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):
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.
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.
