Revolvers

Nagant M1895

Nagant M1895 revolvers are widely used by Ugolovny Rozysk personnel, notably Nikolay Kondratyev (Evgeniy Zharikov), Aleksey Bushmakin (Viktor Shulgin), Nil Kolychev (Vadim Medvedev), Stepan Sergeev (Uldis Pucitis) and Grisha (Sergei Podgornyj), and also by criminals and counterrevolutionaries. Most revolvers are of anachronistic post-1930 version.
