In a unique blend of art and firepower, SK Customs and Springfield Armory have joined forces to launch the Early Italian Renaissance series.

The series kicks off with ‘Michelangelo,’ the first of four limited-edition handguns, inspired by the artistry and innovation of the 15th-century Italian Renaissance.

Each release in the series will be a collector’s dream, limited to just 250 numbered units.

The ‘Michelangelo’ model sets the bar high, featuring engravings of David and scenes from the Sistine Chapel Ceiling and the “Madonna della Pietá” – some of Michelangelo’s most celebrated works.

Simon Khiabani, the owner and founder of SK Customs, spoke about the collaboration.

“The goal of the Early Italian Renaissance series is to symbolize the cultural rebirth of the 15th century and pay homage to the knowledge, art and humanism that sparked iconic paintings, sculptures and architecture during this era,” said Khiabani.

“The Michelangelo firearm strikingly introduces this series. The combination of the gold plating and the teal color conversion accents is spectacular, and we are able to pay homage to some of Michelangelo’s most iconic works,” he added.

The ‘Michelangelo’ boasts a unique teal color, achieved through SK Customs’ proprietary color conversion engineering, ensuring both vibrancy and durability.

Adding to its Italian flair, the handgun features genuine Italian Olivewood grip panels, adorned with the Fleur de Lis and hand-painted to match the teal slide accents.

Attention to detail is evident in the firearm’s finishes, with a semi-polished frame and slide flats, and a high-polished barrel.

Select parts of the gun, including the intricate artwork, are adorned with 24-karat gold plating, enhancing its aesthetic appeal.

Beyond ‘Michelangelo,’ the series will introduce other Renaissance greats like Leonardo da Vinci, Andrea del Sarto, and Raphael. The designs draw inspiration from the Springfield Armory 1911 Garrison model, merging historical art with modern firearm craftsmanship.

For the true aficionado, the ‘Gold Series’ ups the ante. This ultra-exclusive collection features only 25 sets of 1911 pistols, each with matching consecutive series and edition numbers.

The series also includes 24-karat gold etched blades by Coltellerie Maserin and an optional custom display case for showcasing these masterpieces.
