    Nighthawk Thunder Ranch Combat Special in 9mm.
    TRN0089


    Just picked this TR up a few days ago. I've had out once and put 100 through it. Handloads, +P Hornady and Maxx Tech all shot perfect. No issues of any kind.
    THIS GUN SHOOTS SMOOTH AS SILK!!

    However, a 1911 in 9mm is not my cup of tea. Ammo runs out too quick! I love to shoot fast when shooting in 9mm. I was able to stay on target shooting weak side one handed and I was rapid firing! With a 10 round mag the fun is over very soon. But this does help me practice quick mag changes. :shy:

    This gun was purchased for range duty. I believe 9mm in a 2011 or most likely a CZ will serve me better. If I was going to carry this gun I would not be selling. Also the collectibility factor makes me a little hesitant to sell. I'm not sure of how many NH is planning to build in the 9mm.

    Shipped from my FFL to yours insured. $3,375
    (sorry no trades..unless it's for a NH TRS Comp)

    I spoke about this with Bob at Nighthawk Custom a while back. He says it's no problem making it a 38S/9mm combo. The extraction port would have to be enlarged some and possibly refinished.

    It's definitely a looker. I want one but unfortunately I'm poor o_O. GLWS shouldn't take long.

    @KMAC, I know I just got it right? If it were a double stack,.. but then it wouldn't be a Thunder Ranch Combat Special.

    I also am planning to sell my Guncrafter NN 38S/9mm whenever I get it back from Alex Zimmermann. It's getting a flat trigger, gold bead and blacked out.

    As far as a 1911 goes I finding that I'm liking it in 38 Super, .45 and 10mm. 10mm being my prefered caliber. When I'm shooting a nine it's for fun and I want to shoot fast. Kinda like drinking chocolate milk. :smile2:

    For any potential buyers @OldCuz and @Dwe, with anyone else having shot one, can attest these are the most incredible shooting 1911s. I too put too many rounds at a time down it. Told my wife I had a bit of buyers remorse leaving the range one day having shot way more then I was expecting. She laughed and asked just think why you did it and I smiled and knew she was right no remorse.

    It is perfection, slide is like glass, every piece is just perfectly fit, and every test target I have seen has one hole. I do not know why or how but nighthawk got it perfectly right with these in 9mm.

    I can’t believe you are selling and I can’t imagine selling mine. If I did I know I would be chasing perfection like this forever and regret it.

    Good luck with sale.

    If this gun was in Kalifornia I’d be on it like white on rice after reading what @KMAC wrote.
