Zavatter (the character is played by Claude Brosset in Ep. 1-2 and by Michel Fortin in Ep. 3-4), Burma's assistant, carries a Smith & Wesson Model 586 with 4" barrel. Note: this revolver can be a Manurhin MR-73 with 4" barrel and adjustable sights but the shape of the frame matches S&W Model 586 better than MR-73.

Colt Python

In the opening scene in "Corrida aux Champs-Élysées" (S1E3) during the shooting of a film an actor in the role of a murderer holds a Colt Python. While blank-firing Bruni Magnum is more often seen in Nestor Burma series, this particular revolver has a checkered grip with a logo, thus the revolver appears to be a Python.
