In Tribute to the United States Navy
In honor of the United States
Navy and the men and women who are serving and have served through the
years, America Remembers proudly presents the pistol. Issued on the
classic military Colt Government Model Pistol, this pistol is decorated
with artwork honoring all those who have proudly served in the United
States Navy. Crafted of the finest blued
and parkerized steel, this magnificent firearm is made by Colt

Featuring the familiar sleek lines and
efficient design that has made the Colt .45 a legend, this is a sidearm
carried by Naval officers and sailors for many years.
Each pistol is decorated by craftsmen
commissioned specifically for this issue by America Remembers. Etched in 24-karat gold on the left
and right sides of the slide are beautiful hand-decorated images and words
reflecting the spirit and history of the United States Navy.
Revered For Generations
First adopted by the U.S. Navy in 1911, the
Colt .45 has been praised for its endurance, reliability and accuracy.
Durable, powerful and easy to maintain, the Colt .45 proved perfectly
suited to battle conditions. It occupies a position of respect
unparalleled in the world of military firearms.
Colt historian and author R. L. Wilson has
written that "more collectors pursue the Model 1911 and its variations
than any other automatic Colt."
Decorated In Lustrous 24-Karat Gold
In the center of the slide are the words,
"Don't Give Up The Ship," etched in 24-karat gold. Nearest to the breech
is USS Constitution, America's oldest commissioned ship in active duty.
Launched in 1797, she brought the U.S. Navy to prominence through its
victories in the War of 1812 and has served our country for nearly 200
years. "Old Ironsides," with donations from schoolchildren, was
refurbished and is berthed in Boston.
On the opposite side, etched in gold, is
the legend "United States Navy" and a guided missile
cruiser, one of the latest classes of ships in the Navy. Ships of the
class are 567 feet long with crews of 358. They are equipped with the
latest guided missiles, guns, torpedoes, radar and combat data systems.
