Thompson Auto-Ordnance is known for making an updated, semi-automatic version of the famous Thompson "Tommy Gun" full-auto gun, along with new versions of other classic firearms. Now they are proud to introduce another firearm with historical roots, their new custom Liberty 1911 pistol.

The new Liberty 1911 is the latest patriotic commemorative pistol from Auto-Ordnance, and it echoes the sentiments of our Founding Fathers, warning all tyrants that they tread on American liberty at their peril. No better symbol of that exists than the Gadsden Flag, with its legendary motto “Don’t Tread on Me!”

The custom Liberty 1911 is engraved with “Liberty..Death” on the right side of the slide, which is set around the original Presidential Seal. The left side of the slide has the words “Don’t..Tread”, surrounded by the snake from the iconic Gadsden flag. The pistol has custom Goncalo wood grips, which feature 13 stars surrounding the Liberty Bell on the right panel, and “DTOM” on the left grip. The finish is a custom Cerakote mix of brown and black. This gun starts as an Auto-Ordnance GI Model 1911, made entirely in the United States. It features a 5-inch barrel, G.I. sights and is chambered in .45 ACP. One seven-round magazine is included.

Kahr Firearms Group partners with Outlaw Ordnance on the design and promotion of custom firearm projects. Outlaw Ordnance is based in West Monroe, Louisiana. The Auto-Ordnance Liberty 1911 pistol has an MSRP of $1,215, and more information is available at auto-ordnance.com.
