The Nighthawk Custom Thunder Ranch Combat Special is a unique collaboration between Nighthawk Custom and Thunder Ranch. Thunder Ranch, led by Clint Smith, has been the premier facility for all types of firearms training for over 25 years.

Clint, a 1911 expert, selected Nighthawk Custom to build his ideal pistol. After multiple discussions and prototypes, Clint finalized this design as the ultimate combat handgun. This model features newly designed extra wide front and rear cocking serrations, a lanyard loop mainspring housing, a “GI-Style” nub thumb safety, custom engraving, and a gold bead front sight. The gun is finished with a unique Smoked Nitride finish and green linen/micarta scale grips. Standard in .45 ACP but available in 9mm as well.
