Matt from Evike takes a look at the Cybergun Auto-Ordnance Custom 1911 Series and it’s features.
As part of Auto-Ordnances ongoing series of custom 1911s paying tribute to the men and women who supported Americas drive towards victory in World War II, we are proud to introduce the Fly Girls 1911. This custom pistol honors the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs), who played a vital role in the war effort. Over 1000 women served as pilots during WWII, taking on vital roles operating aircraft in non-combat positions so their male counterparts could directly engage the enemy. These women aviators were pioneers in the profession, facing all of the risks and challenges shared by pilots of the time period. By wars end, 38 had given their lives in service to their country.
Auto-Ordnance is proud to honor the dedication and sacrifice of the WASPs with this beautiful engraved custom 1911 pistol! The right side features the diamond shaped badge of the Womens Air Corps; its design is patterned after Greek goddess Athenas shield. Nearby are the years of WASP service, 1941-47, and the slogan Pistol Packin Mama. Engraved on the left side is the title Original Fly Girls, and the cartoon gremlin Fifinella, a design by Walt Disney, used as the official WASP mascot during WWII. The Army Air Corps roundel is on both sides of the slide.
In collaboration with Auto-Ordnance, Cybergun accurately recreates this masterpiece of a firearm in Airsoft form. The fighter-like details are laser cut deep into the slide and frame itself to make them really stand out over standard surface engraving. Each pistol is weathered to to give the gun a nice combat hardened, worn-in appearance that really give the gun character. Finishing off the fine level of detail are the beautiful real wood grips which are precision laser cut with diamond texturing and U.S. insignia.
