Jamaica Inn is a 2014 British three part mini series, a period drama adapted from Daphne du Maurier's 1936 novel. This is the third screen adaptation of the original novel after the Alfred Hitchcock's 1939 film starring Maureen O'Hara and the 1983 ITV mini series starring Jane Seymour.

The following weapons were used in the miniseries Jamaica Inn:


New Land Pattern Flintlock Pistol

Joss Merlyn (Sean Harris) holds a New Land Pattern Flintlock Pistol with the flat heel of the grip, typical for the East Indian Pattern. The pistol is definitly a modern replica, may be a non firing one.

Hopeless Joss holds the pistol. The flat heel of the grip with lanyard ring is seen.

Sea Service 1756 Flintlock Pistol

In the climactic scene Vicar Francis Davey (Ben Daniels) holds a Sea Service Flintlock Pistol. The screen gun is a non-firing replica that slightly differs from the original pistol. When Davey "fires" it, he only cocks the hammer and presses the trigger, without any imitation of loading. Flashes on the lock are seen but the pistol doesn't produce muzzle flame.
Very similar model can be seen in Henry Krank catalogue (63P) but the manufacturer isn't mentioned.

Davey aims at Mary. In this scene his pistol switches between the Sea Service and the Heavy Dragoon (see below) models.

Heavy Dragoon Flintlock Pistol

Due to continuity errors, Davey's pistol several times switches from the Sea Service to the Heavy Dragoon pistol and back againt. This Heavy Dragoon pistol isn't seen "firing". A long flintlock pistol that is seen in hands of a customs officer is also supposedly to be a Heavy Dragoon (no belt hook can be seen, so it's hardly a Sea Service).

What is supposed to be a Heavy Dragoon pistol is seen in hands of a customs officer at the background.
Davey's pistol switches from the Sea Service to the Heavy Dragoon (and then back to Sea Service). Note the lack of the belt hook that presents on the Sea Service pistol.
Davey's pistol switches to the Heavy Dragoon once again.

Double Barreled Flintlock Pistol

During the prison break, Jem Merlyn (Matthew McNulty) takes two Double Barreled Flintlock Pistols from the customs officers' armory. He uses this guns in the climactic scene. These pistols are definitly modern replicas, may be non firing ones.

18th Century Double-Barrelled Flintlock Pistol.

Unknown Long Guns

During the ambush on the wreckers' gang, customs officers fire some long guns. They are seen at great distance and cannot be identified. Flintlock Muskets would be correct weapons for this scene, but it's unknown what guns were used.
