Warlords of Atlantis is a 1978 British science fiction movie directed by Kevin Connor about a trip to the lost world of Atlantis. In USA it was released as Warlords of the Deep.

The following weapons were used in the film Warlords of Atlantis:


In the final scene the cabin boy Sandy (Ashley Knight) appeared with two revolvers of different models (on the first screenshot they are marked as No 1 and No 2). He tried to hold the mutineers but was disarmed. Revolver No 1 is most likely some version of Webley RIC in .442 or .455 caliber while the second revolver appears to be a Colt Official Police, possibly a version in .41 Long Colt caliber.

The elite guards of Atlantis were armed with lever-action rifles. After the guards were disarmed, all the main characters armed themselves with these rifles and used them against monsters and guards during their escape. One of the characters identified the rifles as fictional "Winchester 1888"; in reality these are Winchester Model 1873 and Winchester Model 1892 rifles that constantly switch to each other due to continuity errors.

Other weapons


Most of the guards of Atlantis are armed with blunderbuss guns. Unlike real blunderbuss these guns fire not shots but explosive shells, acting more like grenade launchers.

Smoothbore cannons

The humans of Atlantis use smoothbore muzzle-loading cannons against monsters.


Сartridges in bandoliers

Сartridges in bandoliers, carries by various characters, doesn't fit for their Winchester rifles as they appear to be .30-06 (or some similar looking model).
