    I'm considering purchasing a Nighthawk War Hawk that has the Jardine Tactical Hook already installed. Sounds like a great sight, but if I don't like it, are there other options with the same cut? The NHC rep said it's unique to the Jardine but I thought that just may mean with what they carry in house. Thanks!

    They were made for the Novak dovetail, Bomar and Kimber dovetail cuts when they came out 5 or 6 years ago. The War Hawk looks like it has a Bomar style dovetail cut from the picture I seen. I don't know if they have more than one option available. Best bet is to shoot them an email and find out exactly what dovetails they are using and if there is more than one being used.

    I was under the impression there was only one style of tactical hook made, and they were for a Bomar sight cut. Harrison and 10-8 make fixed sights that work with a bomar style cut. You can also get adjustable bomar clones from most major manufacturers.

    Thanks! I had asked NHC about Bomar and they said no but I'm going to double check with a second person based on this info.

    To close out in case anyone reads this in the future while the Tactical Hook can be modified to be installed into a bomar, these from NHC are installed into a cut unique to the Tactical Hook.
