Cabot Guns has released the remake of their SOB “Son of Relic” pistol that was introduced last year. One of the most unique features of SOB pistols is the incredibly beautiful sepia color of the finish that makes them look like guns from a vintage photo. Each of the two grip options of SOB 2.0 pistol, Hawaiian mango wood or mammoth ivory, also gives this gun a different but equally fascinating appearance.
Here is what Cabot Guns said about the SOB 2.0 in their press release:
Ask most people about sequels and they’ll always say, “Not as good as the first.” When Cabot Guns introduced the SOB “Son of Relic” the limited 10-unit production 1911, with its sepia-toned acid etching, became an instant classic. Never one to rest on our laurels, we proudly introduce what may be the best sequel ever: SOB 2.0.
SOB 2.0 features the same innovative acid-etched finish as Son of Relic. The sepia tones remain, as does the hand-engraved labyrinthine detail, the hallmark of FEGA Master Engraver Otto Carter.
Our obsessive commitment to excellence, paired with masterful handiwork, have once again combined to create an exclusive, heirloom-quality 1911. Chambered in .45 ACP and available as a limited production of only twenty pistols, this is one SOB that will make its own history—and be treasured for generations to come.
This pistol is not the first collaboration of Cabot Guns and Otto Carter. Besides the two versions of SOB pistols, this master is also the author of engravings on many other Cabot pistols such as The Sixth Commandment, The Legend of Sacromonte, Pandemonium, and Le Nouveau.
The frames and slides of SOB 2.0 pistol are machined of solid blocks of 416 stainless steel. The 5″ stainless steel match grade barrels are hand fitted, have flush-cut crowns, and polished feed ramps. The slides feature top serrations, lowered and flared ejection ports, and come fitted with Cabot reverse dovetail white dot front sights and ledge rear sights designed by Cabot/ACW Master Gunsmith Rob Schauland. The front straps and mainspring housings are checkered with the 24 TPI Rhombus checkering pattern. The Cabot Tri-Star trigger has a pull weight of 3.5-4 lbs.
The price of this brand new relic is $7,995. The 20 SOB 2.0 pistols will be made with consecutive serial numbers (SOB2-1 through SOB2-20) and shipped during 2020 and 2021. The lead times and serial numbers will be determined on a first-come, first-served basis.
