This limited edition 1911 is the result of Nighthawk Custom and Guns & Ammo Magazine building a pistol to follow the historic partnership that G&A has had with firearm manufacturers for decades. Through the years, Guns & Ammo has partnered with select manufacturers to produce very special and collectable firearms. Editor of Guns & Ammo Eric Poole, Nighthawk Custom Owner Mark Stone, and gun writer Richard Mann, designed this gun using Col. Jeff Cooper’s (Founder of Gunsite Academy) configuration of the perfect 1911.
The pistol incorporates a commander size frame and slide, rear cocking serrations only, (Col. Cooper did not believe that your hand should ever be up near the end of the barrel.), slotted grip screws, a hand-stippled front strap and a lanyard in a smooth mainspring housing. Adding to the finish of the pistol is a crowned barrel, a medium length solid trigger, and custom Alumigrips with the Nighthawk logo.
Limited to 100 pistols and sequentially numbered GA00001 through GA00100, this 1911 looks as good in a showcase as it does in a holster. Each pistol comes with a Letter of Authenticity signed by both Eric Poole and Mark Stone.
With the following upgrades:
