    Good evening everyone, I am currently nearing the end of my wait for my NHC Shadow Hawk upgrades to be complete. Mr. Reeves called me the other day and said that all the machine work and fitting was complete and the only thing left was that the pistol had to receive the DLC finish. I am very...

    I have a build in the works using the Nighthawk IOS system. Originally, I was dead set on using a 1moa RM09 but now I’m thinking of going enclosed with a 509T. Does anyone know of, or use an RMR to 509T adapter that fits on an IOS RMR plate - and keeps the IOS rear iron sight.

    I sent in my EDC X9 a few weeks ago to Wilson for the optic cut on the slide, a magwell and a few other cosmetic changes. I decided to get the gray frame as the refinish once the do the magwell and had selected the DLC slide because I was very disappointed with the black AT finish on the slide...

    So I emailed Nighthawk this morning for a quote on a commander-length T4 chambered in .45 and was told, “We are only offering the models with small slides (<4.25”) in 9mm to achieve a consistent ejection, which is expected with Nighthawks.” I have to admit, I’m very disappointed. With the...

    Has the fit, finish, and overall quality of Nighthawk pistols varied over the years? Were early NHC better than recent builds? Is the opposite true? Were some years better or worse than others?

    I was wondering what the consensus was about what is a fair price for this?Nighthawk Custom Talon II 45 acp bobtail 3 mags - Semi Auto Pistols at GunBroker.com : 896299270 I was thinking how nice it would look refinished in smoked nitride with a solid medium trigger.

    No, not Bob Reeves (but he also made my day calling me to tell me my Falcon Commander is done. But that's another story) Bob Adkison (@Gripwright ) sent me these NH Grips for my Stippled Signature. I sent him the stock grips (bottom pic) to tweak with our ideas. I also sent him the MSH so he...

    This NH Classic Commander recently sold on Gunbroker. I fell in love with the look of it and almost bid on it. Have too many 9mm commanders so I held off. Also have two NH Classics, one stainless 9mm and one DLC 38 Super. Now I am thinking of sending the stainless slide to the mothership to be...

    Good afternoon folks! Been considering a new 1911, jumping back into the single stack world after a long hiatus. No rush, I'll execute when the time comes. Been through enough bad experiences with other guns in the past both military and privately owned 1911s. Grip safeties with poor fit...

    Worth a shot... Do you have a pair of these grips (NH Green G10 - see pic) that you would like to sale? Please let me know via PM. Thank you.

    So after having a great time with my Trooper, and have a President on order for my wife. I am thinking of getting a second one. I am a believer in one is none and two is one. The difficult part for me is deciding what do I want? I am narrowing down my choices to NH President or Bob Marvel...

    Exciting day! I’ve been lusting after an Agent 2 for awhile now, mainly so when the Tupperware crowd starts talking, I can ask them if they like Agent Arms and respond “I like them too, but on my nighthawk” 😂😂 very happy to say I got a deal done today! Traded an X9L I had picked up awhile ago...

    Nighthawk offers several models in the 3.8" barrel length. Has anyone ever seen or inquired about mating this to a FS commander frame? I've said before now, if that amazing Counselor model was offered in just a slightly longer 10rd version, I'd be all over it... but I'm wondering if something...

    Interested in trading my Nighthawk Heinie Longslide 10mm for a Nighthawk longslide 45acp with a light rail (ideally with a magwell too but it’s not a deal breaker). Can add some $ depending on the pistol. Incredibly accurate, just want to diversify my longslide calibers.

    Honest opinions from anyone who’s owned a mixture of these? I’ve done a ton of research and it seems WC is the most popular for quality, fit, finish. I’ve seen some beautiful NH. Currently own a EB that is a fantastic gun. Is it really just personal preference?

    Preface: I am just an enthusiast. I'm not a HSLD Operator, I don't compete, I can't even shoot all that well - but I enjoy the hobby and I appreciate a finely build firearm as most of us do. So none of my posts will have targets or accuracy comparisons, because all of the pistols I'd...

    Hello Fellow Addicts, After much deliberation, soul searching, and mixed feelings on this, I am going to sell off all but a handful of guns. I have some debt that is unrelated to firearms, and it would be much smarter to pay this debt off rather than have these just sit in my safe unused. I...
