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.

Pancho killed Americans in 1916 in northern Mexico to protest Pres Wilson. I don’t see the reasoning to commemorate that. Pancho’s troops then killed 17 Americans in Columbus NM. Troops from Camp Furlong fought Pancho’s men. Pres. Wilson sent Pershing against Villa March 15th. It’s quite a piece of history. Each country has it’s own heroes.
Judging from the responses this has gotta be one of the most tasteless firearm commemoratives ever offered. Im personally waiting for the Field Martial Doctor President for Life Idi Amin Dada engraved and embellished 1911A1.
These silly items should find a hot market with Mexican drug cartel lords. They are famous for their love of tasteless, pimped-up firearms. But anyone else would be ashamed to own one.
Without a doubt the ugliest, tackiest piece I have ever seen. Re-do it in plastic as a toy, it will be a hit among the third grade boys.
Is it just me, or doesn’t anyone else find something wrong with commemorating a terrorist who attacked the United States, raided our country, and killed US civilians, more or less for no reason?
What’s next, the Osama Bin-Laden edition? How about the Pol Pot version, complete with fine engravings of piles of skulls?
Sorry, but count me out.
Yeah, let’s celebrate a sociopath that repeatedly led criminal gangs across the border to rob, rape, and murder American civilians.
Well, gosh, this is just great. Celebrating a great crime boss who kidnapped and executed 19 Americans (US Citizens) from a train and executed the. Burned the town of Columbus, NM where at least 19 of our citizens were murdered. Maybe we can get a Tehran Embassy Hostage memorial edition or a 9/11 celebratory model. Yes, when you’re making money from the deaths of your countrymen, the sky’s the limit. Maybe go international with a “I’m No Holocaust Denier!” Auschwitz Edition; “Rwanda Forever!” Genuine Genocide Government Model; Collect Them All! Why hasn’t anyone thought of this until now!? Oh, yeah, moral decency.
