Unique to the supremely elegant Damascus steel slide is a sculptural texture which is as much an aesthetic addition as it is a deliberate consideration of combining form and function. Cabot has developed a super-etching technique, which when applied to the Damascus Ladder Deluxe’s slide turns the entire top-half of the pistol into a tactile surface, providing a true and sure hold while racking a round into battery and running the gun.
Designed in-house by Cabot’s very own Mastersmith Rob Schauland, a custom-made extended rear sight complements our unique reverse dovetail at the slide’s forward end. The Damascus Ladder Deluxe’s extra-long sight radius, running the entire length of the slide, assures the shooter precision-grade aiming and rock-solid reliability.
There are three primary interfaces between shooter and weapon; the front and rear straps and the surface of the trigger itself. Attention to subtly in these areas is one of the defining characteristics of a Cabot Gun. The straps of the Damascus Ladder Deluxe each feature our 24 line-per-inch Rhombus Checkering. The flat-faced all-business trigger has been hand-serrated to ensure a steady and repeatable pull. Coupled together, these features are what inspires the inexplicable confidence one feels as this pistol comes on target.
Available standard with Sonoran Desert Ironwood grips.
