The Meteor Pistols Set – the Pair of 9mm Glock

In January of this year we reported here that Cabot Guns was producing a pair of Glock 9mm guns made of meteor. On May 23, at the NRA Annual Meeting and Conventions held in Louisville, Kentucky, Cabot Guns finally revealed the pair of pistols.

The Gibeon meteor (which will be used by Cabot to produce the weapons) earned it this name because, after traveling more than four billion years in space, it crashed into the earth in the city of Gibeon, Namibia. It was even discovered by the people of Nama and with their metal they built prehistoric weapons and tools. The West was unaware of the existence of this meteor until the 17th century. And in 2015, Cabot Guns acquired a piece of this meteor to forge the most beautiful pair of man-made 1911 pistols: The Big Bang Pistols Set.

“Craftsmen and meteor collectors have admired the Gibeo meteor for many years because of its crystalline Widmanstatten pattern,” said Cabot Guns creator and president Rob Bianchin. He further added the “companies that manufacture luxury goods used it to make jewelry, and other works of art. But this is the first time that part of the meteorite is made to create a functional mechanical device. “

It takes a lot of skill to work with this material. From the metallurgical point of view, it is not uniformly perfect, not to mention the hundreds of small earth fragments included in its formation, thus making it a unique dexterity object to manipulate. But none of this prevented Meteor 9mm Glock Guns from creating the meteor-powered pistols.

Cabot used 3D photography, 3D modeling, CAD-CAM drawings and ar15 designs, aerospace construction techniques, beam-cutting technology, and countless hours of great skill at creating a pair of fully functional meteor guns.

Each component has been carefully planned, tested and meticulously cut to suit both the outside and the inside of the meteorite, to the design of the weapon elements. The only parts of Glock 9MM Single Stack that are not made of material are the springs, pipes, dog structure, pins, bolts and bolt grooves. Everything else, from the bolt to the hilt of the hilt, is made with Meteor Gibeon.

The aesthetic finish of this pair of guns is due to the various states that this material can be removed. The Widmanstatten pattern is created by the slow cooling of the core of the meteorite, dropping a few degrees every million years. “It’s an art by itself to draw something in a widmanstatten pattern through acid,” said Cabot Guns chief engineer and CO, Michael Hebor. “The material seems to have a will of its own.” The result was an aesthetic feat and the Widmanstatten pattern adorns the gun down to the smallest detail. And yes, the gun works.

“I shot with just one hand,” said Hebor, who is right handed, “I held the gun with my left hand and put my right hand on my back. You know, goes that something goes wrong. “

“We fired both guns at our booth in Indiana,” Bianchin revealed. “The adrenaline of shooting them for the first time was greater than when we cut the meteor for the first time. But yes, they shoot. Everything worked just the way it should work. “

Although not impossible, it is highly unlikely that the person who buys the pair of meteor-powered guns will use them for defense or sport, after all, the value initially offered for this weapon when its production was announced was $ 1,000. 000.00 but the recently announced amount is $ 4,500,000.00. If it is sold, The Meteor Pistols Set Glock 9mm For Sale will be the most expensive weapons ever sold in the world. “She’s worth every penny,” Bianchin said.

To accompany the launch of the pair of pistols, Cabot Guns also presented a Sandrin Knives knife, built from old space material, the tungsten carbide, and the splints of his fist are made of the same material as the gun.

“This Sandrin knife is the perfect accompaniment to the pistols. Forged to tolerances measured in a parallelism of .0002, the knife is a work of art – and by far the most accurate man made. We call it ‘The Big Bang Knife’. ” Cabot will bring the Sandrin Tungsten carbide knives to the public in early June.

The pair of meteor guns is the kind of weapon that Kings, pharaohs and ancient conquerors would be happy to acquire. After all, they carried unique weapons, made of rare materials. And there is no denying that this is the case of this “The Big Bang Pistols Set”, since there is nothing like it on the entire planet Earth.
