The Deadpool Pistol

Deadpool could easily be referred to as the antithesis of all things superhero, and yet the movie’s namesake did have a bit of hero in him (sort of). The movie was released immediately prior to Valentine’s Day 2016 and grossed $363.1 million here in the United States, pulling in another $419.3 million in foreign countries. Those numbers gave it a financial boost higher than all X-Men movies and although there is more, you’re not here for a movie recap. In the wake of Deadpool’s popularity, gun company Whiskey Tango Foxtrot recently unveiled their ode to the smart-assed vigilante: a Deadpool-themed pistol.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot chose a Colt 1911 and finished it as is befitting, well, Deadpool. The pistol has a red battleworn finish – because what other color would it be – and the mag is marked down one side with “chimichanga”. After all, as any true Deadpool fan knows, he loves saying the word…”Don’t even like chimichangas all that much. I just love saying it. Chimichanga. Chimichanga. Chimichanga” (Yeah, he said it. Check out “Cable and Deadpool”, Volume 1, #13). But the custom grips just might be the coolest part. The 1911’s grips are black with “Deadpool’s Gun” scrawled in white across the top and a red sketch of the masked man in question’s face which just happens to be reminiscent of his belt buckle, too. Then again, “Smile, Wait for Flash” is engraved into the muzzle. Basically, you don’t just want this gun. You need this gun.

    Is there an instinctive sighting system like on a SVI Tiki or they just thought sights were not needed?
    Overall kinda cool, I just wonder if it’s a lawsuit waiting to happen…

    • Gary Kirk

      Looks to maybe have some kind of “sight channel” ground down the length of the slide. But I could be wrong, need a pic of the top..

      • Bob

        Yeah, a cop I know and I shot one once. As I recall, both of us shot low with it. The owner allegedly had no such problems.

      • 2wheels

        That’s exactly it, it’s a Colt New Agent.

        • Gary Kirk

          Figured as much, kinda like some of the pocket revolvers.. Never handled a Colts new model, love 1911s and ARs, just steer far from Colt..

    • Chris Miller

      The base gun is a Colt New Agent. The gun does not have sights nor dovetails for them from factory. It is meant to be used as a point shooting gun. You could probably ask to have sights installed though.

      • 2wheels

        There was a special edition from TALO with XS sights.

    • hellofromillinois

      Lawsuit was my first thought too. I can’t imagine this is licensed by Marvel.

  • Dickie

    Its whiskey tango firearms. No foxtrot on it

    • Sunshine_Shooter

      “Firearms” is the F.

    • Madcap_Magician

      … there is for this gun!

  • Major Tom

    Does this pistol think in little yellow boxes?

  • Billy Jack

    No way I catch heat from prosecutors with that after a shooting.

    • KestrelBike

      some guy on a gun forum was selling a taurus revolver that had “Suck It” engraved on the yoke/crane (had to look it up, w/e the front of the frame is that you’d see underneath the barrel if the gun was pointed at you). Not sure how that was ever a good idea to have done.

    • Sunshine_Shooter

      Are you serious? Did you seriously look at the pictures, read the article, and even for a split second consider using this gun for defensive use? This gun is a show piece, maybe shot a couple times, but not to be carried and/or used for defense.

      • Joseph Goins

        Sarcasm, dude.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    “Smile, wait for flash”
    Thats awesome, I want one of those barrels.

  • William Nelson

    Comic book tie-in firearms always weird me out to some extent. Besides, DP rocks DEagles, does he not?

    Just sayin’ if you’re going to geek out, do so in the correct way.

    Damn. Now I look like a nerd too.

    -letting myself out the door over there —->

    • Paul White

      that was my first thought: this needs to be a 50 AE Desert Eagle. No other gun is acceptable.

    • Giolli Joker

      Well, in the movie he even as a bag full of assorted guns… there might be something similar as far as we know.

    • Christopher Hartman

      He has used many guns over the years

    • WHiskey Tango Firearms llc

      Deadpool uses a 1911 in the comics as well as a 50 Deagle.
      The “Deadpool’s Gun” on the grip is also a nod to the comics.

      I will be offering a limited run of Deadpool Desert Eagles… whenever they come back in stock.

  • Xtorin O’hern

    my town has appeared on this blog many times now, but this is the first positive one!!

  • A bearded being from beyond ti

    That’s ugly as hell

  • Michael Valera

    Lolz… no one will be buying this pistol. Marvel is, as we speak, writing the cease and disist that will explain how they will be the new owners of WTF if they even sell a single pistol that is covered in their unlicensed Deadpool IP.

    • Independent George

      Yeah, I just don’t see Disney/Marvel approving this.

      • Phil Hsueh

        But there’s the kicker, the Deadpool movie wasn’t a Marvel movie and is not a part of the MCU; it’s a FOX movie, they’re the ones who own the right to all things mutant in the Marvelverse as far as movies are concerned.

    • The comic book industry has always turned a blind eye to fan made stuff. Go to a con and you will see hundred of un licensed fan stuff for sale.

  • tt_ttf

    yeah – minor detail before you plonk down money…..Is is officially licensed?

    Damn good chance this will get shutdown REAL quick if not

  • Why use a frame that is cut for a beaver tail grip safety but then use that POS ugly one?

    • 2wheels

      That’s what the base gun comes with. Looks like they didn’t do much besides new grips and a paintjob.

  • Joseph Goins

    Deadpool could easily be referred to as the antithesis of all things superhero…

    Deadpool is an antihero, not an antithesis.

    I wonder if they will use this in the next Deadpool movie?

  • Don Ward

    The gun from the Clint Eastwood movie “The Deadpool” was better.

    Hell. The whole movie was better the clogged Taco Bell public restroom toilet that was Marvel’s Deadpool.

    You can stop making comic book movies anytime Hollywood.

  • im sure the jury will love it

  • Martin M

    Is there anything custom about this gun aside from the engraving on the barrel and a paint job?

    On a lighter note, can it break the fourth wall?

  • DanGoodShot

    1 million dollars! Bwahahahahaha. I do really like the paint. However they should have went with something bigger. Come on, it’s Deadpool. Think 50AE. Personally, I wouldn’t mind a Beretta 92 done like this.

    • desert eagles were what Deadpool was wielding.

      • DanGoodShot

        Exactly my point.

  • Ben Loong

    There’s only one acceptable pop culture build for a Colt New Agent.
