HAYMARKET, Va. September 15, 2023 — SK Customs®, the Nation’s only series driven, limited edition manufacturer of custom firearms, is proud to announce the release of the limited-edition Generalissimo Jose M. Morelos Colt 1911. This is the third edition of the Mexican War of Independence series, following the success of The Emperor and Premier Presidente.
Morelos, a Mexican priest, statesman, and military commander, is considered a national hero in Mexico. He led the Mexican War of Independence movement, assuming his leadership after the execution of Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla in 1811. Morelos was one of the first true Mexican nationalists and had a vision of a unified, free Mexico.
“This historically significant war was fought for 11 years and 11 days. It ended over 200 years ago on September 27th, 1821. We’re proud to continue honoring the Mexican War of Independence,” said Simon Khiabani, owner and founder of SK Customs. “We’re thrilled to announce this limited-edition production run of only 200 Full Size Government Model Colt 1911 chambered in 38 Super and give collectors a chance to own a piece of Mexican history.”
Each pistol will include a special engraved edition number. The firearm features intricate engravings on both sides, depicting the 1810 Mexican Independence Coat of Arms, the Congress of Chilpancingo on the day of signing the Solemn Act of the Declaration of Independence of North America and the first Mexican legal historical document which established the separation of Mexico from Spanish rule.
The right side of the firearm is adorned with the Coat of Arms of Morelos along with a depiction of when Hidalgo summoned Morelos to join him shortly after his “Grito de Dolores” (Cry of Delores) starting the revolt for Mexico’s Independence. The top of the slide presents a portrait of Generalissimo Morelos and an illustration of the equestrian statue of José María Morelos located in the city of Guadalajara.
