An accurized and refined version of one of the best pistols ever made!

The Nighthawk Custom Colt Series 70 offers several functional and aesthetic upgrades to a timeless classic. We have taken the Colt 1911 Classic model and given it an overhaul. An all-new trigger system has been installed with a match grade, solid short trigger, fully machined disconnector, sear, hammer strut, and pin. The rear sight has been replaced with a fully machined retro sight while the front sight features a Nighthawk Custom 14k gold bead. The Colt Series 70 has been outfitted with a retro hammer, Nighthawk Custom beavertail grip safety, mainspring housing, and match barrel bushing. Upgrades such as an ultra hi-cut trigger guard, matching vertical serrations on the front strap and mainspring housing, French border on the slide, and Nighthawk Custom engraved on the dust cover, take an already beautiful firearm to the next level. While not offering a slide-to-frame fit, Nighthawk Custom has upgraded the performance of the Colt Series 70 with a full reliability enhancement and action tune. The performance upgrade began with the flattening and polishing of the breech face. The feed ramp was then machined to the proper dimension before being polished. The barrel was throated and polished while the chamber was reamed and polished. The Colt extractor was polished and tuned before both the Colt ejector and slide stop were adjusted and tuned. The Colt mag release was also tuned and polished for smoother function. A new Nighthawk Custom 17 lb. recoil spring was added, as was a Nighthawk Custom extra power firing pin spring. The mainspring was replaced by a Nighthawk Custom 19 lb. mainspring to complete the action tune. After hand-beveling the edges of the slide, the Colt Series 70 received a custom Smoked Nitride finish to make this pistol a functional work of art.

NOTE: THIS GUN WAS SOLD. WE WILL LEAVE IN THE WEBSITE FOR A WEEK IN CASE YOU WANT TO ORDER ONE. NORMAL WAIT IS 18 MONTHS BUT WE HAVE ONE IN ORDER THAT SHOULD BE HERE EARLY 2018. The most beautiful handgun we ever had in The Scopesmith! Nighthawk Turnbull VIP 1, or Very Impressive Pistol, is just that, impressive. The Turnbull VIP models are the first additions to Nighthawk VIP Collectors Line. As one of Nighthawk most exclusive models, the VIP is built as a true heirloom piece that is the result of a collaboration between Nighthawk Custom and Doug Turnbull. Because of the time and skill that that is required to give this unique appearance, these guns are very limited in availability. This pistol is crafted with all of the finest customizations, including a classic case hardened and polished frame. The high polished, charcoal blued slide, matches the slide stop, magazine release, and thumb safety. To top it all off, Nighthawk added a 14k solid gold bead front sight, mammoth ivory grips, and a custom case. Every pistol will vary slightly in appearance because each case hardened frame and set of mammoth ivory grips is unique. For years, firearms customers have loved Turnbull Finishes. Because of the relationship between Mark Stone of Nighthawk and Doug Turnbull, and the respect both men have for the product each company produces, they have created a partnership that has resulted in the finest 1911 pistols on the market.
