The Cop (original title Un condé; UK release title Blood on My Hands) is a 1970 French crime drama directed by Yves Boisset. A bar owner Robert Dassa is killed by the henchmen of crime boss Tavernier. Dassa's old friends, criminals Dan Rover and Viletti avenge him, but when they in turn kill Tavernier, police inspector Barnero is also slain. Barnero's friend inspector Favenin is glad that Tavernier is dead but the death of Barnero makes Favenin mad, and now he takes the justice in his hands.


The following weapons were used in the film The Cop (Un condé):


Astra Cadix

An Astra Cadix is one of two revolvers used by Dan Rover (Gianni Garko) during the assassination of Tavernier. The revolver has a six round cylinder indicating that it is chambered in .32 S&W.

Smith & Wesson Model 36

Another Rover's revolver is a Smith & Wesson Model 36. Viletti (Michel Constantin) also carries Model 36. In the scene when Inspector Favenin (Michel Bouquet) appears in Viletti's apartments, he finds and uses Viletti's revolver.

Smith & Wesson Model 36 - .38 Special - 5 shot. First pattern with flat latch cylinder release.
Viletti cocks his revolver.

Favenin fires Viletti's revolver. He fires a five-shot revolver six times in a row but the revolver is seen only during first four shots so an extra shot can be a mere sound effect.

Unidentified Colt revolver

In one scene the chief of local police (Adolfo Celi) is seen in the shooting range with a revolver that appears to be some Colt model, most likely a Colt Official Police or a Colt Police Positive.

Unidentified revolvers

When Dan Rover is arrested, police detectives carry unidentified revolvers.

A detective at the right holds a snub nose revolver (maybe an S&W Model 36).
A detective at the left holds a revolver with a barrel of about 3" length and short ejector rod.

A large-frame revolver is seen in the police shooting range.

A revolver is seen on the desk at the front.


Walther PP

A Walther PP (most likely a Manurhin-manufactured pistol) is Inspector Favenin's (Michel Bouquet) personal firearm.

Post war Walther PP Pistol - .32 ACP. Though most of the pistols built immediately after the war were made by Manurhin of France (under license), the guns are marked "Made in West Germany".
Favenin aims his pistol at Lupo.
The grip of the pistol is seen when Favenin carries it in shoulder holster.

Luger P08

A Luger P08 is a personal firearm of Georges "Nice Smile" Duval (Henri Garcin), Tavernier's henchman. Later Duval's pistol is seen in hands of Inspector Favenin (Michel Bouquet) and Lupo (Théo Sarapo).

Sten Mk V

A photo of Hélène Dassa (Françoise Fabian) toghether with Viletti (Michel Constantin) shows her holding a submachine gun with side-mounted magazine and a foregrip. It looks most likely a Sten Mk V though the barrel looks slightly different.

Thompson SMG

Some version of Thompson Submachine Gun is seen on the police shooting range. It has a foregrip and a drum magazine. Thompson M1928 seems to be a reasonable guess.
