Gypsy Camp Vanishes Into the Blue (Tabor ukhodit v nebo; also released in English as Queen of the Gypsies and Gypsies Are Found Near Heaven) is a 1976 Soviet musical drama film directed by Emil Loteanu and based on the 1892 story "Makar Chudra" by Maxim Gorky. In the first years of the 20th century, a Gypsy camp travels in the Transcarpathian outskirts of the Austro-Hungary. Daring, handsome horse thief Loiko Zobar (Grigore Grigoriu) meets beautiful girl Radda (Svetlana Toma), but their love is fated.

The film got the Golden Shell award of the 1976 San Sebastian Film Festival.

The following weapons were used in the film The Gypsy Camp Vanishes Into the Blue (Tabor ukhodit v nebo):


Nagant M1895

Loiko's friend Bubulia (Sergiu Finiti) holds a Nagant M1895 revolver when he saves Loiko from the gallows. While this revolver already existed in 1900, one of the Austro-Hungarian Gasser revolvers would be a more correct choice.

Nagant M1895 - 7.62x38R Nagant. Note the angular front sight which was used from 1930s.

Mosin Nagant M1891 Dragoon / M891/30

Probably due to the lack of Mannlicher rifles, some gendarmes and cavalrymen carry a mix of Mosin Nagant M1891 Dragoon and M1891/30 rifles. All rifles have unhooded front sights but some may be identified as M91/30 by the shape of the receiver.
