I'm a Detective (Russian title Ya, sledovatel..., Georgian title Me, gamomdziebeli...; more correct English title would be "I, a Detective") is a Soviet Georgian 1972 (filmed 1971) detective movie directed by Georgi Kalatozishvili and based on the story by the Vayner Brothers. A detective of Tbilisi Ugolovny Rozysk (criminal police) Capt. Georgi Mikeladze (Vakhtang Kikabidze) investigates an armed robbery. The investigation leads him from Georgia to Estonia and Latvia where at last Mikeladze together with his collegues from Tallin arrests the criminal.

The movie is the first screen adaptation of the original story. In 2016 the novel was adapted once more as a part of TV series Sledovatel Tikhonov.

The following weapons were used in the film I'm a Detective (Ya, sledovatel...):

Unknown Long Guns

Barrels of several long guns are seen in gun rack in the office of railroad security. "Frolovka" bolt action shotgun is a possible guess as they were widely used by security guards in USSR but it cannot be proved.

Four barrels are seen at the background.


Posters with various firearms, including AK assult rifles, are seen in the ballistic lab.
7.62x25mm cartriges.
