The Nada Gang (original title Nada, Spanish for "nothing") is a 1974 French-Italian crime thriller directed by Claude Chabrol. A leftist terrorist group kidnaps the US ambassador in France. Commissaire Goemond investigates the case, using the most cruel and merciless methods.

The following weapons were used in the film The Nada Gang:


Walther PP

The terrorists steal four Walther PP pistols from police station. During the kidnapping and in following scenes they are used by Buenaventura Diaz (Fabio Testi), André Épaulard (Maurice Garrel), D'Arey (Lou Castel) and Meyer (Didier Kaminka).

M1911-style pistol

In the opening scene André Épaulard (Maurice Garrel) thinks about suicide, holding his M1911-style pistol at his head. The pistol appears to be nickel plated, and the cocking serration differs from standard M1911/1911A1 pistols.

Satin Nickel M1911A1 Pistol - .45 ACP. Manufactured on license by Remington Rand - nickel plated later by its owner.

Walther P38

Several police detectives including Commissaire Goemond (Michel Aumont) are seen with Walther P38 pistols.
