Extraterrestrial Pistol Set Created by Cabot Guns to Cost $1 Million
In perhaps what can be christened as the costliest pistol ever, gin maker Cabot Guns plans to sell a pistol nest year that is worth $1 million and is made from meteorite.
 
Targeted for the “Man Or Woman Who Has Everything (On Earth)”, Cabot Meteorite Pistol Set is described as an “extra-terrestrial pistol” by the maker. A pair of mirror-image is contained within the pistol that is 1911-style semi-automatic 45′s make – one for each hand. The set, for now, is being called the Big Bang Pistol Set.
  
“The pistol set will be a modern work of functional art and the ultimate set of luxury guns,” according to Cabot’s CEO and president Robert Bianchin.
 
The meteorite that is used for the pistol comes from a 35 kilogram portion of the Gibeon Meteorite care of famed meteor collector Robert A. Haag that is 4.5 billion years old. Sometime in the prehistoric times, around 12,000 years ago, the Gibeon meteor had landed in what’s now Namibia.
 
The meteorite is being called “the Cadillac of meteorites” by pistol maker Cabot, which has been described as the “Rolls Royce of 1911′s”.
 
 “It’s both romantic and fascinating to imagine that this meteor traveled across the heavens for four billion years before landing on Earth and is now being transformed into Cabot pistols,” says Bianchin.
  
While this is the first time there has been a fully meteorite firearms set manufactured, Cabot, a four-year-old company not far from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, had created pistols with meteorite grips earlier.
 
The 2016 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Louisville, Kentucky, which runs from May 20 – 22, 2016, would be the occasion when the pistol set would be showcased.
 
“The pistols will likely be sold at auction and without a doubt will be the crown jewel of any museum or private collector interested in either meteors or firearms.  Cabot has been offered $250,000 from a collector based on concept alone but estimates on the value have ranged from $500,000 to over $1,000,000” Cabot says.
 
However from what communication was available from the company’s Instagram pageit seems that the meteorite set is still under construction. The company communiqué says: “the construction of each component has been a science experiment, but we are confident they will be fully completed.”
 
Many on social media joked at the possible time when the next meteorite pistol set would be available. ““The lead time on the next set is another 4.5 billion years,” the company said in a light tone.
 
 “It hasn’t been done before and that’s the kind of thing that drives me. I think it’s fair to state many of the pistols we have constructed border on art,” Bianchin told CNNMoney.
 
Cabot guns have been featured on “Criminal Minds” and Kid Rock liner notes.  
  
“The Left and the Right” set of pistols that was made by Cabot a few years ago featured Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Piers Morgan and Ted Nugent and had hit the headlines.
 
“As the guns are positioned in opposite directions, the grips show President Barack Obama facing to the left while President George W. Bush faces right,” said Cabot Guns president Rob Bianchin.
