World War II conjures up images of Adolf Hitler, the Blitz, Stalingrad, D-Day, and Atomic bombings over Hiroshima and Nagasaki. But while our men fought that epic conflict overseas, the women supported the war effort by bolstering industry at home. A new custom gun from Auto-Ordnance, the “Victory Girls” 1911, pays tribute to those women.

Using a 1911A1 GI in .45 ACP as its base, the Auto-Ordnance Victory Girls 1911 boasts a deep cut laser engraving of a pin-up girl on the right side, and an updated “Rosie the Riveter” character on the left. Both sides of the frame also sport the star roundel used by the U.S. Army Air Corps. In addition, the gun sports a worn look via its two color Cerakote finish of Armor Black and Gunmetal Grey. Furthermore, the checkered wood grips have a US property logo.

The Auto-Ordnance Victory Girls 1911 features a five-inch barrel; seven-round magazine; overall length of 8.5 inches; blade front sight and windage-adjustable rear sight.

This gun was developed as part of a collaboration between Kahr Firearms Group and Louisiana-based Outlaw Ordnance. Kahr previously worked with Outlaw Ordnance on its Magnum Research “We The People” 1911.

The Victory Girls 1911 made its debut at SHOT Show in Las Vegas earlier this year, and it is now shipping. The MSRP is $990.
