SK Customs Gives Back To Honor Those Who Have Served with a Limited Edition Purple Heart Commemorative Colt 1911

Monday, August 8th, 2022

HAYMARKET, Va. (August 5, 2022)—SK Customs® gives back to honor those who have sacrificed and served for our great nation by launching the 240th Anniversary Purple Heart Commemorative firearm on their behalf. This limited-edition design of the Government Model Colt 1911 Series 70 chambered in .45ACP has been created in honor of the Military Badge of Merit, the modern-day Purple Heart Medal and those who have received it.

The origins of the Purple Heart Medal trace back to August 1782 (240 years ago) when General George Washington issued the Badge of Military Merit. This medal was bestowed whenever any singular meritorious action was performed. In 1932, the award was reintroduced as the Purple Heart Medal to commemorate bravery and wounded soldiers. Today, the Purple Heart is awarded for a wide variety of injuries; this includes combat injuries and deaths, those wounded in acts of terrorism and other reasonings.

Highlights of the Custom Colt 1911 Series 70 include:

• Each pistol has been designed to display a custom medallion of the modern-day Purple Heart Medal set into bright white faux ivory grips.

• The slide contains custom 24K gold scroll, shading and inscription of the quote “SOME GAVE ALL, ALL GAVE SOME” dedicated to those who serve.

• The rear panel of the Colt 1911 displays George Washington’s Coat of Arms while the reverse has the quote of “A GRATEFUL NATION HONORS AND REMEMBERS”, both in 24K Gold.

• The top of the slide has been designed with an authentic purple sapphire front sight, modern day Purple Heart Medal, 24K gold ribbon, and George Washington’s Badge of Military Merit and signature.

• Further gold plating with high polishing has been placed along the slide, frame flats, slide, barrel and hardware.

• Each model has been engraved with a special edition number 001of 240 in 24K gold on the rear panel

In addition to these features, each pistol will also be accompanied by an uncirculated West Point Minted National Purple Heart Hall of Honor 2022 Proof Silver Dollar with the West Point “W” mint mark and a certificate of authenticity singed by the Director of the U.S. Mint.

“We commemorate our nation’s heroes who have served and sacrificed their lives for our great Nation,” said Khiabani. “I am elated to pay tribute to those have served by releasing this stunning limited-edition firearm and our SK Give Back initiative.”

SK Customs has partnered with and will be donating a portion of the proceeds raised by the sale of this Limited-Edition production to Purple Heart Homes and Purple Heart Integration Project in addition to a pistol to each foundation for their upcoming fundraisers.

Firearm enthusiasts and gun collectors can begin pre-ordering the custom Government Model Colt 1911 Series 70 for $2,900. Shipping begins Q4 of 2022.

SK Customs Releases The HAKA in Stainless, Part Two of a Two Part Limited-Edition Production Designer Series Colt 1911

Thursday, June 9th, 2022

HAYMARKET, VA – June 3, 2022 – SK Customs pays tribute to Haka Ka Mate with the launch of The HAKA, part two of a two-part limited-edition production designer series Colt 1911.

HAKA Ka Mate pre-dates the 19th Century and is defined as a Warriors Mantra; an expression consisting of every part of the body. Today Haka is performed in many reverences most predominately by the New Zealand Champion National Rugby Club and in other arrays throughout the world in both a ceremonial and threatening show of force through rhythmic moving of the body. 

“The Haka is a ceremonial dance in M?ori culture and represents a display of a tribe’s pride, strength and unity,” said Simon Khiabani, owner and founder of SK Guns and SK Customs. “As we continue to release limited-edition firearms, we will continue to pay tribute to traditions and cultures from around the world.”

This final iteration of The HAKA is presented on a Full-Size Colt Classic 1911 Series 70 .38 Super and comes in a high polish stainless steel frame, slide and accents. The HAKA also features:

• High polished silver nation matched barrel

• Gold plated and high polished magazine release

• Grip screws

• Barrel brushing and spurred hammer with 24K gold etched motifs

• Diamond studded factory front staked sight

• Super Bright White Ivory polymer engraved grips

The HAKA comes with a limited-edition series number from 001 of 200 etched in 24K gold behind the right slide serrations. The HAKA is the final legacy of this two-part limited-edition designer series with The MANA distinguishing the series.

The HAKA can be pre-ordered for $3,200.

CAA USA To Offer MCK Rifle Line Up

Thursday, May 19th, 2022

The overwhelming success of the CAA USA MCK (Micro Conversion Kit) which takes popular handguns to the next level, has contributed to a natural evolution for CAA USA.

CAA USA will be introducing a whole new lineup of MCK rifles coming in Q4. CAA USA is holding a contest to name their new rifles; the winner is to receive an early serial numbered MCK rifle.

Pompano Beach, FL. (May 2022) – CAA USA designers, and developers of the world-famous MCK/Micro Conversion Kit, have decided to move into the gun manufacturing world utilizing the same MCK “look” that hundreds of thousands of customers have become accustomed to.

The new rifle line-up has been in the design and R&D phase for some time, as LTC. (Ret.) Mikey Hartman described the new products. “If it was not for all our loyal, distributors, retailers, and end-users, this dream of a complete rifle system, based on the design principles of our MCK line, would not be possible. Design, tooling, and testing is an expensive endeavor, and it’s with tremendous appreciation for our customers’ passion for the MCK line, that we have been able to move forward with this project.”

The new rifle is based on the ergonomic design of the original MCK. Three models will be the first released between 2022 and 2023. A 16-inch barrel and 10-inch with a welded faux suppressor and a 10-inch NFA model will be offered. The 9mm and 10mm rifles are built on a blowback system, and the .223 will be a traditional gas operating system. The 9mm and 10mm models will be the first available in 2022.

The MCK 9mm and 10mm rifles will both accept GLOCK magazines and feature a spare magazine holder. A full-length top Picatinny rail provides plenty of room for optics, and two sides Picatinny rails for lights, lasers, and additional accessories. The folding stock folds left or right for ambidextrous storage and transportation. All three models are expected to retail for under $900.00.

In preparation for the end-of-year launch, CAA USA is asking for help from their valued customers in naming the new rifles in the CAA USA “Name Our Rifle Giveaway”. The winner of each of the officially accepted names for the 9mm, 10mm, and .223 will receive, respectively, the first of each new model as an award for the winning name.

“We used to think we know it all, but the past few years have taught us very clearly that our fan base can and does contribute to our R&D decisions. We have become better because of them”, LTC. (Ret.) Hartman continued. “That is why we are excited to again have our customers participate in the official naming of our new rifles. We are looking forward to seeing what they come up with.”

For more information on the MCK, visit CAA USA at, or join the conversation on the CAA USA Facebook, Instagram, and  YouTube pages.

CAA USA will be exhibiting at the NRA 2022 Annual Meeting & Exhibits at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas. CAA USA will be at booth #538.
