Original French Poster
A Pain in the Ass (original title L'emmerdeur) is a 2008 French black comedy, Francis Veber's remake of Édouard Molinaro's 1973 movie with the same name. It's worth noting that Veber was the playwriter for the original movie.
The following weapons were used in the film A Pain in the Ass (L'emmerdeur) (2008):
Heckler & Koch USP

In the final scene a special police unit member holds a Glock pistol. It is seen only partially so the exact model is hard to be identified but a Glock 17 seems to be a reasonable guess.
3rd Generation Glock 17 - 9x19mm. Note the finger grooves, thumb reliefs, and accessory rail on the frame, which differentiate it from the older model.

Karabiner 98k/Tromblon VB Smoke Grenade Launcher
In the final scene a policeman uses a grenade launcher to fire smoke grenades. It appears to be the weapon, released specifically for the National Police on base of Karabiner 98k rifle (another version of such weapon was based on M1917 Enfield), shortened at the level of the first sling swivel, fitted with Tromblon VB launcher and using .30-06 propellant cartridge for firing 57mm "cricket" smoke grenades. The conversion was made by MECA de Méaux company.
