My New Partner (original title Les ripoux, a French criminal slang word for corrupted cops) is a 1984 French crime comedy directed by Claude Zidi and starring Philippe Noiret as an experienced rascal police detective René Boirond and Thierry Lhermitte as his young and idealistic partner François Lesbuche. The film was followed by two sequels, My New Partner II (Ripoux contre ripoux) (1990) and Ripoux 3 (2003).

The following weapons were used in the film My New Partner (Les ripoux):


Manurhin MR-73

François Lesbuche's (Thierry Lhermitte) service handgun is a Manurhin MR-73 revolver with 3" barrel, duty sights and wooden grip. MR-73 revolvers are also seen in hands of other police detectives.
