Golden Kamuy (Japanese title: ゴールデンカムイ, Gōruden Kamui) is a 2024 Japanese historical action film based on the 2014-2022 manga series of the same name by Satoru Noda. Taking place in Hokkaido, Japan in 1906, the film follows Saichi "Immortal" Sugimoto (Kento Yamazaki), a hardened veteran of the Russo-Japanese War. Sugimoto hears of a legend of a large stash of Ainu gold, hidden in Hokkaido with the directions leading to them tattooed on the backs of a group of escaped prisoners. As Sugimoto sets out to get the treasure for himself, he meets young Ainu huntress Asirpa (Anna Yamada), who joins Sugimoto on his search for the gold. The film follows Sugimoto and Asirpa as they search for the gold, and make friends and enemies along the way as they discover the many people who are also searching for the gold and the tattooed prisoners. The film was released in Japanese theaters on January 19, 2024, with a Netflix-exclusive worldwide release following on May 19 of the same year. A sequel television series, Golden Kamuy: Hokkaido Tattooed Prisoners Scramble Arc, is set to begin airing later in 2024.

Mosin Nagant M91/30

The Imperial Russian Army is incorrectly and anachronistically depicted using the Mosin Nagant M91/30 instead of the accurate M1891 model in the film. Multiple Mosin Nagants also appear during a post-credits scene. Many of the rifles used have the hooded front sights removed and the bayonets affixed to their barrels. Apart from that, some appear to be replicas based on the M91/30 rather than the correct M1891.

Multiple Imperial Russian soldiers fire their Mosins at the charging Japanese soldiers at the Siege of Port Arthur in the film's prologue. All of them have front barrel bands. The right one still has a hooded front sight.

Machine Guns

Maxim 1895
