Star's Model B in the movies

1,115

Description


Until less than 20 years ago, .45 ACP blanks couldn't be made to reliably cycle Colt 1911 actions. So, movie armorers often substituted the similar looking Star Model “B”, because 9mm blanks would run just fine.

The Star filled in for the 1911 in over 20 movies, including some big ones like “The Wild Bunch”, “The Getaway”, “The Untouchables and “Pulp Fiction”.

In the video we'll discuss Movies that featured the Star Model B.

Originally this was a very different video. It was interspersed with actual movie clips of the Star in action from "Magnum PI", “The Wild Bunch”, “The Getaway”, “The Untouchables and “Pulp Fiction”.

Within minutes Warner Brothers shut the video down, even though I hadn't monetized it. So, I re-compiled the video with just my shooting scenes...no classic movie clips...Lesson learned.
