SK Customs is well known for producing highly stylized and customized handguns generally honoring or venerating a particular group of people or individuals who have had a great impact on history. Their latest project is the new Limited Edition Purple Heart Commemorative Colt 1911 which aims to give back to those who put their bodies on the line for our nation. The new Commemorative Colt 1911 will be a very limited run of just 240 pistols and will display a custom medallion of the modern-day Purple Heart Medal which is awarded to those who have sustained injuries in the line of duty.
