The following weapons were seen in the movie Papillon:

Contents


Fusil Berthier Modèle 1907-15 Rifle

Berthier Model 1907-15 rifles are used by French Soldiers and Penal Colony guards as well as Papillon (Steve McQueen), Dega (Dustin Hoffman) and Maturette (Robert Deman). During the First World War Berthier rifles were chosen to colonial troops, instead of the Lebel 1886 (rifles erroneously credited before on this page), so the film is historically correct as it is set in 1930.
