: : I don't know if enough people were looking at my first message so I am posting a new one.
: : I need information and pictures of Indy's revolver from Raiders and ToD. I think that he has a Smith & Wesson N frame Triple Lock in 38-40 calibre, and a Colt New service in .45 Colt. However both these revolver's are available in many other calibers, even the .45 ACP (the colt 1911 bullet, with half moon clips)
: : Would anyone with correct information please reply to this message or send me an email at email@example.com
: : Also sny information on pictures of Indy with these guns or picture of these gun (off the internet) would be useful.
: : Umm...haven't you seen the previous messages in this forum? There are no pictures but a few contributers to this page have produced volumes of information regarding conversions, calibers, production notes, etc. Guys like Max Schulte and Michaelson(?) come to mind. It's all here (less the pictures) just go to the Webley strings....-CP
As far as I know Indy is using two different guns in "Raiders of the
Lost Ark". Like you already mentioned the N-Frame Triple Lock
Smith & Wesson revolver but in .38-44 calibre with DA system. It seems
to be 4" or even shorter.
I never had one in my hands I've only seen it on pictures or in the
movie but I think Lucasfilm added a custom-made front sight. It seems
to be much bigger than the "original". No idea why they did this.
Anyway, he is using the Colt 1911 in .45 ACP as well during the
gunfight in the bar.
I really don't know much about the revolver used in Temple of Doom
but I'd also say it's a Colt New Service in .45 ACP.
I have some pictures of the Webley but none of the previous guns.
Anyway, I'll keep my eyes open...
If you have any further questions feel free to ask. Maybe Michaelson
will have additions or clarifications.
