The Nighthawk Custom Border Special is a finely crafted pistol born from a collaboration with Sheriff Jim Wilson, a legendary law enforcement officer with extensive experience patrolling the southern border and combating crime in the ‘80s. Sheriff Wilson’s 40 years of experience with the 1911 platform have shaped his ideas on what a fighting pistol should be, culminating in the creation of the Border Special. This firearm is designed for those who demand performance, reliability, and easy handling in high-stress situations.

Built on a Concealed Carry Cut, the Border Special features a Commander-sized frame and slide chambered in the time-tested .45 ACP round. The frame and mainspring housing have been optimized for carry with scallop texturing, ensuring minimal slippage and a comfortable, secure grip. The slide includes a Heinie Slant Pro rear sight and a Gold Bead front sight, enhancing sight acquisition in any lighting condition. The top of the slide is serrated, further improving focus and precision during aiming.
