Unidentified Revolver 1
In the opening and the final scenes, Commissioner Mattei (Bourvil) carries a snub nose revolver. It looks similar to a Smith & Wesson Model 36 but the shape of the front sight and of the grip differs.
Unidentified Revolver 2
A Colt-style revolver is used in Jansen's apartments as a decoration (according to the plate, it's an award to Jansen for sharpshooting). It resembles a Colt Official Police but its grip looks different. In the final scene, Jansen is seen with a revolver that is supposed to be the same gun.
Unidentified revolver 3
A security guard in the jewelry store carries a revolver. Judging by its plain grip with lanyard ring and the general shape, the revolver can be identified as a Smith & Wesson Victory Model or a military service version of the Smith & Wesson Military & Police.
Several handguns are seen in Mattei's apartment as a decoration. One of them appears to be a long-barreled revolver while two others are some pocket guns.
During the manhunt for Vogel, MAT-49 SMGs are seen in the hands of several gendarmes.
