HAYMARKET, VA – February 19, 2022 – SK Customs® restores history by launching “The Lost States of America Engravers Series” production line with “The Lost State of Jacinto – Sam Houston” Colt 1911 pistols engraved in 24kt gold.
An important battle of the Texas Revolution, the Battle of San Jacinto took place in 1836 in present-day Harris County, Texas. General Sam Houston led the Texian Army against General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna’s Mexican Army in a critical victory. The battle lasted only eighteen minutes and changed the world.
In the end, the United States would gain not only Texas, but also New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona, California, Utah and parts of Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, and Wyoming. As a result of the Battle of San Jacinto, nearly a third of what is now the United States of America changed ownership. It is one of the most decisive and consequential battles in the history of the United States and indeed the Western world.
“We commemorate General Sam Houston and the Texian Army for avenging the Alamo and Goliad by launching this very exclusive limited edition of only 200 full size government model Colt 1911 pistols chambered in .45acp,” said Simon Khiabani, owner and founder of SK Customs. “Each pistol includes a special engraved edition number and will be accompanied with a beautiful antique silver commemorative challenge coin.”
Details on each side of the gun include a beautiful custom scroll pattern which flows to the top of the slide. On the left side of the gun, SK Customs has engraved the iconic quote by General Sam Houston, “Texas has yet to learn submission to any oppression, come from what source it may.”
On the right side is the iconic quote used when the Texian Army charged into battle shouting, “Remember the Alamo, Remember Goliad!”
The top of the slide provides a portrait of General Sam Houston in front of the Monument of San Jacinto, while the rear of the slide is engraved with “The State of Texas” seal and “The Lost State of Jacinto.”
“The grips are made of Genuine Mesquite Burl native to Texas and to enrich the history of this production, both the grips and challenge coins were manufactured and sourced directly from our partners in the Lone Star State making this production even more special,” said Khiabani.
