Stirlitz's weapon in the film "Seventeen Moments of Spring"

29

Modern tapes about scouts are often replete with scenes of martial arts and the use of various types of weapons. At the same time, the directors themselves admit that this is done for the so-called "action", to which the modern viewer is accustomed.

However, in films about real illegal scouts, the use of weapons, if shown, was extremely rare. In this regard, the question arises, in what cases was it and was it at all in Soviet cinema?



There have been cases. And one of them is the use of military weapons by the legendary hero of the no less legendary actor Vyacheslav Tikhonov - Stirlitz, in a film that today is rightfully attributed to the golden fund of Russian cinematography. In the famous episode, Stirlitz fires a shot at Klaus, whose role in "Seventeen Moments of Spring" is played by Lev Durov.

What gun was used in the filming of the film?

On the Truth of Life channel, its author carefully analyzes the episode, coming to the conclusion that Stirlitz, when shooting at Klaus, used the FN Model 1910 Browning pistol. This is one of the most “long-lived” pistols of the 1910th century. It began to be produced in 7,65, and this process was completed only in the first third of the eighties. In the Third Reich, these pistols were used not only for police, but also for army purposes. Moreover, in two versions of the caliber - 9 and XNUMX mm.

Therefore, the “Browning” of 1910 development could well have ended up in the department in which, according to the plot of the film, Stirlitz-Isaev served.

A detailed analysis of a fragment of the film and the weapons that were shown there, from a video blogger:

      It is now possible, but then military experts were involved. Of course, there were also punctures, but not so obvious

        Well, yes, not so obvious, a car in the mountains of Switzerland with Stirlitz and Shlag on Georgian numbers laughing, Soviet armored vehicles and trucks depicting German equipment, the Is-3 in the film Blockade at the Luga Line, German submachine gunners all in all, these are all not obvious punctures ... bully

    As for me, Walter PP would have looked more logical. But Browning is also quite.

      Logically, Stirlitz has a service Walter PP or even PPK - he is a political intelligence officer of a very high rank, he should not run and brandish a pistol, he needs him rather "just in case"
      But on the other hand, Klaus's body might have been found, so he had to use a reliable pistol, but not a service one, and one with which nothing connected him. One of the most massive pre-war models of civilian weapons is just such a Browning, it was easiest for them to acquire for such a thing, there were a lot of them on hand.

        You have an interesting logic. Klaus shot himself (well, according to the legend of Stirlitz) - he wrote a strange letter (under dictation) he was tired, it's time to rest. And the gun should have been found next to the body.
        And it would be strange that it suddenly turned out to be the service weapon of the Standartenführer.
        Although Stirlitz would have got out here too.

          I didn’t seem to write that he should throw his service weapon there.
          I'm talking about something else.
          Service police officer Walter Stirlitz is a logical weapon for him.
          But for Klaus Stirlitz's weapons, it was easier to choose not a police model, but a civilian one, which was widespread. It's more of a Browning.

    Yes, Seventeen Moments of Spring, an excellent film / series, the acting is on top, the music, but if you look from a logical point of view, then of course a blunder for a blunder in the best traditions of Bond.

    ops.
    phrase
    "in the first third of the eighties" is already breaking the brain.
    The "author", apparently, supplied everyone
    fraction calculators.

    Then the story gets more interesting:
    "Moreover, in two versions of the caliber - 7,65 and 9 mm."
    Oh. Intrigue. Where is it viewed? To the cinema.
    Next: a movie is offered,
    (apparently the letters, the author of the movie ran out).

    I do not watch "movies" unequivocally - nor re-read the phrase three times,
    neither stop nor remove the "accent" of the author of the video.

    - Browning, Klaus

    I'll repeat on the topic:
    1) "Stirlitz was a kind person. When in the Elefant tavern everyone beat
    exposed Paraguayan spy, then everyone beat him with beer mugs
    on the head, and only Stirlitz kicked him in the liver with his boot ... "
    2) "Stirlitz was a kind man. He furtively fed the German
    children. From the "stealth" German children were swollen and dead.
    3) "Stirlitz was sitting in one of the bars in the city of Salisbury. There is someone dressed
    in the Soviet combined arms protective suit mixed something from two test tubes
    into the flask. "Novichok" - Stirlitz thought kindly.

    I do not think that Stirlitz solved the problem with Klaus using his service trunk, which he received in the office.
