Twelve Chairs (12 stulyev), The (1977)
The Twelve Chairs (12 stulyev) is a Soviet 1977 (filmed 1976) four part musical comedy mini series directed by Mark Zakharov and adapted from the novel by Ilya Ilf and Yevgeniy Petrov.
The following weapons were used in the miniseries The Twelve Chairs (12 stulyev):
Lefaucheux Model 1854
In the scene when a trio of robbers steal a boiling samovar from the courtyard of the house, the tall robber (Mikhail Polyak) is armed with a Lefaucheux Model 1854 revolver. This particular gun, identified by the lack of the ejector rod, is seen in several other Soviet movies and TV series, produced by Studio Ekran.
Viktor Polesov (Saveliy Kramarov), in his imagination of pursuing the robbers, at first holds a Nagant M1895 revolver. In another scene, two militsioners who detain drunk Vorobyaninov carry Nagant holsters but they seem to be rather flat and empty.
The medium robber (uncredited) is armed with a Colt M1911 pistol.
The midget robber (Vladimir Fyodorov) is armed with a TT-33 pistol.
Double Barreled Shotgun
After Polesov throws away a Nagant, he arms himself with a double barreled shotgun. In another scene, drunk Ippolit Matveevich Vorobyaninov (Anatoliy Papanov) takes a shotgun from a night watchman (Aleksey Drozdov).
Being unsatisfied with a shotgun, Polesov drags a Maxim M1910/30 machine gun. This is a post-1940 version with the top hatch on the cooling jacket.
