Colt 1911 Vietnam Veterans Tribute Semi Auto Pistol in .45 ACP Gold and Black – Pre-Owned

 

As America honors the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War, The American Historical Foundation is proud to salute those who served in the the Armed Forced during the Vietnam War by appropriately issuing this firing, museum-quality, Limited Edition of the classic Colt .45 military pistol.  Each Vietnam Tribute .45 is a working Colt Government Model pistol and fires .45 ACP ammo.

 

Craftsmen commissioned specifically for the Tribute by the Foundation polish and decorate each pistol.  Deep bas relief etchings, selectively plated with 24-karat gold, form the central panoply, with borders of strapped bamboo and dragons, the Asian symbol of power and protection.  Historical inscriptions include the dates of the war and General Westmoreland’s praise of all who served, along with the Republic of Vietnam Service Medal surmounted on napalm flames.  The Asian-motif artwork of bamboo and dragons continues, in etching and 24-karat gold plating, across the reverse of the slide.  The trigger, hammer, slide stop, magazine catch, safety lock, and grip screws are 24-karat gold plated.  Inset in each grip is a full-color, cloisonné medallion, incorporating the flag of the Republic of Vietnam.

 

The Vietnam War Tribute .45 is strictly limited to only 2,500 pistols worldwide.  Each pistol is engraved with its special registry number between 0001 and 2500 with the prefix VN for Vietnam.
