Killer's Wedge (Sposob ubiystva)
Killer's Wedge (Способ убийства, Sposob ubiystva) is an Ukrainian 1993 crime thriller directed by Oleg Goyda and based on the novel "Killer's Wedge" by Ed McBain, one of the "87th Precinct" series. Virginia Dodge (Evdokiya Germanova) appears in 87th Precinct with a revolver and a bottle of nitroglycerin. She wants to kill Det. Steve Carella who arrested Frank Dodge, her husband. Virginia takes several detectives and police officers as hostages and waits until Carella, who investigates a suicide turned murder, will return to the precinct.
The following weapons were used in the film Killer's Wedge (Sposob ubiystva):
Nagant M1895 (visually modified)
Virginia Dodge (Evdokiya Germanova) is armed with a revolver that appears to be a heavily visually modified Nagant M1895. The disguise includes vent rib, ejector rod shroud, a fake target rear sight and a new grip. The revolver in disguise resembles Colt Trooper MK V. The same movie prop is also seen in Sheriff's Star, Four Sheets of Plywood and New Adventures of a Yankee in King Arthur's Court.
Smith & Wesson Military & Police
Det. Meyer's (Aleksandr Milyutin) personal firearm is a revolver. It is seen briefly but the shape of the frame, plain grip with lanyard ring, and protected ejector allows to guess that it is a nickel-plated Smith & Wesson Military & Police, probably same prop that appears in numerous productions of Dovzhenko Film Studios, like Cabbages and Kings.
