    Anyone have the deets on this? Found this accidentally on an image-search. Looks like a Sig Sauer type slide on a Caspian 1911 Govt frame. Bob Marvel had something to do with it..... Also looks like it had a NHC "Border Special" style front-strap scallop before it got the Marvel treatment...

    No experience shooting a true 1911, assuming you don't want to count the wilson combat edc x9 or HK45. Touched a few 1911(s), especially at the local Scheels. And the Nighthawk Bob Marvel stood out to me. The lady was getting annoyed with me as I touched virtually every 1911 they had. hope...

    Anyone who has followed my posts over the years... esp the last few years, knows that I am a Marvel style gun cool-aide drinker. In other words, I think that the way that Bob and his gun smith tree approaches guns is inline with the way I want my guns built! Sure there many other guys in the...

    Hey ya’ll! If anyone has followed my posts over the years, you would likely know I am a huge Bob Marvel fan! The NH guns are fine but I am referring to actual guns that came out of Bob Marvels shop. Over the years I’ve come across a handful of owners but in all honesty, if I were counting...

    Around a year ago I was lucky enough to score an original Marvel that Bob built back in the late 90's. The gun was chambered in 45acp. That gun has been a very special for me, and one thats well documented here! You can go back and look over the original post if you would like. Last week, I...

    I just "pulled the trigger" on a new old stock Nighthawk Custom Bob Marvel .22 LR pistol. It doesn't sound like many of these were made and from what I've heard they're pretty good shooters. I can't wait to get her to the range; will be interesting to see how it compares to my S&W 41.
