Cabot Guns: A premium 1911 gallery (11 PICS)

Cabot Guns of Pennsylvania is perhaps best known for its $4.5M Big Bang meteorite pistol set, displayed at SHOT Show 2016. The company continues to use novel materials and processes in the creation of its premium 1911s. Here’s a sampling of their 2017 SHOT Show display.

Cabot has purchased Alchemy Custom Weaponry, but is keeping the brand, and staff, the same. Alchemy-branded pistols will sell in the range of $2,500.

In addition to the Alchemy acquisition, Cabot Guns is building every standard right hand model in 9mm. “It’s not very sexy, but people are asking for that,” said general manager Michael Hebor.
