Businessmen (Delovye lyudi) is a 1963 Soviet comedy movie directed by Leonid Gaidai. The movie consists of three segments and each is based on a short story by O. Henry: The Roads we Take, Makes The Whole World Kin and The Ransom of Red Chief.

The following weapons are seen in the movie Businessmen (Delovye lyudi):

Smith & Wesson No.3 Russian Model

All revolvers in the movie are Russian-produced Smith & Wesson No.3 Russian Model Pattern II that differs a little from the original S&W. These revolvers are seen in hands of the robbers in the first episode of the movie (based on The Roads we Take), the burglar (Yuri Nikulin) in the second episode (based on Makes The Whole World Kin) and Bill Driscoll (Aleksei Smirnov) in the third episode (based on The Ransom of Red Chief). In the movie these revolvers are called "Colt".

Winchester Model 1895 Carbine

In the first episode the express messenger (Lev Lobov) is armed with Russian contract Winchester Model 1895 Carbine. In the third episode the analogous Winchester Model 1895 is seen on the wall in Mr. Ebenezer Dorset's house. The rifle is fitted with a fake underbarrel magazine, to make it look like as a Winchester Model 1892/Model 1894 carbine. This is presumably the same rifle, which then appears in the Dersu Uzala (1975).

Winchester Model 1895 Long Rifle

In the continuity error, the messenger's carbine goes into the usual full-size Russian contract Winchester Model 1895 military rifle.
