There's an interesting thread in the Nighthawk subforum discussing NH's gunsmiths: https://www.1911addicts.com/threads/nighthawk-gunsmiths.112069/page-4#post-1859429 Posted a question but it's slow traffic there. So... Most of us are familiar with Joe's barrel fit challenge and epic thread about it: https://www.1911addicts.com/threads/the-barrel-fit-challenge.52883/ Rightly, I'd say, Joe elects not to comment on specific 1911 makers in regards to their barrel fitting or performance in the challenge, but many have posted their results and some have identified the company or the 'smith. In some circles NH gets the nod right now as the top semi-custom company for "building them right", but I haven't seen much discussion regarding NH's barrel fit philosophy, approach or results. Anyone with insight or experience on how Nighthawk fares with barrel fitting?
