Drive Angry is a 2011 American "grindhouse"-style action film that stars Nicolas Cage as a man who escapes from Hell in order to save his kidnapped infant granddaughter from a cult leader that also murdered his daughter. The film was released in 3D and co-stars Amber Heard, Billy Burke, William Fichtner, and David Morse.
The following weapons were used in the film Drive Angry:
John Milton (Nicolas Cage) carries a Colt M1911A1 pistol as his sidearm throughout the film. Piper (Amber Heard) also holds this gun on a couple of occasions. Judging from the typical dark grey finish, old safety lever and linear barrel, the gun is a genuine M1911A1 Army model, not a more common Series 70 often used to impersonate the gun. Milton's original handgun was supposedly going to be a .357 Magnum revolver. After the "God Killer" was made, Milton's sidearm was changed to a Colt M1911A1, to be less similar. The gun has two visible jam, exactly when Piper shoots the police officer and then when Milton reloads after shooting a cultist woman driving a pick-up truck.

Colt Gold Cup National Match
Tattooed Guy (Michael Papajohn) holds a stainless Colt Gold Cup National Match during the church scene. The pistol has the unusual combination of a skeleton hammer with standard grip safety, meaning that it is either an Enhanced with the "Duckbill" grip safety replaced, or a standard model with the spurred hammer replaced.

They are safer than real-steel counterparts, and they often substitute them i.e. when blanks are not necessary.
