SK Guns has announced the third edition of the Untamed series that features the world’s deadliest predators called “Luchando Tigre.” This latest production in the series combines a native ritual and a deadly predator into one astonishing installment in the Untamed series.

Luchando Tigre
The Luchando Tigre depicts a tiger that is wrapped around the entire slide.


“Luchando Tigre” comes from the native Atsatsilisti ritual in the Mexican state of Guerrero to offer blood to the god Tláloc and the earth in exchange for the rain necessary for a good harvest. Dressed in a tiger personification and equipped with a rope bathed in mezcal, the tribute’s shed blood is the offering required by Tláloc to send the rain. A deadly tiger is depicted wrapping around the slide leaping toward its prey with teeth and claws bared, locked on tearing apart its prey.

Luchando Tigre is a limited-edition product run of only 200 Colt 1911 Full-Size Government Models chambered in 38 Super, featuring a semi-polished stainless finish on the slide and frame flats.

The tiger is covered in 24K gold and black-filled stripes with selective silver-plated eyes, teeth and claws. The Colt logo decorates the rear left panel and the right is engraved with each gun’s unique issued series number.

The pistol comes complete with a set of rare specimen genuine tiger maple wood grips showing off stripes going across the grain resembling a tiger’s coat with 24K gold Colt Rampart inserts.

“This year’s edition of the Untamed Series truly embodies the idea behind this line of custom guns,” Simon Khiabani, owner and founder of SK Guns said. “The tiger symbolism used in the Arsatslisti ritual for rain combined with the danger synonymous with the Bengal tiger that is depicted along the slide showcases the ‘tigris’ subspecies century-old status as one of the most feared predators in the world.”

The Luchando Tigre pistol is priced starting at $2,700 and will begin shipping on Cinco De Mayo (May 5, 2024).
