Jack's primary gun for the series is a Webley Mk VI .455 revolver. The Webley was the standard issue sidearm for the British military from 1887 to 1963. In actuality, Jack's weapon is a Webley Mk IV .38. This is evident in the muzzle diameter and overall frame size of the gun. The Mk VI variant, introduced in 1915, is probably the best-known model. The Mk IV variant rose to prominence from 1899-1902 and is still in use as a police service weapon in many countries. See more »

I love this show, from its inventiveness to its style and fashions to the ongoing drama of its plots. The cast is genius, and its the loveliest bit of sci-fi, fantasy, horror, comedy, and romantic drama on television in forever. I'm not privy to lots of the shows my mum's watched, but this show is as boss as it gets. What else is there to say. It's better than doctor who and better than Buffy, plus it's more sophisticated and simpler in some ways. Love it. Love it. Love it!! I need to start reading the books that have come out for it. I bet they're not as good as the show. Anyway I think it's so cool that it's going on, and I hope they make a movie of it soon.
