I'm an RSO at our local club. I "worked" at a Wilson and Nighthawk event where folks could handle and shoot about 20 various models of firearms. I personally shot a Nighthawk Falcon, Wilson EDC X9, Ken Hackathorn and Nighthawk Vickers model. I was carrying my Dan Wesson ECP and I have a few other DW's: Two Specialists and a Government A2 (blued). Each Wilson and Nighthawk were at least $2000 more than what was on my hip. I hate to be the "pearls before swine" guy, but I really didn't see what a customer was getting for an additional two grand. I saw a few more bevels here and there, but the overall fit and finish didn't seem superior in any way. In my career, I manage a team of product managers that oversee some very, very high-end product and I have a pretty discerning eye. Keep in mind, I am NOT a DW fanboy, in fact, I've posted some pretty critical things about them on the other 1911 forum. I was all set to see a Wilson or Nighthawk, fall in love with it and then dump two DW's to fund getting it, but I didn't see or shoot anything that motivated me to do so. It was a fun time and good experience to be able to handle such fine 1911's though. YMMV...just one man's opinion. I'd certainly like to see peoples take on my experience though.
