Pair of AWC Centurions.

These rare, über cool, silenced, .45ACP bolt-action carbines were built by AWC for special operations forces as a modern take on the Delisle Commando Carbine of WWII. They were built in relatively small numbers using an action sourced from Pauza specialties. They used a free floating, non-ported 7” barrel encased in a 1-5/8” diameter tube with a small number of simple, coined baffles. Feeding was via a Pachmayr 1911 magazine. The trigger module was sourced commercially from Timney. The model on the bottom was owned and improved by Tim Bixler of S.C.R.C.. His enhancements included a support for the muzzle, as well as a more efficient baffle stack.
