In case you haven’t noticed, Kahr brand Auto-Ordnance has been on a World War II kick recently. It all started with the “Victory Girls” 1911, a custom model paying tribute to the women who bolstered industry at home during WWII. Next came the “Fly Girls” 1911, which honors the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs) who served in the war. Last month saw the arrival of the “Squadron” 1911, which displays the custom graphics often seen on American fighter planes like the P-40 Warhawk during the war. Now, Auto-Ordnance has unveiled the “Vengeance” M1 carbine.
The Auto-Ordnance Vengeance M1 carbine features wood furniture engraved with images recalling the Dec. 7, 1941 Pearl Harbor attack. One side of the stock features a detailed depiction of the Pearl Harbor attack that kicked off the United States’ involvement in the war. On the other side is a depiction of the B-29 Superfortress Enola Gay, the aircraft responsible for the bombing of Hiroshima, which led to the eventual surrender of the Imperial Japan. The front handguard features an American flag meant to appear damaged in battle.
Chambered in .30 caliber with an 18-inch barrel and overall weight of 5.4 pounds, the Auto-Ordnance Vengeance is described in the press release as a “faithful reproduction of military models.” It boasts all steel components; Parkerized finish; and walnut stocks. It also comes with a 15-round magazine.
“The ‘Vengeance’ rifle gives shooters an opportunity to own a new firearm that is highly accurate, utterly reliable and custom engraved to commemorate the conflict enshrining the M1’s role as a vital part of American Military History,” the press release states.
MSRP on the Auto-Ordnance Vengeance M1 is $1,391. See the specs below.
