In honor of the brave soldiers who fought their way through the steamy tropical jungles of Guadalcanal from August 1942 to February 1943, Historical Armory, Inc., is proud to present the Guadalcanal Limited Edition. This unique limited edition is available on the M1 Carbine .30 rifle and on the Ruger 1911 (.45 Auto).


Each model features detailed engraving of original artwork to commemorate the Battle of Guadalcanal, codenamed Operation Watchtower. It was the first in a long series of successful Allied offensive operations against the Japanese during World War II. The ferocious battle, which included air, ground, and naval forces from both sides, also marked the beginning of the methodical “island hopping” campaign that halted Japanese imperial expansion in the region and ultimately achieved total victory for Allied forces in the Pacific Theater.
