The Turnbull VIP model is the first of our VIP Collectors Line. The Turnbull VIP is built as a true heirloom piece that is the result of a collaboration between Nighthawk Custom and Turnbull Restoration. This pistol is crafted with all the finest customizations, including a classic case hardened and polished frame. The high polished and charcoal blued slide is paired with a high polished nitre blued slide stop, magazine release, pins, and thumb safety. The barrel has been finished in high polished DLC. To top it all off, it features a 14k solid gold bead front sight, mammoth ivory grips, two jeweled mags, and a custom case. Every pistol will vary slightly in appearance because each case-hardened frame and set of mammoth ivory grips are unique. For years, firearms customers have loved Turnbull Finishes.

Cross-cut mammoth ivory is banned in the following states: CA, HI, IL, NH, NJ, NV, NY, OR, WA. Can replace cross-cut mammoth ivory grips with mammoth tooth grips.

One Gun, One Gunsmith.
