    In one of the primary scenes in the recent Mr. and Mrs. Smith , does the Columbian soldier prompt Mr. Smith (Brad Pitt) with a .45ACP fully suppressed Deslie carbine?

    That's the one - sorry for the incorrect spelling. According to the website, only 167 of this model were actually produced. That would sort of make the movie a little farfetched were this gun to be included as a run-of-the-mill carry weapon by a random Columbian soldier.

    Clones of these are being made by a number of people.
    One of my friends has one.

    As a side note, what is "fully suppressed" ? :)

    Duh, it's twice as much as "half suppressed." :D

    One that is suppressed internally by a shroud enclosing a heavily ported barrel and followed by a baffled tube forward of the muzzle itself. At least that's how I've taken it to be defined.

    Mms?

    To the more knowledgeable; have not seen the film but is Mr. S lefthanded?
    Ad in the newspaper showed him w gun in left hand, and left side ejection port.
    Or did they just flop the negative for the symmetry?

    Very ironic that i was reading about the De lisle earlier today. These things seem really awesome, if only i lived in a country that believed in the RKBA.

    They are one of the few 'fun' firearms we can actually have here in the UK, just too expensive though for my taste.
