The 2017 Line-Up: Nighthawk Custom

2017 is turning into an exciting year for the firearm industry

Nighthawk Custom, a company that since 2004 has been masterfully pushing the 106 year old John Browning legend to an artistic mechanical pinnacle, is riding that new years wave with their 1911 additions.

Let’s have a look.

Border Special

The Border Special is a commander size 1911 in .45 ACP. True to format a 4.25″ Barrel, rounded mainspring housing, front and rear grip serrations, and double diamond cocobolo grips combine with gold dot sights on a forged steel frame. The 8 shot Border Special is ready for a concealed carry or open assignment and is set to deliver on every expectation.

The Bull

While The Bull is a classic Government 5″ it employs a serious design change. In place of the traditional barrel bushing The Bow Tie Plug and the more and more favored bull barrel lock up allow a rounded cut on The Bull’s muzzle. The Bull Nose Cut aids in holstering and gives this 1911 a sleek smooth look. In parallel form the front strap and mainspring housing use a rounded horizontal style of stippling that minimizes the pistol’s likelihood to snag during draw while still providing the extra traction on your hands during firing. Topped off with Straight 8 tritium night sights and a straight shot through the grip panel for your thumb to actuate the magazine release…

Hats off to The Bull

Nighthawk Carry

One for the 9mm fans the Nighthawk Carry combines a 3.8″ Bull Barrel lock up, tritium night sights, G10 grips, into a compact Officer frame. The forged aluminum base with precision LPI checkering and rounding applied to the slide and frame help this pistol carry comfortably and shoot even more so.
