MosGaz is a 2012 Russian detective TV series. In 1962 a serial killer acts in Moscow. He enters into apartments, pretending to be an employee of MosGas - Moscow gas supply service. The detective of Moscow Ugolovny Rozysk (criminal investigations department) Militsiya Maj. Ivan Petrovich Tcherkasov (Andrey Smolyakov) starts the investigation.
The plot is inspired by the case of Vladimir Ionesyan but generally is far from the real events.
MosGaz opens the TV series about detective Ivan Tcherkasov.
The following weapons were used in the television series MosGaz:
Makarov PM (Air Gun)
Makarov PM / IZh-79
Militsiya Maj. Nikita Pozhidaev (Yuriy Tarasov) holds a PM that appears to be an original gun or a less-lethal version, like IZh-79, as its slide moves when the pistol fires. Sr. Lt. Aleksey Garkusha's (Aleksey Bardukov) pistol is seen in distance and may be also a real PM or less-lethal IZh.
A DP-27 is seen in the prop room of the theater (a strange item for the musical comedy theater).
Tcherkasov gives a pistol to Vasiliy Permyak when sending him on a mission. This pistol turns out to be nothing more than a lighter pistol. When Permyak has to use the gun, it is replaced with a PM (see above).
