The "Podbyrin 9.2 mm" is a fictional Russian handgun constructed for the 1988 film Red Heat. This pistol was an IMI Desert Eagle Mark I fitted with a custom barrel and other completely custom elements, put together to somewhat rememble an oversized handgun of Soviet origin.

Director Walter Hill wanted a "P38 but bigger and meaner. A P38 on Steroids", so movie armorer Tim LaFrance built three guns he named "The Hollywood Eagle". He used the Desert Eagle .357 Mk I pistols as a base and had to modify the entire profile to resemble a large Walther P38. According to LaFrance, the most difficult part of the blank adaption conversion was the gas porting.
