Dzhulbars is a Russian 2020 (filmed 2017) war TV series. In August 1941, the school of service dog breeding of the Soviet Border Guards falls under the German offensive. The cadets of the school with their dogs take the fight, covering the evacuation.

The title of the TV series is a reference to the Soviet 1935 film about the Border Guards service dog named Dzhulbars.

The following weapons were used in the film Dzhulbars:


Nagant M1895

Starshina (Sgt.Maj.) of the Border Guards Yegorych (Aleksandr Marushev) carries a Nagant M1895 revolver. In firing scenes his standard Nagant is replaced with blank-firing "Blef".

Nagant M1895 - 7.62x38R Nagant. Note the angular front sight which was used from 1930s.

Tokarev TT-33

Capt. of the Border Guards Ivan Matveevich Shevtsov (Nikolay Machulskiy) and Major of State Security Boris Arapov (Gennadiy Yakovlev) carry TT-33 pistols. Shevtsov's TT several times switches between pre- and post-1947 versions.

German soldiers and plainclothes saboteurs are armed with MP38 submachine guns. Captured MP38s are used by several Soviet border guards and soldiers, notably Capt Ivan Shevtsov (Nikolay Machulskiy) and Starshina Yegorych (Aleksandr Marushev).

Tokarev SVT-40

SVT-40 rifles are used by both Soviet border guards and German soldiers. While in reality captured SVT rifles were popular among German troops, in August 1941 they were still rarely seen.

Mosin Nagant M1891 Dragoon

Many Soviet soldiers and border guards are armed with Mosin Nagant M1891 Dragoon rifles. German soldiers also use Mosin Nagant rifles that are probably used in this case due to insufficient number of correct Kar 98k rifles.

The Border Guards cadets hunt for the saboteurs. The rifle at the right is an M91 Dragoon while the partially seen rifle at the left has a hex receiver and may be an original M91 or an early M91/30.

Mosin Nagant M1891/30

Mosin Nagant M1891/30 rifles are also seen, but they are less common.

Mosin Nagant M1891/30 - 7.62x54mm R
Cadet Yasha Nikolaev (Vyacheslav Subrakov) holds an M91/30 rifle. Note that the sling slot is placed uncommonly close to the top barrel band; possibly the rifle is a kind of rework. Throughout the series, Nikolaev's rifle several times switches between full-length rifle and various carbines.
Soldiers in center and at the left carry M91/30 rifles. These rifles turn out to be a kind of rework as the barrel bands are placed incorrectly, too near to the sling slots.

Mosin Nagant M1891/30 Sniper

Mosin Nagant M1891/30 Sniper Rifles, without the scopes but idenfitied by the turned down bolt handles and brackets for scopes, are seen in hands of Soviet soldiers and Border Guards cadets and German soldiers.

In several scenes Yasha Nikolaev's (Vyacheslav Subrakov) and Alekseev's (Anton Shpinkov) M38 Carbines switch to a sniper version, without the scopes but with turned down bolt handles. Several other cadets also carry same looking carbines.

Mosin Nagant M1944 Carbine

Anachronistic Mosin Nagant M1944 Carbines are also used by Yasha Nikolaev (Vyacheslav Subrakov) and several other cadets. The carbines have the folding bayonets removed but the brackets are still seen.

PKM (visually modified as MG34)

PKM machine guns, visually modified to resemble MG34, are used by German troops (very likely a single prop is reused).

The CGI Bf 109 attacks the Soviet soldiers. The muzzle flashes match the armament used on Bf 109 F: a single engine-mounted cannon and two synchronized machine guns over the engine. Nevertheless the fins with supports match Bf 109 E that was mainly armed with two wing-mounted cannons.
A replica of Sd.Kfz.222 light armored car is seen at the background.
