The Sea Wolf (Morskoy volk) is a Soviet 1991 (filmed 1990) adventure drama mini-series adapted from the 1904 novel "The Sea-Wolf" by Jack London.

The following weapons were used in the film The Sea Wolf (Morskoy volk):


Wolf Larsen (Liubomiras Laucevicius), the captain of seal-hunting schooner Ghost, carries an M1911A1 pistol, anachronistic for 1893 when the plot is set. Later his pistol is taken by Humphrey Van Weyden (Andrey Rudenskiy).

Wolf Larsen carries his Colt in US Army M1916 holster.
The holster is seen when Van Weyden takes the pistol from terminally ill Wolf Larsen.
The pistol is in Van Weyden's hands. The cuts around the trigger guard on the frame are seen, so the pistol is an M1911A1 rather than original M1911 (that would also be anachronistic).

Winchester Model 1895

Seal hunters Latimer (Viktor Gajnov), Kerfoot (Igor Bozhko), Standish (Yury Eller), Holyoak (Viktor Pavlovsky), Britt (Rudolf Mukhin), and Smoke (Evgeniy Khmelev) use Winchester Model 1895 rifles during the seal hunt. Humphrey Van Weyden (Andrey Rudenskiy) steals one of these rifles when he and Maud Brewster flee from the schooner. All these rifles are of the Russian contract pattern.

Britt fires his rifle.
Humphrey Van Weyden carries the rifle on sling. An ammo crate that he holds has a marking "Cal. 7.65" that doesn't match any known chambering of Winchester 1895. What is even more curious, the manufacturer name that is seen on another side of the crate is Colt.

TOZ R-32

When Humphrey Van Weyden prepares to flee from Ghost, he takes a Mosin Nagant/Frolov Shotgun (most likely a TOZ R-32 version) from Larsen's cabin. During the subsequent adventures on the Endeavour Island, the shotgun is commonly seen in hands of Maud Brewster (Elena Finogeeva). While this particular model is out of time and out of place, generally bolt action shotguns existed in late 19th century.

TOZ R-32 shotgun - 32 gauge. Of all versions of "Frolovka", this one is most similar to the screen gun.
