Auto Ordnance 1911 Squadron Gas Blowback Pistol (Cybergun – By Armorer Works)
This series of three replicas is inspired by the 1911 customs created by Auto Ordnance to commemorate World War II. The SQUADRON refers to the volunteer pilots who fought during World War II in the 1st American Volunteer Group. The squadron’s nickname comes from a painting first done by Eric Shilling, one of the pilots, on the nose of his aircraft depicting a gaping shark’s mouth. It was inspired by the paintings done on the Messerschmitt Bf 110 by the pilots of the Luftwaffe’s Haifischgruppe (“Shark Group”).

Auto-Ordnance Corporation was created in 1916 by retired US Army colonel John T. Thompson, to make the SMG he designed and was named after him.
Making various weapons and producing parts for other gunsmiths, Auto-Ordnance grew well during the 30’s and 40’s. After World War II, the company kept producing Thompson SMGs for the US armed forces and police departments, as well as for the civilian market, including collectors ; in both full and semi auto.
In 1996, Auto-Ordnance was bought by Kahr Arms. It galvanized the company, who now only produces semi automatic Thompson SMGs, as well as M1 carbines and commemorative M1911 clones.
