Paris Police 1900 is a 2021 French historical crime TV series. The plot is set in Paris in 1899-1900. After the death of President Felix Faure in the arms of his mistress, the Third Republic is on the verge of crisis. Louis Lépine, a retired Prefect of Police, is recalled to service and begins the modernisation of the Paris police. Meanwhile, an ambitious detective Antoine Jouin investigates the murder of an unknown young woman. The investigation uncovers the planned coup against the Republic. Many real characters are involved in the storyline, such as Prefect Lépine, Jeanne Chauvin who was the second woman in France to obtain a law degree, Faure's mistress Meg Steinheil, ultra right activist Jules Guérin, and Alphonse Bertillon, the famous biometrics researcher who applied the technique of anthropometry to law enforcement.

The following weapons were used in the television series Paris Police 1900:


St. Etienne Mle 1892

Alphonse Chagnolle (Renaud Rutten) carries a St. Etienne Mle 1892 revolver when he is disarmed by Inspector Antoine Jouin (Jérémie Laheurte). An Mle 1892 revolver is a service sidearm of Colonel Gabriel Sabran de Ponteves (Christophe Montenez). Mle 1892 revolvers are also seen among the guns, distributed to the members of the Ligue Antisemitique.

St. Etienne Mle 1892 Snub Nose

What appears to be a snub nose version of St. Etienne Mle 1892 revolver with nickel finish is used by hitman Gustave Pertaud (Noam Morgensztern). The barrel of the revolver is cut down for about a half of its original length; the grip also seems to be shortened.

Chamelot-Delvigne Model 1873

In the scene in the Count Sabran's house, Police Inspector Guichard (Renaud Hezeques) holds a revolver that is supposed to be a Chamelot-Delvigne Model 1873 or maybe its close relative, Swiss Ordonnanzrevolver 1872 that is very similar in design but is slightly larger and with difference in details.

Chamelot-Delvigne Mle. 1873 (factory bare finish) - 11x17.8mmR
For comparison: Swiss Ordonnanzrevolver 1872 - 10.4mm Swiss rimfire

The revolver is seen at the background right. The shape of the front part of the frame tends to look more like Swiss Model 1872 but it's not for sure.

Smith & Wesson "Wells Fargo" Schofield

Jules Guérin (Hubert Delattre), the leader of the Ligue Antisemitique, holds a Smith & Wesson "Wells Fargo" Schofield revolver that he uses in an attempt to threaten Prefect of Police Louis Lépine.

Velo-Dog Revolver

Madame Lépine (Valérie Dashwood) covertly takes a Velo-Dog Revolver from Bertillon's laboratory and uses it to shoot at Commissaire Puybaraud. This is a five-shot, large caliber version of Velo-Dog with Belgian Bulldog style cylinder and faceted barrel. Such revolvers are on the border between Bulldog and Velo-Dog and can be classified in different ways.

A Belgian or French Velo-Dog Revolver - .380. This sample is very similar to the screen gun.

Enfield No. 2 Mk. I*

What appears to be an anachronistic Enfield No. 2 Mk. I* revolver with bobbed hammer is one of the revolvers, distributed to the members of the Ligue Antisemitique.

Enfield No. 2 Mk. I* - .38 S&W

Webley RIC

One more of the revolvers, distributed to the members of the Ligue Antisemitique, is supposed to be a Webley RIC, possibly a No.1 New Model.

Webley RIC No.1 New Model with 4.5" barrel - .476 Webley

This revolver is the last in the crate.

Nagant M1895

One more of the revolvers, distributed to the members of the Ligue Antisemitique, is a Nagant model, most likely a Nagant M1895, possibly the original Belgian model.

Russian Nagant M1895 - 7.62x38R Nagant. The angular front sight was used from 1930s but the original Belgian Nagant also had the angular front sight, although of slightly different shape.
A Nagant revolver (4) is seen in the crate of the handguns.
The Nagant is taken from the crate.

Unidentified revolvers

A nondescript revolver is seen on the shelf among the evidences in the Bertillon's laboratory.
A member of the Ligue Antisemitique (at the right) carries a revolver tucked into his belt. Only the grip is seen. Judging by the shape, color and what is supposed to be a round logo, the revolver may be some Smith & Wesson model but more likely of later period. The revolver, seen on the same screenshot at the far left, is an Mle 1892.


Mauser C96

One of the members of the Ligue Antisemitique carries a Mauser C96 pistol. The exact model of the C96 is difficult to determine, but the shape of the base of the barrel allows to guess that this is a Cone Hammer, just right for the time of action.

For reference: Ottoman contract Mauser C96 Cone Hammer

Another view of the same scene.
The only decent view of the Mauser is on a promotional image. The shape of the base of the barrel allows to guess that this is a Cone Hammer model.

Percussion Pocket Pistol

Jeannen Chauvin (Eugénie Derouand), one of the first female lawyers in France, carries a Percussion Pocket Pistol in several scenes.

The pistol rests on a stack of papers.

Jules Guérin's Gun Collection

A number of handguns can be seen in Jules Guérin's office. They are seen very unclear and mostly can be identified only marginally.

From top to bottom: 1 - a revolver that bears resemblance with some of Adams models; 2 - supposedly a Chamelot-Delvigne Model 1873; 3 - a revolver that is supposed to be some cap and ball Colt model, like 1851 Navy or 1860 Army; 4 - a military style percussion cap pistol, possibly a Chatellerault Cavalry Model 1822 or Chatellerault Navy Model 1837; 5 - a dueling style percussion cap pistol.

Five handguns are seen in the dark corner. One long gun is positioned to the left of the handguns but it's barely noticeable.
The two top revolvers are seen slightly better.
The two percussion cap pistols at the bottom are seen slightly better.

In another scene the guns in Guérin's office look somewhat different, probably due to a continuity error. The two revolvers on top (1 and 2) now look more like long cap and ball Colt-style guns, and two percussion cap pistols at the bottom (4 and 5) are of the same length, unlike what was seen earlier. The long gun to the left (6) that now is seen slightly better resembles a kind of Blunderbuss.



Winchester Model 1892 Carbine

Several members of the Ligue Antisemitique are armed with Winchester Model 1892 carbines. A Winchester 1892 is also seen in the Bertillon's laboratory.

Winchester 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine - .32WCF/.38-40/.44-40/.25-20.

Lebel Mle 1886

French soldiers are armed with Lebel Mle 1886 rifles. Most likely the screen guns are Mle 1886 M93.

Double Barreled Shotgun

Louis Lépine (Marc Barbé) and several other men carry Double Barreled Shotguns during several hunts. Both shotguns with exposed hammers and hammerless ones are seen. Shotguns are also used by Count Sabran's men, guarding his estate.

For reference: Charles Parker 1878 Side by Side Shotgun with exposed hammers - 12 gauge
For reference: Samuel Buckley & Company/Anson & Deeley Hammerless Side by Side Shotgun - 12 gauge

Sawed-off Double Barreled Shotgun

Police Inspector Joseph Fiersi (Thibaut Evrard) holds a hammerless Sawed-Off Double Barrel Shotgun in the scene in the Count Sabran's house.

For reference: The screen used Zabala short barreled shotgun used by Denzel Washington in the film Man on Fire. Fiersi's shotgun looks similar to this sample.
