The Apocalypse Is Here! Cabot’s High-End 1911 — SHOT Show 2022

Cabot’s Apocalypse is made to be used.

Inspired by the samurai swords of lore, Cabot Guns’ new Apocalypse 1911 is built to be carried and used for a lifetime.

Apocalypse Pistol

As always, Cabot Guns has created a stunning new 1911 pistol. The slide is crafted from long-grain Damascus steel. The etched steel’s pattern is visible as long lateral lines run down the slide and then are revealed like wood grain in the canted serrations and cuts.

At the back of the slide, you can see the whole pattern in circular nodules like boudinage exposed in metamorphic rock.

The long-grain Damascus pattern is revealed in the canted serration cuts.

But this one is not a safe queen. Like the Damascus samurai swords, it’s intended to be carried and to perform efficiently. The slide includes an optics plate compatible with Trijicon RMR pattern sights. The plate is deeply cut and the sights are tall so that you can co-witness and acquire targets quickly.

The back of the slide shows the Damascus pattern as well. Each unit is uniquely patterned.

The barrel is threaded for suppressors and extra-tall sights are an option as well. A light rail is included under the barrel, but it can be omitted upon request.

The mag well is extended to guide your re-loads, and all the steel is finished in Cabot’s durable and transparent Heritage finish or nitride.

It comes in full size or commander length, and it’s chambered for .45 ACP or 9mm.

    I sure hope they sell per order….otherwise they will lose a lot of money sitting on the shelf waiting for that one person that will pay 7.5k for a 1911……..and there are a few people that have money to burn……average price of a Dan Wesson is 1.8k which is too much…..how about 16ea Tisas at 450.00 and still change left over for ammo.

    At HALF that price it’s still over priced, and I appreciate the effort that goes into making it. But, just no, it ain’t happening.

    Why $7000?
    Does it make 2 holes with 1 shot?
    Maybe if it makes me coffee before I shoot.
    All Hype. Same Bite with a $1000 gun.

    I bought these for the members of my security detail. I also keep a couple extras on the helicopter next to the class 3 B&T APC. Of course the yacht has hidden M249s for when our trips to Monaco take us closer than comfortable to continental Africa.

      An over done bagel. Give me a nice H&K 1911 or FN of the same, then use the extra money from what’s left for a nice rifle from the same companies

    Nice gun but who the hell buys these pistols? 7000+? I could buy 5 really nice 1911s for that price.

    Is the Damascus just aesthetic, or does it serve a purpose. I understand the concept of microscopic teeth for a blade, but fail to understand why it’s used for the slide. The laminations can sometimes seperate.

    • David February 7, 2022, 3:10 pm

      Right. Hope it was welded right so the layers don’t crack. 7000 dollar paper weight. Looks beautiful but don’t want it separating in my hands.

      Good quality Damascus steel is every bit the rival of the fluid variety. And beautiful to boot. Too bad they wasted all that effort on making a Fudd gun.
