Original Theatrical Poster
Wedding in Malinovka (Svadba v Malinovke) is a 1967 Soviet action comedy movie directed by Andrei Tutyshkin. The story is set in an Ukrainian village during the Russian Civil war.
The following weapons were used in the film Wedding in Malinovka (Svadba v Malinovke):
Nagant M1895 revolvers are used by Red Army commander Nazar Duma (Vladimir Samojlov), his second-in-command Petrya Bessarabian (Nikolay Slichenko), the chief of brigands Gritsian (Grigori Abrikosov) and retired soldier Yashka the Artilleryman (Mikhail Pugovkin).
Nagant M1895 - 7.62x38N. Note the angular front sight which was used from 1930s.
Gritsian with his Nagant revolver. Note the extended position of the ejector rod which can be seen in several movies. This is a common defect of old revolvers.
Nazar Duma and Petrya Bessarabian carry Nagants in holsters.
Yashka the Artilleryman cleans his Nagant.

Gritsian carries a Nagant and a Mauser C96
tucked at his belt.
Petrya holds a Nagant. His revolver also has extended ejector rod (it can be same prop reused or just another sufficiently worn Nagant).
Yashka aims his Nagant (again the gun with extended ejector rod) at Popandopulo who tried to escape in women disguise.
Popandopulo (Mikhail Vodyanoy), the second-in-command of brigands, carries several handguns including Reichsrevolver M1879. This revolver, wiped nearly to white, appears to be the same prop, used in numerous Lenfilm productions, notably Priklucheniya Sherlocka Holmsa i Doktora Watsona.

Smith & Wesson 4th Model
Another handgun used by Popandopulo (Mikhail Vodyanoy) is a compact Smith & Wesson revolver, supposedly a Smith & Wesson 4th Model or its clone of Belgian or Spanish manufacture. This revolver is also seen in other Lenflim productions, notably Priklucheniya Sherlocka Holmsa i Doktora Watsona.
Smith & Wesson 4th Model Double Action - .32
Popandopulo aims Smith & Wesson revolver at Smetana (later in the same scene he changed this small revolver to larger and more "frightening" Reichsrevolver
). The shape of the front sight and the trigger guard match the 4th Model.

Mosin Nagant M1938 Carbine
Many of Red Army men and brigands are armed with out of time Mosin Nagant M1938 Carbines. Mostly the carbines lack hooded front sights, probably to make them look more like early versions of Mosin Nagant.
