The Finger Man (original title Le Doulos that literally means a kind of hat but is also a slang term for a police informer) is a 1962 French crime movie directed by Jean-Pierre Melville and starring Jean-Paul Belmondo and Serge Reggiani as two criminals, one of which appears to be an informer but still tries to help his friend.


The following weapons were used in the film The Finger Man (Le Doulos):

Colt Army Special

A Colt Army Special revolver with 3" barrel is used by Maurice Faugel (Serge Reggiani). Later the same revolver is seen in hands of Silien (Jean-Paul Belmondo). In the movie this revolver is correctly called a Colt but its caliber is called .44 which obviously doesn't match the screen gun.

FN Model 1922

An pistol that is supposed to be a FN Model 1922 is carried by Rémy (Philippe Nahon), Maurice's parthner, during the burglary. Maurice uses Rémy's pistol to fire at police. Commissaire Clain (Jean Desailly) also carries an FN Model 1922 (though it can be a MAB Model D, it's hard to say for sure).
