Also on the Highland Outdoors stand we saw two new Colt 1911-style, BB-firing, Co2 pistols. Apparently Max Michel is a big star in the USA and has a loyal following. His pistol had all the sexy upgrades you find on any custom 191, adding to its good looks and handling. The second one had ‘molon labe’ written along the slide and grips which means ‘come and take them’. According to folklore, when Xerxes, King of Persia, demanded that the Spartans put down their weapons they responded ‘molon labe’ – come and take them. It was finished in a highly unusual brown, and had a Spartan helmet printed on the grips to complete the look. We’re not sure if they’ll be coming to the UK, so watch this space.
