The Price of Treasures (Tsena sokrovishch) is a 1993 (filmed 1992) Russian adventure movie directed by Sergey Tarasov. The story is set in South Africa in 1901, during the Second Boer War. Pavel (Aleksandr Koznov), a Russian Navy officer and a volunteer in Boer army, and local woman Anna (Nadezhda Gorshkova) get a mission to find treasures, hidden long ago by pirates. But a local gang under Harry Cocker (Aleksandr Inshakov) also learn about the treasures and try to get them.

The following weapons were used in the film The Price of Treasures (Tsena sokrovishch):


Webley Revolver

Pavel's (Aleksandr Koznov) handgun is a Webley revolver, possibly a Webley .38 Mk IV (this revolver appeared only in 1930s; his "namesake" .455 Mk IV had a prominent use in the Boer War).

For comparison: Webley Mk IV, 4" barreled "Duty" model - .38 S&W

Nagant M1895

Harry Cocker (Aleksandr Inshakov), his second-in-command Sam (Viktor Grigoryev) and some other bandits carry Nagant M1895 revolvers. It actually non appropriate for Boer War, but used due to the lack of better fitting guns. They maybe standing for the Webley RIC, which had a similar appearance and loading system with a loading gate and retractable ejector rod.

Note: see additional images on talk page.

Mauser C96

Mauser C96 pistols are used by several bandits. In one scene Pavel (Aleksandr Koznov) disarms a bandit and uses his pistol. White C96s were widely used during the Boer War, screen guns are of Wartime Commercial model that appeared only ten years later.

Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III

Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III rifles are widely used by Pavel (Aleksandr Koznov), Anna (Nadezhda Gorshkova), Cocker's bandits and British soldiers. Like most other weapons in the movie, SMLE rifles are out of time, being introduced only in 1907 (during the Boer War British troops were armed with Lee–Metford and Magazine Lee-Enfield (MLE) rifles).

Note: see additional images on talk page.

Machine Guns

Degtyaryov DT (Mocked Up as Lewis)

A Degtyaryov DT, visually modified to resemble Lewis, is used by British cavalrymen and then by Pavel (Aleksandr Koznov). Lewis machine gun appeared only in 1911 and put to service in 1913; and in 1901 no light machine gun was issued to any army. The appropriate to time and place of action would be a Maxim machine gun, from whom one would expect that a single man would only ever to be able to carry the fully assembled weapon for short distances. The screen gun is possibly taken from Mosfilm armoury as it very closely resembles the ones, seen in Mosfilm productions, such as Svoy sredi chuzhikh, chuzhoy sredi svoikh and Kto zaplatit za udachu?.
