Some more comments.

1) The following revolver looks similar to Gasser M1880 Montenegrin, though not at all: it seems to lack trigger guard and has a ejector rod with a large head. The barrel also seems to be longer. I'll contiue the research.

Gasser Montenegrin M1880 - 11.75 x 36mm Gasser

2) Turkish rifles appear to be historically correct Martini-Henry.

Martini-Henry Mk. I (1871-1876) .577-.450 caliber.
Close up, but blurred.

3) The sniper rifle appears to be two different rifles, replacing each other in one scene: one of them is a bolt action Mauser, while another one looks like some Winchester model with tube magazine. Greg-Z (talk) 04:18, 26 April 2015 (EDT)

The pocket pistol appears to be some version of Flobert gun, a very small caliber (4 mm in some models) single shot pistol, used for indoor shooting. In Russia such pistols were known under the trade mark Monte Cristo. Some info about Flobert pistols can be found here, a good image is here. Greg-Z (talk) 11:15, 26 April 2015 (EDT)
About the Gasser Montenegrin: the image of this revolver in Firearms by Aleksandr Juck (page 88, image 1-6 in Revolvers section) matches the screen revolver perfectly. Even a long barrel version exists. Greg-Z (talk) 11:19, 26 April 2015 (EDT)
Thank you very much. I shall correct information. Pyramid Silent (talk) 11:27, 26 April 2015 (EDT)
My thanks also for this page. I had the idea to create it several times, but my copy of the film is not so good. Greg-Z (talk) 12:06, 26 April 2015 (EDT)
As i'm think, sniper rifle everywhere one and the same; and it really is a bolt-action rifle with a tubular magazine. Most likely, something like a Gewehr 1871/84 with removed the wooden foregrip.
Position of the bolt differs from Gewehr 71/84. It looks rather like standard Mauser 98 or one of its close relatives. Greg-Z (talk) 06:43, 28 October 2016 (EDT)
But handguard is clearly a rough sawed-off. Maybe, tubular magazine just a fake. So, it is something like a "bolt-action rifle with a fake tubular magazine"? -Slon95 (talk) 08:24, 28 October 2016 (EDT)
Tubular magazine is a fake without a doubt. I think that we can say unhesitatingly "Mauser rifle with a fake tubular magazine". Somewhere in web there was a discussion on guns in this movie, the sniper rifle in particular, but I cannot remember just now where it was. Possibly on talk.guns.ru but maybe some other place.

Maybe, it's to different rifles: bolt action and with tubular magazine, due in the movie, it's never seen together both (tubular magazin and bolt action)? Pyramid Silent (talk) 14:34, 28 October 2016 (EDT)

Should this be
Turkish Gambit (Turetskiy gambit), The
Turkish Gambit, The (Turetskiy gambit)
? -SeptemberJack (talk) 18:33, 11 September 2017 (EDT)

Generally we put The after the full title in such cases, as it is moved from the beginning to the end. Alternate version is much more rare. Greg-Z (talk) 00:27, 12 September 2017 (EDT)
