Stolypin... Unlearned Lessons (Stolypin... Nevyuchennye uroki) is a Russian 2006 TV series depicting the biography of Pyotr Arkadyevich Stolypin, Russian politician of early 20th century, Prime Minister and Minister of Internal Affairs of the Russian Empire.

The following weapons were used in the television series Stolypin... Unlearned Lessons (Stolypin... Nevyuchennye uroki):


Nagant M1895

Nagant M1895 revolvers are widely used by Socialist Revolutionary (SR) fighters, including the head of the SR Combat Organization Yevno Fishelevich Azef (Aleksandr Stroev) and his comrades Boris Viktorovich Savinkov (Aleksey Devotchenko), Ivan Kalyayev (Andrey Arshinnikov), Dmitriy Bogrov (Roman Gabria) and others, both real and fictional faces. Nagant revolvers are also seen in hands of Russian Imperial police and gendarmes personnel, including the Director of Police Department Gen. Pavel Grigoryevich Kurlov (Valeriy Doronin) and Col. Aleksandr Vasilyevich Gerasimov (Igor Sergeev). All Nagants are of post-1930 version.

Unidentified Revolver 1

In several scenes SR fighters use compact revolvers of two different models. Both are most likely modern gas- or rubber-firing guns, standing for Bulldog revolvers that were widely used in reality. The first of these revolvers is 6-shot and has short ejector rod shroud.

Izhmekh RS-31 / RG-31

The second revolver of two atypical models is 5-shot and has very short barrel with full length ejector rod shroud. It can be identified as Izhmekh RS-31 / RG-31 due the cylinder release and characteristic grips.

FN Model 1922

FN Model 1922 pistols are used by SR fighters, notably by Ivan Kalyayev (Andrey Arshinnikov) and Dmitriy Bogrov (Roman Gabria). FN 1922 doesn't fit for that time; in reality Bogrov used an FN Model 1900 for the assassination of Pyotr Stolypin in September 1911.

Reck Perfecta

A blank firing Reck Perfecta is seen in the scene when Ivan Kalyayev (Andrey Arshinnikov) chooses a gun for the political terror. Perfecta is often used in modern Russian films and TV series as a generic pocket pistol.

Reck Perfecta - 8mm P.A.K.

Savinkov takes the pistol from Kalyayev, disdainfully calling it "lady's pistol".

Percussion Cap Pistol

A Percussion Cap Pistol is also seen on the wall of Trepov's house. It seems to be a Russian M1848 model.

A pistol at the left seems to be a Russian M1848. It's hard to identify if the pistol at the right is also a percussion cap gun (likely) or a flintlock one.


Mosin Nagant M1891 Infantry

Russian soldiers are mostly armed with Mosin Nagant M1891 rifles of Infantry model.

Mosin Nagant M1891/30

Mosin Nagant M1938 Carbine

Mosin Nagant M1938 Carbines, not fitting for that time, are used by Cossacks and gendarmes. With a certain convention they can depict M1907 Carbines.

In the scene of Stolypin's arrival in Kiev in 1911, a large railway gun is seen at the background. This is a 305mm (12-inch) TM-3-12, built in late 1930s and currently on display in Russian Railway Museum in Sankt-Peterburg. In 1910s Russian military didn't possess any similar weapons. The reason of the screen appearance of this railway gun is completely incomprehensible.

Two 12-inch shells, a long-range high explosive shell M1928 and a training shell M1911.
