Nighthawk Costa Ludus 1911

Our friends over at Gun Gallery in Jacksonville, Florida posted up pictures of this Nighthawk Costa Recon 1911 they recently received. This 1911 is collaboration project between tactical trainer Chris Costa and Nighthawk Tactical. The $3,495 MSRP for this 1911 is not for the feint of heart, but it does have everything Chris Costa wanted to incorporate into his idea of the perfect 1911.

If you're in the Jacksonville Florida area and want to see this gun in person head over to Gun Gallery. Also if your looking for a copy of the latest issue of RECOIL Magazine they've got it also.

    So, basicly, because this gun says Costa on it – It it worth an additional 1500. ?
