The Property of Republic (Dostoyanie respubliki) is a 1971 Russian adventure movie directed by Vladimir Bychkov and starring Oleg Tabakov as Makar and Andrey Mironov as Markiz. The story takes place during the Russian Civil War, following several men searching for extremely valuable lost artwork.

The following weapons were used in the film The Property of Republic (Dostoyanie respubliki):


Nagant M1895

Nagant M1895 revolvers are seen in the hands of many characters, including Makar (Oleg Tabakov), Markiz (Andrey Mironov), Tarakanov (Spartak Mishulin), and Lagutin (Igor Kvasha).

Smith & Wesson Russian Model

The Smith & Wesson Russian Model Pattern II revolver is used by Markiz (Andrey Mironov) and Makar (Oleg Tabakov) when they both show outstanding marksmanship at a circus. Later, S&W revolvers are used by several of Lagutin's men.

Percussion Dueling Pistol

Markiz (Andrey Mironov) shows his outstanding marksmanship for the first time with a percussion lock pistol. He identifies this weapon as a Belgian-made pistol from the early 19th century (which would make it a flintlock rather than a caplock pistol). This long-barreled pistol looks like it is one half of a pair of dueling weapons.
