiana Jones carried. From what I have read he appears to have a Smith & Wesson N frame Triple lock in .38-44 (although by Janes guide to handguns make's no mention of this gun in this calibre) a Colt New service in .45 and a Webley Mk VI.

: I was hoping that someone could clear up this information for me and tell me what gun's he has in Raider's and ToD. I know he is using a webley in The last Crusade.

: Some other comments about guns, The mp 38 submachinegun is in 9mm Parabellum, same as the Luger p'08 and the walther p-38, not 7.62 mauser. The guys in the bout scene in Crusade could not have been using a sten gun because the sten mk i appeared in 1941. German Karabiner Gew 98K rifles use 7.92x57mm Mauser ammunition, not .308. And in the scene with the British in ToD there is another mistake in addition to the jamming extra. The Rifle's they are using are MK 4 lee-enfield's which didn't appear until 1940, they can be distinguished by the position of the rear sight.

: Once again if anyone has any correct info on Indy's revolver it would be much appreciated

Well, he uses the Smith & Wesson in Raiders, the Colt New Service in
ToD and the Webley in LC. I don't know much about the previous
revolvers but the Webley is indeed the MK VI in .45ACP, 6in.

You're right concerning the Enfields used in ToD. The different versions
can also be distinguished by the sights: The MKIV has a large aperture
battlesight while the previous version was fitted with an U-noth
rearsight and a blade foresight.
Btw, you're right about the K98 calibre as well. There are actually
.308 versions but they weren't used by the 'Wehrmacht'. Sorry,
