Witch (Vidma), The
The Witch (Ukrainian: Відьма; Vidma, Russian: Ведьма; Vedma (also known as Konotopska Vidma, "The Witch of Konotop", in order to distinguish the movie from many other films of the same name) is a 1990 Soviet Ukrainian language fantasy-mystery-erotic comedy, based on the novel Konotopska vidma (The Witch of Konotop) by Hryhory Kvitka-Osnovyanenko.
The following weapons were used in the film The Witch (Vidma):
IZh-18 (Sawn-Off, mocked up as percussion cap pistols)
Sotnik Zabryokha (Bohdan Benyuk) and nearly all Cossacks carry Sawn-Off IZh-18s mocked-up as percussion cap pistols on their belts. The ID can be provided by the crude grip and distinctive spur on the trigger guard.
Several Cossacks can be seen armed with a Percussion Shotgun. Due to the very large caliber, they may be genuine percussion cap hunting guns known in old Russia as "shompolka" (a slang term from the Russian word shompol, which means ramrod). Such guns were produced in the late 19th to early 20th centuries and used until the mid 20th century, especially in Siberia.
