The Cabot “Big Bang” 1911 Set

These were absolutely AMAZING guns. Cabot makes some REALLY impressive 1911s, but these were LITERALLY Out of This World.

Breathtaking guns.

So the meteor the guns were made from was mostly made of Nickle and Iron, making it a natural sort of Stainless steel. It’s softer than conventional steel, so Cabot welded conventional steel rails to the gun, and this is one of their test scraps

Test Rail

While the steel is softer than what Cabot makes their other guns from, these are actually shoot-able guns, and should live a moderately long service life….still where they shine (LITERALLY shine) is their looks!

    Did they actually let you touch them?

      No, they were in the display.

        Ah, nuts.

        But they did let you touch the scrap? And that was still meteorite? Because then you would have literally touched something not of this world, and that’s kind of shiny.

          That’s my hand with the test rail fused to the scrap of the same meteor.

          The Boston Museum of Science has a bunch of REALLY big Meteors that you can handle and climb on, so it wasn’t my first experience with outer space rock….but yeah it is really cool when you think of it that way.
