Wilson Combat says a Supergrade pistolsmith handfits and finishes each Pinnacle. Then, firearms engraver Wayne D’Angelo hand engraves the frame, slide, thumb safety and slide stop. Finally, each Pinnacle receives the company’s blue finish and polishing on the frame and slide sides.

Each Pinnacle comes in a walnut presentation case with a letter of authenticity.
