Other Weapons

Toy Guns

Several different toy guns are seen in the movie.

Criminal "Lysiy" (Anatoliy Mambetov) points a toy gun at Elizaveta. This "weapon" doesn't match any real pistol but bears some resemblance with target .22 caliber pistols with heavy barrels.

Andrey (Evgeniy Stychkin) and "Pchyolka" (Tatyana Dogileva) hold toy guns (possibly water pistols) during the rest at the seaside resort. Andrey's pistol distantly resembles a Beretta 92F while "Pchyolka"'s pistol resembles a Umarex GPDA.
