Women are getting due props from Auto Ordnance who announced the new Victory Girls 1911 is officially out the door and shipping to consumers.

The World War II themed pistols celebrate and honor women “whose strength drove industry at home in support of our boys fighting overseas.”

Beginning with a base 1911A1 G1 Model, the Victory Girls is a .45ACP pistol with standard five-inch barrel and seven-round magazine. The handgun measures 8.5-inches overall with a weight hovering around 40 ounces. The Victory Girls touts an adjustable rear sight that can be tweaked for windage and a blade front sight.

Sporting US property wood logo grips, the 1911 has been further customized with deep cut laser engraving of a pin-up girl on the right side with a “Rosie the Riveter” design on the left.

The gun also offers the USAAC Star Roundel on both sides of its frame. Auto Ordnance tops the design off giving the pistol a worn look with a two color Cerakote finish of Armor Black and Gunmetal Gray.

The Victory Girls model 1911 is available now and features a MSRP of $990.
