Inspector Blunder (original title Inspecteur la Bavure) is a 1980 French comedy movie directed by Claude Zidi. Michel Clément (Coluche) enters the police service because his father was a real legend of police. But unlike his father, Michel isn't a hero and always gets into absurd and ridiculous situations.

The following weapons were used in the film Inspector Blunder (Inspecteur la Bavure):


Smith & Wesson Military & Police

A Smith & Wesson Military & Police revolver is Roger Morzini's (Gérard Depardieu) personal weapon. Note: the revolver seems to be a little small for M&P so maybe it is a Smith & Wesson .32 Hand Ejector Third Model but generally it looks more like an M&P.

Lever Action Rifle

In the flashback scene that shows Jules Clément, Michel's father, a criminal Pierrot the Mad (Henri Lambert) is armed with some lever action rifle. The scene is filmed in B&W and has intentionally poor quality in order to imitate a TV chronicle, so the exact model of the rifle is hard to identify.

Bolt Action Rifle

In the final scene Roger Morzini (Gérard Depardieu) is armed with a Mauser-style sporterized rifle with sniper scope.
