Sherlock: The Russian Chronicles (Sherlok v Rossii ("Sherlock in Russia") is a Russian 2020 TV series directed by Nurbek Egen. This is a non-canon version of the adventures of Sherlock Holmes. The trail of Jack the Ripper leads Holmes (Maksim Matveev) to the Russian Empire. In St. Petersburg he meets Dr. Kartsev (Vladimir Mishukov) who eventually becomes "Russian Watson". Holmes and Kartsev solve not only the mystery of Jack the Ripper but also several other cases that puzzle the Russian criminal police.
The following weapons were used in the television series Sherlock: The Russian Chronicles (Sherlok v Rossii):
Nagant M1895 "Blef"
Nagant M1895 revolvers, anachronistic for 1888 when the plot is set, are widely used throughout the series. Close-ups reveal most if not all the screen guns as "Blef" blank-firing version. They are used by Sherlock Holmes (Maksim Matveev), Dr. Ilya Philimonovich Kartsev (Vladimir Mishukov), Kholmogorov (Gennadiy Alimpiev), Luka Sviridov (Sergey Mardar), Arseniy Petrovich Mogolev (Ilya Savelyev), criminal Konstantin Naydyonov alias "Kat" (Evgeniy Romantsov) and his henchman "Letopisets" ("Chronicler") (Aleksandr Averin), Russian police personnel, and in the opening scene, set in London, by Dr. Watson (Andrey Feskov) and Inspector Lestrade (Aleksey Vdovin).

While most guns in the series are replicas, a genuine Kropatschek Rifle is used by "Kat"'s henchman. It is fitted with a WW2 era sniper scope, supposedly a German Zeiss ZF39 (19th century scopes are similar, but have a simpler design). Holmes identified this gun as a Berdan Rifle.
