A Quiet Outpost (Tikhaya zastava)
A Quiet Outpost (Tikhaya zastava) is a 2011 Russian war movie directed by Sergey Makhovikov. The story is based on real events that took place in July 13, 1993 on the Tajikistan-Afghanistan border where a Russian border guard outpost was attacked by Islamic radicals (after Tajikistan became an independent state, Russian border guards were still stationed on the former USSR's southern border until Tajikistan formed its own border guard in the late 1990s).
The following weapons were used in the film A Quiet Outpost (Tikhaya zastava):
The commander of the outpost, Capt. Pankov (Andrey Chadov), and Praporshik (Petty Officer) Gritsyuk (Sergey Selin) carry Makarov PM pistols. They are only seen in holsters.
In one scene, Lyuba (Larisa Shakhvorostova) fires a stainless steel pistol that appears to be an EKOL Tuna, a blank-firing replica pistol based on the FIE Titan.
