Grazhdanin nachalnik is a Russian 2001 detective TV series. Investigator of town prosecutor's office Pavel Nikolaevich Pafnutyev (Yuriy Stepanov) confronts local organised crime net, from ordinary robbers to corrupt high rank officials.

The series was followed by two sequels in 2005 and 2006.

Note: the original title cannot be translated to English. While "grazhdanin" means "citizen", and "nachalnik" means "chief" or "superior", a direct translation of the whole phrase is senseless. "Grazhdanin nachalnik" is a Russian language idiom meaning law enforcement personnel. It comes from the form of address adopted from the early Soviet times between law enforcers and arrestees or convicts. The usual form of address in the USSR was "Tovarish" (comrade), and "Grazhdanin" (citizen) was used in cases where it was necessary to emphasize the legal distance between people.

The following weapons were used in the television series Grazhdanin nachalnik:


FN Barracuda

Rakhimych's henchman "Valet" (Sergey Pinchuk) uses an FN Barracuda revolver during the robbery.

PM pistol is a service sidearm of the main character of the series, investigator of town prosecutor's office Pavel Nikolaevich Pafnutyev (Yuriy Stepanov). PMs are also used by Militsia Maj. Shalanda (Sergey Serov) and some minor characters.

Andrey (Egor Beroev) widely uses a PSM pistol that previously belonged to a criminal businessman Ilya Goldobov (Vladimir Zaytsev). The white marking on the slide allows to identify the pisol as non-lethal version, most likely rubber-firing PSM-R (also known as MP-78-9TM) or gas- and rubber-firing IZh-78-9T.

Gang boss Mikhail Rakhimovich Osadchiy alias Rakhimych (Tagir Rakhimov) and his henchmen also use TT pistols.
