Fluting looks too large for an NAA
- They ought to have picked a Colt 1903 instead of a M1911-S&Wshoooter
- Yeah, I never thought we would ever have to deal with a movie where the M1911 was an anachronism. -Gunman69 17:04, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
what gun they should have put in to be accurate
- Why would they use a Winchester 1897, there were no shotguns in the film?
- Sorry about that. Also, I believe that the M1911 is in the film to show off Cal's wealth and it could be possible that Cal purchased an M1911 prototype at a high price and put a nickel finish on it. - Kenny99 22:54, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
They could have used one of the early Colt pistols that were the precursors to the 1911, like the Colt Model 1900 or 1902.
- You may be right, but the hammer spur and the slide gives away what it is.
How about just any gun made before 1911? Excalibur01 15:16, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
- Good idea. They should of not picked the M1911 even though one year after the production of the pistol doesn't make a difference. Of course, they should pick any gun made before 1911, such as flintlock pistols collected from the early 1800s and revolvers and such. - Kenny99 00:43, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
About the hammer. It could have been a regular M1911 hammer and (please forgive me for I'm about to say) they could have taken a grinded it down with a belt-sander. - Kilgore 03:52, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
The 1911 wasn't available for civilian sale until August of 1912, and even then it was only a run of 100 only available to select members of the NRA (sales to the general public began the following year). Also, the ejection port looks to be much lower than was standard then. It also looks like it has a curved A1 mainspring housing and cutouts beside the trigger. A Colt 1902 or a 1903/1908 Pocket Hammerless would have been more appropriate. --Maxman (talk) 22:17, 6 December 2017 (EST)
- The film script describes it as ".45 automatic Colt with pearl grip". Colt Model 1905, apparently would have been more accurate, based on such a description. --Slon95 (talk) 11:54, 12 November 2018 (EST)
I googled the Remington mini-revolver but was not able to find what caliber it was made in. I would assume .22 short/long/long rifle but am not sure.
The 1911's fate?
Perhaps not wholly useful for the article, other than trivia, but does anyone know where the gun is now? The article claims it was rented from a Gun Rental place, but from a movie like this I wonder if it happened to fall into the hands of any private collectors or not (Or a Planet Hollywood restaurant :P) --Clonehunter (talk) 15:55, 28 May 2014 (EDT)
