A 1911 fit for an Aztec
This full-sized stainless Government Model 1911A1 is chambered in .38 Super and features a beautifully intricate Aztec theme based upon the jaguar.
“The Aztecs regarded the jaguar as the bravest of beasts, and the proud ‘ruler of the animal world.’ The Jaguar was a favorite symbol in Aztec representations of war. In Aztec mythology and astrology, the jaguar also played an important role. Aztec kings, like their Classic Maya predecessors, used the jaguar to enhance their social status. As the jaguar was lord of animals, so an Aztec emperor was the ruler of men. Aztec emperors wore jaguar clothing into battle and sat in judgment on a throne. Jaguar Warriors were members of the elite Aztec military special forces.”
Sold through Talo, these limited edition Colt are a full sized 80-series stainless government in .38 Super caliber. The slide is first polished and then deeply embellished with Aztec themes of the jaguar, rulers, and high priests. The left rear slide panel features a gold rampant Colt.
The gray pearlite grips pick up the Aztec theme along with a gold rampant Colt medallion. The Jaguar pistols have special factory issued serial numbers AJW001-AJW300.
As an aside, .38 Super is the highest caliber handgun round availible (legally) to civilians in Mexico.
