Default Sly Stallone's 1911's

I just saw the Expendable's today. That movie is porn with out the naked girls. Stallone's 1911's looked badass. While trying to find out what kind they were, I found on imfdb.com and a forum that they were custom Charles Daly's. I thought to myself, ain't no way in hell they use Daly's for this flick. After some more searching I found the real things.

Beautiful gun!

Kimber & The Expendables
Written by Tactical-Life.com. Author Archive »

Our inside man at Kimber talks to us about the Gold Combat II pistols Stallone wielded in The Expendables.



Kimber’s Product Manager of Pistols Winslow Potter kindly gave us some information about Stallone’s pistols he used The Expendables:

The pistol for “The Expendables” movie was based off of our current Gold Combat II pistol but highly customized.

Instead of being Kimpro finished stainless however, the frame and slide were carbon steel, then mirror polished and hot blued. They wore mirror polished stainless small part accents.

We made a total of 10 identical pistols (other than serial numbers) for the movie and had a total of 3 weeks to make them start to delivery in order to get them to the ISS to do their appropriate modifications. My understanding is some were to be made blank firing, while others were to remain live fire pistols.



The smooth black Micarta magwell grips were a request by Mr. Stallone which we supplied from the factory.

Features included:
-24 LPI front strap checkering with border base.
-A high undercut trigger guard.
-30 LPI under trigger guard checkering.
-24 LPI flat top serrations on the slide
-Scalloped French shoulders blended the slide to frame.
-Special serial numbers



Mirror polished parts:
-hammer
-grip safety mainspring housing/magwell
-mag catch
-trigger
-ambi-safeties
-slide stop
-all pins
-bull barrel
-grip screws
-plunger tube
-front sight

Thanks for posting. I have been saying since the first report came out that those WERE NOT Charles Daly pistols.

I loved the grips. I don't think they are ideal for CC, but they sure are sexy on screen.

They sure are slick looking. I hope Kimber doesn't decide to add a model like that to their lineup, I'll have to find some $$$ somewhere!!!

I prefer blacked out guns to stainless, but I love these two-tone mirror finisheds. I would have never thought of mirrored carbon steel and mirrored stainless.
