Reading down through the list of features on this pistol series, is it any wonder that Nighthawk calls it the VIP, or "Very Important Pistol"? Heirloom piece. Yes. The "Turnbull 1" is the product of a collaboration between Doug Turnbull and Nighthawk. Availability of these pistols is extremely limited, and no two will be completely alike. It's unlikely that 1911 enthusiasts and aficionados alike will not be adding this pistol to their most-wanted lists, because there may not be a finer 1911 produced anywhere on the planet.

Fully machined from billet. Made in the USA. Includes a custom display box.
