Video: The Hackathorn Special Commander Pistol, New from Wilson Combat

The newly-released Hackathorn Special Commander is geared towards the needs of the concealed carrier who prefers this model’s shorter 4.25″ bushing barrel and full-size frame. The one-piece Bullet Proof® magwell, concealment hammer/grip safety, and the versatile medium-length trigger were personally selected by Ken Hackathorn as the best for his needs and are standard on this pistol.
