Hunter Will Get You (USA release title; the original title is L'Alpagueur which is a French slang word for "bounty hunter") is a 1976 French crime movie directed by Philippe Labro. Jean-Paul Belmondo appears as a bounty hunter who is in pursuit of a ruthless criminal known as L'Epervier ("Sparrowhawk") (Bruno Cremer).

The following weapons are seen in the movie Hunter Will Get You (L'Alpagueur):


Smith & Wesson Model 14

A Smith & Wesson Model 14 revolver is a personal weapon of prison guard Granier (Claude Brosset). L'Alpagueur (Jean-Paul Belmondo) takes the revolver from Granier and uses it himself in several scenes.
