Country fans love to hang on to mementos that remind them of their favorite artists. They save concert tickets, wear out concert t-shirts, and stock old vinyls to listen to over and over again. But some fans go above and beyond, and desire rare, collectable items to remember their favorite artists by.
If you’re such a fan, and you love Conway Twitty, then we’ve found a true treasure for you.
America Remembers has a one-of-a-kind collectable item that all of Twitty’s fans should be proud to call their own. This item is an elegant tribute pistol, which features Twitty’s likeness, signature, and logo.
Called the Conway Twitty Tribute Colt .45 Pistol, this exquisite handgun was designed and issued with authorization from Twitty’s family. The America Remembers team worked to craft an item that was “the perfect firearm to honor Conway’s love for America, as well as his proud service to this country as a member of the United States Army.”
Craftsmen paid great attention to detail when working on the design for the tribute pistol. The grips of the gun are done in rosewood with a “double-diamond” checkering pattern. To add some decoration, the grip screws, slide stop, hammer, safety lock, magazine catch, and main spring housing pin are covered in 24-karat gold.

More glittering detail can be found over the majority of the gun, with 24-karat artwork shining against blackened highlights. The artwork features portraits of Twitty, which all show him at different times in his life. The left side has a pair of portraits, with one being from the height of his popularity and another being from his time in the Army. Found front and center is a stylized version of Twitty’s name.
As for the right side of the gun, it proudly displays three portraits of Twitty. One shows him on the grounds of Twitty City, the other is a classic portrait, and the last is one from the early days of his career. The portraits are separated by a replication of Twitty’s signature, which also appears in 24-karat gold. Underneath the signature, a line reads, “The Man, The Music, The Legend.”

To finish it all off, each side features Twitty’s famous “CT” logo near the hammer of the gun.
Adding further to the gun’s value, America Remembers has only made 300 of them available. So if you’re lucky enough to end up with one of them, it means that you will be one of only of 300 people in the world to own such an item. Talk about unique!
