In several scenes a Mecacci's henchman fires a snub nose revolver that appears to be a Colt Python.

A henchman fires through the window of the car. A vent rib can be seen over the barrel of the revolver, thus allowing to identify it as Python.
Smith & Wesson revolver
Police inspector Simon (Roger Dumas) carries a revolver in holster. It has Smith and Wesson Magna grips so it could be a Smith & Wesson Model 10 or Model 15, likely a snub nose.
A Beretta M1951 is used by one of Mecacci's hitmen (Didier Sauvegrain).

Police inspector Rojinski (Pierre Vernier) carries a pistol in holster. It is seen only partially but the shape of the grip allows to guess that it's a Browning Hi-Power. A Hi-Power is also seen in Mecacci's (Henry Silva) safe in the final scene.

Sawed-off Winchester Model 1200 Slug Gun
A guard in a den (Jean-Roger Milo) is armed with a Winchester Model 1200 pump action shotgun with sawn-off stock and barrel. This particular shotgun, oddly enough, unusually is a cut-down version of Slug Gun (instead of more logical smoothbore barrel). It is also an earlier model with a long forend.

SIG Manurhin SG 540
In the final scene a hitman uses an assault rifle that appears to be some version of SIG Manurhin SG 540. It seems to have a shorter barrel than SG 540 but a fixed stock, unlike carbine SIG SG 543.
