Brother (Brat) is a 1997 cult Russian thriller film directed by Aleksey Balabanov. The story revolves around a young Russian man named Danila (Sergei Bodrov Jr.), who goes to join his older brother in St. Petersburg. But Danila's older sibling is a gangster and a cold-blooded contract-killer. Danila is asked to kill someone, and soon learns that he finds killing easier than living (people who don't speak Russian may find it ironic and humorous that the Russian word for "brother" is "brat", so any of us who have brothers will find humor in that translation.)
The following weapons are featured in the film Brother:
Danila's first gun is a locally-produced .22 LR revolver (which apparently has no official name). Cheap revolvers such as this one were produced in the 1990s by one of the gangs which operated out of the Moscow Suburbs. Many people wrongly identify it as a Nagant revolver, due to the somewhat similar appearance to a Nagant.
A Makarov PM is used by "Utyug" ("Iron") (Vladimir Labetskiy), one of Krugly's henchmen.
A M1911 is used by Viktor (Viktor Sukhorukov).
Krugly's main henchman (Aleksey Sevastyanov) carries a Walther P38.
A suppressed Tokarev TT-33 is used by Mole (Aleksey Poluyan).
12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun
Danila buys a double-barreled shotgun (presumably a TOZ-63) from his drunken neighbor (Vitaliy Matveev) and saws down the barrels.
A suppressed submachine gun is seen in Viktor's kitchen, with a design somewhat reminiscent of the Sa 23. This is a custom-built submachine gun, one of the countless that were made in the former USSR in the 1990s by criminals and rebels, and whose quality ranged from "crumbling-in-your-hands" to "factory-made quality".
An M16A1 is seen in the hands of a model on a poster at the end of the film.
