SK Customs Releases Pascual Orozco-Inspired Pistol

There is no shortage of custom firearms makers, but SK Customs stands out with its line of series-driven, limited-edition firearms. It secures batches of new firearms for refinement and embellishment. These are aimed at those who appreciate art and history alike.

The latter fact is noted in La Revolución Series, which first hit the market a year ago with the release of a Colt 1911 chambered in .38 Super honoring Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa. It was followed by a pistol to commemorate Venustiano Carranza, who introduced the modern Mexican constitution.

Now, for 2024, SK Guns is introducing the third pistol in La Revolución Series with a Pascual Orozco-inspired firearm. A natural military leader, in October 1910, he was 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.

“Pascual Orozco was a key element to Mexico securing victory in its war for independence,” explained Simon Khiabani, owner and founder of SK Guns. “This limited-edition firearm pays tribute to the man who secured key victories in Northern Mexico, notably in the battle for Ciudad Juárez in Chihuahua.”

SK Customs has introduced a limited-edition production run of only 300 Colt 1911 Full-Size Government Models chambered in .38 Super to pay tribute to Orozco. Each features a highly 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, the newest addition to the La Revolución Series depicts the “Monument to the Revolution.”

In addition, 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 gained infamy for ordering that the uniforms of dead soldiers be sent to President Díaz, and his notorious taunt – “Ahí te van las hojas, mándame más tamales” (“Here are the wrappers, send me more tamales”) – is engraved on the frame of the pistol. It

The limited edition 1911 also features the Orozco Family Coat of Arms as well as a depiction of revolutionary fighters in Orozco’s camp, silver plated a ribbon reading “Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua,” while a portrait of Orozco sits atop the slide. An iconic bandolier is also placed near the pistol’s chamber, just below the iconic Mexican Eagle. The firearm includes a set of custom Kirinite grips embedded with a set of custom 24k Gold Peso Medallions.
