Legendary firearms manufacturer Cabot Guns brings the galaxy to your fingertips with its Big Bang Pistol Set. It is actually a custom pair of the pistols crafted from a meteorite that is several billion years old. All parts of the guns were crafted from a 4.5-billion year old meteorite that landed in prehistoric times in what is now Gibeon, Namibia. The pistols are fully-functional – and resultant of their National Match barrels, accurate; verified both on the rest and in off-hand shooting. Leaving nothing to chance in terms of functionality, Cabot Guns’ engineers used electron beam technology to meticulously add bimetal support only to the frame/slide rails, hammer, guide rod and extractor of the Big Bang set. – and the pistol’s components, down to the barrel bushing and trigger – are 100% Gibeon meteorite.
Different finishing techniques highlight the diversity of the material from which these weapons are extracted. High polish flats on the grips, natural patterning on the slide and frame (acid etched to accentuate the supernatural texture of the meteors internal structure), and elsewhere intact outer-edges of the meteorite that survived the heat and violence of atmospheric entry – all come together to bring skyward-turned eyes back to earth, to gaze in breathless amazement.
The astronomical price tag seemed like a no-brainer, too — $4.5 million, which makes these heaven-sent hand cannons the most expensive firearms in history. The Cabot Guns’ Big Bang Pistol Set, available now – and never to be made again.
