Revolver Taco Lounge

You often see crazy ornate guns coming out of Mexico, sadly those often displayed are M1911 .38 Supers and AKMs owned by narcotraffickers.

A notable example of a commercial Colt 1911 Aztec Jaguar .38 Super Serial #29 of 300. This one sold for $3,424.99

However, there are many no doubt owned by regular citizens who bend over backward to slice through federal red tape to be able to legally possess firearms. And when you consider you can typically only own one or two guns in your life, the odds you may get them customized are pretty high.

Many Mexican-Americans continue that tradition here in the U.S.

With that, Vice (don’t groan, it is a good short doc) visits with 77-year-old Arturo Rojas Castelan, son of a blacksmith, who balances his time engraving guns and working as a dishwasher at his family’s Mexican restaurant, Revolver Taco Lounge, on Main Street in Dallas’s trendy Deep Ellum district, where he works the afternoon shift.
