Demons (original title Besy) is a Russian 2014 screen adaptation of the famous novel by Fyodor Dostoevsky. The mini-series is directed by Vladimir Khotinenko.

The following weapons were used in the film Demons (Besy) (2014 TV Series):


M1854 Naval Percussion Cap Pistol

During the duel between Nikolay Stavrogin (Maksim Matveev) and Artemy Gaganov (Pavel Vorozhtsov), both of them use Russian M1854 Naval percussion cap pistols. Exactly the same pistols are used in the corresponding scene in the 2006 TV adaptation.
