Cossack Outpost (a direct translation of original title Kazachya zastava) is a 1982 historical adventure movie directed by Viktor Zhivolub. Aleksey Butov (Borislav Brondukov), a Cossack of Amur Cossack Host, returns home in 1923 after the World War I and Russian Civil war. But Aleksey was considered dead from 1915, and his wife now has a new family. Meanwhile Aleksey's native stanitsa (Cossacks village), located on the Russian-Chinese border, suffers attacks of Honghuzi (Chinese bandtis) and former White Army men under the leadership of Anna Morozova, a widow of White officer. Aleksey raises fellow villagers to defend the border.

The following weapons were used in the film Cossack Outpost (Kazachya zastava):

Machine Guns

Degtyaryov DT (visually modified to resemble Lewis)

Two Degtyaryov DT machine guns, visually modified to resemble Lewis Gun, are used in the movie. One of these machine guns, with light brown wood on buttstock, is seen in hands of Aleksey Butov (Borislav Brondukov) when he confiscates the gun from local richman Fedot Makeyich (Anatoliy Popolzukhin). Another fake Lewis, with dark, nearly black furniture, is seen mounted on a patrol boat of border guards, then captured by Anna Morozova's gang and used by Irod (Lev Perfilov). During the climactic shootout Butov also uses this prop instead of the one, seen earlier.
