Armorer Works (also known as AW Custom) are a high quality manufacturer renowned for their innovation and setting a brand-new benchmark for airsoft.
After 100 years of service, the legendary John Browning’s self-loading semi-automatic handgun design is perhaps the most popular sidearm amongst Military, Law Enforcement, and Civilian circles. There is great reason the 1911 is the longest running Military sidearm in the world; even today some of Americas most elite fighting units still carry the reliable 1911 by their side. Its simple design made the sidearm a really rugged and dependable weapon. The success of the weapon has prompted numerous guns manufacturers to utilise features from the 1911 design and to this day the 1911 is still a benchmark when it comes to pistols.
What is Molon Labe?
Molon Labe meaning “come and take it” is a classical expression of defiance. According to Herodotus, when the Persian armies demanded that the Greeks surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae, King Leonidas I responded with this phrase. Molon labe has been repeated by many later generals and warriors in order to express an army’s or nation’s determination not to surrender. The motto ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ is on the emblem of the Greek First Army Corps and the Cypriot Second Infantry Division, and is also the motto of United States Special Operations Command Central (SOCCENT). The expression “Come and take it” was a slogan in the Texas Revolution.
The Armorer Works “MOLON LABE” features a gorgeous imitation patina surface and weathering to replicate the battle scarred look of a vintage service weapon that has been through the wars. The traditional expression of defiance ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ and kill tallies are boldly sculpted into the slide to show surrender is not a choice and facing this weapon will mean certain doom!
