Demons (Besy) (1992)
Demons (original title Besy) is a Russian 1992 screen adaptation of the famous novel by Fyodor Dostoevsky, directed by Dmitri Talankin and Igor Talankin.
The following weapons were used in the film Demons (Besy) (1992):
Ivan Shatov (Sergey Garmash) owns a Webley RIC revolver, the "New Model" as it has a fluted cylinder. In one scene the same revolver is seen in hands of Pyotr Verkhovensky (Pyotr Yurchenkov).
Webley .38 Mk IV
In the final scene Pyotr Verkhovensky (Pyotr Yurchenkov) is seen with a heavily anachronistic short-barreled Webley .38 Mk IV, supposedly a "Pocket" model with 3" barrel but maybe a 4" barreled "Duty" model.
Aleksey Kirillov's (Dmitriy Pevtsov) revolver is equally anachronistic short barreled Nagant M1895.
Izhmekh IZh-18 (visually modified)
During the duel of Nikolay Stavrogin (Andrey Rudenskiy) and Mavriky Nikolayevich (Vladimir Antonik) both use flintlock pistols that appear to be visually (and crudely) modified IZh-18 single barreled shotguns. The shotguns are chopped and fitted with fake flint locks.
