Jones Deluxe mirrored pistol set in .45 ACP point out voices from left and right
Following the final airing of Piers Morgan Live on CNN, we were reminded of the impressive "the Left and the Right" pistols from Cabot Guns at SHOT Show.
Las Vegas, Nevada - You never know what you're going to see at SHOT Show. Sure you're going to find guns, gear, and firearm accessories, but every now and then, if you're lucky, you'll find a true work of art. Such is the case with Cabot Guns' "The Left and the Right" pistols.
A one of a kind offering, the Left and the Right utilize the elegance of Cabot's Jones Deluxe mirrored pistols design with mesmerizing scrimshaw grips.
"Scrimshaw works are created by punching tens of thousands of tiny holes in the surface of the ivory and filling them with black oil paint," explained scrimshaw artist Darrel Morris. "This technique takes hours and hours of meticulous labor. What you're looking at is three months worth of work squeezed into every waking hour of three weeks."
And while the scrimshaw is impressive enough, it's the subject matter of the scrimshaw that really catches the eye.
On the Right gun you find portraits of President George W. Bush and Ted "The Motor City Madman" Nugent. On the Left appears President Obama and everyone's favorite Brit Piers Morgan.
"Just a little fun, a little tongue and cheek wrapped up in a rendering of our flagship pistol," said Cabot Guns President Rob Bianchin. "A fine art depiction of the great American gun debate."
The guns are pretty darn impressive too.
Chambered in .45 ACP, the Jones Deluxe mirrored image set is just that … a mirrored image set.
"The rifling, the ejection port, the controls are each built from the ground up from a single block of billet steel. We're not talking about a right handed pistol being converted for a lefty, each individual piece of that pistol was created specifically for a left handed shooter."
Cabot Gun Company is based in the rolling hills of western Pennsylvania. Just three years old, the company has produced some impressively engineered pistols in that time. The American Joe, Black Diamond, and National Standard to name a few. So impressive that the last two NRA National Pistol Championships were won with Cabot guns.
“Each Cabot represents the work of over 70 of America's finest engineers, tool makers and master craftsmen," added Bianchin. “Our objective is to build an important and enduring American brand,demonstrating how the finest products in the world are built right here in America.”
The Left and the Right appear to be just that.
