Our Assessment: From SK Custom’s website: “Like The MANA, The HAKA is inspired by the Polynesian Maori tribe and with venerations given to the Polynesian Culture. SK Customs has taken what inspirations of The MANA resonated to create The HAKA enduring them into the highest-quality, abstract work of art with each engraved motif having a symbolic message.” This pistol’s high polish Royal Blue and Gold finish, diamond studded front sight, Polynesian inspired designs on the slide and grips as well as the limited production of only 200 of the Haka pistols makes for a wonderful addition to any collection.
