Check out ZULU. In some of the scenes of volly fire they are using bolt actions; probably cos keen shooters like us have all the authentic Martinis in private collections :shock: :shock:

Then watch it again - you'll note quite a few .303 Martini's, some Westley Richards ZAR's, even a Swinburn in the hands of lieutenant what's-his-name again... Also, the Webley Mk VI is a bit 'modern' too...

My wife has a book titled "Roman Soldiers Don't Wear Watches". I think some folks go the movies just to catch the mistakes.

Does anyone remember the HEAT OF THE SUN mini-series? It took place in Nairobi in 1931. There were quite few No4Mk1 rifles used by the native police, but the No4s were not available until 1939. A minor error in an otherwise excellent series.

Just watched a WWII documentary on the History channel.
Seems the Germans were using left handed Kar98's in a couple of scenes.
MLV, like you, I used to go to the movies just to pick apart the continuity mistakes made with firearms. Would you believe the Strand theatre in Livingston?
