    My collection was drifting into areas that were never a focus and somehow I ended up with this beautiful Kestrel that only made it to the range a few times. I often said this wasn't my favorite gun but more than likely the best gun I owned as the Nighthawk build quality is just exceptional and the accuracy made my average shooting skills noticeable improved.

    It's a beautiful bead-blasted stainless steel and has host of Heine touches on this classic style commander 1911

    • Caliber: 9mm/ Match Grade Crowned and Recessed Barrel
    • Reduced Overall Frame Circumference
    • Magazine well beveled for insertion
    • Heinie Slant Pro Straight Eight Night Sights
    • Hand Serrated Rear of Slide
    • Heinie Signature Scalloped front strap and Mainspring Housing
    • Forged Frame and 4.25" Slide
    • Tactical Checkered Extended Magazine Release
    • Mainspring Housing contoured for ease of carry
    • Serrated Slide Top
    • Recessed Slide-release
    • Naked Slide w/ NH logo on each side
    Gun will include everything it shipped with and 3 Wilson ETM 10 round magazines and 4 sets of grips, black, rosewood and two sets of burlwood (light and dark). The dark burlwood are not pictured but are a simply darker version of what's on the gun in the final picture

    Note: the only blemish I could find is the slight emergence of an idiot scratch you can clearly see by clicking on the first picture and enlarging it.

    $3,000

    Great looking pistol, really like the looks of VZ frag grips on it.

    How grippy is the Scalloped front strap and Mainspring Housing compared to 25lpi checkering?

    I'm not sure how it compares but the scallops are pretty damn nice, plenty of control but it will not irritate the hands. And they are different than what you normally see which was primarily my attraction to this gun along with the naked slide.

    Sorry, marked sold.

    BTW, as everyone knows, Addicted2gunz is a great guy. Just the type of addict you want to do a trade/buy/sell with. I have the CCO GI now, GI build quality is just so special and he'll be getting the Nhawk today.
