Gladiator for Rent (Gladiator po naymu)
Gladiator for Rent (Gladiator po naymu; Russian: Гладиатор по найму) is a 1993 Belarusian-Ukrainian detective/crime drama based on the novel "The Case of the Velvet Claws" by Erle Stanley Gardner. The owner of the private detective agency Ilya Mirsky (nicknamed "Gladiator for Hire" for his habit of taking the hard cases) receives a tempting offer from the wife of media mogul Yeva Lukachyova (who uses an alias Yeva Adamovich) - he should not allow the leak of compromising information, which would deprive Yeva of her multimillion-dollar inheritance. Deciding to take the case, Ilya could have hardly imagined that he would have to face a whole series of sophisticated murder, and that the result would be in the danger of his own life.
The following weapons were used in the film Gladiator for Rent (Gladiator po naymu):
Short-Barreled Nagant M1895
Guriy Lukachyov (Nikolai Yeryomenko, Sr.) has a P1001 pistol, the East Germany-produced copy of Walther PP. The same gun subsequently uses by Yeva (Marina Mogilevskaya); and later his nephew, Stas Kostylev (Sergey Gazarov).
Supressed Walther P38
What appears to be an supressed Walther P38 is used by Ilya Mirsky in the final scene.
The AKS-74U rifles could be seen used by police officers and a several guards.
Epstein's Gun Shop
One scene in the film that requires its own section is the Epstein's Gun Shop. Several different types of weapons could be seen here. Most of them are shown only from a distance and are a little blurry, but, nevertheless, could be easily identified. Note: Guns which were already on the page are listed here again to save space.
Several P1001 pistols appear in the Epstein's Gun Shop (Guriy's own P1001 pistol was bought in this shop).
Several TT-33 pistols could be seen in the Epstein's Gun Shop.
The Luger P08 also appears inter alia firearms.
1914 Mauser Pocket Pistol
What appears to be an nickel-plated 1914 Mauser Pocket Pistol is seen in the Epstein's Gun Shop.
FN Model 1905
Four pocket pistols (two of which are nickel-plated) also appears inter alia weapons. It appears to be a FN Model 1905 or some of its numerous clones of Spanish Eibar origin.
Supressed Walther P38
What appears to be a supressed Walther P38 is seen inter alia guns. The fact of the sale of supressed weapon in the official gun shop is purely cinematic. It is probably the same prop which is seen later in the hands of Mirsky.
Sturmgewehr 44 (Mocked up as a M16)
Custom Compact StG-44
The custom compact StG-44 rifle is also seen in the gun shop. This is the exact same modified Sturmgewehr 44, that was previously used in the 1990 film Road Hawks (Stervyatniki na dorogakh).
