SK Customs announced its annual Gun of the Year – limited-edition model, the Lady of Guadalupe, chambered in .38 Super.
The Lady of Guadalupe is an elevated take on the Colt 1911, celebrating the Virgin Mary’s appearance to Juan Diego in 1531. Aside from the religious connotations, the gun’s imagery celebrates her historical significance during the Mexican War of Independence and the Great Revolution of 1910.
This pistol features a royal blue polished finish that reflects the aura of the Virgin Mary’s apparitions. Detailed illustrations on the slide depict the roses the Virgin Mary gave to Juan Diego, while the rear panels present St. Juan Diego against the Crescent moon. Its slide sports an illustration of Our Lady of Guadalupe and an angel.
The Colt 1911 is topped off with gold stars and an individual special edition number in 24-karat gold.
Owner and founder of SK Customs, Simon Khiabani, said the Lady of Guadalupe continues to uphold SK’s commitment to craftsmanship.
“SK Customs is dedicated to creating firearms that not only exemplify exceptional quality but also honor cultural and historical milestones,” said Khiabani. “The limited-edition Lady of Guadalupe Colt 1911 is a testament to our commitment to excellence and reverence for the Virgin Mary’s apparitions.”
This collector’s item is limited to 300 pieces and is priced at $2,500.
