GENERAL GEORGE S. PATTON, JR TRIBUTE PISTOL
America Remembers is proud to offer a tribute to the accomplishments and indomitable spirit of this outstanding American leader. Here is a working Colt .45 ACP pistol, with the solid, hand-filling heft that veterans will remember. The concept and design of the Tribute has been officially authorized by the Family of George S. Patton, Jr.
Depicted on the right side of the slide is a scene from the Battle of the Bulge, featuring tanks and troops moving through the snow toward Bastogne. There is also a depiction of General Patton, standing in his Jeep, addressing his troops. At the rear of the slide, on both sides, are the stars of the Lieutenant General and General ranks.
The left side of the slide features two classic portraits of General Patton. Also featured is a tank, which played such an important role in achieving victory in Europe. General Patton is shown saluting the tanks and tankers in appreciation and respect for their significant contributions to the victory in Europe. Also included are two of his notable quotes: "An Army is a Team. It eats, sleeps, and fights as a Team." and "The soldier is the Army."
The grips on this deluxe tribute pistol are specially crafted of faux ivory, and adorned with the distinctive GSP monogram seen on General Patton's favorite pistols. As a final touch, grip screws, slide stop, hammer, safety lock and magazine catch are all hand-polished and finished with 24-karat gold.
On the top of the slide are inscribed the campaigns with which General Patton's name will forever be associated, followed by his signature
