    Bob was kind enough to show me the completed Colt series 70 they've been working on. I think it came out great:) Thanks to Bob and Tyler for helping with this build. They posted it on NH's Facebook page, so here's the basic specs.

    Machined vertical serrations on front strap and back strap
    French borders on slide
    Tightened slide/frame fit
    Installed match barrel bushing
    Match trigger job with Nighthawk trigger components and a Harrison Design retro spur hammer
    Bobbed beavertail grip safety
    Flush and reverse crown barrel
    Full prep/dehorn
    Black DLC finish with polished flats
    Fully blended Yost gold bead front sight
    Serrated retro rear sight from Harrison Design



    This little 9mm is a new addition as well.

    I love that first Colt! Looks great, I love seeing retro inspired builds.

    The second one is a beauty as one, really nice two tone.

    Very nice! I would like to spec out a falcon similar to that but can’t decide on caliber.

    I picked 9mm just because I have a few 45s already. I'd pick which one you'd shoot the most.

    I have been on a full size 45 kick lately so will likely go that route but the front end of that in 9 looks phenomenal with the thick bushing and I’m sure it’s a soft shooter. Want to do the clean slide, black out and those grips but a different finish. Very nicely done builds you have there!

    Thanks. I'd go with your gut and get the 45. I went hard chrome on the frame and black nitride on the rest.

    Those are both gorgeous, each in their own way. That retro build is exceptional! That may be the first of NHC's work on a retro I've seen.

    Two fantastic guns. I can't think of a nicer guy to be able to acquire them. Congratulations.

    Nighthawk is putting out some of the finest work there is by a factory. Those are wonderful guns. I decided that I need a NH in my life, I just have to decide what guns to sell first.

    It’ll be worth it. After I bought my first one it only took about a month for my second.
