Smith + Wesson" Limited Edition" #4 Poseidon
The POSEIDON is an instant collectors item and was a limited production run of 200 and was designed in close collaboration with Master Engraver Melissa McMinn,a Firearms Engravers Guild of America(FEGA) award winner.Based on the well known Smith and Wesson Full Size 1911 E-series (45 ACP),this custom creation was conceived tp pay homage to POSEIDON, the Greek God of the sea,Earthquakes and Horses.He was considered one of the most bad Tempered Olympian Gods and known for his violent Temper.
The slide,frame and grips feature spiral scroll to represent high seas and rouge waves,while the fore and aft serrations on the slide represent fish like scales.Stunning artwork on the sides of the slides adds visual depictions of Poseidon with the right side portraying a 24KT Gold plated Poseidon riding on a Hippokampoi(fish like horse)and thunderbolts filling the sky above them while the left side prominently features Poseidon infamous Trident plated in 24KT Gold which legends say he used to control the sea and land.
The most eye catching feature is the propritary conversion coating that results in a highly reflective Aqua Marine background in the engraved areas behind the selectively gold plated artworknwhich seems to shimmer off the overall stainless satin finish.to tie it all together Aqua Marine colored greek key meander and other art adorn the Pearl grips and select hardware that has been plated in 24KT gold and nickle. rounding out this creation is the new Novak front sights with a strikingly authentic center set Blue Diamond further embodying grandeur of Poseidon as the Greek God of the Sea.
