Talk:Young Indiana Jones Chronicles: Volume 3, The
The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles was a television adventure series that aired on ABC for 2 seasons from 1992-1993 and later as 2 hour television movies in 1994. From executive producer George Lucas, the series followed the early life of archaeologist Indiana Jones during the first half of the 20th century. For a major part of the series, Indiana Jones (here played by primarily by Sean Patrick Flanery) is seen fighting for the Belgian Army under an assumed name during World War I. Harrison Ford would later reprise his role as Indy in the episode "Mystery of the Blues". The series' episodes would be compiled into 2 hour movies and released on DVD in 2007 (the names of the episodes seen here reflect the names used on the released DVD's).
The following weapons were used in the series The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles:
Colt Single Action Army
The Single Action Army revolver is used by several Mexican revolutionaries who ride with Pancho Villa in "Spring Break Adventure". Also in the episode, Lt. George S. Patton (Stuart Milligan) is seen carrying two SAA's in dual holsters that he pulls in a bar.
Smith & Wesson Model M1917
In "Spring Break Adventure", Det. Frank Brady (James Handy) is armed with a Smith & Wesson M1917 that he fires on Dr. Hanson. Note, that this particular episode takes place in 1916, making the use of the revolver an anachronism.
An Austrian Rast-Gasser 1898 revolver is seen in the hands of French officers. This is presumably intended to be a captured weapon - interestingly the Rast-Gasser 1898 chambered a round quite close to the French M1892 revolver and could use French ammunition.
In "Oganga, The Giver and Taker of Life", Indiana Jones (Sean Patrick Flanery) is seen carrying a Belgian army Nagant M1878 revolver as he leads troops in East Africa. The use of this revolver in a production is somewhat surprising as these weapons are extremely rare.
In the episode "Mystery of the Blues", Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) is able to wrest away the Colt Trooper from the man who wants the ancient tribal pipe. Unfortunately, Indy finds out that it's unloaded.
A Mauser C96 is seen used by Germans most notably in the episodes set in East Africa and Europe.
Mauser Pocket Pistol
FN Model 1910
In "Daredevils of the Desert", Indy is armed with a Ruby Pistol.
Webley Mk VI
When Indiana Jones fights with the Belgian Army during World War I, French soldiers and Belgian troops are seen carrying Lebel 1886 rifles. The Belgian Army in WW1 actually used Mauser M1889 rifles, however these are extremely rare and it is unlikely any could be obtained. Due to supply shortages, the Belgian Army did briefly use some Lebel rifles loaned from France.
Mauser Kar 98K
The primary weapon used by the German infantrymen is the WW2-era Mauser Kar 98K, likely as sufficient WW1 Gewehr 98s could not be obtained.
Mauser M1916 Guardia Civil
Mauser Gewehr 1898
Belgian Mauser 1889
Turkish 1903 Mauser Rifle
Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III*
The Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III* rifle is seen in the hands of British and British Commonwealth soldiers during World War I, especially in the hands of the Australian Light Horsemen in the British campaign against the Ottoman forces in the Middle East. They are also seen carried by Irish rebels and British troops in the Easter Rising.
In "Mystery of the Blues", a mobster opens fire with a M1928 Thompson on Indiana and a young Eliot Ness when they're discovered in the warehouse.
Sa 25/26 submachine gun (aircraft mounted MG's mockup)
Jones goes on a recon mission as a gunner/photographer and he is armed with two mounted Sa.25/26 SMG's, apparently as a mockup for the Lewis gun normally carried by recon planes at the time.
The Austrian Schwarzlose M1907 Machine Gun is used by German forces in "Trenches of Hell". It is most likely a Czech ZB53 modded with a water jacket to imitate one as the muzzle would be slightly lower.
Both the French and German forces are seen firing the Maxim MG08 machine gun.
Maxim MG08/15 Spandau
A German pilot tries to shoot Indy with his dual Maxim MG08/15 "Spandau"'s. The MG's appear to be genuine
The Lewis Gun is seen prominently in the episode "The Phantom Train of Doom". It's mounted on an enemy biplane as well as being used by Indiana Jones from a hot air balloon. To all connoisseurs, it must be noted the the Lewis Gun was captured and used by the Germans. The pan magazine doesn't appear to be from the same gun, possibly from a DP-28 instead.
A Russian Maxim is seen used in several episodes set during World War I. The machine gun is seen on the German train in "The Phantom Train of Doom", inaccurately used by the Germans.
Winchester Model 1897
In "Mystery of the Blues", a gangster is seen with a Winchester Model 1897 shotgun during the warehouse shootout.
12 Gauge Double Barreled Sawed off Shotgun
In "Mystery of the Blues", one of the men chasing Indiana Jones opens fire with a 12 Gauge Sawed off double barreled shotgun.
Model 1912 Grenade
Indiana Jones (Sean Patrick Flanery) is seen gathering Model 1912 stick grenades during a battle.
Grenatenwerfer 16 "Spigot Mortar"
East African forces fighting for the Germans are seen using a Grenatenwerfer 16 "Spigot Mortar" .
