    Looking to acquire my first NHC. Thought I'd ask here.
    An optioned out GRP or the Classic?
    I really am liking the Classic, although there are a few specs that I feel are not necessary for me. Thought I save a little by going with a GRP. However, an optioned out GRP might get me close to the Classic in $s. George is working on some pricing for me, should know later this week.
    I know the Classic uses a SS frame and slide. Can anyone tell me if it's the same for the GRP?
    Thanks for reading?
    Merry Christmas everyone, and God Bless.

    Nighthawks will be stainless unless it’s a blued gun or specified by the customer to be built as carbon steel. GRP is the best starting point for most custom orders.

    Pick the gun you want and option it out from there.
    When it's all said and done, the difference in price will be minimal.
    Good luck in your quest

    I'm really digging the Classic look and it's amazing what a set of grips do to a SS Marvel. Have a darker set I recently bought for mine from Nighthawk that another forum member recently posted. Keep em coming fellas. Imitation is the greatest form of flattery!

    classic is a great choice with out any other options

    if you want a custom gun--start with a Talon. you won't need too many options

    good luck

    I've owned both. I preferred the Classic, tbh.

    The classic and grp are at opposite ends of the spectrum.
    To say one is preferred over the other is truly subjective
