SK Customs®, the country’s only series-driven, limited-edition custom firearms manufacturer, is proud to present “Venustiano Carranza,” the second installment of the historic Mexican series “La Revolución.” This limited edition design of the Colt 1911 Full Size Government Model chambered 38 Super pays homage to the rich history of the Mexican Revolution.
“After 7 years of civil unrest, Carranza provided much-needed hope to the Mexican Revolution,” said Simon Khiabani, owner and founder of SK Customs. “This limited-edition production follows the first firearm in the series, “Pancho Villa,” and represents the restoration of land to Native peoples, the separation of church and state, and dramatic economic and educational reforms.”
Carranza, also known as “First Chief,” consolidated power in the capital, leading to a convention in 1916 to revise the liberal constitution. Carranza was elected the first president under the new Mexican Revolutionary Constitution of 1917, serving from 1917 to 1920.
Each Carranza Colt 1911 full-size government model, only 300 in production, features a highly polished royal blue finish with selective 24k gold checks. Each weapon includes an engraved special edition number.
The left side of the firearm shows the “Monument to the Revolution” in Mexico City with a floral scroll from Cannas. A 24k gold illustration of Carranza on horseback, waving as his constituents cheer, is engraved “First Chief of the Constitutionalist Army.” Front slide art shows the Constitutional Army following Carranza into the city center with the words “Paseo De La Reforma” (Paseo de la Reforma) etched in 24k gold.
The right side continues with “REVOLUCIÓN” in 24k gold, the Carranza family coat of arms and a representation of Carranza’s revolutionary title “Mexican Insurgents”.
To complete the firearm, a portrait of Carranza sits at the top of the slide along with the iconic Mexican Eagle of its time. The firearm carries a set of custom Kirinite® grips inlaid with a set of custom 24k gold weight medallions. The MSRP for this unique collectible is $2,900.
