Bread, Gold and the Nagant Revolver (Khleb, zoloto, nagan)
Bread, Gold and the Nagant Revolver (Khleb, zoloto, nagan) is a Soviet 1980 action movie directed by Samvel Gasparov. The story takes place during the Russian Civil War. Olga Sokolova delivers bread to the starving children in an orphanage. Her companions are the Red commissar Vladimir Gorbach, the sailor Sasha Andronov and the chief of railway station Zaytsev who secretly carries three gold bars. The characters encounter various adventures on their way.
The following weapons are seen in the movie Bread, Gold and the Nagant Revolver (Khleb, zoloto, nagan):
Nagant M1895 revolvers are used by several characters including Vladimir Gorbach (Vladimir Borisov), Olga Sokolova (Olga Gasparova) and Stepan Zaytsev (Oleg Korchikov).
A Bulldog-style revolver is a backup weapon of Mezentsev (Eduard Martsevich), the chieftain of a gang of outlaws.
Mauser C96 "Broomhandle"
Mauser C96 "Broomhandle" pistols are used by Sasha Andronov (Yuriy Grigorev), Mezentsev (Eduard Martsevich) and Mezentsev's lieutenant Pashka the Gypsy (Elgudzha Burduli).
Mauser C96 "Bolo"
A nickel plated Mauser C96 "Bolo" is carried by Mezentsev's bodyguard (Makharbek Kokoyev). After he is disarmed, his Mauser is used by Sasha Andronov (Yuriy Grigorev).
Mosin Nagant M1938 Carbine
Most rifles in the movie are anachronistic Mosin Nagant M1938 Carbines. They are seen in hands of Red Army soldiers, White Army soldiers and outlaws.
Custom Mosin Nagant
Various characters use Mosin Nagant short rifles that appear to be custom shortened M1891s. Visually they resemble M1907 Carbines. Same props are seen in other Gorky Film Studio production, like Ne stavte Leshemu kapkany....
In the opening scene Sasha Andronov (Yuriy Grigorev) carries a rifle that later switches to a Mosin Nagant M1938 Carbine. It appears to be M91/30 rifle that has a broken or sawed-off muzzle part of the barrel. Same or at least very similar prop is seen in Propavshaya ekspeditsiya, filmed by same studio five years before.
Mosin Nagant M1891/30 Rifle
Full-length Mosin Nagant M1891/30 rifles are briefly seen in several scenes.
Mosin Nagant Sawn-off Rifle ("Obrez")
Several men of Mezentsev's gang carry Mosin Nagant sawn-off "obrez" rifles.
A Lewis machine gun is captured from Mezentsev's gang by Sasha Andronov (Yuriy Grigorev). It is original Lewis but this particular gun has a makeshift barrel cover and lacks a bipod but is fitted with a pivot. According to these features, it can be assumed that this machine gun is an aircraft mounted version of Lewis, visually modified to resemble a standard infantry version. Another guess is that it is simply a damaged piece that was very roughly repared on cinema factory.
Maxim M1910 machine guns are seen in several scenes.
