Adventures of Kalle the Detective (Priklyucheniya Kalle-syschika)
Adventures of Kalle the Detective (a direct translation of original Russian title Priklyucheniya Kalle-syschika, Lithuanian title Seklio Kalio nuotykiai) is a Soviet Lithuanian 1978 (filmed 1976) made for TV adventure family movie, directed by Arunas Zebriunas and based on a series of stories by Astrid Lindgren. Kalle Blomkvist is a Swedish boy, fascinated with detective work. Together with his friends Kalle manages to solve a real crime.
The following weapons were used in the film Adventures of Kalle the Detective (Priklyucheniya Kalle-syschika):
The Nagant M1895 revolvers, modified to resemble the old cap and ball Colt revolvers, especially the long-barrel version of the Colt 1851 Navy (archaism for the late 1940s - early 50s, when the action takes place), are handguns of criminals Arthur Berg alias "Pale" (Jonas Aleksa) and Krook alias "Nasty" (Donatas Katkus); the latter carries two revolvers in shoulder holsters. Revolvers are fitted with long faceted barrels and fake loading levers. Three props were used in the movie, two with Colt-style wide grips and the third one with original Nagant grip with lanyard ring. These revolvers look similar to the guns, used in Smoke and Shorty, filmed by same studio.

Walther P38 pistols are used by Einar Lindenberg alias Unkle Einar (Gediminas Girdvainis) and by police officers Bjork (Edgaras Savickis) and Jurgens Santenson (Ramutis Jonas Rimeikis) and police Commissioner (Povilas Gaidys).
"Jet Grenade" (F-1)
"Pale" (Jonas Aleksa) uses a fictional "jet grenade" against police. It is based on the body of F-1 hand grenade.
Swedish police officers carry holsters for TT-33 pistols, painted in white (typical of the Soviet traffic police).
