Really wanted to share some pictures of my little colt project i had Bob reeves at nighthawk help me with. I originally listed this colt hawk on the classifieds here. i was going to move on from it, but with the market so soft i decided to make it a little more special. I have always wanted to have a little bit of classy engraving on a 1911. So i got with Bob and though its not something they offer normally he was able to pull some strings and help me out on this one, with some “vip style” engraving. I love what nighthawk does with the colt hawks already so we improved on the slide to frame fit and added a heavy smoked nitride with the engraving. I think it turned out beautifully! bob and his guys did an outstanding job!!!!
Hope you guys enjoy these couple pictures i took, and if you guys have done anymore work outside the normal colt hawk work post some pictures would love to see them!!!!
Thank you fellas, i guess its kind of like a poor mans nighthawk vip 😂 but not really. Colt hawks were really great when they were cheaper, with being near the ACW territory, harder pill to swallow but still super awesome what nighthawk does to them!!!
thank you sir!!! it is part of the package when you do the colt hawk work at nighthawk. all it says on my build sheet is
Fit and blended NH beavertail grip safety
so i think its just nighthawks brand of grip safety,
i appreciate all the kind words fellas, got a few pm's from people asking about colt hawks in general and some interested in finding one. if im not mistaken Jess at @TheWichitaGunClub has some in the works at nighthawk, not sure if they are all spoken for. certainly wouldn't hurt to reach out if you're looking for one down the road!!!!
