ISO The Very Best 1911's
This pistol was originally built in 2007 as a light custom by Mark Graff with machining support by the great Chuck Rogers. I have confirmed the details with both parties. After some light usage, it was completely rebuilt, refinished and upgraded by Nighthawk Custom in 2019.

Install Nighthawk thumb safety

Dehorn, prep and refinish in Black Nitride (except for bushing, hammer, sear and trigger)
The pistol is stunning. It wears Ahrends figured wood grips and the nitride is a beautiful smooth deep satin finish. It has a crisp 3# trigger pull with Wilson hammer and sear.
It appears "like new" since the NH custom work with only signs of testfire.
I have all NH paperwork and test targets. I do not have the Graff/Rogers invoices but do have correspondence from both.
The barrel is “hard fit” tight but the slide/frame has a smooth slide to frame fit for best reliability with low powered practice ammunition. It is proven 100% reliable with the supplied CMC 9mm magazine
$2750 shipped with nylon case and 1 magazine.
