Last Hunt (Poslednyaya okhota), The
The Last Hunt (Poslednyaya okhota) is a Soviet 1980 (filmed 1979) adventure movie directed by Igor Sheshukov. The story is set in 1920s on Chukotka, the most remote northeast area of Russia. An American seal hunter John Horsfield (Oleg Borisov) finds out that a large store of gold and furs is located in a Chukcha settlement. He plans to take this wealth by force. Local teacher Sergei (Yuriy Bogatyryov), pacifistically minded person, tries to convince Horsfield to leave, but at last he has to fight against the invaders.
The following weapons were used in the film The Last Hunt (Poslednyaya okhota):
Webley .455 Mk VI
Smith & Wesson New Model No.3
When John Horsfield fires at navigator Crane (uncredited), his Webley switches to Smith & Wesson New Model No.3 revolver and then back to Webley.
In the final scene a Red commander (uncredited) carries a Mauser C96 pistol in holster.
Winchester Model 1895
Winchester Model 1895 rifles are most widely used long guns in the movie. They are used by Sergei (Yuriy Bogatyryov), store manager Ivan Sergeevich Shatokhin (Nikolay Grinko), Chukchas, including shaman Keleuge (Maksim Munzuk), Val (Marina Likhun) and young hunter Gimalkot (Aleksei Oorzak), and nearly all crewmembers of Horsfield's schooner Virginia, including John Horsfield (Oleg Borisov), Stan Stewart (Algimantas Masiulis), hunters and sailors Schulz (Afanasiy Trishkin), Riff (Ivan Bortnik), Frank Price (Valentin Bukin), Drake (Aleksey Zharkov), Beddoes (Anatoliy Rudakov), Lamley (Anatoliy Bystrov), and unnamed ones (Ivan Ganzha, Aleksandr Pashutin and Vasili Popov). Russian Contract rifles are most widely seen; also there is a single sporterized Winchester 1895 and Model 1895 Carbine. These two guns often pass from hands to hands, switching with standard M1895 rifles.
Sporterized Vetterli Model 1869/70
During the final shootout Schulz's (Afanasiy Trishkin) Winchester 1895 switches to a sporterized Vetterli Model 1869/70 rifle. This gun has the handguard shortcut for most of its length, retain the original 11-shot tube magazine, and has the slightly shortened barrel. There is a possibility that same prop was used in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson (filmed by same studio and same year) to portray Col. Moran's airgun.
Mosin Nagant M1938 Carbine
Mosin Nagant rifles that appear to be anachronistic M1938 Carbines are briefly seen in hands of some Chukcha hunters and Red Army soldiers.
Mosin Nagant/Frolov Shotgun
What appear to be a Mosin Nagant/Frolov Shotgun is briefly seen in hands of aged Red soldier.
A Maxim machine gun is mounted on Red patrol boat in the opening scene. A Maxim is also seen on the camp of Red unit. Machine guns are seen only in distance, so it's impossible to identify the exact version (though M1910/30 is most credible).
