Without a doubt.

The Russians bought something like 150,000 S&W revolvers. There are some accounts of their being used to arm partisans during World War II.
As a participant at the end of the Cold War, I can verify that they never threw anything away if it still had some life in it. Honestly, some of the ships and subs that they kept in service would have embarrassed the crew of a tramp steamer. In the pre-CD and DVD era, the amount of documentation that we carried on all of the different Soviet naval vessels could have choked a large herd of horses.
