HAYMARKET, VA – November 4, 2022 – SK Customs is celebrating the rich history of the Mexican Revolution with their latest series, “La Revolución.” Kicking off the historical series is the “Pancho Villa,” a gun that tells the story of Mexico’s revolutionary general, Francisco “Pancho” Villa.

“We are proud to announce our new series, ‘La Revolución,’” said Simon Khiabani, owner and founder of SK Customs®. “‘Pancho Villa’ marks the first pistol in the limited-edition production run of only 300 full size Colt 19ll chambered in 38 Super. These beautifully engraved, collectable firearms honor the Mexican Revolution, a defining historical event that lasted just over 10 years.”

A beautiful Cannas floral scroll frames a dramatic illustration of Pancho Villa on horseback galloping into battle on the left side of the firearm. Along with an engraved depiction of The Monument to the Revolution in Mexico City, the side is completed with the general’s Army, known as “División del Norte,” holding a banner with Pancho Villa’s iconic phrase, “Fusílenlo, Después Averiguamos,” translated as “Shoot him, we’ll find out later.”

The coat of arms Free and Sovereign State of Durango emblem, engraved with “REVOLUCION,” decorate the right side of the “Pancho Villa.” Selective coverage of a Cannas floral scroll with frosted shadowing border a right profile design of the general fearlessly galloping into battle. This side of the pistol is completed with the phrase, “El Centauro del Norte,” translated “The Centaur of the North.” 

An accentuated portrait of Francisco Pancho Villa titled “1878-1923 Centenaro,” signifying the 100th anniversary of his passing sits on top of the slide. The top of the ejection port showcases Pancho Villa’s Bandolier loaded with .30-30 caliber cartridges while the rear sight features Mexico’s coat of arms (1899-1917).

The gun is perfected with a highly polished frame, slide, barrel and hardware engraved with selective silver and gold plating on the slide. Custom antique gold peso medallions embellish the new Kirinite style grips for a notable finish.

Each firearm in this series includes an engraved edition number. To learn more about SK Customs® the history behind this sequence of pistols, visit skguns.com.
