1911 Auto-Ordnance Bootlegger Features
The Thompson is often called the “gun that made the 20’s roar”, but it was not the only reason for that saying. In fast cars with loads of moonshine, 1920’s bootleggers roared down country roads, evading the law and delivering white lightning to speakeasies. Lawmen raced after the motor bandits, wielding Tommy Guns and 1911s. It was not long before Hollywood depicted these duels on the big screen. The Roaring 20’s blazed a trail into American pop culture and history.
Auto-Ordnance’s latest custom guns commemorate the era with the “Bootlegger” 1911. This gun is artfully engraved with depictions of 1920s autos, newspaper print, wanted posters, and historical images from the time.
The 1911 slide is engraved “Bootlegger Prohibition Edition”, and “Proof Tennessee Moonshine”. Beautiful scrollwork covers the American Walnut wood grips, and sections of the steel. The finish is distressed Midnight Blue Cerakote with a clear coating overlayed. The wood grips are also distressed and then stained. The 1911 features a 5” barrel, and one seven round magazine, and is chambered in .45 ACP.
