Late in 2011 Bob Marvel decided that he would train one of our Master Gunsmiths to build one of his most popular custom models. This involved literally months of training and preparation. The time was well spent, and has produced what we consider to be one of the finest and most unique models we have offered to date. This model incorporates several features that are new to the 1911 market, one of which is the new Nighthawk / Marvel Everlast™ Recoil System™. This new recoil system allows a shooter to go at least 10,000 rounds before a spring change is necessary. Felt recoil and muzzle flip are also dramatically reduced. The proprietary barrel system is unique to any we have ever produced. The groups at 50 yards are beyond the capabilities of the average shooter.
Other features include fully adjustable sights that have been recessed into the slide, and are fully dehorned, which allow the shooter to change zero to whatever distance they intend to shoot. As mentioned earlier, this model will only be built under license by Bob Marvel® by our Master Gunsmith that he personally trained to follow his exact specifications. Don’t miss this opportunity to add one of these to your collection. They are destined to become heirlooms in the future.
