    I took a long time to find a special set of grips for this new to me Nighthawk Classic and finally came across these from Bob Adkison of Cherokee Hills Exotic Grips. The pistol is stainless steel finished in DLC which subtly changes in appearance with the type of lighting, especially sunlight. These grips do the same and the hand stippling that follows the feathered grain caused them to be named "The Raptor" set which seemed particularly fitting to go on a NHC. I left the magwell cut alone because I might decide to add one down the road. IMG_2391.jpg

    Very good looking match. Really glad those “Raptor” Grips ended up on a NHC.

    Great looking grips. A magwell would give it that extra.

    Thank you, sir! I was kinda hoping these would go on a Nighthawk.

    Wow! How fitting that those Raptor grips ended up on a Night Hawk. I’ve been watching those grips! I knew somebody would snatch em up. Bob’s a great guy, a true atist. I can not say enough good things about him. I have two set’s of his art and am trying to find something really special and unique from him to replace the cheese graters on my DW Combat Specialist. I know he’ll come up with something cause that’s his thing, special and unique.

    At any rate, that is one beautuful bird gun you got there. I think they really set off the gun’s finish. A magwell would be the cherry on that ice cream Sunday!
