Zerograd (Gorod Zero)
Zerograd (Gorod Zero; another English release title Zero City) is a 1988 Soviet comedy-drama directed by Karen Shakhnazarov. Aleksey Varakin (Leonid Filatov), an engineer of a factory in Moscow, is sent in a business trip to a small town. Upon arriving, Varakin finds out that nearly everybody in the town acts strange and even seems to be crazy. Varakin is trapped in the town, despite his attempts to leave it.
The following weapons were used in the film Zerograd (Gorod Zero):
Nagant M1895 (long barreled)
A long barreled version of Nagant M1895 is seen in hands of a restaurant chef Nikolaev (Yevgeni Zernov).
Custom Snub Nose Nagant M1895
In the scene, depicting the prosecutor's version of Nikolaev's death, a bearded murderer (uncredited) fires a revolver in air to imitate the suicide gunshot. His snub nose revolver is seen very blurry and unclear but the shape of the frame looks Nagant-ish, and the revolver is very possibly the same custom snub nose Nagant with wide Colt-style grips that is seen in several Mosfilm productions, notably in Chelovek s bulvara Kaputsinov.
Two Flintlock Pistols are seen in the exposition of the local museum, depicting the Time of Troubles (16th-17th century). In reality these pistols are of late 18th-early 19th century.
Rifles and Muskets
Mosin Nagant M1891/30
Wax sculptures in the local museum hold Mosin Nagant M1891/30 rifles with bayonets (Note: all "wax figures" in the museum are played by live actors).
Musket / Arquebuse
Several long guns, kind of muskets or arquebuses, are also seen in the exposition about the Time of Troubles.
An engraved, long barreled flintlock blunderbuss is an exibit of the local museum. The director of the museum calls it a pistol and claims that the gun belonged to Prince Pyotr Urusov, a prominent figure of the Time of Troubles. In reality the blunderbuss looks more like a 18th or 19th century hunting gun.
Single Barreled Shotgun
One of the long guns in the exposition about the Time of Troubles turns out to be a rather modern Single Barreled Shotgun.
A wax figure of a Soviet Army soldier of Afghan war era holds an AK-47 assault rifle.
