No idea is more fundamental to Americans than freedom. Our freedom is deeply embedded in our history, our lives, and the hope we have for our children’s lives. It is our greatest strength. It is our strongest bond. It is a birthright for all Americans.
Freedom is in our blood. We cherish everything that reminds us of this freedom: the Statue of Liberty, the stars and stripes of the American flag, the soaring bald eagle, and the Declaration of Independence. The Colt® Spirit of “American Freedom Tribute” Pistol captures the spirit of America on a truly classic American firearm: the Colt® Government Model® .45 Pistol.
Each Colt® Spirit of “American Freedom Tribute” Pistol is issued on the classic, working, Officially Licensed Colt .45 stainless steel pistol with color artwork. The Colt® Government Model® .45 is an American icon in its own right. Many firearms enthusiasts and collectors consider the Colt .45 pistol one of the finest pistols ever made. In addition, it is widely renowned as being one of the most “American” firearms ever made.
Craftsmen commissioned specifically for this project by America Remembers have decorated the Tribute with artwork featured in a magnificent multi-tone finish of 24-karat gold and copper with a matte-finish stainless steel background to create an overall stunning effect. As a final touch, the hammer, slide stop, magazine release, barrel bushing, thumb safety and grip screws are also finished in lustrous 24-karat gold.
