Rangers Lead the Way!
That’s the motto of the U.S. Army Rangers. Highly skilled and expertly trained, nothing stops a Ranger from achieving his objective. The Colt® Ranger Spirit Tribute Pistol from America Remembers honors the army’s elite fighting corps for doing what they do best…moving “farther, faster and fighting harder than any other soldier in the world.”
They are the eyes and ears of the U.S. Army…the highly skilled, expertly trained team that goes in first. They lead the way anywhere in the world to carry out surveillance missions and precision raids with vigilance, strength and resolve. To wear the gold and black Ranger tab on your sleeve is to be one of the most elite combat soldiers in the world.
For generations, U.S. Army Rangers have given their all for our country. This tradition continues today as Rangers remain at the forefront in the battle against our enemies. In their honor, America Remembers salutes the Army’s elite fighting force with the Colt® Ranger Spirit Tribute .45 Pistol, an Officially Licensed Colt Commemorative issued by America Remembers.
To honor the legendary Rangers and their storied heritage, we have chosen the classic Colt® Government Model® Pistol. Perhaps no handgun holds a greater significance in our nation’s history than the Colt Government Model 1911 pistol, a favorite of American servicemen in major military campaigns, including World War I, World War II, Korea and Vietnam.
Left side of the slide features a wary Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol crossing a stream and entering an ensured recon box just hours before dawn. Also featured is an illustration, inspired by the Ranger Creed, “I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy,” as Rangers help one of their own to safety. To the rights of the banner, an illustration depicts today’s elite Rangers equipped with automatic weapons, a grenade launcher and a VRC-68 radio, an essential piece of equipment for any Ranger team on a mission. Also featured are two Rangers parachuting to a designated target.
This stirring Tribute takes you into action with the Rangers. On the right side of the slide, artwork depicts Ranger teams as they insert into hostile-held territory by helicopter. Rangers leap down from their helicopters to the landing zone and head for cover. They carry Government Issue and personal choice weaponry to get the job done. A roster lists the earliest conflicts in which Rangers played a vital role. At the muzzle is an excerpt from the Ranger Creed.
Craftsmen specifically commissioned by America Remembers decorate each Tribute.
Custom Display Case
An optional high-quality display case is also available. The locking glass lid protects against dust and unauthorized handling. The glass lid locks with a brass key, and the case liner is custom-contoured to securely hold your pistol in place.
