It was only two months ago that Kahr Arms Group announced their “We the People” Desert Eagle 1911 in collaboration with Outlaw Ordnance. The curb appeal was through the roof with the custom cerakoted finish and premium features. The joint ventures will continue between the custom finishing company Outlaw Ordnance and the Kahr Arms Group as they are ready to announce a NEW Auto Ordnance “Victory Girls” 1911.

It has been stated by Kahr Arms Group that multiple joint projects are scheduled this year between themselves and the Louisiana finishing company, but let’s examine the Victory Girls model first.

  • Battleworn Armor Black & Gunmetal Grey Cerakote finishes
  • Deep Laser Engraving of Pin-Up Girl on the Right Side
  • Deep Laser Engraving of an Updated “Rosie the Riverter” on the Left Side
  • USAAC Star Roundel on Both Sides of Slide
  • Ships w/ One 7-Round Magazine
  • U.S. Property Logo Wood Grips

The base model 1911 that this piece is constructed from is an Auto Ordnance 1911A1 G.I. model chambered for .45 ACP with a 5″ barrel. Originally, this concept was shown at SHOT Show in Las Vegas, but now Auto Ordnance is beginning to pump these out into the market.

The Victory Girls, similar to the “We the People” model recently introduced, are a special and limited edition run. Auto Ordnance is currently in pre-production on these models and has started shipping a few orders already.

The starting MSRP is $990 for that throwback look of “Rosie the Riveter” and a slightly Battleworn cerakote finish.

Auto Ordnance provides this final statement encapsulating the spirit of this pistol:

[The Victory Girl is] designed to honor the women whose strength drove industry at home in support of our boys fighting overseas.

So with this limited run 1911, the features provided, the look, the nostalgia and everything this pistol is about… Would you buy one?
