The following weapons were used in the film His Name Is Sukhe-Bator (Yego zovut Sukhe-Bator):

Unidentified revolvers

Gombo (Vladimir Gribkov), one of Sukhbaatar's comrades-in-arms, carries a revolver (or two different revolvers) that is seen only partially. What is seen resembles such revolvers as Lefaucheux Model 1858 or Warnant.

For comparison: Warnant revolver
Gombo carries a revolver tucked into his belt. What is seen resembles Warnant, Lefaucheux or some other revolver of similar outlook.
Gombo carries a revolver in another scene. This revolver seems slightly different from the previous one - or maybe still the same gun.


Mauser C96

Damdin Sukhbaatar (Lev Sverdlin), Khorloogiin Choibalsan (Gelik-Dordji) and some other Red Mongols carry Mauser C96 pistols. Mausers are also used by Baron Ungern (Nikolay Cherkasov), Cossack officer Sipaga (Ivan Bobrov), Ungern's Mongol ally Bair-Gun (Chimidiin Tsaveen) and Chinese officers.

Machine Guns

Maxim M1910 and/or M1910/30

Maxim machine guns are used by Red Mongols, Soviet Red troops and Baron Ungern's army. Most Maxims have corrugated water jackets so they are early M1910s or M1910/30s. At least one Maxim has smooth water jacket that allows to identify it as an M1910.
