At Shot Show 2014 Cabot Guns made quite a splash with their mirror image 1911 pistols. These two guns were true right and left hand 1911 pistols. The right had all the conventional controls, ie. safety, slide stop and magazine release that we are all used to.
The Left gun however was totally backwards (as you might expect) with the controls on the wrong side of the gun. Which makes sense when you see the scrimshaw by Darrel Morris on the grips. The Left gun has Piers Morgan on the right grip and Obamo on the left grip.
So when the two guns are muzzle to muzzle you have Morgan facing off with Nugent on one side and Obama with Bush on the other. The display highlights the great American gun debate.
The folks at Cabot Guns obviously have a sense of humor as well as a clear understanding of what will spark discussion. These presentation grade 1911 pistols show off the abilities of the company to produce high grade guns. These guns were the talk of the show, nearly everyone I talked to asked, “Have you seen the Right and Left guns at Cabot’s booth?”
Cabot Guns was launched in 2011. In a short time, the company has won two consecutive NRA National Pistol Championships. The Cabot 1911 has been described as “the Rolls Royce of 1911’s” by S.P. Fjestad, Author and Editor of the “Blue Book of Gun Values.
