Two Presidential 1911s
(Greeley, PA) - From shortly after the 2016 election, Kahr Firearms Group has shown its appreciation for President Donald Trump’s patriotism and strong support for the Constitution of the United States. Beginning with the first “Trump 1911”, Kahr has expanded the product line into a series of custom firearms commemorating the election of the nation’s 45th President. The initial models were based on the Thompson 1911TC model pistols, with later guns offered in the Tommy Gun and AR15 product lines. For 2020, Kahr will offer two new Trump models, the POTUS (President of the United States), and KAG 1911s, customized to reflect President Trump’s dedication to preserving border security, and “Keeping America Great!” Jodi DePorter, Director of Marketing for Kahr Firearms Group, recently commented, “Our Trump commemorative series have been extremely successful products for Auto-Ordnance. There is continued demand for new Trump themed models. Clearly President Trump has been very popular with gun owners.”
Art and Engineering
Every gun in Auto-Ordnance's Trump series is a finely crafted example of both art and engineering. The POTUS and KAG pistols are based on the Thompson 1911TC, chambered in .45 ACP. The talented artists at Outlaw Ordnance apply detailed engravings to the guns, commemorating President Trump’s administration. Each 1911 features the President's 2020 campaign motto engraved on the left side of the slide, along with his image and the White House. On the right, the slide is engraved with "45th", and his name. The American Flag is engraved on the dust cover. Beautiful Hogue Goncalo wood grips are engraved with the flag, and an image of President Trump. Slide and frame flats are polished, then finished with super durable Cerakote Bronze for the POTUS gun, or Cerakote Clear for the KAG model. Controls are Cerakote Armor Black. The Thompson 1911TC series pistol is made entirely in the United States. It features an adjustable trigger, skeletonized hammer, full-length recoil guide rod, extended beavertail grip safety, extended magazine release, and a checkered slide stop lever. The front and rear combat sights are black, low profile. The ejection port is flared to aid in reliable function. Both mainspring housing and front strap are machined checkered at 20 lines per inch. Each pistol's 5" match grade barrel is chambered in 45 ACP. One 7 round magazine is included. The MSRP for the POTUS 1911 is $1,356, Model #1911TCAC4. The MSRP for the KAG 1911 is $1,325, Model #1911TCAC3.
