SK Guns (formerly SK Customs) has released their third installment of the “La Revolución” series which is meant to be a 4 gun series. These four guns highlight the heroes of Mexico’s fight for independence from Spain throughout the early 1800s. This 3rd production run features depictions of Pascual Orozco and his successful efforts in freeing Northern Mexico.

SK Guns/SK Customs @ TFB:

Haymarket, Virginia – February, 2024 – SK Guns®, the Nation’s only series-driven, limited-edition manufacturer of custom firearms, is proud to announce the release of the limited-edition Pascual Orozco-inspired firearm.

Orozco was a natural military leader. In October 1910, he was named Jefe Revolucionario (Revolutionary Leader) for going against the Porfirio Díaz dictatorship. A week after the Mexican Revolution war broke out, Orozco obtained his first victory, against General Juan Navarro in Ciudad Juárez.

To pay tribute to Orozco, SK Customs is introducing a limited-edition production run of only 300 Colt 1911 Full-Size Government Models chambered in 38 Super. Featuring a high polished royal blue finish with selective silver plating, each pistol will include a special engraved edition number.

Consistent with the Pancho Villa and Venustiano Carranza productions, this firearm continues with a depiction of the “Monument to the Revolution. A cannas lily, native to Mexico, is wrapped around the slide and accompanied by an illustration of a silver-plated Orozco on horseback to commemorate the victory he secured at the battle of “Cańon de Mal Paso Enero 1911.”

Orozco was infamous for ordering that the uniforms of dead soldiers be sent to President Díaz. His notorious saying – “Ahí te van las hojas, mándame más tamales.” or “Here are the wrappers, send me more tamales.” – is engraved on the frame of this production.

This production will also feature the Orozco Family Coat of Arms as well as a depiction of revolutionary fighters in Orozco’s camp, silver plated a ribbon reading “Ciudaded Juárez, Chihuahua”.

Completing the firearm, a portrait of Orozco sits atop the slide. There is a bandolier near the gun’s chamber, just below the iconic Mexican Eagle respective for its era. The firearm wears a set of custom Kirinite® grips embedded with a set of custom 24k Gold Peso Medallions. The MSRP of this unique collectible is $2,900.

If one of these pistols from the “La Revolución” series is the vibe you’re looking for, the expected ship date for these handguns is sometime around April 2024. I am typically not one for highly customized handguns, but these are pretty sharp looking. What do you think? As always, let us know all of your thoughts in the Comments below! We always appreciate your feedback.
