Behold the Trump 45, the Rolls-Royce of firearms made for Donald Trump supporters and Second Amendment fans.
It’s finished in 24 karat gold, made with real meteorite, and has the blessing of the NRA.
Could this limited-edition 1911 pistol engraved “TRUMP 45” make presidential firearms great again?
That’s what Cabot Gun Company, a Sarver, Pennsylvania-based specialty firearms manufacturer, is aiming to find out.
Rob Bianchin, Cabot Guns’ founder and CEO, reveals the golden gun has a production run limited to 45.
Only a lucky few — ostensibly, those with thick wallets — can afford to get their hands on the 45th President of the United States-inspired pistol.
Prices for the Trump series range from $15,000 to $35,000, and premium models are expected to fetch in excess of $50,000.
Each made-in-America firearm is denoted by a presidential-themed serial number. The George Washington model bears serial number WASHINGTON01. The Trump model is TRUMP45.
Of course, this is no ordinary gun.
In addition to its gold finish, the Trump 45 has its name engraved on one side and “45th President of the United States on the other and is made of steel “to aerospace tolerances and with artisan finishes.”
The grips are made from the American holly tree, and the trigger and front sight are made from 4-billion-year-old meteorite that, according to a statement released by Cabot Guns, symbolizes the “meteoric focus of the Trump Presidency and commitment to America.”
If a gun made with meteorite sounds familiar, you may remember a pair of Cabot Guns 1911 pistols touted as the most expensive gun in the world, the Big Bang Pistol Set, made with meteorite and priced at $4.5 million.
The company expects the Trump 45 series to attract Trump fans who are keen on protecting their Second Amendment rights.
According to Cabot Guns:
“The company has been privileged to have crafted pistols for Kings, Royalty, Heads of State, as well as numerous celebrities and captains of industry. Yet, as Bianchin noted, it is with particularly distinct honor that Cabot is producing this tribute to President Trump. ‘The election of President Trump was critical to those of us who value upholding the constitution, especially the Second Amendment.’”
So how do you get your hands on a Trump 45? Only 44 will be sold to the public, some directly and some at auction.
Owners of the Trump 45 may be more interested in showing it off than, say, shooting it.
For firearms collectors eager to display their latest acquisition, the Trump model comes in a glass case with a wood base containing “wood inlays from the U.S.S. Constitution, the wooden-hulled Naval vessel named by George Washington.”
Your Trump 45 also has the approval of the National Rifle Association.
The promotional materials for the presidential pistol include a blessing from Chris W. Cox, the executive director of the NRA Institute for Legal Action.
“President Trump’s election was of historic importance to all of us who cherish and value the Second Amendment,” says Cox. “We’re proud to stand with President Trump and Cabot Guns in defense of our right to keep and bear arms.”
