OH NO!! Look at this abomination!!!

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)

Simple is good. I like everything but the barrel and the trigger.

Nice piece! Any chance to see it stripped (the barrel is bewildering to me)?

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.
