Auto-Ordnance .45 ACP Semi-Automatic Pistol

Owners Manual,After nearly four long years of fighting, members of the United States Marine Corps, Navy, Army, and Coast Guard had accomplished many seemingly insurmountable tasks. Yet in February of 1945, a battle lay before them that would go down in our nation’s history as one of the most difficult victories ever achieved. On the desolate volcanic atoll known as Iwo Jima, a new chapter was written in the history of the United States military—and in particular of the Marines, who fought tooth and nail for every inch of land against a suicidal foe.
Their victory will be forever remembered, immortalized in the famous photograph of the flag raising on Mount Suribachi. On this, the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Iwo Jima, Auto-Ordnance’s latest historical gun series honors all those who fought there. Each gun in the Iwo Jima Tribute series is custom engraved with images commemorating the battle, and finished in durable Cerakote.
The Iwo Jima 1911 is custom engraved by Outlaw Ordnance on the left side with battle scenes, and the official name for the action: “Operation Detachment”. The grips feature Admiral Chester Nimitz’s famous quote, “Among the men who fought on Iwo Jima, uncommon valor was a common virtue”; along with a depiction of the famous flag raising on Mount Suribachi. The right side also features a battle scene, the dates of the operation, “Iwo Jima”, and an advancing American flag. The grip depicts an eagle and anchor. The finish is a Cerakote OD Green with distressed Copper color. Each Iwo Jima 1911 starts as an all steel, Auto-Ordnance GI model 1911, made entirely in the United States. The caliber is .45 ACP, with a 5” barrel, and one seven round magazine.
