Monsieur Gangster (original title Les tontons flingueurs) is a 1963 French crime movie directed by Georges Lautner. Fernand Naudin (Lino Ventura), a former criminal turned an honest businessman, suddenly becomes a boss of a large crime empire after the former boss Louis the Mexican, Fernand's old buddy, dies. Now Fernand has not only to deal with other pretenders but also to become a second father for Louis' daughter Patricia.
The following weapons were used in the film Monsieur Gangster:

FN Model 1910
In one scene Paul Volfoni (Jean Lefebvre) carries a FN Model 1910 until he is disarmed.
One of the pistols used by Jean (Robert Dalban) during the attack on Fernand's estate is a version of Ruby Pistol. A Liberty model, produced by Retolaza Hermanos, corresponds the screen pistol very well.

Jean fires. The pistol is suppressed but suppressor is off-screen.
Another Jean's suppressed pistol in the same scene also looks like some Ruby version. During the shootout Jean switches from one pistol to another or uses both pistols akimbo.
