Nighthawk Falcon

My dealer just got one of these in yesterday. I checked it out today when I picked up my Ruger.

Not all of it is to my taste, but Nighthawk's quality is outstanding, in my opinion.

They also got the Heinie Tactical Carry. It also looks and feels great, but the only Heinie 1911 I'd buy is one built by Richard Heinie. I never understood that stuff. I always liked the Vickers Tactical Nighthawk, but never considered it until it changed to the Enforcer.

I saw one of these on Sat at my dealer as well. Except for the top serrations, I do like it. I also like the way the front portion of the slide looks.

I have always liked the Heinie NH. Very good looking pistol.

It is a great looking 1911, Paul. Its just weird to have a Heinie gun that's not the real deal. At least, that's my opinion.

Agreed, but what's the cost of a Heinie? Honestly, I doubt I would spend the money on the NH. There are other guns I like better in that price range, but that's one of the better looking NHs in my opinion.

Nighthawks are pretty sweet. I wish my dealer stocked more high-end 1911s, if only for fondling purposes.

The Falcon is nice, but I like your Enforcer way better Brian.

$2,900.00 + Should work real well from the first round for that kind of money. I hope ?

Another ode to the Ruger P-Series?



I'm glad Ruger's SR1911 didn't go that route, as they have the provenance for it.

I like the original lines of the 1911 better.

I'm actually not even sure, but the Nighthawk version would be over $4K OTD.

That's too much for a semi-custom, in my opinion.

It has just about every feature that I like in a 1911. With a naked slide in hardchrome, it's right up my alley.

Seriously Brian, that's sweet. I've considered a Nighthawk, but the Monolith has been on my radar screen for quite some time.

I was thinking the same thing, naked slide. Maybe a black set of alumagrips too.
