The Aztecs regarded the jaguar as the bravest of beasts, and the proud ‘ruler of the animal world’. The Jaguar was a favorite symbol in Aztec representations of war. In Aztec mythology and astrology, the jaguar also played an important role. Aztec kings, like their Classic Maya predecessors, used the jaguar to enhance their social status. As the jaguar was lord of animals, so an Aztec emperor was ruler of men. Aztec emperors wore jaguar clothing into battle, and sat in judgement on a throne . Jaguar Warriors were members of the elite Aztec military special forces.
Our limited edition Colt is a full sized blued government in .38 super caliber. The slide is first polished and then deeply embellished with Aztec themes of jaguar, rulers and high priests. The grips are a unique white pearlite reflecting the Aztec themes with gold hex screws and gold rampant Colt. The Jaguar Select pistols have special factory issued serial numbers REE001-REE020.
