The Fugitives (original title Les fugitifs) is a 1986 French criminal comedy directed by Francis Veber and starring Pierre Richard and Gérard Depardieu. This film continues a series of Veber's movies with comedy duo Richard-Depardieu, which began with The Goat (La chèvre) (1981). Les fugitifs was later remade by Veber in 1989 as the American film Three Fugitives, starring Martin Short and Nick Nolte.


The following weapons were used in the film Fugitives, The:

Smith & Wesson Model 36

During the bank robbery one of the clerks tries to pull out a revolver from the drawer. It is a snub nose 5-shot revolver so Smith & Wesson Model 36 seems a reasonable guess.

SIG Sniper Rifle

In the bank robbery scene several police snipers are armed with rifles that appear to be semi auto guns with 20 or 30 round magazines. The position of charging handle and gas tube above the barrel allow to guess that they are SIG/SIG-Mahurhin rifles.

For comparison: SIG SG 542 - 7.62x51mm NATO
