The Nighthawk Turnbull VIP 1, or Very Impressive Pistol, is just that, impressive. The Turnbull VIP models are the first additions to our VIP Collectors Line. As one of our 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 is required to give this unique appearance, these guns are very limited in availability. This pistol is crafted with all the finest customizations, including a classic case hardened and polished frame. The Turnbull high polished blued slide, matches the slide stop, magazine release, and thumb safety. To top it all off, we added an 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 Custom 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.
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.
