MosGaz is a 2012 Russian detective TV series. In 1962 a serial killer acts in Moscow. He enters into apartments, pretending to be an employee of MosGas - Moscow gas supply service. The detective of Moscow Ugolovny Rozysk (criminal investigations department) Militsiya Maj. Ivan Petrovich Tcherkasov (Andrey Smolyakov) starts the investigation.

The plot is inspired by the case of Vladimir Ionesyan but generally is far from the real events.

MosGaz opens the TV series about detective Ivan Tcherkasov.

The following weapons were used in the television series MosGaz:


Makarov PM (Air Gun)

Makarov PM pistols that are seen in hands of Maj. Ivan Petrovich Tcherkasov (Andrey Smolyakov) and operative Vasiliy Permyak (Anatoliy Gushchin) are air guns.

For comparison: MP-654K, early version - .177. Note the lack of the external extractor. Late version of MP-654K have the extractor on place.
Deadly wounded Permyak holds his pistol. The small bore allows to guess that this is an air gun.
Tcherkasov holds his PM. Again the pistol has the small bore and most likely is an air gun.
Another view of the pistol. Note the lack of the external extractor. The gun has Baikal logo on the slide.
Tcherkasov holds his pistol in another scene.

Makarov PM / IZh-79

Militsiya Maj. Nikita Pozhidaev (Yuriy Tarasov) holds a PM that appears to be an original gun or a less-lethal version, like IZh-79, as its slide moves when the pistol fires. Sr. Lt. Aleksey Garkusha's (Aleksey Bardukov) pistol is seen in distance and may be also a real PM or less-lethal IZh.

For comparison: Makarov PM - 9x18mm Makarov
A PM is seen in Garkusha's hand.
Pozhidaev fires at escaping suspect.

Machine Guns


A DP-27 is seen in the prop room of the theater (a strange item for the musical comedy theater).

Degtyaryov DP-27 - 7.62x54mm R
The typical magazine and a part of the barrel is seen.

Other Weapons

Lighter Pistol

Tcherkasov gives a pistol to Vasiliy Permyak when sending him on a mission. This pistol turns out to be nothing more than a lighter pistol. When Permyak has to use the gun, it is replaced with a PM (see above).
