    My Easter Sunday treated me to meeting @BCD 45, an Addict many of you hold in high regard. After our FTF transaction for the two ‘Hawks pictured below I can now officially join the ranks of grateful brothers in arms for someone who we’re all lucky to have among us. A true gentleman, as honest as...

    So I am buying one more nice 1911 and I will be done for a little bit. I will go through George at Gunslingers because he has always taken excellent care of me with every order placed. This will be the most I have spent on a 1911 thus far. All my other builds have been in the $3500 range. I...

    I want to build a lightweight 1911 from Nighthawk in 45 ACP. I am told the options I can finish a lightweight frame are more limited. I want a black type finish and told my options are either Anodized Black or Cerakote. Anybody have any pics or experience of what the anodized black looks ...

    Happy Sunday Addicts, I’ve identified the pistol that’ll make our collection complete at this point in time (famous last words?) and would love to hear the thoughts of my fellow Addicts re: caliber choice. A few things to consider: I have not shot a compensated gun of any type I do not reload...

    I have a 2008 year of manufacture 10mm DW CBOB that has work done by Nighthawk in 2016. They cut the barrel flush with the barrel bushing and put a target crown on the barrel. Also, installed a new trigger that feels lighter and a big improvement in feel over the other CBOB's I have owned. It...

    Before Christmas I posted a question here on the forum regarding what to do with a 2007 Nighthawk Talon showing an unusual wear pattern on the back of guide rod and the front of the barrel lugs. Contact between those two points had actually peened the inside edge of the barrel link slot to the...

    I am not trying to make a vs thread. I obviously respect both companies and am tempted by both. If I go Alchemy I'm gonna get a Prime Elite 9mm. Nighthawk I am getting a Classic model in 9mm. The Nighthawk optioned out how I want is gonna be about $4400. The Alchemy about a grand less. I...

    Placed an order about 2 months ago for a custom Shadowhawk in 9mm. It should be done soon! It will be all black and will have an extra barrel that will be threaded for my suppressor. It will be similar to this build. Can't wait!

    Edits: $2090 plus shipping. Steel frame. Fellow Addicts, so I'm thinning my collection because I've recently become "economically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic." I suppose this one might qualify for the "catch and release" category. This was the Nighthawk Custom T3 that was posted in...

    My wife surprised me with this and as I do love it, I have my eye on something else. Here’s a nighthawk custom Bob marvel 1911 9mm. Comes with two 10 round mags, classic green nighthawk case and with test target. Like most of you addicts out there, I think I found “the one” but something...

    I pulled the trigger on a custom Shadow Hawk Government from Nighthawk! I ordered it in 9mm, with ambi safety, agent one rail scale grips, 3 dot night sights, and an extra barrel that is threaded for my suppressor. Should be one sweet pistol! Now the wait begins.. The picture attached is very...

    I hope you guys find this interesting or informative ;) Nighthawk got my 1977 Colt Commander (38 super) on Wednesday and today I got a quote. I was so impressed previously speaking with Bob Reeves that virtually anything I wanted could be done including little things like serrating the slide...
