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.

Since this pistol is well appointed with Ken’s preferred custom options the only allowable upgrades are ambidextrous safety, choice of front sight and deluxe hand polish blued finish. (Ivory grips and hex screws are for photo purposes only and are not a standard feature.)
