Wild Target (original title Cible émouvante) is a 1993 French crime comedy directed by Pierre Salvadori. Victor Meynard (Jean Rochefort), a professional killer, gets a contract on young woman Renée Dandrieux (Marie Trintignant) who cheated a Corsican mobster, selling him a fake Rembrandt painting. But events turns in a very strange way...

In 2009 the film was remade in UK.

The following weapons were used in the film Wild Target (Cible émouvante):


Jericho 941 R

Victor Meynard (Jean Rochefort) owns two Jericho 941 R pistols. He uses one of these pistols with sound suppressor; the other one he gives to his apprentice Antoine (Guillaume Depardieu). Victor's pistol is twice taken from him, once by Manu (Serge Riaboukine) in the scene in parking, and another time by Hector Dremyan (Charlie Nelson) in the final scene.
