There is no question that our country has become divided over recent years. Even those who previously didn’t, couldn’t or didn’t want to acknowledge it, are now seeing it. But we are Americans and we have shown time and time again that we pull together in times of crisis. Thus is the message Auto-Ordnance is sending with their new United We Stand 1911.
The Auto-Ordnance United We Stand 1911
Building on an Auto-Ordnance stainless pistol, the United We Stand 1911 is made entirely in the United States. Utilizing some of Auto-Ordnance’s best features, the only thing rivaling its meaningful beauty is its functionality.
The slide features engraving on either side, between the front and rear serrations and has a Black Armor Cerakote, with clear coating. On one side are the words, “Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them ‘every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand,’” from Matthew 12:25. On the obverse side are the simple, but meaningful words, “United We Stand.”
Along the sides and top of the slide, stars adorn its length where there is an absence of text. The stars work in tandem with the slide serrations and additional engraved stripes for a “stars and stripes” look.
The slide runs on a full-length recoil guide rod and features TruGlo night sights with forward swept rear. A skeletonized hammer protrudes above the extended beavertail grip safety, as well. The 1911 features an adjustable trigger allowing you to personalize the shooting experience. Additionally, the extended magazine release ejects the included 7-round magazine after expending rounds through the 5-inch match grade barrel, in .45 ACP.
Finally, the grip features a machine checkered front strap and beautifully engraved aluminum grips. On one side stands the Statue of Liberty, with an eagle head watching over as two men pray together, at her feet. The obverse side features our national motto “In God We Trust,” with united hands, binding our nation together. The statement is uniquely superimposed over the American flag.
The Auto-Ordnance United We Stand 1911 is available now with an MSRP of $1,839.00. For more info, please visit Auto-Ordnance.com.
From the Auto-Ordnance website, “Each custom firearm is a unique work of art containing hand created content. As a result, no two firearms are exactly alike, and color may slightly vary between individual pieces. Final products may not exactly match depictions in advertisements.”
