General Officers' Pistol

Presented by the NRA National Firearms Museum

During World War II, the United States Army added a new gun to its inventory that became known as the General Officers' Pistol. The guns were issued to anyone making flag rank — one star to five stars — and were the only firearm issued to you as a soldier in the U.S. Army that you got to take with you when you retired. Thanks to the generosity of Horace Greeley IV, 17 of these very unique and highly sought after collectible arm can be seen at the NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia.

These pistols were issued to anyone in the U.S. Army making flag rank — one star to five stars.
