Now, these feelings about you – as well as your pride in the uniquely American Right to Keep and Bear Arms – are embodied in a beautiful, firing Colt® .45 pistol, custom finished in a limited edition of only 100 for your Home State.

Yes, now The American Historical Foundation brings you and only 99 others in your Home State this extremely limited opportunity. In the field of arms collecting this is a “first” – the world’s first limited edition Colt® Government Model® .45 Pistol issued by The American Historical Foundation to honor each of America’s Home States. This is destined to be a collector classic – and a cherished family heirloom, because it bespeaks your personal background – today and for generations to come.

Firearms produced by Colt Firearms have played a prominent role in the history of America, and the classic firearms produced by Colt Firearms have been a favorite of firearms enthusiasts and collectors for generations.
Fires .45 ACP
This is a firing limited edition, chambered in .45 ACP, with a seven-round capacity magazine. Each is engraved with its Limited Edition Registry Number between 001 and 100, with the two-letter prefix for your state (e.g., CA001). Accompanying it is a Certificate of Authenticity which confirms the Registry Number, the strict edition limit and the purity of the 24-Karat Gold plating.
Appropriately, each is custom finished and embellished by the talented craftsmen of The American Historical Foundation, with special features. These include:
• Boldly etched and plated with 24-Karat Gold across the slide are:
– The name of your Home State.
– The motto of your Home State.
– The date of statehood of your Home State.
– Your Home State silhouette, with your capital city denoted with a star.
– A background of classic American gun scrolls, on both sides of the slide.
– The edition limit “One of 100” is embannered with scrolls across the reverse of the slide, with full scroll coverage.
• Nine components are richly plated with 24-Karat Gold to Jewelers Grade-Heavy thickness, for lasting beauty and value: trigger, hammer, magazine release, thumb safety, slide stop and four grip screws.
• Custom finished to museum quality, all steel surfaces are mirror polished by our experienced gun polishers and custom blued to the highest gloss-black finish.
• A custom, fired-enamel cloisonné forms the focal point of the checkered grip, featuring the Seal of your Home State.
