Auto Ordnance SQUADRON GBB Gas 6mm 17BBs 1J / C12

Sale price €242,10

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”).
