"Punisher" is a skull head picture, usually on 1911 grips.

They're Colts. If you can go back and watch the part where his dad takes him into teh dtudy where they're under the glass, you'll hear him say so.

Colt is still in business. Who would make a Colt that looks more like a Colt than Colt?

(Disclaimer: I haven't seen the movie. Is there something special about the pistols?)

They are 1911's with a compensator. Nothing special about them. You can make any 1911 look like that.

A compensator is just some ports built into the barrel and slide that allow the gases to escape and that takes away some of the muzzle rise you get from firing a round. They are not illegal and you'd have to have them custom installed. Unless you have an extended barrel with ports on it.

The compensator is the silver thing on the end of the barrel. Take that off any you have a normal 1911. I havn't looked at them in a wile and have no clue what the cost any more. Some one here will be able to tell you what you need to know.

It looks like that's a custom build on a '90's Colt 1991A1, with the giant "COLT M1991A1(TM)" billboard ground off, and forward cocking serrations cut into it. Stock rubber Colt grips. Custom stainless beavertail, ambi-safety, mag funnel, trigger, slide release and comp. Novak rear sight, stock front sight.

You could have a gunsmith replicate that easily as the base gun is cheap and plentiful; in fact they look like a standard build for a bowling pin gun to me.

The guns in that photo were definitely NOT made by Colt.

I clearly recognize the unique cocking serrations that are on the frames of these pistols matching what Robar has used on some of their full size custom 1911 guns. They obviously made these two custom 1911 pistols.

I've never seen any Colt manufactured gun with cocking serrations that looked like that.


Here is a link to the Robar website:


http://www.robarguns.com/

Here is a photo of the Robar Thunder Ranch special:




Colt always has their name promiently on the their slides, too, as you can see here:




And when they do have forward serrations on their slides, they are always slanted, like you see here:




It would make sense for a movie company to contact a small high quality custom 1911 manufacturer like Robar to make some unique pistols, rather than to go to Colt.

Robar doesn't own the market on front cocking serrations. There are even folks who will line up the front cocking serrations with the end of the dust cover as pictured in the Punisher's pistols; the Robar pictures is not.

---

The general consensus floating around the net seems to be that they are as likely custom builds on Colts as not, with no determining facts beyond that.

So seeing how they are represented as Colts, look lie Colts, and are likely modified factory Colts... they're Colts. Or at the very least... Colt clones.

Well, the grips are 100% stock rubber'90's vintage Colt 1991A1 grips. See the pony?

Front cocking serrations can be and are often added, and can be cut anyway you please. I will agree that 1991A1's did not come with those from the factory.

The old rollmark 1991A1's are a very common pistol for custom builds. I would tend to think that's what that is.

I could never figure out exactly what he is doing with those pistols. The are 1911s no doubt. But carries them hammer down or something. Seems like every time he needed to fire them it took more than a few steps to actually fire.
