Nighthawk sends 1911 VIP Black forth into the world

A new Nighthawk Custom Firearms pistol has sallied forth into the world – meet the 1911 VIP Black.

From Berryville, AR comes notice of the new high-end blaster, and make no mistake, this is far more a Winston/Continental Hotel weapon than it is a Parker/Longbaugh/donation clinic type beater. Hell, it has a solid 14k gold front sight and engraving by FEGA Master Bertram Edmonston!

The 1911 VIP Black is the latest in the VIP series. Nighthawk describes it as a “presentation grade work of art,” which seems accurate, going on to say it is the “..ultimate connoisseurs’ pistol.”

That said, we’re pretty confident the DLC-coated VIP Black would be perfectly capable of withstanding the rigors of daily use.

Mark Stone, Owner and CEO of Nighthawk Custom, tells us,

“The VIP Black is one of our most exclusive models. This 1911 is built with a focus on true craftsmanship and will be an heirloom piece that will garner attention in any collection.

As with all Nighthawk weapons, the VIP Black is based on the mantra One Gun – One Gunsmith.

Nighthawk’s release describes the VIP Black thusly:

This 1911 VIP series gun is a true masterpiece of craftsmanship with luxurious amenities. Hand engraved details by Master Engraver, Bertram Edmonston, coupled with a black diamond like coating (DLC) and built by Nighthawk’s top tier gunsmiths.  A presentation grade work of art, the VIP Black, has a durable finish that can be carried and used daily. The VIP Black is the ultimate connoisseurs’ pistol.

The VIP Black is chambered in .45 ACP with a height of 5.6” and an overall length of 8.66” on a government frame with a 5” crowned barrel.  The VIP Black also includes front strap and mainspring housing serrations, as well as, hand serrations to the rear of the slide ejector that match the Heinie black rear sight. 

The beauty is in the details so this VIP is also equipped with a 14k solid gold bead front sight and giraffe bone grips.

    My fondest sentiment on a beautiful job well done. My job as an RN doesn’t leave the wiggle room to purchase my own, but I have more than enough to afford the net which brings me invaluable lessons like close quarter drills I just learned that may save my life one day. So thNk you and keep at it love viewing your work sir.
