OVERVIEW: Cold Dead Hands 1911

Cold Dead Hands 1911

For many American gun owners, the statement “from my cold, dead hands” sums up their sentiment about the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. No matter what unconstitutional laws are passed in our nation, the gun grabbers can have our guns when they pry them from our cold, dead hands! Auto-Ordnance’s “Cold Dead Hands 1911” boldly issues that challenge, in American made steel. This latest patriotic commemorative pistol, warns all tyrants to tread on American liberty at their peril. Freedom loving patriots have always been prepared to oppose tyranny with the ferocity of a poisonous snake. 

The Cold Dead Hands 1911 features a coiled serpent and skull engraved on its aluminum grips, with the statement “Pry it From My Cold Dead Hands”. “Shall not be infringed” is engraved on the left side of the slide, and “76” is circled with thirteen stars on the right. 

The Cold Dead Hands 1911 starts as an Auto-Ordnance Stainless a 5” Auto-Ordnance Stainless 1911, chambered in .45 ACP. Its slide and frame are stainless steel, with TruGlo® day sights, full length guide rod, high sweep beavertail, skeletonized trigger, checkered front strap, serrated and ported slide, with a match grade barrel. The finish is a custom Cerakote mix of Light Sand and Plum Brown, completed with a weathered effect. It is made entirely in the United States. One seven round magazine is included.

Each custom firearm is a unique work of art containing hand created content.  As a result, no two firearms are exactly alike, and color may slightly vary between individual pieces.  Final products may not exactly match depictions in advertisements.
