Turnbull Model 1911 Limited Edition
Take a WWI-era 1911 reproduction already known for its uncommon performance, and add a set of white dot sights from Kensight. You now have an enviable 1911 hybrid that will be the talk of the range.
With all Model 1911s built by Turnbull Restoration, customers have been drawn to the marriage of restoration-grade artisanship with new gun production. Such is the case with this expression – it’s a no-nonsense, WWI-style 1911 that demonstrates what can be accomplished when the restoration mindset is applied to the production of a new firearm. This is a great opportunity to add to your collection a period-faithful piece with all the benefits of new production.

"One can hardly handle and shoot this Turnbull M1911 without thinking of the likes of Black Jack Pershing and his ride into Mexico, or Alvin York and the rest of the boys who went 'over the top' in Europe during World War I."
