Did anyone see this movie? It's starring Cillian Murphey (28 days later, batman begins, etc) about the Irish war of Independence in 1919. It was very very good (apart from all of the socialist propaganda of course).

There were some pretty interesting guns in the movie. A lot of Enfields and Mausers. But there was a revolver I couldn't identify.

I'm no expert so the answer is probably obvious, but does anyone know what kind of revolver that is on the right?

The Webley's the most iconic modern European revolver of all time. Break-barrel, a fat .45 slug weighing around 260 grains - in the Marks I-VI. The Mark IV was also made in .38 S&W, BTW. Hexagonal barrel.
It's one the few Euro revolvers I've seen with an American-style butt.

Besides, Indiana Jones used on in The Last Crusade.

From the shape of the hammer it looks to be a Webley Mk VI in .455 (many were coverted to .45 acp and sold in the US).

Here's one on gunbroker.
