The right side also features a battle scene, the dates of the operation, Iwo Jima, and an advancing American flag. The grip depicts an eagle and anchor. The finish is a Cerakote OD Green with distressed Copper color. Each Iwo Jima 1911 starts as an all steel, Auto-Ordnance GI model 1911, made entirely in the United States. The caliber is .45 ACP, with a 5 barrel, and one seven round magazine.
