|The Flight (Beg)
The Flight (Beg) is a 1970 Soviet drama movie directed by Aleksandr Alov and Vladimir Naumov and based on eponymous play by Mikhail Bulgakov. The movie depicts the story of a group of White refugees from the Russian Civil War, eking out an existence in Istanbul in the 1920s.
The following weapons were used in the film The Flight (Beg):
Nagant M1895 Revolver

Rast-Gasser M1898 Revolver
Austrian Rast-Gasser M1898 revolver is seen in hands of Artur Arturovich (Vladimir Basov). In the final scene General Charnota (Mikhail Ulyanov) also appears with Rast-Gasser instead of his Nagant (this may be a production error). Rast-Gasser revolver can be identified due to its typical side located ramrod.
