Fight at the Crossroads (a direct translation of original title Boy na Perekryostke) is a Soviet 1982 made for TV two-part adventure movie directed by Anatoly Tyutyunnik. In 1918 in Moscow Chekists disclose a counter-revolutionary conspiracy.

The following weapons were used in the film Fight at the Crossroads (Boy na Perekryostke):


Nagant M1895

Nagant M1895 revolvers are widely used by Chekists and conspirators, including Michel Lafar (Maksud Imatshoyev), Yunna Ruzic (Tatyana Kondyreva), Kalugin (Valeri Ryzhakov), Ilya Frumin (Aleksandr Ignatusha) and Kovalkov (Valeriy Zhukov). All revolvers are of anachronistic post-1930 version.

Mauser C96

Commissar of Cheka Kalugin's (Valeri Ryzhakov) personal sidearm is a Mauser C96 pistol (some features of his pistol match M1930 version, and some - classic C96). In the scene when Martin Ivanovich Lacis (Vsevolod Abdulov), high rank Cheka official, is arrested by a group of anti-Bolshevik Socialists-Revolutionaries (SRs), the latters are armed with C96 pistols.

Pre-War dated Mauser C96 "Broomhandle" Commercial Version - 7.63x25mm Mauser

A close view. The pistol has smooth rails on each side of the barrel extension that matches M1930 (classic C96 has milled rails) but the barrel lacks typical step. Possibly the prop was assembled of parts of several different version.
SRs arrest Lacis in his office. A man in center (Yuri Votyakov) holds a Mauser while his companion carries a Mauser in holster.

Walther PPK

A Walther PPK, heavyly anachronistic for 1918, is seen in hands of Boris Travnikov (Vladimir Sedov), one of the leaders of anti-Bolshevik Society for Defence of Motherland and Freedom, and his aide (Pavel Remezov).

Other Weapons

F-1 Hand Grenade

While searching conspirators' weapons cache, Chekist Ilya Frumin (Aleksandr Ignatusha) finds a number of hand grenades, including anachronistic F-1s. Screen grenades appear to be mockups, as they have different shape of the body.

An equally anachronistic RGD-33 is seen among the grenades, found by Frumin. It lacks the fragmentation sleeve.
