Gavroche (Russian Гаврош; Gavrosh) is the 1937 Soviet drama, very loosely based on the novel Les Misérables of Victor Hugo.

The following weapons were used in the film Gavroche:


Percussion Cap Pistol

Several characters, including Enjolras (Ivan Novoseltsev), Javert (Andrey Korablyov), Jean Prouvaire (Ivan Bobrov) and Marseille (Vasili Novikov) use Percussion Cap Pistols

Javert (Andrey Korablyov) brandishes his pistol. Although percussion cap pistols existed in those times, this pistol can be ID'd as Russian M1854 Naval, that's absolute couldn't appear in 1832 France.
Enjolras (Ivan Novoseltsev) with the pistol on the belt. It seems that's a different model of the pistol.
Jean Prouvaire (Ivan Bobrov) with the pistol on his belt.
Marseille (Vasili Novikov) holds his pistol.

...and fires it.

Flintlock Pistol

Gavroche (Nikolay Smorchkov (II)), Touchet (Dmitriy Popov), and several Republicans use Flintlock Pistols.

Rifles & Muskets

Charleville Musket

Several Republicans (iqluding Gavroche (Nikolay Smorchkov (II)), Jean Prouvaire (Ivan Bobrov), Touchet (Dmitriy Popov), and Madeleine (Nina Zorskaya)) as well as near all Royalist soldiers use Charleville Muskets.

Gras Model 1874

Several heavily anachronistic Gras Model 1874 rifles can be seen in the hands of several Republicans. A large number of Gras were purchased by the Russian Empire during WW1, and a lot of them were still at hand in the late 1930s.
