    "“We wanted to raise the bar again,” says Cabot founder and President Rob Bianchin, “The pistol set will be a modern work of functional art and the ultimate set of luxury guns.” The out-of-this-world pistol set consists of two precision manufactured guns. The twin right and left handed 1911 style semi-automatic 45’s tentatively to be called The Big Bang Pistol Set. Cabot previously introduced pistol grips constructed from meteorite, but the idea of constructing a complete set of guns from meteor is unprecedented."


    I wish I was a rich man. :eek:

    That would be AMAZING to have a 4-billion year old 1911!

    4 billion years old? Should be C&R eligible then, right?

    You already do, Stomper - that is, if you believe in evolution. The elements in your gun are ~12 billion years old. They've just been reformed and recrystallized many times since.
    It takes the energy of a supernova to form the heavier elements.

    I hate to bring you down to earth.

    But you and I are made of star dust that's billions of years old.

    And while I cant speak for you.
    I'm basically worthless.:D

    I can't tell if the story is about a new one, but they've already done a meteorite version before - $12,500 and, sorry folks, already sold:

    They do have another model available - in this case the grips are not meteorite, but rather mammoth's tooth - only $11,950 and still available - jump on it now:

    That ones just the grip, this new one is ALL meteorite. Evidently someone already offered 250k , the company expects it to sell for over half a million.

    That is crazy. No doubt they will get everything they want for it. I'm just happy to have a functional 1911 under $1,000.

    Well……..I can't believe that a standard nickel-iron meteorite would make a shootable 1911 worth a hill of beans. I believe that you would have to blend, add, or whatever good steel into the mix to get a decent shootable pistol.

    You could buy a mini-gun and enough ammo to keep you entertained for several days :D
