Auto-Ordnance just told us about some pretty cool-lookin’ pistols they’ve got available. Meet the Squadron and Case Hardened 1911’s.
Here’s what they said.
The Custom “Squadron” 1911 Pistol
The latest custom 1911 in Auto-Ordnance’s WWII commemorative series is the “Squadron” model. This pistol features custom graphics reminiscent of those painted on fighter aircraft during the war. The muzzle displays the “shark mouth” nose art often seen on American fighter planes like the P-40 Warhawk. The Army Air Corps insignia is on both sides, and a rivet pattern is engraved over the gun. The finish is a highly durable, worn black and gray cerakote. The overall appearance makes for a pistol that looks like a WWII fighter plane getting ready to race into the skies hunting bandits! Auto-Ordnance is proud to offer this latest custom 1911 in honor of the pilots who flew in defense of our nation during WWII . May their bravery and sacrifice always be remembered!
The “Squadron” 1911 is chambered in .45 ACP and features checkered wood grips with the U.S. logo. It comes shipped with a 7-round magazine. The model number is 1911BKOWC3 and it has an MSRP of $1,106. Contact your local firearms dealer to purchase.

The Custom Case Hardened 1911 Pistol
Taking a classic 1911 to the next level without diminishing its history is no easy feat, but adding an even more classic finish formally raises the bar. Auto-Ordnance has done just that with the new GI Series 1911 with “case hardened” finish. This time honored tradition of working steel produces distinct and unique patterns of color long sought after by firearms aficionados. The Auto-Ordnance Case Hardened 1911s are each a work of art, covered in a beautiful, swirling finish. Beneath the colorful surface is an all-steel, 5 inch, “GI” pattern 1911 pistol, chambered in powerful .45 ACP. The grips are checkered wood with the “US” military logo.
While every Auto-Ordnance GI 1911 is made to replicate the look of the original guns, they are also equipped with a precisely machined barrel. This guarantees that they may look like a GI pistol, but they will shoot with a level of accuracy the originals could not match. The Auto-Ordnance Case Hardened 1911 gives today’s shooter a chance to own a beautifully finished piece of American military history, and experience legendary shooting performance with every trip to the range!
The Case Hardened 1911, model 1911GCH, is chambered in .45 ACP and features checkered wood grips with the U.S. logo. It comes shipped with a 7-round magazine and has an MSRP of $1,327.
