Nagants are also used by MUR detectives Nikolai Taraskin (Andrei Gradov), Ivan Passyuk (Aleksandr Milyutin) (in one scene; later he is seen with a TT-33), Toporkov (Yevgeni Stezhko), and the driver Kopytin (Aleksey Mironov), and by robbers of the Black Cat gang "Gorbaty" (Hunchback) (Armen Dzhigarkhanyan), "Zhzhony" (Burnt) (Aleksandr Abdulov) and one uncredited person.
