Sylar ultimately lets the bullet go when he learns that Arthur is not his father and the bullet goes through his head, killing him.

Trivia

  • 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 level of customization makes the guns quite unique and recognizable. SVI originally made these pistols at the request of Michael Mann for the 2006 film Miami Vice. 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.
  • Most of the major characters of Heroes have carried or used these guns at least once including Mohinder Suresh, Claire Bennet, Rene, Isaac Mendez, Matt Parkman, Peter Petrelli and Noah Bennet.
  • While working for Building 26 instead of the Company, Noah Bennet uses his Company gun as his sidearm.
  • Given Noah Bennet's propensity to use a Company gun even when he's not working for the Company such as when he worked for Building 26 and during Heroes Reborn, he seems to have adopted his Company gun as his personal weapon as well as his work weapon.
  • While many characters carried these guns in the original series, only Noah Bennet still carries one in the miniseries.
  • After he retired, Noah kept his old Company gun hidden in a hole in his home's wall in a bag of his old things. When he went back to his old life, he took up his old gun as well.
  • In Heroes Reborn, the grip on Noah's old Company gun seems to be of a different color than previously seen on the guns.
  • Noah Bennet's most common method of harming his victims is threatening or otherwise harming them with a Company gun.
  • In June 13th, Part One, Noah fits his Company gun with a silencer in order to shoot Erica Kravid.
  • In June 13th, Part Two, Noah changes the past slightly by shooting Erica Kravid in the leg with his Company gun. His intent was to kill her but he was stopped by his past self. The shooting led to Quentin Frady meeting Erica much earlier than he did in the original timeline and thus joining her side as a spy rather than truly working with Noah. It also restores Quentin to life in the present after Noah returns from 2014.
