New from Turnbull: Commander Heritage Model 1911


Turnbull Manufacturing Company is known for their vintage firearm restoration work and their period-correct color case hardening and bluing work. But they also manufacture complete firearms. New for 2016, Turnbull has released the Commander Heritage Model 1911 . . .


The Commander model comes standard with Beavertail grip safety, steel parts, blue finished slide, double diamond walnut grips, Commander-style hammer and standard barrel 4.25” barrel.

Upgrades include a bull barrel and custom engraving. These pistols are hand-fitted and feature Turnbull’s signature color case hardening on the frame, and time period correct blue finish on the slide.  The accent pieces are finished with a Nitre bluing process.  These firearms are truly magnificent, and unfortunately the light at SHOW Show makes it difficult to take photos of them that do them justice.  Another view of the same pistol can be found here.
