Sinichkin (Fyodor Panasenko), the Commissar of the Odessa revolutionary Committee, carries a Mauser C96 "Bolo" pistol. During the funeral of slain Red Guards, same pistol is carried by Rodion Zhukov (Sergey Nikonenko). "Bolo" is out of time for 1917.

World War II Colt M1911A1 - .45 ACP. This was an issued U.S. Army pistol with parkerized finish, thus the official designation of M1911A1
Bachey's M1911A1 and a box of ammo. Note that the box has inscription in German, and the cartridges look very different from .45 ACP.

Gen. Zarya-Zaryanitskiy (Aleksandr Lazarev, Sr.), Iren's father, owns a compact pistol that is seen briefly and unclear. It resembles Astra 300 but this guess cannot be proved.

Maxim M1910 or M1910/30
Red Guards use Maxim machine guns. It's hard to say if these are Maxim M1910 or Maxim M1910/30 (if the water jacket is smooth, Maxim is most likely M1910, and if it is corrugated, both M1910 and M1910/30 are possible).
