I have conflicting reports....some sites say it's a Smith, some a Colt, some a Springer.

Anyone know for sure - I'm too damn lazy to pursue any more info!

When in a fight, front sight!!


Only S&W and older Kimbers use that external extractor, too.

I watches all the movies and when there were good shots of his pistol it was a SW1911SC.

what about the no external extractor...does Smith make a 1911 pattern pistol without one???

I know what the sites say (that it IS a Smif) but...

I'm a big fan of the movies as well but I've seen some stills that show the slide without the external extractor...

Maybe in one show/scene it was a S&W and in another a Colt.

I thought that it was a S&W Gunsite 1911 commander.

That is exactly what it is, it is Toms own gun...

All the shows I've seen were fullsize 1911's. Never a Commander...that I saw. I haven't seen every show, but the one's I have seen, when I freeze framed the shot, it was a Smith fullsize.

I'm seeing two or more guns as I watch the Jesse Stone movies. On the range with Suitcase (night scene) he's shooting what appears to be a two-tone 1911. In another scene, (not sure it's the same movie) he lays what appears to be an all blue commander-sized gun on his end table or counter while he opens the Scotch.

BTW: I read that he used a 9mm 1911 in Magnum PI when he fired rounds as it cycled the slide better with the blanks they used and a .45 acp for scenes requiring him to point the gun.

Yeah, I guess I am a gun nerd :supergrin:

ETA: For the sake of research, I'm going to watch all of them on Netflix again tomorrow.

I was laughing at the TV the other day and my wife came in to see what was so funny. I was watching a crap film called Mind-hunters (I think) the gun stuff was so bad it was funny. Like pulling the magazine from a Beretta and slamming it into a Glock. She just rolled her eyes.

Yeah, actually that specific scene where he lays his pistol down on the kitchen counter was what got me thinking about it. I know Selleck is a 1911 fan...so I was wondering what he might have suggested to use.

And the Magnum PI thing...I read that too, and in the opening credits, he slams a mag into the 1911...looks like a 9mm or .38 Super mag.

The 1911 Commander that Tom Selleck uses in the Jesse Stone series is not a S&W. It was specially built for Mr Selleck by the Gunsite gunsmith. It is a steel framed Commander that looks a lot like the S&W Gunsite Commander, including the raven logos on the slide and the Gunsite grips.

And how do I know this?

Well, I was on the phone with Gunsite ordering up my Colt Gunsite Pistol and I asked them! That's the information they gave me. I also asked if they could build me one just like it but they don't build pistols anymore. They said once in awhile Mr Selleck will call in for a new set of grips or send it back for maintenance.

I have noticed that the S&W Gunsite Pistol does look a lot like Selleck's gun. It's my theory (and mine alone!) that the S&W Gunsite took some inspiration from Selleck's gun.

Correct; Tom Selleck is a family member graduate of Orange Gunsite and has a couple of pistols built for him by the smithy back when they did custom builds.

I own five Gunsite custom pistols as well as two Gunsite rifles. The pistol in the Jesse Stone movies is one of Mr Selleck's Gunsite builds.

I'm still breathing......much to the consternation of some.

Good to see you as well. You haven't strayed back to the Great Wall again, have you?

That's one place I think you should avoid.
