The First Officially Licensed Stainless Steel Colt® .45 Pistol Ever Issued by America Remembers
America Remembers introduces the Colt® Proud To Be An American Tribute Pistol. This Colt .45 Pistol is a patriotic firearm featuring the Statue of Liberty and the American bald eagle.
If you are a proud American who stands a little taller with every wave of the Stars and Stripes, if you can see an eagle soaring in the sky and feel its sense of freedom, if you stand with pride when the Star-Spangled Banner is sung and you still feel a sense of awe whenever you see the Statue of Liberty, then you know what it means to be a patriotic citizen of the greatest nation in the world. Our country is truly America the beautiful, land of the free, home of the brave; a land of unlimited opportunity for every citizen.
As Americans, we treasure the symbols of our nation because they represent our hard fought steps along the road to liberty and democracy. They remind us of the men and women who sacrificed their lives so we can live in freedom, and all those who have served and continue to serve our country, upholding the values we hold dear as a nation.
Now, America Remembers is proud to issue a Tribute, honoring the spirit of American freedom and every brave American who has fought to preserve it: The Colt® Proud To Be An American Tribute Pistol. This historic issue captures the spirit of America on a truly classic American firearm: the Colt® Government Model® .45 Pistol. The Tribute is a working, officially licensed Colt .45 pistol that is also the first stainless steel pistol ever issued by America Remembers! Craftsmen commissioned specifically by America Remembers have decorated the Colt .45 pistol in handsome 24-karat gold artwork with a unique combination of engraving, a matte finish steel background and a magnificent multi-finish 24-karat gold and copper design to create an overall stunning effect.
A Classic American Firearm- Colt .45 Pistol
Each Tribute is a fully functional Colt® Government Model® .45 Pistol, an American icon that many of its owners consider one of the best pistols ever made. Firearms produced by Colt have played a prominent role in American history, and the classic firearms produced by Colt have been a favorite of firearms enthusiasts and collectors for generations. More fighting men have carried the Model .45 than any other pistol in history. It defended our freedom – and the world’s – throughout World War I and World War II, Korea and Vietnam. We at America Remembers considered the Colt .45 pistol a natural choice for our tribute to American patriotism.

Now is your opportunity to own a truly magnificent Tribute that encompasses all that it means to be an American and to show your pride in the American way of life. This ColtÂ® Proud To Be An American Tribute Pistol is dedicated to the American spirit and is a tribute to the patriotic spirit of those who fought for our freedom and liberty, along with those who continue to stand ready to defend our great nation and the values we hold dear. As you hold this Colt .45 pistol in your own hands, you will experience that special feeling, which says, “I’m proud to be an American – the greatest nation in the world!”
In addition to precision laser engraving using a CO2 laser, the artwork is enhanced by gleaming 24K gold and rich copper (a melding of gold and copper). The result is a unique tri-color presentation, unlike anything you’ve seen on a firearm before. Furthermore, a hand-applied blackened patina is used to bring out additional details. The barrel bushings, magazine catch, trigger and safety are also plated in gleaming 24 karat gold. And we’ve retained one traditional element on this new .45 pistol: the checkered rosewood grips are the venerable World War I diamond pattern. The overall result is a masterpiece that combines 21st century technology and the time-honored tradition of the gunmaker’s art.
The stainless steel slide has a tactical bead blasted frame to give it a handsome matte finish, which perfectly complements the artwork featured in stunning 24-karat gold on this Colt .45 pistol. At barrel’s end on both sides the rays of the sun are featured, representing the strength of the American way of life and the pride that every American feels who truly loves their country.
Three treasured symbols dear to the heart of every American citizen are featured on each side of the slide. The Statute of Liberty is magnificently featured as a welcoming symbol to every immigrant, visitor, and citizen of our country who returns home. The “lady with the lamp” has stood as a symbol of our national freedom for over a century. The majestic American bald eagle is featured on this Colt .45 pistol, symbolizing our nation’s boundless, soaring spirit and its staunch determination to defend liberty against all oppressors. The Stars and Stripes is also featured as both a foundation that all other American symbols rest upon and a spanning representation of our country’s enduring spirit of freedom and unity.
