According to Merriam-Webster, in the English language of yore, the verb bespeak had various meanings, including “to speak,” “to accuse,” and “to complain.” In the 16th century, bespeak acquired another meaning – “to order or arrange in advance.” It is from that sense that we get the adjective bespoke, referring to clothes and other things (guns, in this case) that are ordered or custom fitted before they are made. You are most likely to encounter this adjective in British contexts, such as the tailor who offers bespoke suits – suits that are made to fit a specific individual. This suit is considered a perfect fit, as it was made specifically for you. The same goes for a bespoke gun – you are creating the perfect fit customized to your own body, stance, and shooting style – the gun is literally made for you.
