Sannikov Land (Zemlya Sannikova), The
The Sannikov Land (Zemlya Sannikova) is a Soviet 1973 adventure movie loosely based on the eponymous novel by Vladimir Obruchev. The movie is directed by Albert Mkrtchyan and Leonid Popov and starring Vladislav Dvorzhetsky, Oleg Dal and Georgi Vitsin. The story tells about a fiction expedition dedicated to the searches of "Sannikov Land", a legendary island in the Arctic Ocean.
The following weapons were used in the film The Sannikov Land (Zemlya Sannikova):
Nagant M1895 Revolver
Several charaters are seen with Nagant M1895 revolvers.
Smith & Wesson Revolver
Ignatiy (Georgi Vitsin) carries a nickel plated revolver with pearl grips that resembles Smith & Wesson New Model No.3. Supposedly it is a Spanish or Belgian copy. Larer Ilyin (Vladislav Dvorzhetsky) uses Ignatiy's revolver. This revolver may be the same weapon that appears in Family Happiness four years before.
Percussion cap musket M1845
During the expedition Ilyin (Vladislav Dvorzhetsky) and Krestovskiy (Oleg Dal) carry Infantry Muskets M1845. Gubin (Yuri Nazarov) is armed with a carbine version of this weapon (possibly M1849 Cavalry Carbine).
