At Map Grid 45 (a direct translation of the original title V kvadrate 45) is a Soviet 1956 adventure movie directed by Yuri Vyshinsky. Valentin Volgin (Vsevolod Platov) is a rookie smokejumper. During his first mission he acts faint-heartedly but later Volgin has a chance to prove his bravery and skill when during the operation in near-border region he encounters a group of foreign spies.

The following weapons were used in the film At Map Grid 45 (V kvadrate 45):


Tokarev TT-33

A pair of unnamed saboteurs (Ivan Voronov and Nikolay Smorchkov) are armed with Tokarev TT-33 pistols. Valentin Volgin (Vsevolod Platov) captures one of these TTs and uses it in shootout. Maj. Yakovlev (Boris Bityukov) holds a TT in the final scene.

Another Shmelyov's pistol is a pocket Steyr-Pieper M1909. It is loaded with a bullet-size container with a microfilm inside. In the final scene Maj. Rumyantsev (Ivan Solovyov) holds the pistol, taken from Shmelyov.

TOZ-B Double Barreled Shotgun

In several scenes Boris Shmelyov (Vladimir Zeldin), his unnamed companion (Ivan Voronov), old forester Grigory Fedotov (Nikolai Khryashchikov), and Valentin Volgin (Vsevolod Platov) are seen with Double Barreled Shotguns with exposed hammers. TOZ-B, a venerable shotgun that was manufactured from 1902, is the most possible guess for mid-1950s.
