Ride the Tiger: SK Customs “Luchando Tigre” Drops May 5



This Colt 1911 chambered in .38 Super combines a native ritual and a deadly predator into one remarkable gun.

SK Customs, a series-driven, limited edition manufacturer of custom firearms will release its newest wonder on Cinco de Mayo 2024. “Luchando Tigre” comes from the native Atsatsilisti ritual in the Mexican state of Guerrero to offer blood to the god Tláloc and the earth in exchange for the rain necessary for a good harvest. Dressed in a tiger personification and equipped with a rope bathed in mezcal, the tribute’s shed blood is the offering required by Tláloc to send the rain. A deadly tiger is depicted wrapping around the slide leaping toward its prey with teeth and claws bared, locked on tearing apart its prey.

“This year’s edition of the Untamed Series truly embodies the idea behind this line of custom guns,” said Simon Khiabani, owner and founder of SK Guns. “The tiger symbolism used in the Arsatslisti ritual for rain combined with the danger synonymous with the Bengal tiger that is depicted along the slide showcases the “tigris” subspecies century-old status as one of the most feared predators in the world.”

The tiger is covered in 24K gold and black-filled stripes with selective silver-plated eyes, teeth and claws. The Colt logo decorates the rear left panel and the right is engraved with each gun’s unique issued series number. The production comes complete with a set of rare specimen genuine tiger-maple wood grips showing off stripes going across the grain resembling a tiger’s coat with 24K gold Colt Rampart inserts.

Luchando Tigre is a limited-edition product run of only 200 Colt 1911 Full-Size Government Models chambered in 38 Super, featuring a semi-polished stainless finish on the slide and frame flats. Luchando Tigre can be purchased here, starting at $2,700.00 and will begin shipping on Cinco De Mayo (May 5th, 2024).
