“Meteor Gun”

In a December 16, 2015 press release, Cabot Guns announced that two mirror-image fully-functional guns would be constructed from a 35 kg portion of the Gibeon meteor. The company has described the 1911-style pistols as as a “modern work of functional art and the ultimate set of luxury guns.” The working name for right and left handed 45s is “The Big Bang Pistol Set.”

A collector has already offered $250,000 for the guns, but Cabot has said the two guns could fetch as much as $1,000,000 at auction. They are expected to be unveiled at the NRA Convention in May 2016.

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT. I alluded to this a while back but today we are making if official. METEOR GUNS. We are building a mirror image set of pistols from this 4.5 billion year old section of the Gibeon meteorite. It will consist of a set of two fully functional guns which will be a modern work of art. The construction of each component has been a science experiment but we are confident they will be fully completed. We plan to debut them at the NRA Convention in May and we’ll have some sample components on display at SHOT. We’ll share more about this exciting project here on IG. Please tag a friend. The lead time on the next set is another 4.5 billion years. #meteorguns #meteor  #cabotguns #1911 #guns #gunsofinstagram #gunsdaily #firearms #handgun #gunart #gunporn#dupontregistry #luxurylife #1911a1 #pictureoftheday #dreamgun #madeintheusa #madeinamerica #pewpewlife #johnmosesbrowning #cabotgun

Cabot noted that “Meteorite is hardly an optimum material for firearms,” thus several “technical matters” had to be addressed using “advanced aerospace techniques.”

Dating to an age of 4.5 billion years, the Gibeon metor was discovered in Africa in the 1830s, although it is believed to have fallen in the region in prehistoric times.

This is not the first time the Gibeon metor has been used in commercial items. Rolex, for example, has used small pieces of it in the past.
