In honor of the pilots who flew in America’s defense during World War II, the gunmaker who brought us "Tommy Gun" and other classic firearms is now offering the Custom "Squadron" 1911 pistol.
The latest custom 1911 in Auto-Ordnance’s World War II commemorative series, this pistol features custom graphics reminiscent of those painted on fighter aircraft during the war. The muzzle displays the “shark mouth” nose art often seen on American fighter planes like the P-40 Warhawk, appearing to get ready to race into the skies hunting bandits. The Army Air Corps insignia is on both sides, and a rivet pattern is engraved over the gun. The finish is a highly durable, worn black and gray cerakote.
The "Squadron" 1911 is chambered in .45 ACP and features checkered wood grips with the U.S. logo. It ships with a 7-round magazine.
