This Custom Handgun is Made From a 4.5 Billion-Year-Old Meteorite and Damascus Steel
The outrageously over-the-top 1911 pistol is unlike any other firearm on earth.
Cabot is renowned as a luxury gunmaker that is obsessed with precision and craftsmanship, often using unique and rare materials in bringing their truly outrageous designs to life. Their latest collectible gun is the Stellar Fusion 1911 pistol that just might be a crowning achievement for the company.
Similar to their incredible Big Bang Pistol Set, the Stellar Fusion also uses material from the 4.5 billion-year-old Gibeon Meteorite. However, setting the Stellar Fusion 1911 pistol apart from its Big Bang counterpart, are even more rare materials, including rare Damascus steel and a mysterious desert glass that was scooped up by Cabot’s material sourcer.
That glass, a showpiece in the Stellar Fusion, was a scientific mystery until recently when iridium and osmium banding within the glass confirmed that it, like the Gibeon Meteorite, came from space. It’s the same super rare glass that adorned King Tut’s mummified remains in a necklace buried with the Egyptian Pharaoh. The barrel was plated in 24 carat gold, which only adds to the gun’s aesthetic appeal.
The end result is literally a stellar fusion, bringing together these extra-terrestrial materials to create a one-of-a-kind 1911 Colt .45 pistol.
Cabot isn’t listing any pricing for this piece – you’d have to contact them directly for a personalized quote – but the Big Bang Pistols went for $4.5 million and Cabot’s equally impressive Platinum Mamba knife fetched $150,000 if that helps contextualize this one-of-a-kind weapon packing a seven-figure price tag.
