SK Customs has announced the third edition of their “Untamed” handgun series with the Luchando Tigre being debuted via the Colt 1911 platform. A pistol that looks befitting of the social media phenomenon Tiger King (of Netflix fame), this handgun is chambered for .38 Super and only 200 of them are set to be produced.

SK Guns/SK Customs @ TFB:

This production run of 200 handguns will don a set of rare specimen genuine tiger maple wood grips meant to resemble a tiger’s coat with 24K gold Colt® Rampart inserts. The Luchando Tigre is a limited-edition product run of Colt 1911 Full-Size Government Models chambered in 38 Super, featuring a semi-polished stainless finish on the slide and frame flats.

Haymarket, Virginia – March 15th, 2024 – SK Guns®, the Nation’s only series-driven, limited edition manufacturer of custom firearms, is proud to announce the release of the third edition of the Untamed Series of the world’s deadliest predators: “Luchando Tigre.” This latest production in the series combines a native ritual and a deadly predator into one remarkable installment.

“Luchando Tigre” comes from the native Atsatsilisti ritual in the Mexican state of Guerrero to offer blood to the god Tláloc and the earth in exchange for the rain necessary for a good harvest. Dressed in a tiger personification and equipped with a rope bathed in mezcal, the tribute’s shed blood is the offering required by Tláloc to send the rain. A deadly tiger is depicted wrapping around the slide leaping toward its prey with teeth and claws bared, locked on tearing apart its prey.

“This year’s edition of the Untamed Series truly embodies the idea behind this line of custom guns,” said Simon Khiabani, owner and founder of SK Guns. “The tiger symbolism used in the Arsatslisti ritual for rain combined with the danger synonymous with the Bengal tiger that is depicted along the slide showcases the “tigris” subspecies century-old status as one of the most feared predators in the world.”

The tiger is covered in 24K gold and black-filled stripes with selective silver-plated eyes, teeth and claws. The Colt® logo decorates the rear left panel and the right is engraved with each gun’s unique issued series number.

The Luchando Tigre can be purchased on the SK Customs website HERE starting at $2,700 and they are slated to begin shipping on Cinco De Mayo (May 5th, 2024) of this year.

  • When I saw the headline I thought to myself "So help me if these aren't chambered in 38 super...."

    Clicked the article and was NOT disappointed. 🤣

    I enjoy art guns but this one gets an F. The gold accent in the lower is not bad, but why oh why would you slather the slide with detail and leave the lower plain??? If you are going with a theme commit to the theme. As it is it looks like they spent all their time on the slide and left the lower as an afterthought - albeit that means the lower looks nicer because the theme is kinda fugly.

    I won't even get into the tiger/jaguar/drug cartel issue, as that is covered by other commenters.
