Nighthawk Custom has partnered with Larry Vickers, a respected name in the field of tactical shooting, to produce the Nighthawk Custom Vickers Tactical 1911 pistol. Built to Vicker's exact specifications, the .45 ACP, 5-inch-barreled Nighthawk Custom Vickers Tactical 1911 comes with a certificate of authenticity and a letter signed by Vickers. Serial numbers will begin with the prefix "LV." The pistol's frame has been created by Vickers and is produced by Caspian Arms. It has an integral extended magazine well, as well as a plunger tube that is part of the frame and not staked on as with other pistols, ensuring the plunger tube will not come loose.
The Nighthawk Custom Vickers Tactical 1911 also includes front and rear cocking serrations on the slide and a trigger designed by Vickers. The pistol is completely dehorned to remove sharp edges in the way Vickers has prescribed. Options include Novak, Bo-Mar, or Heinie sights and green or black Coyote Strider grips or Mil/Tac black/gray grips.
