SPOILERS.jpg WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS!


Revolvers

Manurhin F1

As in Season 1, Capt. Hervé Sebastian (Cédric Chevalme) and Lt. Guy "Guido" Buscema (François Vincentelli) carry Manurhin F1 revolvers.

Note: see additional images on talk page.

Smith & Wesson Model 13

A Smith & Wesson Model 13 (or maybe Model 10HB) with 3" barrel is seen in hands of Frank Riva (Alain Delon). According to the storyline, this revolver is a service sidearm of Hervé Sebastian (who appears on screen only with a Manurhin F1) that his new-made wife Nina Rizzi slipped to Riva. When Riva gives the revolver to Jimmy Esperanza, it switches to Manurhin F1 (see above).

Smith & Wesson Model 13 with 3" barrel - .357 Magnum
For comparison: Smith & Wesson Model 10 with 3" barrel - .38 Special
The grip of the revolver is seen when Frank Riva is arrested by internal security operatives. The grip seems to look more like Model 13.

A similar revolver is seen in Thomas Chauveau's gun safe (at the right). It seems to have a different grip, looking more like S&W Model 10HB.

Smith & Wesson Model 637 Airweight

A Smith & Wesson Model 637 Airweight is seen in gun safe of Riva's old buddy Thomas Chauveau (Jacques Le Carpentier). Riva takes this revolver and uses it in several scenes, including the final confrontation. An S&W Model 637 (most likely same prop reused) is seen in hands of nurse Lola (Sylvie Ferro) who kidnaps Nina Rizzi's baby.

Note: see additional images on talk page.

Smith & Wesson Model 36

Jimmy Esperanza (Eric Defosse) carries a snub nose revolver in leg holster. Only the grip is seen. In another scene a snub nose revolver is seen in Thomas Chauveau's gun safe. Both revolvers are blued, and if this is the same prop reused (very possibly guess), then the revolver appears to be a Smith & Wesson Model 36.

Various revolvers

Police officers carry revolvers in holsters.

Pistols

M1911A1

Unlike the Season 1, Frank Riva (Alain Delon) carries an M1911A1 pistol. The thick plain wooden grips of this pistol resemble blank firing Kimar 911 (though Kimar pistol is based on original M1911).

Pre-War Colt M1911A1 - Commercial Model known as the "Colt Government Model" - .45 ACP. This has a deep Colt factory blued finish, common for commercial variants before and after the war.
For comparison: Kimar 911 - 9mm PAK. The screen gun has similar plain wooden grips.

Custom M1911A1

Xavier Unger (Jacques Perrin), now the director-general of the General Directorate of the National Police, uses a custom M1911A1 with blued slide and stainless steel frame. The pistol also has an angular trigger guard, modern raised beavertail and adjustable rear sight.

For comparison: Para Ordnance P14 Limited, early model with vertical slide serrations - .45 ACP. Some features of this pistol match the screen gun.

Beretta 92FS

Minda Fierro alias Nelson (Carmela Ramos), the leader of "Los Lobos", uses a suppressed Beretta 92FS when she kills corrupt police Commissioner Stan Duval (Cris Campion). Beretta 92FS pistols are also used by Jimmy Esperanza (Eric Defosse), an internal security operative, Xavier Unger's agents and special police unit operatives.

Note: see additional images on talk page.

Mockup Pistols

Mockup pistols are seen in several scenes instead of real guns.

Ruiz (Jean-Olivier Remer), one of "Los Lobos", draws a Beretta 92-style pistol in attempt to kill Stan Duval. The hammer seems to be a single detail with the frame, and the pistol in in a whole produces impression of a plastic toy.

Other Weapons

RPG-7 Rocket Launcher (mockup)

Guns in TV News

In the scene in Colombia Alfredo Herrera and Maxime Loggia watch TV news that show a pile of guns, captured from drug mafia. These guns seem to be the props, used in the series, rather than a real newsreel.

Two pump action shotguns with wooden furniture (left and right), a Beretta M12 submachine gun without magazine and with unfolded stock (top), an M1911A1, a Smith & Wesson 6906 and unidentified pistol (stainless or nickel plated, so may be one of M1911-style pistols from Season 1) (top row), a nickel plated Smith & Wesson Model 36 and (supposedly) a SIG-Sauer P230 (middle row), a Smith & Wesson Model 36 and a Ruger SP101 or a stainless/nickel Manurhin F1 (bottom row).
Another view of same guns. One more stainless or nickel plated revolver (most likely a Ruger SP101 or a stainless/nickel Manurhin F1 - depending on what's left of it) is seen at bottom right.
