Wilson Combat Hackathorn Special
Ken Hackathorn has been one of the most influential experts in the field of practical pistol shooting since the mid 1970’s. His practical knowledge of firearms and training is unsurpassed and so is his well known love for the timeless 1911 pistol.
When asked to develop his dream Wilson Combat custom 1911 pistol Ken drew upon decades of practical experience and his vast collection of custom handguns to develop the “Hackathorn Special”. This model is geared towards the needs of the serious defensive shooter and has “Everything you need and nothing you don't". The “Hackathorn Special” is destined to be a Wilson Combat classic handgun selection.
From the 5”, full size construction to Ken’s preferred sights and options, The Hackathorn Special is a unique combination of our time tested best features like full size slide and frame, one piece Bullet Proof® magwell, concealment hammer/grip safety and the versatile medium length trigger which is suited for shooters of all hand sizes. Each pistol will have Ken’s signature and logo on the slide.
These are available in Black, or Blue, or Black over Grey colors.
