Guncrafter Industries No-name Commander in .45 ACP with Turnbull Blue finish with a 2015 build date.

General info on the pistol-
The first owner states he purchased it brand new, but never shot it. The second owner states he fired 100 rounds of factory 230 grain jacketed ball with no issues, and disclosed to me that the slide finish had a few small brass colored specks so I sent it to GI for refinish in Turnbull blue. I am the third owner and have never shot it, but I did a complete disassembly, cleaning & lubrication, and installed Challis thin grip screw bushings. The VZ Carbon Fiber ETC/Frag Grips shown in pics are not included, but you get the original wood grips and a black set of GI Shredder grips too. The package includes the two sets of grips, GI gun bag, towel, lock, test target, and 2 WC magazines along with one Tripp Cobra magazine. This is an outstanding Guncrafter Industries finished in Turnbull Blue at a superb price!

Nighthawk Custom GRP (Global Response Pistol) 5” barrel 1911 in .45 ACP.

This very nice pistol has two additional options- an ambidextrous thumb safety ($120) and a magazine well ($150). Judging from the gun’s condition, I doubt it was shot much (see VERY minimal wear on slide Marvel style disconnector cut shown in pics). The gun is tight and the bore is mint. There is a very small ring mark on the front strap checkering (pictured) and a very slight scratch from the slide stop going back into the frame (pictured). Other than that, this gun is about perfect. It comes with the soft case, 1 Wilson Combat magazine, and 1 un-used NHC magazine. The original manual and test target are missing. NHC confirmed the pistol was built on 3/20/2012 by Don Morris.

The GRP retails for $3095 from Nighthawk, and $3365 by adding the ambi-safety ($120) and the magazine well ($150).

Valued at $3529 with these upgraded parts shown in photos include: Novak Cut Gold Bead Front Sight ($76), 10-8 Rear sight that was polished/cold blued ($53), Challis grip screw bushings ($16), and VZ Turbo grip screws ($19). The original sight and grip screws are included too.

Les Baer TRS (Thunder Ranch Special) 5” barrel 1911 in .45 ACP with FCS and Severns Hard Hat.

SOLD to BAW659

This very nice pistol has a build date of January 2009, and has a very low round count (the original owner only fired 50 rounds). I am the second owner and fired about 300 flawless rounds before sending to Severns Custom in July 2017 to get some minor upgrades (shorten/flatten both slide stops, fit/tune spare extractor) and get his Hard Hat Treatment on the entire pistol including the spare parts. The gun has one “silvery” colored blemish on right side of frame about 1 inch forward of the trigger guard that is shown in pics. Challis grip screw bushings were installed along with a set of VZ Operator 2 “Punisher” grips, and VZ black colored Turbo grip screws. The original tritium sights were very dim so I had them replaced with a 10-8 U-Notch rear and 10-8 fiber optic front (the spare fiber optic rods will be included). Fifty rounds have been fired since the Hard Hat treatment during my CCW Qualification and it ran flawlessly. Total round count fired from this workhouse is 450 rounds.

It comes with a soft gun sock, one Wilson Combat magazine finished in Hard Hat Treatment with Tripp follower kit, one stainless Wilson Combat magazine with a Tripp follower kit, cardboard box with matching Serial Number label (box is longer than the ones I have previously seen so I don’t know if it is original)

Priced at $2350 FIRM shipped to your selected FFL. SOLD to BAW659

Slide Stop
Extended Magazine Release
Harrison Design Extractor
Harrison Design Firing Pin Retainer
