Adventures of Kalle the Detective (a direct translation of original Russian title Priklyucheniya Kalle-syschika, Lithuanian title Seklio Kalio nuotykiai) is a Soviet Lithuanian 1978 (filmed 1976) made for TV adventure family movie, directed by Arunas Zebriunas and based on a series of stories by Astrid Lindgren. Kalle Blomkvist is a Swedish boy, fascinated with detective work. Together with his friends Kalle manages to solve a real crime.

The following weapons were used in the film Adventures of Kalle the Detective (Priklyucheniya Kalle-syschika):

Nagant M1895 (visually modified)

The Nagant M1895 revolvers, visually modified to resemble old percussion-era revolvers (archaism for the late 1940s - early 50s, when the action takes place), especially the Roger & Spencer model, are handguns of criminals Arthur Berg alias "Pale" (Jonas Aleksa) and Krook alias "Nasty" (Donatas Katkus); the latter carries two revolvers in shoulder holsters. Revolvers are fitted with long faceted barrels. Three props were used in the movie, two with wide grips and the third one with intact Nagant grip with lanyard ring. These revolvers look similar to the guns, used in Smoke and Shorty, filmed by same studio.

Note: see additional images on talk page.
