Nuclear bomb

It is not a firearm per se, but is included here for completeness. Professor (Nikolai Grinko) carries a 20kt nuclear bomb to destroy an artifact in the "The Zone"

(resolved) Writer's pistol: doesn't seem to be a standard 1911 or TT-33

I wonder what has been used as Writer's pistol in the movie. The shape is similar to Colt 1911 and Tokarev T-33, but the following features do not match:

  • a takedown lever just above the front of the trigger guard, on the left side. It is not featured on 1911, TT-33 or other pistols that I can think of (or see photos of). This might have been added to a real pistol for movie purposes though. On watching film a few more times this is just a splash of water in that place.
  • spur at the bottom plate of the mag. Neither 1911 or TT-33 feature such magazine plates as far as I could find.
  • grip spur under hammer. TT-33 does not have such a feature, 1911 does. Even if TT-33 slide has somehow been pushed to the front, shape of "spur" is wrong for TT-33.
  • there is no mag release button behind trigger. 1911 and TT-33 do have one.
  • hammer is seen at the back of the slide, similar to 1911. Tokarev had a hammer seen on top of the slide, behind rear sight.
  • serrations at the back of the slide look like 1911 or post-war TT-33. Earlier TT-33 had a wider spacing of the serrations.

It looks to me like the slide is forward, like it's about to be disassembled. The take down lever in front of the slide lock is what I don't get. There are a few other guns that have the 1911, TT-33 style. Like below but it's not it either.--Predator20 23:45, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
Pistolet WZ. 35 VIS - 9x19mm
It's not a Tokarev at all, it's a Hungarian Femaru 37M. Standard issue for the Hungarian army in WW2, it's a relatively heavy unlocked-breech blowback 9mm Short, actually has nothing in common with the Tokarev. Nyles
Great find! :-) Surprisingly I did not have this pistol in any of my (few I admit) books.--Tiksom 07:13, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Great WORK! so far Tiksom

Now this is the type of Page I appreciate. For one, I am compelled to want to see this movie! Beautiful work so far! MoviePropMaster2008 00:17, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! Now you can see what the page was going to be originally :-)--Tiksom 07:13, 29 May 2010 (UTC)


In one scene, there are some abandoned (WWII?) tanks standing around. As far as I remember, there appears a MG34 (though only the barrel is visible) in one scene. Can someone confirm that? -- 14:30, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

There is a such scene with several tanks around 50m00s mark. Except for tank barrels I could not make out any further details due to lack of resolution :-(--Tiksom 11:36, 8 June 2010 (UTC)


A 20 kiloton atomic hand grenade. Really? --unknown

Well in the 1950s the US had 15 kt atomic artillery grenades. In the 1970s the russian should have had something like 20 kt atomic grenades in that size. I also remember to have seen a similar type of atomic grenade as in the movie. Don't know if it's a 20kt or even if it's an accurate mock-up. --unpaid lamer

"Unidentified Rifle"

I was watching the movie on YouTube today (haven't finished it though), and noticed that the unidentified gun the guards use is almost definitely not a rifle. It fires in full auto and has a dangling ammo belt on the side. Maybe they used the MG34 or another machine gun for that scene. --Dan San (talk) 23:42, 7 August 2020 (EDT)
