1911's at the SHOT Show

Cabot Guns has some spectacular 1911 pistols on display. I took some pics for you to enjoy.















Their listed prices were special too. $6-$10K.

They definitely upped the state of the art in Damascus slides over what has been available from Caspian Arms. They are into color case hardening too. They also like diagonal front strap checkering. I'll have to try this sometime.

Wow, that's a lot of BLING!

Amazing what can be done to "Ole Slabsides" and a few thousand dollars.

Thanks for the showin' Slo Cat.

I can appreciate Cabot's artistry in craftsmanship but it's beyond what some, like me, desire...different strokes and folks and all.
Thanks for the report and cool pics.
Some of the case coloring is tasteful but it can quickly get "busy" combined with the rest of the pistol enhancements.
Two cents of mine.

Love the grips also, especially the bottom set and the stag(?).
Any of these would make awesome BBQ guns.

It's been a long time since I've seen a reference to BBQ guns. I'll bet not many know what this is.
