Through the 57-year history of Guns & Ammo magazine, Model 1911 pistols have regularly appeared within its pages. Gunwriters like the late Lt. Col. Jeff Cooper wrote about all aspects of this handgun, including training techniques at Gunsite Academy and do-it-yourself gunsmithing projects.



Today, Eric R. Poole, the editor of G&A, and contributor Richard Mann, decided to partner with Nighthawk Custom and design a signature pistol to represent the heritage of the magazine and benefit wounded veterans. Col. Jeff Cooper himself would be proud.

Given considerations based on Cooper's writings, the Nighthawk Custom Guns & Ammo Limited Edition 1911 was born. With only 100 pistols being produced, the pistol celebrates G&A with its logo engraved on the Commander-length slide. The entire 1911 is hand-fitted by Nighthawk's gunsmiths and reflects top-shelf craftsmanship throughout every component of the firearm.

To commemorate this Limited Edition 1911, the pistol wearing serial number GA00001 will be auctioned at GunsAmerica.com starting March 30, 2015. Through the generosity of Nighthawk Custom, all the proceeds derived from the sale of this pistol will go to supporting Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA). Additionally, Nighthawk is only offering 100 of these pistols through its more than 400 preferred dealers. It will be donating 5 percent of the sale price of those firearms to support HAVA. Every pistol sold will be delivered with a serialized Letter of Authenticity signed by Nighthawk Custom CEO Mark Stone and Guns & Ammo Editor Eric R. Poole. It's destined to become collectible and has already proven to be a tack driving work of art.

Learn more about how Col. Jeff Cooper's parameters for an ideal 1911 influenced the design of Guns & Ammo's Signature 1911, and read the complete review in the May 2015 issue of Guns & Ammo.
