“Old Glory” has become the heartfelt term of endearment for our nation’s flag for generations of American patriots. From the legendary story of the famous “Old Glory” flag owned by Capt. William Driver, Americans have looked to the stars and stripes for inspiration during times of trial. With the new “Old Glory” custom 1911, Auto-Ordnance pays tribute to the flag that has waived gallantly over our nation through perilous fight, over the land of the free, and the home of the brave.
Each Old Glory 1911 features that name engraved on the left side of the slide, with the quote “I’m mighty proud of that ragged old flag” on the right side. The grips are engraved with “USA” and 1776. Stars and stripes also adorn both aluminum grip panels.
The Old Glory 1911 starts as a Thompson 1911TC series pistol. This stainless steel 1911 is made entirely in the United States. The finish is distressed Burnt Bronze Cerakote. It features an adjustable trigger, skeletonized hammer, full-length recoil guide rod, extended beavertail grip safety, extended magazine release, and a checkered slide stop lever. The front and rear combat sights are black, low profile. The ejection port is flared to aid in reliable function. Both mainspring housing and front strap are machined checkered at 20 lines per inch. Each pistol’s 5” match grade barrel is chambered in 45 ACP. One 7 round magazine is included.
