Luger P08 Pistol
Luger P08 pistols are used both by police and criminals.
FN Model 1905 (Spanish Eibar version)
A pocket pistol, most likely a Spanish, Belgian or Czech version of FN Model 1905, is used by Mihai Roman (Ilarion Ciobanu) in the scene when a trio of criminals hold childs in kindergarten as hostages. Another FN 1905 style pocket pistol, this one nickel plated with pearl grips, is used by the crime boss Constantin Semaca (George Constantin) in the final scene.
PPSh-41 submachine guns with stick magazines used by police and occasionally by criminals.
One of the trio of criminals who hold childs in kindergarten as hostages carries a PPS-43 submachine gun. It has a stick magazine of straight shape, not the curved one. This magazine is supposed to be taken from MP40 and fitted to PPS-43 (what actually happened with some of the guns captured during WWII by the German army and converted to 9mm; anyway, this SMG doesn't fire in the movie). Some sources claim that a version of PPS-43 with a straight magazine was manufactured in China but it's not a veraciously.
MP40 submachine guns are used by various criminals.
Double Barreled Shotun
Several double barreled shotguns are seen in hands of Jean Semaca (Amza Pellea) and his huntsmen in the scene of the winter hunting. Jean Semaca claims that his shotguns are of Purdey and Holland & Holland manufacture.
Karabiner 98k Sporter Rifle
In one scene Romanian soldiers carry rifles that are not seen clear enough to be identified for sure. They are supposed to be Romanian contract Vz. 24 but only as a guess.
