SK Guns recently announced the release of a Pascual Orozco-inspired firearm and the third production gun in its historic Mexican “La Revolucion” Series.

Orozco was a natural military leader. In October 1910, he was named Jefe Revolucionario (Revolutionary Leader) for going against the Porfirio Díaz dictatorship. A week after the Mexican Revolutionary war broke out, Orozco had his first victory, against Gen. Juan Navarro in Ciudad Juárez.

Featuring a high polished royal blue finish with selective silver plating, each limited-edition Pascual Orozco Colt 1911 will include a special engraved edition number.

 

To pay tribute to Orozco, SK Customs is introducing a limited-edition production run of only 300 Colt 1911 Full-Size Government Models that are chambered in .38 Super.

Consistent with the previous Pancho Villa and Venustiano Carranza productions, this firearm continues with a depiction of the “Monument to the Revolution.” A cannas lily, native to Mexico, is wrapped around the slide and is accompanied by an illustration of a silver-plated Orozco on horseback to commemorate the victory he secured at the battle of “Cańon de Mal Paso Enero 1911.”

Orozco was infamous for ordering that the uniforms of dead soldiers be sent to President Díaz. His notorious saying, “Ahí te van las hojas, mándame más tamales,” or, “Here are the wrappers, send me more tamales,” is engraved on the frame of this newest production from SK Customs.

This limited-edition Colt 1911 will also include the Orozco family coat of arms, along with a depiction of Mexican revolutionary fighters in Orozco’s camp and a silver-plated ribbon reading “Ciudaded Juárez, Chihuahua.

Retaining many elements of the previous Pancho Villa and Venustiano Carranza production guns, SK Customs’ La Revolución” series continues with this depiction of the “Monument to the Revolution” in Mexico City.

 

Completing the firearm, a portrait of Orozco sits atop the slide. There is a bandolier near the gun’s chamber, just below the iconic Mexican Eagle respective for its era. In addition, the limited-edition Pascual Orozco Colt 1911 firearm wears a set of custom Kirinite grips embedded with a set of custom 24k gold peso medallions.

“Pascual Orozco was a key element to Mexico securing victory in its war for independence,” Simon Khiabani, owner and founder of SK Guns said. “This limited-edition firearm pays tribute to the man who secured key victories in Northern Mexico, notably in the battle for Ciudad Juárez in Chihuahua.”

MSRP of this unique collectible firearm is $3,000. It will begin shipping in April 2024.
