An Officially Licensed Colt Pistol
The Fight to Defend America’s Freedom Continues
Even though the United States of America has been independent for more than 235 years, no free nation can rest on its laurels. As Americans, it is our duty to remain vigilant. Today, America Remembers proudly presents an exclusive and Officially Licensed Colt .45 Tribute that celebrates the icons and ideas that make our nation so great. The Colt “We the People” Tribute is a classically decorated Colt® Government Model® Pistol in caliber .45 ACP. Each working Colt .45 pistol captures the spirit and sacrifice of America’s founding patriots and the freedoms they fought to secure. Craftsmen commissioned specifically by America Remembers decorate both sides of the blued steel slide in elegant 24-karat gold, including the grip screws, slide stop, hammer, safety lock, and magazine catch.
The Fight for Freedom Never Ends
American firearms enthusiasts are keenly aware of the ongoing battles for personal liberty. Decisions are constantly being made for us by elected politicians and Federal and State Courts that challenge our freedom in ways that the architects and authors of the Constitution could have never imagined. Or maybe great leaders like Washington, Madison, and Jefferson knew exactly what was ahead for our nation?
Reading the words of our Founding Fathers, it is clear that they understood the challenges to come. Our Founding Fathers recognized that our freedom and liberty cannot be taken for granted. As citizens, the biggest mistake we can make is to take our freedom for granted. The day we do is the day our freedoms start to slip away.
-The Colt® “We the People” Tribute Pistol is a work of art in blued steel with elegant 24-karat gold artwork.
– The left side prominently features the opening phrase of the preamble to the United States Constitution: “We the People of the United States” and a scene depicting the Boston Tea Party. Also featured is a scene depicting three ragtop patriots marching across a battlefield with their drums and fife in hand. Known as “Yankee Doodle,” this well-known scene is an iconic image of the American fighting spirit. Also featured on the left side, near the hammer, is the familiar stylized Colt logo, signifying that each pistol in the edition is an Officially Licensed Colt issue.
-On the right side, artwork depicting “Washington Crossing the Delaware” is prominently featured. The classic and well-known painting commemorates General George Washington’s crossing of the Delaware River on a cold Christmas night in 1776, during the American Revolutionary War.
-Right side also features two exerts from the Preamble to the United States Constitution in elegant script on flowing banners. “Secure the Blessings of Liberty”’ and “To Ourselves and our Posterity”, taken from the stirring introduction to the Constitution. While the main text of the Constitution has become a hotbed of debate among politicians, judges, and scholars, the Preamble remains a short, simple statement of purpose. It was an introduction written by the founding Fathers to summarize why we fought and what we fought for.
What makes the Colt “We the People” Tribute such an important firearm is that we will keep the message alive for future generations. It celebrates the birth of our nation and our continued support for the Constitution. It stirs our passion and our patriotism. Whether you are a firearms collector, a history buff, or simply a proud American, this Tribute will ensure that the lessons of history will be remembered for decades to come. Much like the United States, the pistol chosen for this Tribute is built to last.
An American Original
There is no better canvas for the “We the People” Tribute than the Colt Government Model .45 pistol. It is an American-made firearm legend that defended our liberty through major world wars and history-making conflicts. No firearm in history can boast a more impressive record of American military service than the classic Colt Government Model .45 which served as the official sidearm for our country’s Armed Forces from 1911 to 1985. More than a century later, it is still considered by generations of American Veterans to be one of the best and most powerful military sidearms ever issued.
