    Easy the correct answer is......YES!



    Seriously I have all you mentioned except the ACW so that is my next 1911, I can’t say firearm because I’m always looking for something new.

    I'm pretty much in agreement here.


    I'd put GIs first in fit, finish and often uniqueness.

    Nighthawk are great, but take a distinct second place to GI in all areas except aesthetic- which can be personal preference, so call that a tie.

    Wilson is fantastic in its own way but I wouldn't buy a Wilson for the same money as either of the other two. :)

    I'd say Alcemy over Wilson also just based on style, but this is the only brand I don't own.

    Les Baer is a Dark Horse due to exceptional value. I'd throw Ed Brown in here too.

    I can't choose a favorite, I shot them all today. Les Baer, Colt SCG, EB SF, Alchemy Prime Elite and my Nighthawk. I just feel happy to own them all : ) They each bring something a little different to the table. Oh and my recently acquired BHP was an absolute tack driver!

    Does anyone know if Nighthawk Custom goes by the original prints or are they doing their own thing? I tried dropping in a Wilson 9mm extractor into a Nighthawk Custom and the extractor hook was .010” too close to the breechface. Same thing happened with a Wilson .45 extractor in a .45 Nighthawk, once again .010” too close to breechface. Are they following different specs? Or is Wilson following different specs?
