Victor (Pobeditel), The
The Victor (a literal translation of original title Pobeditel) is a Soviet 1976 (filmed 1975) adventure movie, directed by Andrey Ladynin and Edgar Khodzhikyan. The story is set during the Russian Civil War. Commissar of Red Army infantry and machine guns school Yakov Pavlovich Spiridonov (Aleksandr Zbruev) becomes a prisoner of Whites but manages to escape and organises a unit of local peasants.
The following weapons were used in the film The Victor (Pobeditel):
Nagant M1895 revolvers are used by several characters, notably Commissar Yakov Pavlovich Spiridonov (Aleksandr Zbruev) and the officer of White Army counterintellegence service Rotmistr (Capt.) Valentin Andreevich Kareyev (Vladimir Korenev). Most, if not all Nagants appear to be of pre-1930 version.
FN Model 1922
An out of time FN Model 1922 pistol is a personal sidearm of White Army Poruchik (Lt.) Georgiy Yevgenyevich Mokashev (Georgiy Taratorkin). In one scene Yakov Pavlovich Spiridonov (Aleksandr Zbruev) holds Mokashev's pistol.
Mikhail (Yuri Gusev), Spiridonov's assistant, fires a Mauser C96 during the battle against Rotmistr Kareyev's punitive detachment.
Mosin Nagant M1891/30
Mosin Nagant M1891/30 rifles, standing for original M91s, are used by White Army troops and Spiridonov's insurgents. Yakov Pavlovich Spiridonov (Aleksandr Zbruev) is briefly seen with a rifle when he signals for the night attack.
Mosin Nagant M1938 Carbine
Poruchik Mokashev (Georgiy Taratorkin), Spiridonov's assistant Dmitriy (nicknamed Mityay) Alekseevich Arsanov (Evgeniy Shutov) and some other insurgents are seen with anachronistic Mosin Nagant M1938 Carbines.
Double Barreled Shotgun
Double Barreled Shotguns are seen in hands of Mityay Arsanov (Evgeniy Shutov), Yegor (Mikhail Lobanov), and Aleksandr Ganin (Aleksei Loktev). These hammerless shotguns are possibly IZh-54 model, widely produced in 1950s-1960s.
A Maxim M1910/30 of post-1940 version is used by insurgents.
