Grandads-Robbers (Stariki-razboyniki; another English title Old Men: Robbers) is a 1971 Soviet comedy directed by Eldar Ryazanov. Aged Ugolovny Rozysk (criminal police) Det. Nikolay Myachikov (Yuriy Nikulin) is on the verge of sacking as his superior Fedyaev claimed that Myachikov solved no crimes for a long time. Myachikov's friend Vorobyov (Evgeniy Evstigneev) suggests him to commit a perfect crime himself and then quickly solve it. But the way of "fake crimes" is not so simple as the two old men thought.

The following weapons were used in the film Grandads-Robbers (Stariki-razboyniki):

Makarov PM

In one scene Myachikov (Yuriy Nikulin) loans a Makarov PM from the militioneer Petya (Yuri Belov) in order to threaten Det. Proskudin (Andrey Mironov) who plans to get Myachikov's position.
