Something is going on at Colt that has its employees on the edge of their seats.
Rumors of massive layoffs have been going around since a post on Pistol-Forum read, “Sounds like a big mess down there a whole lot of pink slips, including my favorite division, the custom shop.”
It’s not yet known the extent of the layoffs, however, it has been confirmed that Brent Turchi, director of Colt Customer Service and the Colt Custom Shop, was let go recently.

I bought this in early November and finally shot it today. First I immediately shipped it off to Wilson for the Ultimate Action Tune, short reach trigger, and mag guide. Then upon its return I was also supposed to have my CCO back about the same time and since it's a 40 minute drive to the range I held out. Well forget waiting any longer!
Shoots like a dream. I've never felt a softer recoiling 9mm. 1 failure-to-feed about shot 56. I fired 100 Fiocchi 115 gr, then 50 American Eagle 124 gr, followed by 50 American Eagle 147 gr, and wrapped up with 100 Federal HST 124 gr +P.
Many have probably seen this if you look in thee classified much (very dangerous thing to do).
I recently picked up another Nighthawk. A Falcon this time though. This is my second gun built by Joey Lehr, and like the first one, it is frickin' awesome. If you are reading this, Congrats Joey (ask for a raise).
This one has a few different twists to it. The slide is bare, save the NHC logo on the rear. It has a rail. And it also has a flanged barrel like a Predator would.
Went to my local gun store yesterday and a 5" Clapp jumped out at me.. Few things I didn't care for so decided to go home and do a little work. I limited myself to parts I already had sitting around.
So fit an Ed Brown thumb safety, Nighthawk trigger, Challis grip bushings, new grips, did a little trigger work to get it to a nice clean 3.5#, Flush cut and reverse 45 degree the factory barrel then shot the frame and all small parts with a matte graphite black Cerakote.
