Mirage is a Russian 2008 action movie directed by Tigran Keosayan. A business lady Lera Chernyshova (Alyona Khmelnitskaya) becomes a witness of a murder, commited by a high-rank politician (Viktor Verzhbitskiy). Being afraid for her life, she runs to some Middle East country. But there Lera together with two more Russian girls, Tanya (Natalya Naumova) and Ulyana (Antonina Komissarova), is kidnapped by local nomads who are engaged in slave, weapons and drug trade. The three girls manage to escape and hide in ruins in desert where they meet two Russian tourists, Misha (Aleksey Chadov) and Zhenya (Aleksey Bardukov), who got lost in desert. Meanwhile the politician hires a bounty hunter known as "The Catcher" (Dmitriy Maryanov) in order to find Lera and bring her home.

The following weapons were used in the film Mirage:


Walther P99

Jamal (Rustam Urazaev), the leader of nomads, carries a two-tone pistol that appears to be a Walther P99. As in most modern Russian movies, it is most likely a blank firing or airsoft replica.

Brixia Arms Model 92 Army

The Catcher (Dmitriy Maryanov) carries a pistol in holster. He never draws his gun so only a grip can be seen. The shape of the grip resembles Beretta 92FS but the logo on the grip allows to identify the pistol as Brixia Arms Model 92 Army, the blank firing replica, manufactured by Brixia Arms.
