The following weapons were used in Season 5 of the television series Nestor Burma:



Bruni Magnum

In "La Plus Noble Conquête de Nestor" (S5E4) Roger (René Morard) is armed with a Bruni Magnum revolver. Bruni Magnum revolvers are also used by a Russian mobster in "Poupée russe" (S5E5) and by a thug in "Les affaires reprennent" (S5E6). This revolver also is seen in hands of Alexis Gorski (Christophe Odent) in the final scene in "Poupée russe" when his previously used revolver switches to Bruni.

Unidentified revolver 3

In "Poupée russe" (S5E5) Alexis Gorski (Christophe Odent) owns a revolver. It has a Smith & Wesson style outlook, especially similar to Smith & Wesson Model 19 but differs in details, including the shape of the front part of the frame. Maybe it's a blank-firing gun, like many others in Nestor Burma series. When the revolver is seen close in the final scene, it switches to a Bruni Magnum.

Gorski shows his revolver to Olga (Marie Henriau).
Gorski loads his revolver with a single bullet in the final scene. The cartridge resembles .38 Special but seems to lack a belt, unlike most revolver cartridges.

Beretta 92FS

A Beretta 92FS is Inspector Fabre's (Patrick Guillemin) service sidearm in "Burma se brûle les ailes" (S5E2). Nestor Burma uses a Beretta 92FS in "Burma se brûle les ailes" (S5E2), "Drôle d'épreuve pour Nestor Burma" (S5E3) and "La Plus Noble Conquête de Nestor" (S5E4). These pistols can be blank firing versions of Beretta, like most other firearms in Nestor Burma series.
