M1911A1

The car’s name is Rod Torque Redline, and as you can see in the video he has at least 1 weapon in his rim:

Also notice the sweet M1911A1 license plate!

The movie comes out June 24th, take your kids and educate them about John Moses Browning.

Developed by Colt back in the 1930s. The rate of fire is listed at 700 rounds per minute (For comparison, the Glock 18 ROF is 1200 rounds per minute):

The curved magazine is pretty unique looking on a handgun!

Notorious gangster John Dillinger (who the recent movie Public Enemies is based on) and his gang had a similar weapon in their arsenal, only theirs was converted to .38 super.

Notice the fully auto M1911A1 has the same foregrip as Dillinger’s Thompson Sub machine gun does in the movie poster.  This is obviously for better controll with such a high rate of fire.

There are a number of pictures of the Dillinger M1911A1 floating around, but this one is the best quality I have saved (Click picture to enlarge):

Pretty classy looking if you ask me!

The gun, a M1911A1, is introduced at around 11 minutes into the movie.

This movie is such a classic, definitely on my list of favorites.  Reminds me of a simpler time, before the internet and mainstream proliferation of video games… when kids were kids, and did stupid things but still managed to survive.

Chris: You wanna be the Lone Ranger, or the Cisco Kid?
Gordie: Walkin’, talkin’ Jesus, where did you get this?
Chris: Hawked it off my old man’s bureau. It’s a forty-five.
Gordie: [incredulously] I can see that…[aims gun at trash can and mimics the sound of a gun being fired] You got shells for it?
Chris: Yeah, I took all that was left in the box. My dad’ll think he used them himself shooting at beer cans while he was drunk.
Gordie: Is it loaded?
Chris: Hell no! What do you think I am?
[Gordie squeezes the trigger and the gun discharges]
Chris and Gordie: [in unison] Jesus!!!
[the two run]
Chris: Gordie did it! Gordie Lachance is shooting up Castle Rock!!
Gordie: Shut up!
