The Gang (Le Gang) is a 1977 French crime movie directed by Jacques Deray and starring Alain Delon as the criminal Robert called "Le dingue" ("The crazy"). The movie is based on the memoirs of former police inspector Roger Borniche (another movie, based on Borniche's memoirs, is Flic Story, where Delon appeared as Borniche himself).

The following weapons are seen in the movie The Gang:


Smith & Wesson Military & Police

Manu (Adalberto Maria Merli) is armed with Smith & Wesson Military & Police revolver in several scenes.

Robert's (Alain Delon) favored weapon is M1911A1. He uses this pistol in most scenes.

Luger P08

Lucien's (Maurice Barrier) favored weapon is Luger P08 pistol.

MAB Model D

A gendarme on the railway station is seen with pistol that most likely is MAB Model D. Most of police inspectors in the scene of the police raid are also armed with MAB pistols.

In the scene on the railway station Jo (Xavier Depraz), disguised as gendarme, is armed with a pistol that is seen very briefly and is hard to be identified. It can be MAB Model D too but not for sure.
