I Am a Dummy (Russian: Я - кукла; Ya - kukla, lit. "I Am a Doll") is a 2001 Russian-Ukrainian adventure movie. Viktor Vorobyov, a Russian soldier during the war (the war isn't named but is most likely the First or Second Chechen War) finds himself under attack by a mysterious foreign mercenary sniper, who uses silver bullets to kill soldiers, civilians, and even children.

The following weapons were used in the film I Am a Dummy (Ya - kukla):



Makarov PM

Captain's (Nikolay Chindyaykin) duty sidearm is the Makarov PM, which he uses throughout the movie. Aleksey Ivanovich aka Batya (Daddy) (Sergey Nikonenko) carries another Makarov in a holster. A Makarov PM can be briefly seen in the hands of one of Murat's (Vladimir Episkoposyan) and Aslan's (Igor Novoselov) men.

Stechkin APS

The Stechkin APS is the personal sidearm of female Lithuanian mercenary Gerda (Olga Sumskaya). The main hero, Viktor Vorobyov (Aleksandr Domogarov), uses a Stechkin at the film's climax.

Umarex Walther P88 Compact

Aslan (Igor Novoselov) tries to use a suppressed Umarex Walther P88 Compact. Later, this gun was taken from him by the "brunette" (Inna Pivars), who puts it in the hands of Viktor Vorobyov (Aleksandr Domogarov). Most likely, this is the same movie prop that was used in High Security Vacation (Kanikuly strogogo rezhima).

Assault Rifles


Most of the Russian soldiers are armed with the AKMS.

Sniper Rifles


Sniper (uncredited) uses the TOZ-17. Gerda uses a similar rifle (probably the same movie prop) at the film's climax. Viktor takes it for himself.

Unique X-51

Gerda owns a Unique X-51. Viktor Vorobyov briefly holds it. Gerda correctly identifies it as a "wonderful French rifle". Most likely, this is the same movie prop that was used in Antikiller.

RGD-5 hand grenade

Viktor Vorobyov uses a RGD-5 hand grenade against a mercenary at the film's climax. A Ukrainian mercenary, named Kaban (lt. "Wild Boar") (Yuriy Dumchev) carries another (probably the same movie prop) RGD-5 on his belt.

Viktor uses his teeth to pull the pin of the RGD hand grenade. In this moment, he is not not even holding the grenade, which was freely hanging on the belt, so it's absolutely impossible to pull the pin.
