- The guns have been customized with at least a custom slide, a double-stack rail frame, and an SV IMM Open pistol extended compensator barrel.

The cost to have one of these pistols replicated is $5200.
- The M1911 was the standard-issue U.S. Armed Forces side arm from 1911 to 1985. The 1911 design has been revived and modernized and is currently being produced by several companies, including Strayer Voigt, Inc., STI International, and Smith & Wesson, as well as countless boutique outfits.

- While working for Building 26 instead of the Company, Noah Bennet uses his Company gun as his sidearm.

It also restores Quentin to life in the present after Noah returns from 2014.
