Shōgun is a 2024 American historical drama television series based on the 1975 novel of the same name, which was also previously adapted as a 1980 miniseries.

The following weapons were used in the miniseries Shōgun:


Sea Service 1716 Flintlock Pistol

A Sea Service Flintlock Pistol is seen with Pilot Major John Blackthorne (Cosmo Jarvis) in "Anjin". While befitting of seamen, it's anachronistic by more than a century. A more period fitting and pragmatic choice would have been an Elizabethan era matchlock pistol and for a more fancier option, a wheellock pistol. Consort Usami Fuji (Moeka Hoshi) uses it briefly in "The Eightfold Fence".

Queen Anne Flintlock Pistol

A Queen Anne Flintlock Pistol is used by Vasco Rodrigues (Nestor Carbonell) as his personal sidearm, it appears to be a Pedersoli replica. Like its name suggests, it is anachronistic and should be a XVI century matchlock or wheellock instead.

Vasco can't help, but be cocky in this one. Understandable, given that he is a Spaniard who somehow obtained an English pistol from the future.



The Tanegashima is a recurring weapon in the show; its use in pre-Meiji Japan was recorded back from 1543 when Japan acquired arquebuses from Portuguese sailors.

Cannons of what looks like Malay Archipelago types such as cetbang or lela are confiscated from John's ship, being used by Yabushige's forces. It is not specified whether these are captured by the privateers during raids in South Asia or are meant to be genuine European guns.
