You may think of Thompson Auto-Ordnance as the maker of the famous “Tommy Gun” and other classic firearms throughout history, but this venerable company is still releasing exciting, attractive, and devastatingly accurate new designs. Case in point? The “I Stand” Custom 1911. You don’t have to be a big 1911 fan to love this new pistol…but you do have to love America.
Kahr Firearms Group, which includes Kahr Arms, Magnum Research, Inc., and Thompson Auto-Ordnance, is paying tribute to those who truly gave all for America. The “I Stand” 1911 honors all those who sacrificed their lives in the service of our country. For this reason, the phrase “All Gave Some, Some Gave All” is engraved on the dust cover. The words “I Stand” are engraved on the right side of the slide; “Freedom Is Not Free” is engraved on the left side of the slide–a powerful reminder of the many who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom. The American Flag is on the right grip, and the left grip depicts a battlefield memorial for a fallen warrior. The finish is a worn Cerakote in black and gray. Underneath is the same made in the USA, Auto-Ordnance GI 1911 that you know and trust.
Each pistol is a 5”, GI pattern 1911, chambered in .45 ACP. The slide, sear, and disconnector are machined from solid bar stock, properly heat treated for many thousands of rounds of reliable shooting. The sights, safety, trigger, and beavertail are GI pattern. Unlike GI guns, all Auto-Ordnance 1911s are precisely machined to modern standards. This guarantees that the GI 1911 may look like the original, but will shoot with a degree of accuracy far superior to the military guns of yesteryear. Owning the “I Stand 1911” gives the modern shooter a chance to own a piece of history, while making a powerful statement in support of the brave Americans who paid the ultimate price preserving our freedom.
The “I Stand” 1911 (1911BKOC1) comes with a 7-round magazine and has an MSRP of $1,313. Contact your local firearms dealer to purchase. (Of course, if you’re more of a “Desert Eagle” kind of person, now is a great time to remind you that we’re giving one away!)
