Sike!!!

Well some will probably think it is, but this is my first purchase from Nighthawk.
It is their predator model w/ the heavy coned barrel w/ railed frame.
Custom sheet was pretty basic considering this thing comes laid out, but it has:
-Ionbond's Diamond black finish(WHICH IS UNREAL BTW)
-10-8 flat trigger
-heine ledge NS
-recessed slide stop
-No roll marks, but I do have the "HAWK" on both sides behind the cocking serrations.

The gun is simply unreal! I can mag dump from 10 yards away and easily keep them all in the -0 of an IDPA target, it feels like cheating!!!
The gun feels completely different than my Wilson. It is not tight like a Wilson, but is fit equally as good. The slide racks a lot easier with hammer down than on my WC. The only thing I noticed with the gun when i initially played with it was that there was a little play in the TS when it was depressed, but I shot 400 rounds through it and it is no longer there?
This one is not going to get beat anywhere near as much as my CQB does, but It would definitely hold up to it. The DLC is probably one of the nicest mixtures of finishes I have ever seen. It changes color's with use, oil, etc like parkerizing does, but it is rock solid! My buddy who also has the same gun, has 4200 rounds out of his and it has been in and out of a RCS Phantom probably double that, the only wear on the entire gun is in the magwell.

Heres a picture of my gun and gear. Holster and carriers are from Raven Concealment Systems(Amazing stuff by the way, if you havent tried any of their products)

LOL what does the trigger have to do with simplicity? I could see the idea saying that about the barrel because it's harder to strip in the field, but I understand how the trigger makes it complicated.

Essentially it is like a bull barrel that also has a flanged cone up front in order to reduce recoil. Not really like a compensator, but more just putting weight in the right areas of the gun. Wilson and Nighthawk both have models like this.

If you want to see it stripped, go to youtube and google Wilson Tactical ELite. It is same premise, just different company.

That's exactly what they are. I have a mixture of them and CMC's, but prefer the WC's much more.

Ive had to take some of the plastic of the CMC basepad in order to get them to work w/ my guns w/ magwells.

It is the PhantomLC. Their holsters are extremely specific, When I got mine, they asked if i was using Surefire's rail lock or the U-latch.

Mine has the "magpul cut" which is straight drop w/ reduced body shield, in coyote.

They are definitely the best holster OWB I have used. With 8 round mags, this gun can be carried quite often because of how close it rides. You can also get different mounting options to go IWB.

It will end up like this, and BTW, the Raven is a great holster but rides VERY high.

I wasn't saying the trigger was complex; they were two separate statements.

I like how clean and simple the gun looks, without a lot of "visual noise". I wouldn't mind having a pistol built like that, I'd just go with a rounded trigger rather than the straight one.

Round trigger? Humm, that has to be difficult on your finger.


I think you meant to say curve trigger. :tongueout:

Mine was actually a special order, but just because of the barrel system. Nothing else is special. If you want to order one, just designate 5"1911 w/ whatever light you have. Then color and specify cut.

Like someone else mentioned. RCS' do run high. If you shoot competitively and take it seriously, id stick with bladetech, comp tac, or garrett. These are more designed for Mil/LEO, but are suprisingly great options for CCW. Also they are very modular, when you place your order gets some soft loops as well and you can transition to IWB.
Lead times are currently at 16-18 weeks. They are worth the wait and money, if you do not want to wait that long, check out shieldedholsters.com. He has a design of RCS' stuff as well as the Hybrid iwb holsters. His stuff is very nice. I have a few of his holsters, none for a 1911, but for all my other guns that I carry

Thank you! I am pretty proud of it. The craziest part about this gun is what happened after I ordered it. One of my best friends decided to order one while oversees. I didnt talk to him for about 7 months while he was deployed. He came home on leave after christmas and gave me a call and stopped into the shop. When he got there, he lifted his shirt and pulled out a Predator and said check out my new gun! I laughed and said we have good taste cause I just ordered the same gun w/ pretty much the same specs. The only thing he had different on his was:
no rollmarks/no logo
curved solid trigger
T3 style magwell
fo front/10-8 rear
and he uses arched msh's

So it is pretty cool that just by chance I ordered the same model w/ almost the exact same specs.
