A pair of criminals, seasoned "Bug" and young and ill-tempered "Lyon'ka", hijack the truck. Capt. Madzhiev of the road patrol chases the truck while the truckers are hold by criminals and their life is in grave danger.
The following weapons were used in the film Double Passing (Dvoynoy obgon):
GAI (Soviet road patrol) officers carry Makarov PM pistols. In one scene "Bug" (Vytautas Tomkus) takes a PM from murdered Lt. Dzhafarov (Georgiy Martirosyan) and later uses it.

Unlike other GAI officers, Capt. Madzhiev's (Boris Khimichev) personal sidearm is a TT-33 of pre-1947 model. "Bug"'s PM switches to TT in the final scene due to a continuity error.
Tokarev TT-33 - 7.62x25mm Tokarev. Pre-1947 version.

M1911A1 pistol is used by "Lyon'ka" (Aleksandr Korshunov).
World War II Colt M1911A1 Pistol - .45 ACP
"Lyon'ka" fires at a GAI
The pistol is seen firing, that is rare for .45 M1911s in old films. Since the pistol in the film fully cycles, it must have been re-barreled for the use of 7.62x25mm blanks.
Some of the GAI personnel are seen with AK-74s during the attempt to stop the hijacked truck.
The shape of the muzzle brake allows to identify the rifle as AK-74.
