Joe Mantegna, of Criminal Minds fame, handed over a custom Sig Sauer 1911 to be included in the recently re-opened National Firearms Museum’s Hollywood Gun Exhibit inside the NRA Museum.

The pistol now on display is identical to the one his character, David Rossi, uses in the 14th season of Criminal Minds. The Sig Sauer 1911 TACOPS Full-Size handgun features the engraved eagle, globe and anchor of the U.S. Marine Corps to represent the character’s time in service.

NRA President Lt. Col. Oliver North, USMC RET accepted Mantegna’s 1911 donation on behalf of the NRA. Sig Sauer said it’s privileged to hold a space inside the museum.

“It’s an honor to have the Sig Sauer 1911 TACOPS be chosen by Mr. Mantegna as the pistol of choice for his Criminal Minds character, FBI Special Agent David Rossi,” Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President of Commercial Sales at Sig Sauer, said in a press release. “Then to have it literally be placed into history at the NRA Museum by Mr. Mantegna is very special, and humbling, for all of us here at Sig Sauer.”

Mantegna is an active gun supporter, hosting the Outdoor Channel’s series Gun Stories. Mantegna was on hand at the grand re-opening of the Hollywood Gun Exhibit at the NRA Museum.
