Other Weapons

"Spy Rifle"

The weapon that Steve Brewstner (Vladimir Menshov) was intended to use in his mission is a non-firing movie prop that was specially made for this film. It uses parts of various real guns (some of them were taken from Heckler & Koch G3). Later this movie prop was used in several other Soviet/Russian movies.
