CABOT Gun Of The Month – 12 Limited Edition 1911 Pistols For Each Month of 2020

    CABOT Gun Of The Month

    Cabot Guns has announced that for 2020 they are launching a special project called Gun of the Month. The idea behind this program is to release a custom 1911 every month of the next year. These will be limited edition guns with only 20 of each month gun to be made. Each of the dozen Gun Of The Month 1911s is different from others in terms of used materials and finishes, sizes and configurations, small design details and calibers. Let’s take a look at all 12 guns of this 2020 collection and see how the company describes them.

    January – The Demon GT

    1 - CABOT Gun Of The Month - January - The Demon GT

    2 - CABOT Gun Of The Month - February - The Son of Drako

    Our February offering is a Commander size version of our full-size dragon inspired Drako Garra 1911 but distinctively refined with our Black Ice  Diamond-Like-Carbon finish.  All black with hand polished flats, the Son of Drako will be a menacing addition to your collection.  Other refinements include a gold bead front sight, Dante swooping style rear sight and Ebony Fibonacci grips.

    April – Case Color 1911

    4 - CABOT Gun Of The Month - April - Case Color 1911

    Our April delivery is a distinctive classic Color Case Hardened pistol. Beautiful, yet durable, color case hardening has been prized by collectors for over a century. Adding contrast this beauty are high polished stainless small parts including the safety controls and barrel. Grips for the Color Case 1911 offering are crafted from American Holly, an American indigenous hardwood.

    Caliber: .45acp

    May – Prospector ICON

    5 - CABOT Gun Of The Month - May - Prospector ICON

    The ICON is a perfect representation of modern clean minimalism design applied to the 1911 platform.  The Prospector features a Black Ice DLC finish, polished TiN Small Parts and a gold bead front sight adding a glint of luxury.  Crafted entirely from stainless steel, including the grips, the Prospector chambered in .45acp is the flattest shooting 1911 you can ever imagine.

    Caliber: .45acp

    June – Belligerent Gentleman

    6 - CABOT Gun Of The Month - June - Belligerent Gentleman

    Our Gentleman’s Carry 1911 is one of our most popular models, but some say its too refined.   We can’t help our nature towards the refinement of the 1911 but here we present a LOUD variant for the cad in all of us.  The Belligerent Gentleman with a ported barrel and slide ensures everyone at the range knows that you’re the boss.  Designed for the not so meek shooter, the Belligerent Gentleman is the equivalent of driving a car without a muffler but with the added shooting benefit of reducing recoil flip. Constructed from a block of stainless steel and featuring a hand polished Gold TiN barrel and trigger along with midnight black glossy ebony wood grips.

    Caliber: .45acp

    July – Damascus Tornado

    7 - CABOT Gun Of The Month - July - Damascus Tornado

    When it comes to making a pistol from Damascus, our unmatched experience in machining and finishing is in a class of one. The July 2020 offering features a stunningly intense patterned Damascus stainless steel upper containing a whirlwind of tight winding layers of steel reminiscent of a Tornado. A sign of wealth since biblical times, Damascus steel embodies both strength and beauty. Adding distinction to this offering are stainless steel skeletonized grips inspired by a bird’s nest. Utterly unique, utterly Cabot, utterly collectible.

    Caliber: .45acp

    August – Rhone

    8 - CABOT Gun Of The Month - August - Rhone

    You’ve never seen a bull barrel Cabot 1911 until now. Designed by Cabot Master Gunsmith Rob Schauland, Rhone is the carry gun of your dreams. Both tool and art, our August offering features a bull barrel design with tight carry cuts, a tritium front sight, our ACW Ledge rear sight and a flat serrated trigger. Our in-house frame has been augmented to allow for a higher undercut under the trigger guard providing a lower bore-axis assisting in less felt recoil.

    Caliber: 9mm

    September – Rebellion VC

    9 - CABOT Gun Of The Month - September - Rebellion VC

    Based on a yet to be released Cabot Model (codename Rebellion) this gun incorporates the most significant mechanical innovation in the 100-year plus history of John Browning’s iconic design. We can now share with you that we reimagined and redesigned the extraction system that will take the reliability of the 1911 platform into a new era. This limited Rebellion uses a stainless steel frame and will feature the popular Cabot Vintage Classic Finish.

    Caliber: 9mm

    October – Valley of Darkness

    10 - CABOT Gun Of The Month - October - Valley of Darkness

    Valley of Darkness will be the first time Cabot Guns has collaborated with the talent of Dark Alliance Customs to produce a truly unique engraved pistol.  The artwork, depth, detail and finish will be something never seen before on a 1911.

    Caliber: .45acp

    November – Cabot Safari

    11 - CABOT Gun Of The Month - November - Cabot Safari

    When hunting big game, you want a big gun.  The Cabot Safari is a full size 10mm 1911 with integrated Damascus Steel Barrel compensator to help with the extra kick of the powerful round. In order to keep your hits on target, the Cabot Safari also comes with a Trijicon SRO Red Dot sight and integrated Frame Rail and Extended Magwell/Mainspring Housing.

    Caliber: 10mm

    December – NERO Damascus

    12 - CABOT Gun Of The Month - December - NERO Damascus

    Last but not least, the NERO Damascus merges beauty and function – and all in a Commander size package – for the ultimate in Damascus steel tactical style 1911.

    Caliber: 9mm

    Judging by how the company describes the October gun, Valley of Darkness, and by the fact that they keep its appearance secret, I suspect it is something really extraordinary even compared to already extraordinary 1911s of Gun Of The Month collection. We’ll be following the Cabot Guns news to tell you about this pistol as soon as it is released. Stay tuned!
