The Man from Snowy River is a 1982 Australian Western drama film directed by George T. Miller. Based on the 1890 poem of the same name by Banjo Paterson (who appears in the film in a fictional portrayal), the film tells the story of Jim Craig (Tom Burlinson), who tries to prove his worth to live in the Snowy Mountains by working as a stationhand for Harrison (Kirk Douglas), and falls in love with Harrison's daughter, Jessica (Sigrid Thornton), culminating into a legendary chase to retrieve Harrison's prize colt who had ran off with a mob of brumbies. The film also stars Chris Haywood, Jack Thompson, Lorraine Bayly, Terrence Donovan, and David Bradshaw as Banjo Paterson. A sequel was released in 1988 titled Return to Snowy River.

The following weapons were used in the film The Man from Snowy River:
