Page dedicated to the memory of River Phoenix.
Chris Chambers (River Phoenix) steals a Colt M1911A1 which he calls simply a ".45," and lets all the boys use it at some point in the film. According to the novella "The Body," he had 9 bullets in total stolen in the box of shells. Gordie Lachance (Wil Wheaton) is most notably seen using it, first when Chris gives it to him, claiming it is unloaded. The second usage is when the pistol is fired a shot in the air and is pointed at Ace Merril (Kiefer Sutherland) to keep him from stabbing Chris with his Stiletto knife. When not being fired, it appears to be replaced with a replica model, which is noted by an external extractor. (but it is clearly a 1911 replica in .45 and not a 9mm Star B.)
