A Collector Firearm Dedicated to American Freedom and Independence
America Remembers proudly presents the American Eagle Pistol. This Colt .45 Pistol is a classic Patriotic Tribute firearm.
Congress declared the Eagle the official symbol of the United States in 1782. It is the central figure of the Great Seal, the Seal of the President of the United States, the Army, Navy, Air Force and many official government agencies. The proud Eagle, with piercing eyes, looks over toward the muzzle as his wings wrap around the barrel and slide of this Patriotic Tribute firearm. The wings and body of the eagle are engraved and etched in 24-karat gold, and the head is in silver by craftsmen commissioned specifically by America Remembers for this Tribute.
First adopted by the U.S. navy in 1911, the Colt .45 Pistol has been praised for its endurance, reliability, and accuracy. Durable, powerful, and easy to maintain, the Colt .45 Pistol proved ideally suited for battle conditions. It occupies a position of respect unparalleled in the world of military firearms. Colt’s historical consultant and author R. L. Wilson wrote, “More collectors pursue the Model 1911 and its variations than any other automatic Colt.”
Expertly crafted by Colt’s Manufacturing Company of Hartford, Connecticut, each Colt pistol is forged of steel the blued.
The American Flag adorns the inside lid of the case, and a brass plaque, engraved with the name “American Eagle” and an American eagle insignia is featured beside this Patriotic Tribute firearm. The case is luxuriously lined and the combination of the flag, the blue lining, and the blued steel and 24-karat gold artwork on the pistol, makes for an awe-inspiring presentation.
Complementing the sleek lines of the classic Colt design is the patriotic image of the American Eagle. His powerful wings stretch the length of the barrel and slide. His keen eyes face the muzzle in a vigilant gaze and he grips a set of arrows in his powerful talons.
The top of the handsome display case is inset with leather and stamped in gold and silver with the symbol of the American Eagle. A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany your American Eagle Pistol. Your individual registry number will be recorded in the Society’s Archives.
The graceful flight of the eagle embodies the spirit of freedom. Its strong brow and piercing eyes suggest vigilance, intelligence and courage. The large body and sharp talons convey a quiet power, and promise a swift and powerful response when provoked.
