Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are box office gold, and they’re armed with a pair of Cisco 1911 firearms that were created by infamous customizer and reality TV show star Jesse James.
As James recounts on his Jesse James Firearms Unlimited website, it started when he got fed up with Hollywood:
“So almost 5 years ago I decided I was done with California and especially Hollywood, and everything it was about. I came to Texas and reconnected to my passion for building things with my heart and hands. I took my skills and knowledge of metal and started applying it to firearms. It is very special to me that some familiar faces from that past life recognized what I was doing and wanted to be part of it.
He explains:
“I built this custom pair of Cisco 1911’s for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Both are Government size. Her’s is chambered in 9mm and his in .45acp . Both are hand fit from all oversize parts, making them incredibly accurate, well shooting pistols.”"

James had a woodworker friend create a sophisticated presentation box for the set.

“Thank you so much Brad and Angie for trusting me with a project like this,” he noted in his post. “I hope they bring you many years of enjoyment.”
