is a weapon seen in the films.

Sin City

The Springfield Armory M1911A1 is one of the most frequently used handguns in the film (Which are clearly seen on the slides of the guns). At the beginning of the film, The Salesman (Josh Hartnett) uses a G.I. model fitted with a sound-suppressor to kill a woman. Marv (Mickey Rourke) also packs a G.I. model, which he affectionately named "Gladys", after a nun in his Catholic school. Apparently he took the gun from a guy he killed at school based on the line "I stole her off the toughest guy I ever messed with, back in school. He was dead at the time, so he didn't miss her." -(graphic novel Sin City: The Hard Goodbye"). Det. Jack "Jackie Boy" Rafferty (Benicio del Toro) packs a single G.I. model with Pearl grips and Dwight McCarthy (Clive Owen) carries two matching G.I.'s with ivory grips. Along with all of them, several random extras such as thugs and Old Town prostitutes are seen with M1911A1s as well.
