The Emperor Colt 1911 GunBroker Exclusive from SK Customs Auctions
The Emperor” is a limited edition production run of only 200 Full Size Government Model Colt 1911 chambered in 38 Super. Each pistol includes a special engraved edition number and is accompanied with a replica reproduction of Mexico’s Declaration of Independence.
This historically significant war was fought for 11 years and 11 days. It ended more than 200 years ago on September 27th, 1821, when Agustín De Iturbide, a Commanding General and Conservative Politian, led Ejército Trigarante or Ejército de las Tres Garantías (Translation: The Army of the Three Guarantees) in vanquishing the Spanish from ruling over the Mexican native lands. On September 28th, 1821, Iturbide was first to sign Mexico’s Declaration of Independence. That same year he was proclaimed the First President of the Regency, and shortly after he was declared the First Emperor of Mexico.
