Actually the early models look very much alike but you're right, there is NO interchangeablility of parts between them. And the mags don't fit. I wouldn't have tubs of separate Taurus and Beretta High cap mags if they weren't different! h ahahahahaha But looking very similar isn't enough to declare the early Taurii (plural? hahaha) exact clones of the berettas. I wouldn't put any of the STAR pistols (Modelo A, B, Super) under the 1911 category, even though they are often used as 1911s.

BTW, I love the STAR pistols. They fire really fast, much faster than an 1911 and they chamber in 9mm so there one less caliber I have to bring to set and if it's not a historical film, the Stars are just as good as any 1911 clone to be seen on film.

I personally think they're ugly as sin, but the one they used in Phantasm was formed so perfectly and plated so shiny I couldn't stop drooling. He shouldn't have called it a "Colt Army Issue" though.

Not to mention easier for Hollywood's limp-wristers to fire...(I always figured that was the reason some films use the Star?)

Phantasm? Did you mean Phantasm 2? It's been a while but I don't remember a 1911 in the first Phantasm movie....

Yeah, when Jody goes to check out Morningside, he loads a silver Star Model B, saying

"I'm just gonna go up there and take
a look around. Nobody's gonna see me.

But, heck, a Colt army issue
will put a man down and keep him there."


and takes it with him. When the Jawa thing jumps him, he draws it, and fires the gun backwards into it. When he draws it, though, there's a brief zoom in on the gun, where you see the external extractor, making it a Star.

I've never seen Phantasm 2 though.

Yeah, I'm talking about the M1911 page. I cleaned it up by putting the image above the title to even them out. The image is slightly above the title but every image lines up with its information now.
