Fools Die on Friday (Duraki umirayut po pyatnitsam)
Fools Die on Friday (Russian: Дураки умирают по пятницам; Duraki umirayut po pyatnitsam) is the 1990 Soviet-Bulgarian Crime Action Movie.
The following weapons were used in the film Fools Die on Friday (Duraki umirayut po pyatnitsam):
The Makarov PM is the standard-duty sidearm of most Soviet policemen. Several criminals also use them. None of these guns are ever fired onscreen.
Andrey Obukhov (Vasiliy Mishchenko) takes a FN Barracuda from a criminal. It is unmistakable because of its semi-hooked trigger guard. How a rare Belgian revolver could appear in a Soviet movie is nothing short of inexplicable.
Custom ZKR 551
In continuty error, Andrey's Barracuda switches to a custom snub-nosed ZKR 551 - the barrel has been manually shortened rather than a factory short barrel (4"). In another continuity error, more than likely because of a lack of 9x18mm blanks, Anatoliy's and Ryzhiy's Makarovs switches to ZKR 551s in firing scenes. The short barrel can explain the enormous muzzle flash. Two props are used in the movie, one with and the other without a front sight. It is worth noting that there were examples of similar shortened revolvers for concealed carry (such as the SAA "Sheriff's Model").
Several Soviet policemen (Militiamen) are armed with AKMSs.
