Jesse Stone's 1911. Is it a Smith?

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.

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.

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

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.
