The Departed (original title Gorod ("The Town")) is a 2017 (filmed 2015) Russian crime TV series. The plot is set in 1961 in a small Soviet town of Strunyovo. The crime rate in the town is very low, unlike the neighboring towns and villages. While investigating a murder, the detective of local Ugolovny Rozysk (criminal investigation department) Rodion Stotskiy finds out the the reason of the serenity in Strunyovo is that the town is the center of the wide crime web, headed by the legendary crime boss Papa ("Dad"). Numerous criminals pose as ordinary, innocent townspersons, but when Stotskiy finally uncovers Papa, he has to withstand in the war against the ruthless and well-organised gang.
In 2018 the series was followed by the sequel Gurzuf (English release title The Departed - Season 2).
The following weapons were used in the television series The Departed (Gorod):
TT-33 pistols are used by Militsiya personnel, notably the detective of Ugolovny Rozysk Sr. Lieutenant Rodion Ilyich Stotskiy (Pyotr Fyodorov), Sgt. Taras Zaytsev (Evgeniy Antropov), nicknamed "Tarasik" (a diminutive from Taras), and the head of local Militsiya Capt. Ivan Zakharovich Liznyuk (Igor Chernevich), and also by numerous criminals. Both pre- and post-1947 versions are seen.
Tokarev TT-33 - 7.62x25mm Tokarev. Pre-1947 version.

Stotskiy and Tarasik hold their pistols during the mock execution of Yashka Ilyin aka Yashka the Gypsy. After a single shot, Stotskiy's pistol jams.
A criminal Vovchik Potapov (Denis Bespalyy) fires at Stotskiy during the Militsiya
operation against money counterfeiters.
Crime boss Pyotr Gavrilovich Shunin aka Zmey ("Snake") (Sergey Sosnovskiy
) holds a TT in the scene on the sawmill.
A close-up of Stotskiy's TT in the same scene.
Stotskiy with a TT in hand arrests Yashka the Gypsy (Vyacheslav Chepurchenko
) who carries a lot of weapons: a Karabiner 98k
rifles, three TT pistols and a Makarov PM
pistol. A TT in Yashka's right hand is a CO2 Gletcher replica (see below), TT pistols in his left hand and in his belt appear to be genuine guns.
Tarasik holds a TT of post-1947 version; in previous scenes he had a pre-1947 pistol.
Capt. Liznyuk holds a TT.
Criminal Genych (Vitaliy Moskovoy) holds a TT. A strange pin is seen in the back part of frame below the slide. Possibly it has something with the deactivating of the pistol.
Criminal Grisha Ivolgin aka Drozd ("Thrush") (Mikhail Gorskiy
) fires his TT during the bandits' attack on the Militsiya
Stotskiy fires at bandits. In this scene he has a different pistol, with differently blued frame and slide.
In the scene on the sawmill, CO2 Gletcher TT pistols are used instead of real guns that are mostly seen throughout the series.
An unnamed Militsioner
aims a TT. Note the white inscription on the slide.
Yashka the Gypsy (Vyacheslav Chepurchenko
) holds a Gletcher TT in his right hand (this pistol is seen better on the next screenshot). TT pistols in his left hand and in his belt appear to be genuine guns.
Sgt. Taras Zaytsev ("Tarasik") takes the Gletcher from Yashka. Again the white inscription on the slide is seen.

Renat Galimov (Azamat Nigmanov
) (at the right). Galimov's TT is also a Gletcher.
Militsiya personnel also use Makarov PM pistols, notably seen in hands of Starshina Nazar Akimovich Barsukov (Vladimir Yumatov) and Kostya Nilin (Daniil Islamov), and of Egor Chashchin (Vladislav Abashin) who helps Militsiya during the climactic battle. PMs are also by some criminals. All PMs in the series turn out to be blank- or gas-firing versions and airsoft replicas of several models. While they are not identified for sure, some guesses are possible.
For comparison: MP-371 blank-firing pistol.
For comparison: MP-654K, early version - .177. Note the lack of the external extractor. Late version of MP-654K have the extractor on place.
Nilin holds a PM during the raid on a brothel, revealed in a women's hostel. This pistol with the narrowed front part is possibly a blank-firing MP-371.
Barsukov holds a similar PM in the same scene.
A criminal holds a PM in the scene on the sawmill. This gun lacks any kind of extractor; such feature allows to make a guess that this is a CO2 replica MP-654K of early version.
The grip of a PM is in the belt of Yashka the Gypsy (Vyacheslav Chepurchenko
). This pistol seems to be a blank-firing version rather than an airsoft one.
A good view of Galimov's PM holster that looks empty. Galimov is seen only with a TT that wouldn't fit in PM holster.
Egor Chashchin holds a PM that was given to him by Stotskiy before the bandits' attack.
Crime boss Uncle Pasha (Pavel Poymalov) hands a PM to one of his henchmen during the attack on the Militsiya
percinct. This pistol is possibly the MP-371.

A Karabiner 98k rifle is seen among the weapons of Yashka the Gypsy (Vyacheslav Chepurchenko). This rifle is most likely a non-firing Denix replica. During the climactic battle two rifles that also seem to be 98k are seen in Uncle Pasha's car.
Karabiner 98k - 7.92x57mm Mauser. Manufactured in Germany, 1937.
