The Nighthawk Custom Thunder Ranch Edition is a unique collaboration between two legendary companies in the firearms industry. Nighthawk Custom is well known for building the finest 1911 pistols, using their “One Gun, One Gunsmith” approach that means each individual gun is built start to finish by a single gunsmith. Thunder Ranch, led by Clint Smith, has been the premier training facility for all types of firearms training for over 25 years.
Clint Smith, a 1911 expert, selected Nighthawk Custom to build his ideal pistol. After multiple discussions and prototypes, Clint finalized this design as his ultimate version of a handgun. This model features newly designed front and rear cocking serrations, a lanyard loop mainspring housing, a “GI-Style” nub thumb safety, custom engraving, and a gold bead front sight. The gun is finished with a unique Smoked Nitride finish and green linen/micarta scales.
