Hold-Up (a direct translation of the original title Nalyot; Russian title Налётъ is intentionally written in the pre-reform Russian orthography, with the hard sign at the end of the word) is a 1993 Ukrainian Russian-language crime comedy directed by Igor Sevchenko. A seasoned criminal, gang boss Karp Ignatyevich (Aleksey Petrenko) involves his inexperienced nephew Stepan (Sergei Pozhogin) into a bank hold-up. In honor of their future success, they arrange a banquette for their gang, but Militsiya (police) is also aware about this assembly.
The following weapons were used in the film Hold-Up (Nalyot):
Several criminals carry Nagant M1895 revolvers. Petyunya (Aleksandr Baluev) hands a Nagant to Stepan (Sergei Pozhogin).
Nagant M1895 Revolver - 7.62x38R Nagant. Note the angular front sight which was used from 1930s.

and then with a TT-33
He "reloads" the revolver. Three cartridges in his hand doesn't fit to Nagant: the one at the right is a pistol cartridge, possibly 7.62x25, the one in center is a rifle cartridge, possibly 7.62x39, and the one at the left resembles a shotgun slug, or maybe an empty brass for large caliber machine gun.
