The MANA features symbols and designs taken from the Polynesian Ethos to create a stunning and instantly collectible gun. After extensive R&D and close collaboration and production assistance from the Baron Art Studio and Baron Engraving, this custom limited-edition gun is scheduled to begin shipping October 2020 and they are currently taking reservations for special edition numbers now via their website contact page https://skarmsva.com/the-mana/. Collectors of Part-One will have first rights to the matching special edition number on Part-Two.
Polynesian Ethos believes that anyone or anything have an actual spiritual lifeforce energy or healing power that permeates the universe. It is this belief that is referred to as Mana. To have Mana implies influence, authority, and efficacy in the ability to perform in a given situation. To embody this spirit in a firearm, SK Customs started with a full-size Colt 1911 Classic chambered in .38 Super and then added Polynesian symbols and designs to visually and physically bring Mana to life. The result is a high-quality firearm that is also a functioning work of art made up of spiritual and meaningful characters of the Māori tribe.
The MANA features a high polished royal blued slide with Polynesian inspired motifs extensively etched in 24k Gold and a Diamond studded front sight. Gold plated hardware including the magazine release, grip screws, barrel bushing and hammer. Pueo (Owls) are black etched on each Ivory Scrimshaw finished grips and a High-Polished Stainless-Steel national match barrel completes the package. Each gun in this numbered edition series will be sequentially numbered from 001 to 200.
