Nighthawk Custom is guaranteed to come up in any discussion of where one can find the best 1911 available. A quick stroll through their SHOT Show booth this year left no doubts as to why. I tried to snap photos of many of the standouts, but, unfortunately, the trade show floor lighting in the area of Nighthawk’s booth was horrible, so most of these pics don’t even do the guns or the custom work justice.
Many of the guns on display featured unique texturing in various areas either to provide increased grip or to reduce glare.
Note the texture on the underside of the slide stop, on the magazine release, and under the trigger guard. It was also on top of the slide and on the hammer spur.
Nighthawk is also importing Korth revolvers, so add them to the “best revolvers available” discussion, too.
The 9mm Sky Hawk.
