Resident Evil Village’s M1911 pistol and Jack Handle can be discovered in the same location, so here’s where you find them. 

Resident Evil Village features plenty of deadly weapons for you to get your hands on, but one of the most useful is the M1911. This trusty pistol has been a staple in Capcom’s survival horror titles and many players will be looking to add it to their arsenal. Not only is the M1911 much stronger than Ethan’s standard LEMI pistol, but it also comes packed with a fully automatic rate of fire. 

While the M1911 won’t effortlessly enable you to take down the game’s toughest enemies, it will get you out of particularly tough situations where you need the added fire rate.

The Jack Handle is also found alongside Resident Evil Village’s M1911, which will also come in handy when moving certain obstacles out of the way.

The M1911 is pretty powerful in Resident Evil Village.

Finding the M1911 and Jack Handle can be a little tricky in Resident Evil Village, especially when you’re being hunted by the Lycans – the terrifying canine-human hybrids that roam the outskirts of Castle Dimitrescu. 

In order to get both these items, you’ll first need to make it past the prologue and secure the four masks needed to escape Lady Dimitrescu’s clutches. From there, you’ll be able to scour the creepy village in search of items.

Once you’ve entered the above digits, the cabinet will swing open and you’ll be able to claim both the M1911 and Jack Handle. 

LEMI vs M1911

As the LEMI is the first handgun to help you out of those sticky situations early on in Village, many players will be unsure of whether to switch it out for the M1911 once you’ve acquired it. Here’s our LEMI vs M1911 stats breakdown to help you in your decision:

Gun Stats
LEMI
  • Power: 160
  • Rate of Fire: 0.27
  • Reload Speed: 2.7
  • Ammo Capacity: 10
M1911
  • Power: 160
  • Rate of Fire: 0.27
  • Reload Speed: 2.9
  • Ammo Capacity: 7

As you can see, at a base rate, the LEMI vs M1911 stats breakdown is closely matched, and each gun remains relatively similar. However, with upgrades, the guns can be upgraded to a maximum of:

Gun Stats
LEMI
  • Power: 130
  • Rate of Fire: 0.36
  • Reload Speed: 2.2
  • Ammo Capacity: 16
M1911
  • Power: 195
  • Rate of Fire: 0.2
  • Reload Speed: 2
  • Ammo Capacity: 15

Once fully upgraded, however, the M1911 is the clear outlier in terms of aiding you in taking down those pesky Lycans and Gargoyles throughout your playthroughs, and we’d personally recommend selling the LEMI on to The Duke.
