    A few days ago I was fortunate to get a magnificent set of grips from Scott @AF_ONE. I have never seen grips like that, a testament to his art and impeccable skill. Timing too could not have been better. It was one more difficult day in Mayo, and continuation of an additional Godawful month...

    So I am doing a function test like I always do after a cleaning and low and behold my NH counselor fails the grip safety test. I think perhaps I dont usually pull the trigger as hard as I did this time but I can repeatedly drop the hammer on this pistol without the grip safety engaged - it takes...

    I was fortunate enough to attend last weeks gathering at Nighthawk and really enjoyed the experience and the members who were able to attend. I knew I wanted to order a custom Nighthawk and finally decided on what model and changes I "need". On one hand it was great to see a bunch of...

    Is there a way to create an advanced search for classifieds and somehow "save" it so that it's constantly running and will hit me via email and DM if something pops up that meets those qualifiers? I'm tired of missing out on items I've been hunting and seeking simply because I'm not one of the...

    Considering a high end 1911, what are your expert opinions on which manufacturer. Looking for durability and accuracy. Thanks
  6. Nighthawk Custom

    Original case and owner's manual. Two 8 round magazines. Great gun for the serious collector.

    Torn about selling this but since I have two almost just alike I thought I would replenish the gun fund. This gun is in excellent shape, like new. I have put less than a hundred rounds through it myself, I bought it unfired. Right after I purchased it it had some issues with hollow point...

    I wanted to take a moment to praise the excellent service I received from Bob Reeves and the staff at Nighthawk Customs. While cleaning my pistol after a range session, I noticed what appeared to be a very light hairline crack in the interior of the slide. After a brief conversation with Bob...

    My Nighthawk got ArmorLubed The latest suite of finishes employing Duralar’s Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition. The finish introduces a whole new dimension of exciting new technology. ArmorLube coatings are created from a proprietary carbon-based formula. The carbon provides a natural...

    I was referred to this site from The Colt Forum, and from my brief looking around I believe I should fit in here. I've got 10 1911's plus 2 Micro 9's that I think qualify as mini 1911's. You could say I am a 1911 addict. My current problem involves my Nighthawk Custom .45 ACP 1911. I think it's...

    Hey everybody, I'm looking to feed my 1911 addiction and add another 1911. I'm looking for some insight on two 1911's. I have no experience with either the Nighthawk Custom GRP and Ed Brown Special Forces. Unfortunately the pistols are not local so putting my hands on them is out. Both are...

    Anyone ever had this happen? Finished one mag, installed another mag and the slide automatically slammed home chambering a round without me touching the slide release. Weird deal. It only happened this single time and It didn’t do it again. Only shot ~100 rounds today. Happened with a brand new...

    For sale is a beautiful Nighthawk Falcon 5” 9MM pistol built by Joey Lehr. The gun was bought NIB by me in 2020 and unfired since then. This summer I sent the gun to Nighthawk custom shop for full brushed polish on the whole pistol. It came back yesterday in a gorgeous look. The only reason for...

    My nephew and I went to our LGS to pickup his new Kimber 1911 and I had to return some items. I was expecting to come home unscathed but I was wrong. I have eyeballing this NH for awhile and they made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. I’m hoping my nephew and I can get out tomorrow to try our new...

    Anyone have thoughts on the alchemy prodigy in 9mm. I was looking on purchasing one and haven’t seen any discussions on the topic.

    Update from an earlier post: I ended up coming to comfortable terms with the seller of this Kestrel. Once I gave it a thorough cleaning, the idiot scratch and general wear was less noteworthy than I had originally perceived. It’s a very nice feeling pistol. I’m happy it worked out.

    Looking at a NH President to purchase, any thoughts or comment? It’s in 9mm with a gold barrel. How would the gold wear?

    Is there a discount that would entice you to buy a Kestrel with this severe an idiot mark?

    Have lots of mowing and trimming to do in the morning. Then a friend and her husband are coming over to do some shooting in the afternoon. Her husband is bringing his Nighthawk. I have never seen one in real life..only drooled over them on their website. So im really excited about getting to...
