If I’d won the Powerball, I’d have to splurge on this– Cabot Guns makes a 1911 out of meteorite.
Parts of the 4.5 billion-year-old Gibeon meteorite that landed in sub-Saharan Africa in prehistoric times have been transformed into guns and pistol grips by Cabot Guns.
Cabot will reveal its meteorite-enhanced guns for the first time next week at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas. The Big Bang pistol set will ultimately be shown to the public in May. A relatively new company at about five years old, Cabot Guns has been establishing a reputation for luxury weapons. Its focus is on crafting 1911-style pistols.
And I’d carry it and shoot it too. Because the 1911 is a fighting gun, not a show gun. But since I didn’t win the Powerball, I’ll have to be content with admiring from afar.
