Recently we saw what SIG SAUER’s master gunsmiths can do with some medieval subject matter. But while sharp lines and orderly curves are something of a SIG trademark, the flowing designs and intricate shapes of a typical Aztec-style piece of art are a completely different ball game. Nevertheless, SIG’s master gunsmiths seem to have come up with a winning design on that front as well . . .
While the grip isn’t authentic ivory, the inlaid gold and precious gems make up the difference in value. Instead of simply slathering the thing in gold, the gunsmiths have smartly used it to highlight certain parts of the design and accentuate the intricate engraving on the slide. To me, the sparing use of the precious metal makes its impact all that more effective.
Yeah. She’s pretty, ain’t she?
