Sheriff's Star (Zvezda sherifa)
Sheriff's Star (Russian: Звезда шерифа; Zvezda sherifa, Ukrainian: Зiрка шерифа; Zirka Sheryfa) is a 1991 (released in 1992) Soviet (Ukrainian) detective film, based on the novel "The Naked Face" by Sidney Sheldon.
In contrast to the earlier, more famous 1984 movie adaptation by Menahem Golan, the plot of this film is very close to the original book, with the only difference being that the action is set in contemporary times.
The following weapons were used in the film Sheriff's Star (Zvezda sherifa):
Corrupt policeman Frank Angeli (Anatoliy Kotenyov) carries a Makarov PM as his weapon.
Suppressed Makarov PM
One of the killers (Nikolai Gudz) sent by DeMarco has a silenced Makarov PM.
One of DeMarco's men sent to kill Judd has a Colt M1911A1. In the final battle in the incinerator, Judd Stevens (Sergei Martynov) kills one of the criminals and takes his Colt pistol.
Nagant M1895 (visually modified)
A heavily visually modified Nagant M1895 revolver is seen in the sheriff's (Nikolai Litus) holster. It is mocked-up to look like a modern Colt revolver, especially the Trooper MK V. Anthony DeMarco (Aleksandr Martynov) uses a similar revolver at the end of the movie (previously, he took it from Frank Angeli before killing him). It is the same gun which changed hands several times.
This is the exact same modified Nagant revolver that was previously used in the 1988 film New Adventures of a Yankee in King Arthur's Court, and later used in the 1992 film Four Sheets of Plywood, and the 1993 film Killer's Wedge (because all films had the same armorers).
Bruni Olympic 5
Andrew McGreavy (Arnis Licitis) and Frank Angeli (Anatoliy Kotenyov) use a Bruni Olympic 5 revolver in several scenes.
One of the police officers who arrives at the final battle bears a Thompson M1928A1 with a drum magazine.
DeMarco's thugs uses PPS-43 submachine guns with (probably fake) integral suppressors, when they ambush the sheriff (Nikolai Litus) in a tunnel, disguised as garbagemen. One of the police officers who arrives in the final battle also carries a similar submachine gun. It is the same weapon which switches hands several times.
SWAT officers at the end of the battle in the incinerator are armed with the KS-23 shotgun.
In the scene in the incinerator, one police officer is seen with a rifle that appears to be the same StG 44 with scope and custom compensator that will later be used in The Plane flies to Russia (which also was filmed in Crimea).
