If you've spent the past 14 years wondering about the guns used by Nicolas Cage's character Castor Troy in the 1997 smash hit Face/Off, today just became the most important day of your life. Because I bet you never thought to look it up on the Internet Movie Firearms Database. Here, let me IMFDB that for you:
Castor Troy's (Nicolas Cage) weapons of choice are two gold titanium nitride plated Springfield Armory M1911-A1 V-10s fitted with custom gold inlaid grips, that he keeps in two small-of-the-back holsters. Among the obvious modifications to the guns include skeletonized hammers, beavertail grip safeties, ambidextrous slide stop safeties, target sites, moderately bevelled magazine wells, and V-10 ported slides/barrels.
Feel free to spend the rest of the day looking up any and every other gun you've ever seen on the silver screen. You're welcome. IMFDB[Thanks Siege]
