Embark on a celestial journey with the SETI Custom 1911, an extraordinary creation from Cabot Guns, where the mysteries of the universe blend with unparalleled craftsmanship. This exclusive, one-of-a-kind firearm, chambered in .45 ACP, is a salute to the cosmic quest, featuring a slide crafted from the mesmerizing Eggerling Damascus steel. The intricate wave pattern of the Damascus slide is more than mere metal; it’s a visual echo of distant galaxies and interstellar signals, unique to this singular pistol bearing the custom serial number SETI-1.
At the rear, a 4.5 billion-year-old meteorite forms the sight, connecting the shooter not just to the firearm, but also to the ancient cosmos. This element is not just a functional necessity; it’s a piece of history, encapsulating the timeless allure of the universe.
The SETI’s grips tell a story of their own, meticulously crafted by Cabot from pattern welded Damascus steel. The left grip panel boasts a stylized “X”, a tribute to the enigmatic realms explored in “The X Files”, encapsulating the allure of the unknown. The right grip panel, framed within the same mesmerizing Damascus, features a starry night scene, meticulously designed by artist Lee Griffiths. This side is more than a grip; it’s a gateway to the night sky, a canvas where art meets the artisan’s skill.
The SETI Custom 1911 is not just a firearm; it’s a portal to the stars, a blend of art, myth, and precision engineering. Each element of this pistol, from the ancient meteorite sight to the narrative grips, is a testament to Cabot Guns’ dedication to creating firearms that are not just tools, but legends in their own right.
Enhancing this cosmic ensemble is the SETI’s companion knife, forged in-house by Cabot from the same Eggerling Damascus steel. This exquisite knife mirrors the SETI 1911’s celestial theme, with a design that complements the pistol’s aesthetic, providing a seamless blend of form, function, and artistry.
Housed in a bespoke museum-grade case by Master Casemaker Stephen A. Parker, the SETI Custom 1911 is showcased in a setting worthy of its stature. This exquisite case not only provides a majestic residence for the SETI 1911 but also elevates its enigma, cementing its status as a collector’s masterpiece and a zenith of American gunmaking excellence.
