FORT WAYNE, Indiana, Jan. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Cabot Guns, a leading supplier of custom pistols of 1911, today announced the release of its latest One-of-a-Kind (OAK) pistol. : the Cabot Moonshot. the Moonshot is built on the long-standing 1911 platform, designed and manufactured by John Moses Browning and adopted by the United States Army on March 29, 1911.
Thanks to the careful placement of lunar meteorite, small diamonds, rubies, sapphires and gold inlays, the Moonshot provides a dynamic view of our solar system, from the perspective of the lunar surface. These and other precious materials ignite the imagination as they represent planets and stars running along their celestial paths.
Cabot Founder and CEO Rob Bianchin notes: “With the Moonshot, we pushed the boundaries of the idea of mechanical art in the form of a pistol. The unique use of rare lunar meteorites and extraterrestrial materials has never been employed in this way. It is a symbol of both enduring American design and America’s galactic-scale accomplishments. “
The black space slide provides the perfect backdrop for planetary orbits, shooting stars and meteorites, rendered by the expert touch of master engraver FEGA Lee Griffiths. The astronauts and the Apollo Lunar Module featured on the handles were cut from steel plates, sculpted, and then carefully welded in place. “From an engraver’s perspective, it was an absolutely delightful mind-blowing challenge to unite heaven and earth. The creation process was a personal and unique way of experiencing a proxy moon landing, ”says Griffiths.
For all the design, engineering and know-how used to create the Moonshot, the Cabot team knew that the case in which the pistol lay had to be out of this world as well. Benoît Miniou, CEO of Ateliers Victor, the Parisian design house, remembers the first time Bianchin approached him about the Moonshot: “I loved it! I immediately imagined the unique space trunk that one would imagine to enhance this superb pistol.” Miniou goes on to describe the end result of hundreds of hours of design, testing and creation over the next two years: “This is a unique masterpiece formed from a solid block of aluminum. space quality, with redesigned and remodeled screws like SpaceX capsules, a titanium solar system grid that features moving planets, which lock and unlock access to the pistol with a secret astronomical code, and a hieroglyphic formula engraved with the laser enchanting the case and protecting the Moonshot 1911. “
Cabot Guns is proud to announce the Moonshot, an astonishing blend of engineering and artistry that represents a unique link between the most iconic firearm on the planet, the pistol of 1911, and the pinnacle of engineering and scientific achievement: the moon landing. And finally, Cabot will hit an NFT of Moonshot as the company embarks on the metaverse to launch a digital collection of Cabot 1911 on the blockchain.
