The Green Wagon (Zelyonyy Furgon) is a 1959 Soviet adventure movie by Genrikh Gabay and based on the same title novel by Aleksandr Kozachinsky. The story takes place in the city of Odessa in 1920. The young lad Volodya Kozachenko (Vladimir Kolokoltsev) joins the Ugolovny Rozysk (Criminal Police) and finds himself against different criminals - from a horse thief "Krasavchick" to the most dangerous criminal in Odessa, a ruthless killer "Cherven".

The second screen adaptation of the original novel appeared in 1983.

Karabiner 98k Rifle

Volodya Kozachenko (Vladimir Kolokoltsev) carries an anachronistic Karabiner 98k rifle. Due to a continuity error, in one scene he switches rifles with Grichenko (Yuri Timoshenko). What appear to be 98k rifles are also seen in hands of soldiers of several armies during the events of Russian civil war.

Unidentified machine guns

Three light machine guns are seen in a scene of the civil war. One of these machine guns appears to be a Maxim with typical spade grips, mounted on a bipod instead of Sokolov wheeled carriage. The spade grips doesn't allow to identify this machine gun as one of such bipod-mounted Maxims as MG08/15, MG08/18 or Maxim-Tokarev.

Three machine guns on bipods are seen on the street. The one at the foreground appears to be based on a Maxim gun.

In a scene of street combat an unknown machine gun stands for a Maxim. It is fitted with Maxim-style water jacket but the barrel is positioned in the center of the jacket, not in the bottom part, so it appears to be a mockup.
