Peasant Son (Krestyanskiy syn) is a Soviet 1975 adventure war movie, adapted from same title novel by Raisa Grigoryeva and directed by Irina Tarkovskaya. During the Russian Civil war a peasant lad Kostya Baykov joins Red partisans.

The following weapons were used in the film Peasant Son (Krestyanskiy syn):


Nagant M1895

Nagant M1895 revolvers are widely used in the movie by Reds, notably Ignat Gomozov (Yuriy Sherstnyov) and Andrey Petrakov (Georgiy Burkov), and Whites. Fed'ka Poklonov (Vyacheslav Glushkov) and some other village kids also hold Nagants in several scenes.

Note: see additional images of talk page.

Mauser C96

Andrey Petrakov (Georgiy Burkov) gets a Mauser C96 that belonged to the chieftan of Anarchists (Rasmi Dzhabrailov) and uses the pistol in following scenes. This C96 appears to be Wartime Commercial model.

Pre-War dated Mauser C96 "Broomhandle" Commercial Version - 7.63x25mm Mauser. Wartime Commercial version looks generally the same.

Mosin Nagant Short Rifle

Red partisans, White Army soldiers and bandits are also armed with custom shortened Mosin Nagant M1891/30s. Visually they resemble M1907 Carbines. Such props are seen in several other Gorky Film Studio productions.

Unidentified Rifle

A partisan is seen carrying a rifle that has protruding magazine but of different shape than Mosin Nagant rifles. This gun may be some Mannlicher model though the bolt handle is positioned differently.

Machine Guns

Lewis Machine Gun

A Lewis machine gun is seen in several scenes, at first used by bandits and then by Red partisans. During the final battle the same Lewis is mounted on Sokolov mount (absolutely incredible combination). This movie prop, identified by a makeshift barrel cover (supposedly it's a damaged piece that was very roughly repared on cinema factory), is seen in several other Gorky Film Studio productions, including Konets imperatora taygi, Khleb, zoloto, nagan, Ne stavte Leshemu kapkany... and Smotri v oba!.

Other Weapons

RGD-5 Hand Grenade

In one scene partisan Pasha (Aleksandr Yanvaryov) holds an egg-shaped hand grenade. As it seems to lack external ribbing, it appears to be a heavily out of time RGD-5.
