Everything is Paid (unofficial title, originally Totul se plateste) is a Romanian 1987 adventure movie directed by Mircea Moldovan. This is the sixth and final film about the adventures of noble brigand Margelatu "The Yellow Rose" (Florin Piersic). The plot is set in the Principality of Wallachia (modern Romania) during the Revolution of 1848. A secret emissary from France arrives at the revolutionary organisation "Justice and Brotherhood" with a promise of help. But Margelatu has suspicions about the real personality and goals of this man. Soon he uncovers that the visitor is connected with Margelatu's archenemy Agatha Slatineanu (Marga Barbu).

Handguns

Margelatu's Pepperbox

In all six movies Margelatu (Florin Piersic) carries his signature weapon, an eight-barrel pepperbox. The gun is a custom prop, generally resembling Lefaucheux and Francotte models but with separate barrels, like on Mariette Pepperbox.

For a trivia about the gun see the page for the second film.

Mariette Pepperbox

What appears to be a genuine Mariette Pepperbox is seen among the guns of revolutionaries.

Percussion Cap Pistol

Percussion Cap Pistols are seen in hands of Hare Lip (Szabolcs Cseh), Basota aka La Peyrolle (Emil Hossu), Deivos (George Motoi), Agatha's mercenary Geambasu (Aristide Teica) and his men, and numerous rebels on barricades. Most pistols seem rather authentic, not visually modified shotguns; they even shoot with flashes and sparks on locks.

Shotguns

Single Barreled Shotgun (visually modified)

Full-stock Single Barreled Shotguns, visually modified by adding a long handguard and additional barrel bands, are used as muskets of Geambasu's brigands, rebels on barricades and Ottoman soldiers. They aren't fitted with any kind of fake flintlock or percussion cap lock. Unlike the props, seen in most films of the series, these shotguns doesn't have Izhmekh-style spurs on trigger guards.

Rifles and Muskets

M1879 Peabody-Martini

During the ambush on Margelatu and Hare Lip one of Geambasu's men is armed with a M1879 Peabody-Martini rifle. This gun was a service rifle of Romanian army in 1880s and doesn't fit for 1840s.

Martini-Henry Mk. I (1871-1876) - .577-.450 caliber. Romanian Peabody-Martini in 11x59mm caliber looks generally the same.

Karabiner 98k

In the mass scenes of the battle on barricades some Mauser rifles are briefly seen. Karabiner 98k seems a decent guess.

Flintlock Musket

Flintlock muskets are also seen in hands of rebels.

Mockup Muskets

Some long guns with flintlocks and/or percussion cap locks, seen in hands of rebels and Ottoman soldiers, appear to be mockups, but the base rifle is unclear. It may be Mauser Gewehr 1871 that is used in several films of the series, or some other model.

Revolutionaries with muskets. A lock, seen at the left, is obviously fake as it combines the hammer of percussion cap lock and the frizzen of flintlock. A bayonet on another musket is seen at the right.
