Unknown Smith & Wesson Revolver
On some of the video covers of the film Fyodor Sokolov (Dmitry Kharatyan) can be seen holding a revolver which is similar to both Smith & Wesson Model 36 Chief's Special and Smith & Wesson Model 37 Airweight. It may be hand-drawn (or, perhaps, salvaged from an unrelated photo) into the picture, so it may be an unclear depiction of one of those revolvers.
