Thank you , Robert  Smiley

I can shed some light on the question...

St. George is quite correct The Star was the gun used shooting in the wild bunch

The 1911 is difficult read to costly to make in a blank firing prop .....
Many were & are carried , but the ones shooting are various mockup like the this one from Spain...

from India, & Japan,   most use 9MM blanks you can buy 1 @ Sportsman's Warehouse
 
I was at Stembridge Gun rentals in Glendale, cutting a deal on Flintlocks for TexMex Film about 25 years ago

EYE candy everywhere.... I saw a trunk of 1911's rendered un-fireable  (by welding ) these were prop guns just for camera.

I think the 32-20 gained popularity after the frontier days were pretty much over.   Less big game and more pest and varmint issues.

Probably cheaper ammo at that time and easier to shoot.

These are just my thoughts and should be taken with a grain of salt.

Mine has a mushy trigger reset.  I put a colt spring in it that reset the trigger firmly but the bolt would rise at half cock.
Has anyone here dealt with a similar issue?  This revolver has a transfer bar.

My goal this year is to get a CCL.   So this is good information for me.

As best I can tell, it is going to require me to have some wardrobe changes (and loosing a few lbs would help too!) to conceal a handgun of a good defense caliber and capacity.  I do like revolvers, and I have a S&W Model 60 that belongs to my ex-mother-in-law (long story, I've been baby sitting it for over a decade since she moved to  Massachusetts...I should go ahead and buy it from her!).  It is concealable in the front pocket of loose pants, but not very easily accessed.  This has lead me to considering sub-compact autos such as a Sig 938, Ruger LC9 (it think this is the model designation for the 9 mm) or Springfield XDs. 

At the very least, I'll get a NAA mini revolver and put it in my front pocket...better to have and not need, than to not have and need!

The Government's round - the M9 - was a steel-cased one with a cone-shaped nose.

It was single-loaded, and today, single rounds are quite collectable, as are full boxes.

In general, the M1911 is too heavy to reliably cycle blank ammunition - that's why you see the Star being substituted in 'The Wild Bunch' for the M1911 that would have been more realistic - but then, so little was realistic in that movie...

Successful blanks have been made from 9mm rounds in heavily-modified pieces, and sometimes from cut-down .30-06 rounds, as well - but they're hard to make, and more time is spent retrieving the brass (if reusable) than in filming.

The best place to ask this particular question will be a movie propmaster like 'Major 2' - he should have more insight.

Scouts Out!

A lesser-known Robert Duval western is "Lawman" (1971).  Duval plays a supporting role (Burt Lancaster and Robert Ryan star), but he has some significant screen time.  The overall movie is pretty good, although the ending detracts.  Still, if you're as hungry for westerns as I am, it's well worth watching.

Yes I've shot Cartridge, still have a good supply of it. It's an accurate powder, it's is a little dirty but nothing that is unmanageable,( one variation from that is a 50-90 case full of powder and either a paper patch or grease groove bullet, is about like shooting smokeless it's so clean.)
 It was a bad deal when Goex dumped Cartridge and Express at the same time, but when they finally got the recipe down on Eynsford, they really hit a hot lick. Now I understand that OE is coming in 1f , which should be a great thing for the big bores and shotguns.

Phoenix Arizona, Sir.
Dang, I was hoping you were a little closer to Nebraska
