I have completed season 1, and have started working on season 2. Can anyone identify this sporting rifle that Queen Elizabeth uses in season 2? - Anthony
- Maybe a sporterized Mauser? --Funkychinaman (talk) 20:28, 4 June 2018 (EDT)
- That was my first thought as well, but the cocking piece and safety are wrong. I'm now leaning towards a Remington 721, but I can't call it for certain. - Anthony DuClare (talk) 08:30, 5 June 2018 (EDT)
- Got it - a Parker-Hale M81. Indeed a Mauser 98-derived action, but it has a very distinctive safety and bolt. - Anthony DuClare (talk) 16:44, 5 June 2018 (EDT)
Though never seen used (or even seen) on-screen, gelignite plays a prominent role in "Gelignite" (S1E06). Gelignite is a nitroglycerin-based high explosive with a gel-like consistency, and it is popular in the UK for mining and quarrying. It was also used in many bombings during The Troubles, and the British government published instructions for how to construct gelignite-based IEDs in manuals for the World War II-era Home Guard.
