'Big Bang' 1911

This probably qualifies more as 'art'; though they say its functional:

https://cabotguns.com/oak-collection...ng-pistol-set/

Machined from a chunk of meteorite:



It does have a certain character.
The price tag is a cosmic too.

HMMM, NICE but not that nice for the price...I'd rather have a Sammy Davis Jr. owned 1911 which if I recall correctly one was turned in with a gun buy back program in CA. some years ago..which goes to show that people don't know the worth of much in general.

I was at one of the 1911 sites and some internet idiot mouth was going on about his $2,000 carry gun. The next idiot had a $3000, then a $5000 carry gun, then a $6,000 carry gun and his gunsmith said if he had to use it and lose it he would put him at the top of the list for another, $10,000 carry gun, $15,000 carry gun. When I saw "Cabot carry gun" I stopped looking, I was too busy laughing to read a thing. I said if you actually have to use it, you will never get it back, even if you win the case, or if you do, it will be shoot to hell and rusted into a solid lump. The losers just went nutz! "Well what do you want us to carry?! Huh?! Huh?! Huh?!" Carry what you like, just know you will not get it back.

That is a neat gun, does it work any better than any other 1911?

I'm not a 1911 fan, but that is damned slick. And so is that price tag. The notion that the metal contained therein originated from a place unknown outside our usual, familiar world is certainly alluring.

When you have your Cabot phone consultation for that nice pistol build, the starting price point is $10,000 to $15,000 - lol.

The guy that ponies up $4.5M for the Big Bang Set will surely rule the earth...and the innerwebs!

If I had the $$ to get Cabot 1911s I would get the mirrored pair (and just use the ambi mags they sell).

Guns like that do absolutely nothing for me. Kind-of akin to a gold plated AK or Desert Eagle. Hard pass for me at any price.

In Georgia if it's ruled a good shoot your firearm is returned. If not it is sold to an LGS after case is dispensed and your wife can buy it back.
