Shot in the Coffin (Russian title Vystrel v grobu, Ukrainian title Postril u truni) is a Ukrainian Russian-language 1992 action comedy directed by Nikolay Zaseev-Rudenko. A trio of seasoned criminals - Butylkin (Mikhail Pugovkin), Kovbasyuk (Yevgeny Morgunov) and Bulkin (Spartak Mishulin) - turn into legal politicans and plan to take the power. The only man who can stop them is super agent Colonel Stepan Subbota (Stepan Starchikov). But Subbota's mission is complicated by his superiors, led by Gen. Likyorov (Romualds Ancans), who want to make a secret collusion with the criminals.

Bulkin, disguised as a cleaning woman, aims the MP28. Note that the barrel shroud looks different from the one used on MP28/II; it has lesser holes and a different muzzle. Possibly it is a custom work that was made during the repair of broken gun.
Subbota emerges from the coffin in the final scene, holding the MP28.
The barrel shroud looks genuine, different from the one of Bulkin's SMG.
