Sannikov Land (Zemlya Sannikova), The
The Sannikov Land (Zemlya Sannikova) is a Soviet 1973 adventure movie loosely based on the eponymous novel by Vladimir Obruchev. The movie is directed by Albert Mkrtchyan and Leonid Popov and starring Vladislav Dvorzhetsky, Oleg Dal and Georgi Vitsin. The story tells about a fiction expedition dedicated to the searches of "Sannikov Land", a legendary island in the Arctic Ocean.
The following weapons were used in the film The Sannikov Land (Zemlya Sannikova):
Nagant M1895 Revolver
In several scenes Evgeniy Krestovskiy (Oleg Dal), Aleksandr Ilyin (Vladislav Dvorzhetsky), and Gubin (Yuri Nazarov) hold Nagant M1895 revolvers (most likely a single piece reused).
Smith & Wesson .44 Double Action
Wealthy merchant Tryphon Stepanovich Perfilyev (Nikolai Gritsenko) gives to his manservant Ignatiy (Georgi Vitsin) a nickel plated Smith & Wesson .44 Double Action revolver with pearl grips (most likely not original S&W but a European, possibly Spanish clone). Larer Ilyin (Vladislav Dvorzhetsky) uses Ignatiy's revolver. This revolver may be the same weapon that appears in several other Mosfilm productions, like Shvedskaya spichka, Semeynoe schastye, and Zhestokiy romans.
Percussion cap musket M1845
During the expedition Ilyin (Vladislav Dvorzhetsky) and Krestovskiy (Oleg Dal) carry Infantry Muskets M1845.
Percussion Cap Carbine
Gubin (Yuri Nazarov) is armed with a short barreled percussion cap musket, possibly a Russian M1849 cavalry carbine.
