The Mummy is the 1999 feature film adaptation of the Universal monster character that was directed by Stephen Sommers. Brendan Fraser stars in the film as Rick O'Connell, a former soldier who in 1926 joins an expedition to investigate the possible existence of a supernatural Egyptian book, which may have the power to unleash a force that exists within the confines of a buried body. The film's cast includes Rachel Weisz, John Hannah, and Arnold Vosloo as the Mummy. The film spawned two sequels: 2001's The Mummy Returns and 2008's The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. The character of the Mummy would subsequently be rebooted as part of a "Universal Monsters" film franchise with a 2017 feature film adaptation starring Tom Cruise.

The following weapons were used in the film The Mummy:


Chamelot-Delvigne Model 1873

Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) uses a pair of Chamelot-Delvigne Model 1873 revolvers throughout the film. During the fight in Hamunaptra, Jonathan Carnahan (John Hannah) grabs them out of Rick's shoulder holsters and fires them at Imhotep's (Arnold Vosloo) mummified priests.

Rick often dual-wields revolvers and has a unique way of loading them by spinning the cylinders. Maybe if the ejector rod has been pulled back and the loading gate is open, he has to point the loading gate downwards, using the force of gravity and cylinder spinning to ensure all cartridges are ejected.

Colt New Service

Beni Gabor (Kevin J. O'Connor) uses a Colt New Service, while Mr. Daniels (Corey Johnson) carries and uses two revolvers. Warden Gad Hassan (Omid Djalili) also pulls out a Colt revolver during the brief standoff with the American treasure hunters in Hamunaptra.

Colt M1911

Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) and Jonathan Carnahan (John Hannah) use Colt M1911 pistols to battle the attacking Tuaregs. Rick most notably preparing one on the boat to Hamunaptra. Mr. Burns (Tuc Watkins), one of the American treasure hunters, is also seen using a Colt M1911. It should be noted that the screen gun used is a period authentic pre-1924 M1911, not an M1911A1 (noted by the lack of a curved mainspring housing and no relief cuts around the trigger guard on the frame. Also, the grip safety spur is shorter than on the A1 while the actual trigger itself is longer). This is a rare case of Hollywood getting something right.

Winchester Model 1897

Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) uses a Winchester Model 1897 shotgun in some scenes. Evelyn Carnahan (Rachel Weisz) is also seen using the shotgun. The shotgun is later given to Ardeth Bay (Oded Fehr) to hold off Imhotep's mummified priests.

Lebel Mle. 1886

At the beginning of the film, Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser), Beni Gabor (Kevin J. O'Connor) and other members of the French Foreign Legion use Lebel 1886 rifles. Normally these rifles hold eight rounds, but the ones used in the film appear to be reloaded after every shot (Fraser does this several times during the course of the opening scene). This is accurate to the doctrine of the time; the Lebel was fitted with a magazine cutoff that prevents loading from the magazine, allowing single shots to be loaded and fired. As the Lebel has a tubular magazine that is difficult and time-consuming to load under pressure, and there were concerns regarding excessive ammunition consumption, many military rifles of the period were fitted with magazine cutoffs and soldiers were under orders to load and fire single shots while saving the magazine as an emergency reserve for close combat and assaults.

The Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk III* was extensively used in the film, seen in the hands of British soldiers, the Medjai warriors, and the Tuaregs attacking the French Foreign Legion at the beginning of the film.

Lewis Gun
