    Beautiful gun!

    Especially since it’s a 1911. ;D

    Dont take this the wrong way but since when did the “All American gun company” (Colt) making the “All American gun” (1911) get reduced to commemorating NON-Americans. Ya he is a national hero of Mexico but come on, why not use an American hero like Audie Murphy, or George Washington. I just fail to understand the logic of Colt here. Nothing against Mexico (kind of a cool country) but seriously, are gun sales so slow that Colt is reduced to this? Just sounds like something a 2 bit scam artist would sell.

    That said it looks amazing, but can Mexicans in Mexico buy them. Or are they limited to US sales? Very good looking gun though.

      22lr, I don’t know much about Mexico history, but I think the pistol is more a celebration of independence and democracy than of an Mexican hero.

    Mexico IS a North American country,Take a look at a globe.

    I hear that. Any information is folks south of the border will have access to them. Something tells me they wont which would be sad seeing as how its a gun that commemorates one of their national heros. I know id be ticked is someone came out with a gun for Audie Murphy and only sold it in Mexico. But thats just me, LOL. Nice looking piece though.

    I think is legal in Mexico. Military calibers are not allowed, and so .38 Super is popular.

    Ok thanks.

    sorry to tell you this but the mexican mafia is a great market for this type of special edition more expensive guns. colt is not that dumb after all…

  • p8-sinaloa

    I agree with Mexican. i’m going to get a pair of these just for the name it commemorates. after all we Mexicans like shooting stuff with style. not to mention brutal force
