Talk:Incident in the Taiga (Sluchay v tayge)

My opinion:

  • Rifle-1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 1-5 - the barrel seems too short and too thick for Frolovka, also a ramrod is seen below the barrel. The magazine too small for Mosin. TOZ-21 looks similar but it appeared only in 1958. No idea what it can be, need more research.
  • Rifle-3-1 - nothing common with NK-8,2. Different shape of the stock, a groove that isn't seen on NK-8,2, no front sight. My guess is Frolovka.
  • Rifle-2-1, 2-2 - Mauser Sporter is a possible guess but this rifle looks so slim... like a .22 caliber (only a guess).
  • Rifle-4-1, 1-7 - not sure about Arisaka. The buttstock is placed on different angle and look more straight rather than semi-grip.

Possibly, some of them are TOZ .22 Caliber Rifles? Pyramid Silent (talk) 18:14, 21 October 2018 (EDT)
I couldn't find a TOZ of appropriate time that match screen gun. Most TOZ small caliber rifles have a bolt handle placed in front of the trigger. I think that you may ignore my grumble on Mauser Sporter. It's just a gut feeling that hardly can be proved. Greg-Z (talk) 01:34, 22 October 2018 (EDT)
Single barrel shotgun is possibly an IZh-5 ([1]) Greg-Z (talk) 15:42, 22 October 2018 (EDT)
A great thanks! I had corrected the page. Pyramid Silent (talk) 12:24, 26 October 2018 (EDT)
The bolt handle on that unknown rifle makes me think of the Berdan II. Could it be a mock up from earlier movies being used here? Black Irish Paddy (talk) 13:31, 26 October 2018 (EDT)
It's possible as there was a lot of versions of converted Berdan. A shotgun, converted from Berdan carbine, could have such relatively short barrel, for example. But this gun seems to have a protruding magazine, and this makes a puzzle. I don't think that anybody would attach a fake magazine to "berdanka". The screen gun also bears some resemblance with French Berthier rifle (Mle 1907-16 has a magazine and straight bolt handle), but it's hardly a correct guess.

Bolt is definitely not Berdan. Something tells me that it could be a military Mannlicher or Ross, converted into a sporter.--Slon95 (talk) 13:47, 29 March 2020 (EDT)
Sorry, I couldn't find any other appearence pf this rifle in this movie. Anywhere, many thanks for the help! Pyramid Silent (talk) 17:04, 29 October 2018 (EDT)
