The Irregulars is a 2021 British urban fantasy adventure TV series created by Tom Bidwell for Netflix. A group of teenagers, called Irregulars, live on the streets of Victorian London. John Watson involves them in the solving of supernatural crimes that arise across the city. The series was canceled after one season.
The following weapons were used in the miniseries The Irregulars:
WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
A Webley Bulldog is seen in hands of a clone of young Carla Machin (Harriet Turnbull) in "Chapter Two: The Ghosts of 221B" (S01E02).
Webley British Bulldog No. 2, c. 1872-1876 - .442 CF
The Bulldog revolver is seen on the tray. Note the bird's head grip and the unfluted cylinder.
The girl aims at the Duke of Winchester.
Another view of the same scene.
Billy (Jojo Macari) kicks the gun off the girl's hand.
Colt 1862 Police / Pocket Police
Alan Crawley (Pip Carter), the leader of the Golden Dawn occult cult, holds a short barreled Colt 1862 Police in "Chapter Three: Ipsissimus" (S01E03). It can be a Pocket Police model or custom Police with shortened barrel.

Crawley aims at Patricia Coleman Jones (Olivia Grant). The revolver has a shorter barrel than a standard 1862 Police, but as the gun seems to be larger than a Pocket Police, it may be a full-size revolver with custom shortened barrel.
The barrel length is seen better under a different angle of view.
Crawley's revolver is seen from the muzzle.
The revolver is now in hands of Patricia.
Patricia aims at Spike who's holding Jessie.
Webley .455 Mk II and Mk III
Webley .455 Mk II and Mk III are seen in several scenes. Inspector Lestrade (Aidan McArdle) carries a Webley in "Chapter Four: Both the Needle and the Knife" (S01E04). It's hard to say for sure if his revolver is a Mk II or Mk III. In "Chapter Eight: The Ecstasy of Life" (S01E08) John Watson (Royce Pierreson) carries a pair of Webley revolvers, one of which is definitly a Mk III and another one is supposed to be a Mk II.
Webley Mk II - .455 Webley
Webley Mk III - .455 Webley
Inspector Lestrade holds opened revolver in "Both the Needle and the Knife". The cylinder to frame lock that is different on Mk II and Mk III isn't seen so it's hard to identify the exact model.
Lestrade holds the revolver when he approaches a pub in search of a suspect.
Jessie (Darci Shaw) holds Lestrade's revolver.
She aims at a person with Lestrade's face.
Jessie hands the revolver to Clara (Eleanor Worthington-Cox).
A pair of Webley revolvers is seen in a drawer in "The Ecstasy of Life". The one at the right is definitly a Mk II. The one at the left is opened, its model is unclear.
Watson holds a Webley Mk III revolver. His second revolver that is not seen at that moment may be the abovementioned Mk II.
Watson fires at The Linen Man.
Another view of Watson's revolvers in the same scene.
One of guards in the opium den in "Chapter Four: Both the Needle and the Knife" (S01E04) carries a compact revolver in Colt 1850s-1860s style, possibly a short-barreled 1851 Navy or 1860 Army. The frame of the revolver has brass details.
For reference: Pietta Colt 1851 Navy Sheriff's with brass frame - .44 caliber. This sample is used here only as an example of short-barreled Colt revolver of 1850s-1860s.
The grip of the revolver tucked into the belt of the guard on the left can be seen.
The general outline of the revolver allow to identify it as some Colt model with short, possibly sawed-off barrel.
Sawed-Off Double Barrel Shotgun / Howdah Pistol
Another guard in the opium den in "Chapter Four: Both the Needle and the Knife" (S01E04) carries a Sawed-Off Double Barrel Shotgun with exposed hammers, or maybe a Howdah Pistol.
For reference: Sawed off side by side shotgun with exposed hammers - 12 gauge
The guard at the right carries a short double barreled gun with exposed hammers tucked into his belt.
Another view of the guard's gun. The opening lever can be seen on the top of the stock. This feature allows to consider the gun as a shotgun as Howdah pistols commonly had underlevers. The pistol grip seems to be less elaborated than on a purposely build Howdah, but again, it's hard to say for sure.
Chilean Mauser 1895 Cavalry Carbine
John Watson (Royse Pierreson) and Sherlock Holmes (Henry Lloyd-Hughes) use Chilean Mauser 1895 Cavalry Carbines in the scenes in the prison mental hospital in "Chapter Seven: The Ecstasy of Death" (S01E07). Holmes also holds a Chilean 1895 carbine in "Chapter Eight: The Ecstasy of Life" (S01E08). It is identified by the very short barrel, turned down bolt handle, the shape of the top barrel band and the side mounted sling swivels.
Mauser 1895 Carbine - 7x57mm Mauser
The guards in the prison mental hospital carry carbines in "The Ecstasy of Death".
A close-up of the Mauser 1895 Carbine in hands of Watson. The side mounted sling swivel is seen.
Watson holds his carbine.
A Lee-Enfield carbine (see below) in hands of Inspector Gregson (Tim Key) switches to a Mauser 1895 carbine due to a continuity error.
Gregson aims the carbine, which Holmes takes away from him the next moment.
A good view of Watson's carbine.
Holmes holds the carbine while pursuing The Linen Man.

A Chilean Mauser 1895 Carbine is seen at the bottom in the gun cabinet at the Baker Street 221B.

Lee-Enfield Officer's Model No. 2 Carbine
Inspector Gregson (Tim Key) is armed with a Lee-Enfield Officer's Model No. 2 Carbine in the scenes in the prison mental hospital in "Chapter Seven: The Ecstasy of Death" (S01E07). The carbine is seen in the gun cabinet at the Baker Street 221B and then it is used by Spike (McKell David) in "Chapter Eight: The Ecstasy of Life" (S01E08). Model No. 2 Carbine was in fact a hunting style rifle for an officer and a gentleman, unlike Officer's Model No. 1 that had a military stock and a bayonet lug.
Lee-Enfield Officer's Model No. 2 Carbine - .303 British
Inspector Gregson aims his carbine at The Bird Master (Rory MacCann) in "The Ecstasy of Death" (S01E07).
Another view of the same scene. In the following scene the Lee-Enfield carbine in hands of Gregson switches to a Mauser 1895 carbine due to a continuity error.
The Lee-Engield cavalry carbine is perfectly seen on top in the gun cabinet in "The Ecstasy of Life" (S01E08). The rifle at the bottom is a Chilean Mauser 1895 Carbine.
He carries the carbine on sling.
The barrel of Spike's carbine is seen when he encounters Sister Anna (Lisa Dwyer Hogg).
Spike holds his carbine in the sewers.
Spike aims at the monster. The bolt is seen.
Spike reloads the carbine.
Royal Guards hold Martini-Henry rifles on a photo from the set. In the series itself, Royal Guards are seen in several scenes but they don't carry rifles, so possibly this scene was deleted in the release cut.
Martini-Henry Mk. I (1871-1876) - .577-.450 caliber
