Blued Star Model B - 9x19mm pistol from the movie The Untouchables (1987). This one is a screen used and fired handgun in the movie and was used by Kevin Costner on screen.

This Spanish Pistol, known overseas as the Star Modelo B, appears in many Hollywood movies as a substitute for the Govt. Model 1911, since it fired the hotter and more reliable 9mm blanks. Also in the older days of cinema, armorers had trouble getting .45 ACP blanks to cycle in pistols, so 9mm was substituted whenever possible. With newer powders and blank conversion techniques, most problems with the .45 ACP pistols have been solved.
