Clearly the most devastating weapon.

Ever conceived of, let alone produced by man. It can even loose thousand lb. bombs on humanity. You have to watch most of the film to catch it, but it is pretty cool anyway. And danged if a pretty serious slip of the censors did not occur towards the end of this episode. Pretty Farked if you know what I mean?

Notice that it jammed a couple of times in that scene, which unfortunately was common when running 1911s with blanks in films. That's why in so many movies you see people using 9mm Star pistols instead when a 1911 is called for.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

I remember watching this show all the time on TV Land when I was a kid in the 1990's, I think I've seen every episode.

The most devastating weapon I've ever seen was an enraged wife with her divorce lawyer's number on speed-dial.

I was thinking two launch keys from a silo or sub.

Ah ah ah! You took the words right out of my mouth!

Anything with a FLGR is fluff, if JMB didn't put it on the 1911 you don't need it.
If you're going to collect, be careful not to get drawn to a piece that is not original, make sure it is a very good example and buy the gun not the story.

What makes you think it's a Singer? I never once saw it in any detail, other than it appears to have a polished blue finish. Hollywood would usually grab any 1911 they could find for a movie, and most GI .45s in early war films were either commercial pistols or (in later films) Colt Series 70s.
