After my experience with Nighthawk I wouldn't touch one at any price.

Other than a problem with the extractor and POS ambi safety, mine is accurate. But next time I spend that much on another 1911 I'll deal with a company that treats it's customers with appreciation, and doesn't accuse them of lying..... especially over something as small as a safety.
I'll also deal with a company that rather than solve the problem, (posts in a different 1911 forum) if you don't like it sell it.

What Wilson Calls "Bullet Proof"

I think they stopped that a while back, Don.

I've got an Enforcer from 2008 and it doesn't have one. My Predator from 2007 does have the Kimber ambi.

Actually, in a case like my Enforcer, standard thickness non-beveled grips wouldn't fit correctly. The magwell is thin and part of the frame, not staked on or screwed on.

To the contrary, I don't think Les Baer offers any grips that are beveled, other than perhaps the Thunder Ranch thin grips.

good point Bac, as we know Les is a simplistic man. providing us with great semi-custom at the lowest price possible even if it means shipping them in cardboard boxes with only 1 magazine. logistic standpoint, the flat bottom grips works for both of his magwelled and non magwell 1911s. also great for his 2 piece magwell on and off.

Yeah, the grips are very plain - no diamonds, no beveling, just a full checkered no frills wood grip.

My Nighthawk Talon

Here is my Nighthawk Talon that I purchased a few years back. It is simply an amazing pistol! It is by far the most accurate and forgiving handgun I have ever owned. Click image for larger version
