The Auto-Ordnance company – a Kahr Firearms Group brand – introduces ther new United We Stand 1911 pistol, a custom-grade variant of America's most iconic and quintessential semi-automatic handgun, entirely dedicated to the flag and core values of the US!
Auto-Ordnance is a well-known brand owned and operated by the Kahr Firearms Group, focusing on classic firearm designs for sport shooting, hunting and personal and property protection such as 1911-A1 type pistols, M1 carbine variants, and civilian-grade semi-automatic versions of the legendary Thompsons sub-machine gun.
Among the newest entries in the Auto-Ordnance line of 1911 variants for 2021 is the United We Stand 1911 .45 ACP semi-automatic pistol, a custom-grade creation based on Auto-Ordnance's competition-oriented 1911 TCAC6 pistol, modified to celebrate the spirit of union and strength through union itself that is at the very core of American values.
The motto "United we stand" comes from Matthew, 12:25 («Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand») – a verse that can be found engraved on the left side of the stainless steel slide on this fantastic pistol, featuring front and rear slide serrations, a set of lightening cuts on the left side, and a marvelous decoration that reprises the stars-and-stripes pattern of the Old Glory.
The frame of the new United We Stand 1911 pistol is likewise manufactured out of stainless steel, featuring a set of custom-made aluminum grips featuring the engraved motto "In God We Trust" and united hands binding the nation together on the left side, and iconic images such as a bald eagle and the Statue of Liberty on the right side, along with the image of a black and a white man holding hands – a powerful message of strenght through union under liberty regardless of ethnic or social differences.
From a plain technical point of view, the United We Stand 1911 pistol features classic competition-oriented Government pistol features such as an adjustable, lightened trigger and a skeletonized hammer; full-length recoil spring guide rod; extended beavertail grip safety; checkered slide stop release lever; enlarged magazine release catch; and right side only frame-mounted manual safety.
Other features of Auto-Ordnance's new United We Stand 1911 include a 5-inch Match Grade barrel, a flared ejection port for increased reliability; a set of TruGlo night sights; a Black Armor Cerakote finish with a clear coating; and 20-lines-per-inch machine checkering on both the mainspring housing and front strap.
The new United We Stand 1911 pistol feeds through standard single-stack, .45-caliber 1911 compatible magazines; a single 7-rounds magazine comes issued from factory with each sample.
The United We Stand 1911 is 21,84 cm / 8.6" long overall, and weighs in at 1,04 kilograms (2.3 lbs) when empty; it is covered by a 1-year warranty, and is already available on the US commercial market upon order at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $1.849,99.
Products from the Kahr Firearms Group and all controlled brands are distributed in Europe by Ferkinghoff International; as of today there is no information concerning availability and pricing of the United We Stand 1911 on the export markets.
