Alamases's Gorge (Ushchelye Alamasov)
Alamases's Gorge (Russian: Ущелье Аламасов; Ushchelye Alamasov) is a 1937 Soviet adventure movie. A group of Soviet-Mongolian explorers enter a wild mountain range far from civilization to locate a valuable oil field. The native peoples don't enter this region due to mysterious creatures called Almas that live in the mountains. The explorers reach their destination and find hostile soldiers (the hostile state isn't named, but the uniform and weaponry of the soldiers resembles that of the Imperial Japanese Army), which have secretly invaded Mongolia. Now, they must fight to defend their discovery and unravel the mystery of the Almas.
Note: An Almas is a mysterious humanoid creature from the folk religions of Central Asian native peoples, whose existence currently has never been proven, but never disproven. It is often described as a large, hairy, bipedal creature, not unlike North America's Bigfoot.
The following weapons were used in the film Alamases's Gorge (Ushchelye Alamasov):
Mauser C96 "Broomhandle"
The enemy commander (Ir. Kan) and several of his soldiers uses Mauser C96 "Broomhandle" pistols.
Vyacheslav Antonovich Viskovsky (Ivan Koval-Samborsky) carries a Tokarev TT-33 in a holster.

Mosin Nagant M1907 Carbine
Mosin Nagant M1907 Carbines are also used by the explorers.
Mauser Gewehr 1898
At least one of the Soviet-Mongolian explorers is armed with a German Gewehr 98.
Several characters including Dyndyp, Granya Steblina (Aleksandra Popova), and Krylatkin (Nikolay Poplavsky) use TOZ-8 rifles.
Arisaka Type 38
Bayonet-attached Arisaka Type 38s are the standard long gun of the enemy soldiers. Several partisans, including their commander Wáng Jì Liáng (Li Den Ten), are armed with the Arisaka Type 38. Vyacheslav Antonovich Viskovsky also carries an Arisaka Type 38.
An enemy soldier uses a Lewis Gun. It isn't fired onscreen.
Colt 1895 Automatic Machine Gun
Several enemy soldiers fire Colt 1895 Automatic Machine Guns. Dyndyp captures one. These machine guns are most likely Russian contract M1895/14 models.
Lewis Model 1924
A Soviet R-5 combat plane is equipped with Twin Lewis Model 1924 machine guns. Note: The "Model 1924" is a Soviet designation for infantry Lewis machine guns converted for aircraft service. They were used on some Soviet planes in the late 1920s until replaced by the Degtyaryov DA. Unlike "true" aircraft Lewis Guns, the "Model 1924" still had the radiator fins and was fitted only with 47-round drum magazines.
Several Soviet-Mongolian explorers use improvised grenades made from tin cans.
