    Many have probably seen this if you look in thee classified much (very dangerous thing to do).

    I recently picked up another Nighthawk. A Falcon this time though. This is my second gun built by Joey Lehr, and like the first one, it is frickin' awesome. If you are reading this, Congrats Joey (ask for a raise).

    This one has a few different twists to it. The slide is bare, save the NHC logo on the rear. It has a rail. And it also has a flanged barrel like a Predator would.

    I haven't got to shoot it yet, but I expect great things from it.

    Congrats RJ...that thing looks awesome! I just got home from the range with my son...put about 150 reloads thru my Falcon. I really like the logo on the back of the slide like yours, wish mine was like that!

    Thanks guys. This one was just to awesome to pass up. I had been getting away from 45acp, but figured in a 5in with a flange I could probably handle it. Now just need to find time to get to the range.

    You're gonna love it at the range. Those coned/flanged barrel 1911's shoot completely different. I LOVE the two I have.

    Thanks. I'm with you on the flange. I had a Predator before and really liked it. I also have a Wilson Pro with the flange in 9mm. It feels like I am shooting a 380

    I've always been intrigued by the flanged barrel. Does it change the recoil impulse or is the weight transfer a little different? They look awesome for sure. I assume the lockup is tighter due to it. How would you describe the difference in feel? I'm basically ignorant on the subject and genuinely curious.

    In general, I don't like rails unless it's on a gun used as a tool. This gun would not be a tool for me. However, this gun just rocks. No two ways about it!

    Now I gotta go load some mags for a range day. My lame, stock Falcon will be in the bag :)

    There's nothing lame about a "normal" Falcon. I ain't ashamed to say that I envy a lot of you guys and your guns. Have a great range trip!

    Very nice set up for sure! Never shot one with a barrel such as yours but it does look sick! I have a Falcon built by the great Brian Chaney (He should ask for a raise also!) and it is by far my favorite 1911 in my arsenal. MY opinion , and my opinion only, the Falcon just as it comes reflects the best that Nighthawk has to offer. Very nice Falcon!

    Whoever thinks NHC doesn't build full on customs needs to look at this. I have the hots for your gun! I have never seen a better integration of a rail on a pistol. I usually don't like them, but it looks like it belongs on your pistol.

    The Falcon is also my favorite NHC. I had no idea they would go this far on customization. You did an outstanding job specifying on this build.

    What sights did you get?
