The nickel 1911 isn't an A1. It has to long a trigger.
If it is nickle it is not a 1911. Notice the dished out area by the trigger guard an A1 feature. It is obviously a custom gun so why nit pick over a easily replaceable part as a trigger. I have one trigger in each length trying to get the proper feel for me. I don't think mine flops back and forth between A1 and not A1. besides it was built in 2001.
Why does it say that the 1911 is in .38 super on the screenshot? Also it has the flat spring housing instead of the rounded one so it is a custom 1911 and not a straight out 1911 or 1911A1 most likely using a series 80 frame. --cool-breeze 07:46, 2 December 2011 (CST)
Can we be certain that its a .38 Super? It seems like its much more likely its chambered in .45. Although we never get a close up of the muzzle to identify the caliber. Id say its unlikely to be .38.
That was my point, it is likely to be either a .45 or a 9mm. Has there ever been a .38 super 1911 in films before? --cool-breeze 04:34, 3 December 2011 (CST)
I believe its been listed else where here, on the Public Enemies page that there has never been a .38 Super blank fire converted weapon in any movie. So id leave it that the gun shown here is a .45 -MissySummers-
- I'm changing the ID as it is clearly not an original 1911, but a Series 80 as indicated. StanTheMan (talk) 15:24, 10 January 2017 (EST)
Glock 19 with 4" barrel?
The main page says one of the British Agents is armed with a Glock 19 with a 4 inch barrel. As far as i know, there hasnt even been a "shortened barrel" Glock 19. Isnt it more likely its a Glock 26 with a grip extension?
Those guns aren't even G19's. The grips and the barrel are both in the sub-compact range, pointing towards being a G26. The barrel is also definitely shorter than 4". --Ranger12 08:58, 2 December 2011 (CST)
- The near gun is definitely a Glock 19. You can tell by the fact that the "step" in the frame towards the muzzle is forward from the trigger guard, as opposed to on the Glock 26 where it is in line with it (and it also at a shallower angle). Not 100% about the rear gun though as you can't see it as clearly but think it is a 19 as well. I think the positioning of the rear agent's finger is making the barrel appear shorter than it is. If it was a Glock 26 there would be less frame than that in front of the serial number plate. --commando552 10:36, 2 December 2011 (CST)
Well, i was trying to figure out what exactly the caption on the picture was trying to say. It seemed like nonsense to me. Im pretty sure the Glock 19 has a 4 inch barrel to begin with. -MissySummers-
- The original caption was "The agent on the left's barrel is too short to be a Glock 19. It is the Glock 19 with the 4" barrel" which is nonsense. Either the person who wrote it meant the first 19 to be a 17, or the second 19 to be a 26 and also got the barrel length wrong. --commando552 20:01, 2 December 2011 (CST)
- Glock 19s do have 4 inch barrels to begin with, the Glock 17 has a 4.5 inch barrel and the Glock 26 has a 3.46 inch barrel. - Mr. Wolf 20:28, 2 December 2011 (CST)
