(Greeley, PA) – Auto-Ordnance, maker of the famous “Tommy Gun” and other classic firearms throughout history, is announcing the last chance for customers to purchase the commemorative Victory Girls and Fly Girls 1911s.
The Victory Girls and Fly Girls 1911s were introduced last year as part of Auto-Ordnance’s WWII custom commemorative 1911 series. These two limited 1911 pistols will be available for purchase through the end of the year or until remaining stock is sold out. Contact your local firearms dealer to purchase one of these beautifully engraved pieces of history before they are gone for good.
The Victory Girls 1911 was designed to honor the women whose strength drove industry at home in support of our boys fighting overseas. Their sacrifices and accomplishments during that critical time in our country’s history will not be forgotten. Beginning with a base 1911A1 GI Model in .45ACP, it has the standard 5” barrel, seven round magazine, and US property logo wood grips. The Victory Girls model is then customized with deep cut laser engraving of a pin-up girl on the right side, and an updated “Rosie the Riveter” on the left. It also features the USAAC Star Roundel on both sides of the frame. The pistol is then given a worn look with a two-color Cerakote finish of Armor Black and Gunmetal Grey.
The Fly Girls 1911 honors the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs), who played a vital role in the war effort. Over 1000 women served as pilots during WWII, taking on vital roles operating aircraft in non-combat positions so their male counterparts could directly engage the enemy. These women aviators were pioneers in the profession, facing all of the risks and challenges shared by pilots of the time period. By war’s end, 38 had given their lives in service to their country. The right side of the Fly Girls 1911 features the diamond shaped badge of the Women’s Air Corps; its design is patterned after Greek goddess Athena’s shield. Nearby are the years of WASP service, 1941-47, and the slogan “Pistol Packin’ Mama”. Engraved on the left side is the title “Original Fly Girls”, and the cartoon gremlin “Fifinella”, a design by Walt Disney, used as the official WASP mascot during WWII. The Army Air Corps Roundel is on both sides of the slide.
