These two are exiled persons who live in small settlement in Siberia when a gang of criminals attack this settlement. After the local militsioneer was killed by the gang, Basargin who is former commando officer rises to protect the villagers.

Later Mukha was killed by Basargin who uses the carbine against the rest of the gang. Fadeyich (Vladimir Kashpur) and then Zotov (Yuriy Kuznetsov) hold the carbine when the battle is over.

Vityok (Sergey Vlasov) uses a small caliber rifle, taken from a villager, to exterminate village dogs. The rifle is seen only in distance but its general shape resembles a TOZ-17. This rifle appeared only in late 1950s but there were earlier models, like TOZ-8, popular among small game hunters.
