SK Customs restored history early this year by announcing “The Lost States of America Engravers Series,” highlighting the first custom gun, “The Lost State of San Jacinto – Sam Houston.” With limited inventory available, collectors and firearm enthusiasts can now purchase this outstanding, 24k gold-engraved Colt 1911.

Following the success of “The Lost State of Jacinto - Sam Houston,” SK Customs has revealed the sequel in the series, “The Lost State of Franklin - John Sevier.” Set to launch in 2023, the production highlights the rich history of America’s young independence. John Sevier was an American soldier, frontiersman and politician that marked history in 1784 by creating The State of Franklin, today known as part of Eastern Tennessee.

“With only a few of our custom Colt 1911’s honoring General Sam Houston remaining, those who missed the launch can now purchase directly on our website,” said Simon Khiabani, owner and founder of SK Customs. He went on to announce that “SK Customs is releasing a sequel in 2023, ‘The Lost State of Franklin – John Sevier,’ honoring the founding father of Tennessee. Those who own the first in the series will have first rights on their matching limited-edition number on next year’s gun and subsequent launches in this production series."

The Battle of San Jacinto took place in 1836 in present-day Harris County, Texas as one of the most important battles of the Texas Revolution. This gun tells the story of General Sam Houston leading the Texian Army against General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna’s Mexican Army in a critical victory.

The battle lasted only 18 minutes and changed the world, leading to the United States gaining not only Texas, but also New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona, California, Utah and parts of Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, and Wyoming. It is one of the most decisive and consequential battles in the history of the United States and the Western world.

Details on each side of the pistol include a beautiful custom scroll pattern that flows to the top of the slide. On the left side of the gun, SK Customs has engraved the iconic quote by General Sam Houston, “Texas has yet to learn submission to any oppression, come from what source it may.” The right side quotes the Texian Army as they charged into battle shouting, “Remember the Alamo, Remember Goliad!” The coin and gun are sourced directly from partners in the Lone Star state, highlighting its rich historical value.

The top of the slide provides a portrait of General Sam Houston in front of the Monument of San Jacinto, while the rear of the slide is engraved with State Seal of Texas and “The Lost State of Jacinto.” The pistol is completed with Mesquite Burl grips native to Texas.

Purchase “The Lost State of San Jacinto – Sam Houston” for $3,000 today for immediate shipping and be on the lookout for the exciting sequel in this series.
