The ComDads (original title Les compères) is a 1983 French comedy directed by Francis Veber and starring Pierre Richard and Gérard Depardieu. A teenage boy, Tristan Martin, runs away from his family. Seeing as his father Paul (Michel Aumont) isn't putting enough effort in finding him, his mother Christine (Anne Duperey) convinces two old flames of hers, a masculine journalist Jean Lucas (Depardieu) and a depressed teacher François Pignon (Richard), that each is the father of her son and asks to find the boy. While searching, both men meet up and have to team, not knowing who is the real father. This film is second in a series of Veber's movies with comedy duo Richard-Depardieu, started by La chèvre (1981) and followed by Les Fugitifs (1986).
The following weapons were used in the film The ComDads (Les compères):
Ralph (Jean-Jacques Scheffer) and Milan (Philippe Khorsand), two criminals hunting for Lucas, carry Smith & Wesson style revolvers with 3" barrels.

Inspector Verdier (Jacques Frantz) carries a holstered revolver that seems to be the same gun.
