World War II-themed “Victory Girls” 1911s and others on hand at Auto-Ordnance’s booth impressed visitors to the 147th NRA Show last week.
The series is based on AO’s standard 1911A1 GI Model in .45ACP, with a 5-inch barrel, seven-round magazine, and U.S. property-marked wood grips. The pistol includes a carbon steel slide, sear, and disconnector machined from solid bar stock and low-profile sights. All are domestically made.
The pistol sports a worn look with a two-color Cerakote finish of Armor Black and Gunmetal Grey to resemble the skin of a WWII-era fighter, such as a P-47 Thunderbolt. Retail on the Victory Girls is $999.
