The M1911A1 is a single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, recoil-operated pistol chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge, which served as a standard-issue sidearm. The gun included larger ejection port, a shortened trigger, a longer grip-safety spur and slightly shaved hammer spur to prevent hammer bite, serrated front sight, a curved mainspring housing, simplified checkered grips (although diamond grips still appeared on some), and relief cuts around the trigger guard on the frame.

Colt Gold Cup National Match Enhanced M1911's are the preferred weapons of the Cousins. Two pistols are used; one is fitted with ivory grips while the other has black grips.
