Mesrine: Public Enemy Number 1
Mesrine: Public Enemy Number 1 is Part 2 of a two-part 2008 French-Canadian "Mesrine" film series directed by Jean-François Richet and starring Vincent Cassel as the French gangster Jacques Mesrine. Public Enemy Number 1 (L'ennemi public n° 1 in the original French title) details Mesrine's criminal career after his escape from prison, and his subsequent brutal end. Part One was released as Mesrine: Killer Instinct (L'instinct de mort in the original French title).
The following firearms were used in the film Mesrine: Public Enemy Number 1:
That is definitely a M1911 on the left - SmithandWesson36
As with the last movie, Mesrine's pistol of choice is the M1911. In this scene he fires his pistol right in front of his accomplices ear, temporarily deafening him. The scene is shot with high speed film and allows us to see the pistol up close and in action.
Mesrine later acquires a Browning Hi-Power, that he will use for the Deauville casino heist and to threaten Daniel, a french farmer.
These last two are undoubtly Hi-Powers, man BeardedHoplite 01:06, 4 September 2010 (UTC) Thanks, always get confused between them - though I see the base of the handle is the giveaway.
Just before his condamnation at the Compiègne courthouse, Mesrine asks to go to the toilet. A Luger P08 is hidden in the toilet flush, and Mesrine will use it to escape the courthouse.
MAS / MAC mle. 1950 pistol
MAC Mle 1950 pistols are used by French Gendarmes to shoot at a car with Mesrine inside.
A three inch barreled Manuhrin MR-73 "Defense" with fixed or duty sights is seen used akimbo with an anachronistic Beretta 92FS by a policeman when spying Mesrine before killing him. An original Beretta 92 would have been correct.
When escaping the Prison de la Santé (litteraly Prison of the Good Health), a random convict escapes with them, and takes a MAT-49 submachine gun from prison guard. It is also seen in the hands of a policeman when blocking the road in order to find Mesrine.
During the Deauville casino shootout, Mesrine draws a IMI Uzi submachine gun after running out of ammunition for his pistols.
AKMS's are used in two different scenes, one time by François Besse during the Deauville casino shootout, and one time by Charlie Bauer against Jacques Dallier. This weapon is distinguished by its slanted muzzle brake, front sight, and bulged handguard.
Ruger Mini-14 rifles can be seen on the hands of the policemen when assassinating Mesrine.
During the manhunt on Mesrine, the French Army soldiers are armed with MAS-36 rifles, the FAMAS only being a prototype and still in testing at the time.
Remington Model 700
When waiting the money after kidnapping Lefebvre, Mesrine shoots a unmarked police car, in order to "test their windshield".
Russian F1 hand grenade
Just like the real Mesrine when he was assassinated, he was carrying a bag full of guns and F1 hand grenades on the floor of his BMW.
