WARNING! THIS PAGE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Smith & Wesson Model 27
A Smith & Wesson Model 27 with 4" barrel is used by Sylvain Constantini (uncredited) during the ambush at Serge Olivier (Pierre Forget) and Mickey (Gérard Depardieu). Mickey takes Sylvain's revolver and uses it throughout the film.
Smith & Wesson Model 29
In one scene Jean (Christian Marquand) gives a Smith & Wesson Model 29 with 6" barrel to Noel Durieux (Yves Montand) who carries it until the final.
A Colt Python with 4" barrel is used by inspector Sarlat (Gérard Lanvin) after he looses his Browning Hi-Power. Python is also seen in hands of Andre (Jean-Claude Bouillaud) and in Jean's (Christian Marquand) armoury. Though according to the story these are different revolvers, all three seem to be the same movie prop.
Smith & Wesson Model 36
Three snub nose revolvers are seen in Jean's armoury. They seem to be Smith & Wesson Model 36s. Two of them have square butts and lack logo on the grip so they can be not genuine Model 36s but some clone of European origin.
Snub nose revolver
In the final scene one of police inspectors is armed with a snub nose revolver that also can be a Smith & Wesson Model 36.
A Walther PPK is used by Mickey (Gérard Depardieu) during the prison break. A PPK is also seen in Jean's armoury.

A Colt Combat Commander is used by Roland Davout (Etienne Chicot) during the ambush at Serge Olivier (Pierre Forget) and Mickey (Gérard Depardieu). Noel Durieux (Yves Montand) also uses a Colt Combat Commander until it is confiscated by police. A Colt Combat Commander is seen in Jean's (Christian Marquand) armoury. Though according to the story these are different pistols, all three seem to be the same movie prop.
A Browning Hi-Power "Type 73" is carried by inspector Sarlat (Gérard Lanvin) until Mickey (Gérard Depardieu) disarms him. Mickey then uses Hi-Power during the bank robbery.

A pump action shotgun with high-capacity magazine tube and wood furniture is seen in Jean's armoury. It seem to be a Mossberg 500. In the scene of bank robbery a security guard is armed with a pump action shotgun that also has a high-capacity magazine tube so it can be the same movie prop.
