    Just watched a “Gun Stories” episode about the 2 1911’s Cabot made out meterorite. Very cool.

    $4,000,000 for the pair. That’s a lot of money. BUT pretty cool for something REALLY out of this world.

    I wonder if the NRA would insure them under the standard membership policy.

    I was afraid I was going to see the 3 breasted midget from Mars

    Cabot always has their small display booth at the annual NRA convention. They usually have maybe, half a dozen unique/ interesting 1911s they’ve made, on display there. But they haven’t had the meteorite guns “on tour” for several years. Think one of the Cabot guys told me, they’re kept locked up in some kind of climate controlled container/safe.

    [ETA: NRA convention at Indianapolis, April 25 - 28].

    Cabot, the Maybach of 1911's. I guess there is a market or they would be bankrupt as the CEO said in the piece.

    Considering who builds 'em, I'd say they would hold up to hard use as well or better than the best of those.

    IMHO my opinion they are a better value and a better product to be blunt. Have owned or own (Brown was so bad fixed it gave it to my SIL and it was the flagship model) all of them now just Cabot's and Nighthawk Customs for my semi custom builds.
