Enfield “D Day” Operation Overlord Limited Edition Colt 1911 Style CO2 Air Pistol

Operation Overlord. The Longest Day. The Normandy Invasion. It was a day unlike any the world had ever known – or will know again. Time has not dimmed the memories of June 6, 1944. The triumph of “The Longest Day” and the deeds of those brave men are deeply etched in history.

On that day, allies forces led the way in one of the most significant events in the history of warfare – the D-Day invasion. This was the greatest airborne-amphibious operation ever staged. Its scale hailed as “majestic” by Winston Churchill – 5,000 ships, together with 11,000 other craft, supported by over 11,000 aircraft hurled almost a quarter of a million men against Hitler’s vaunted “Fortress Europe”. By the end of the day on June 6, 1944, the combined forces of Americans, British, Canadian, and other Allies had established a foothold on the European mainland, bringing about the beginning of the end of Nazism’s tyrannical hold. Operation Overlord was the codename for the battle of Normandy, the allied operation that launched the successful invasion of German occupied Western Europe during World War 2.

To celebrate D Day Enfield Sports has released a limited edition of 250 air pistols to commerate this historical event.
