Yeah, it will be a cold day in hell before that goes.

I had a couple of wrinkles in my purchase but none was a quality issue. When I read their statement with respect to their standard ambi safety and warranty exclusion, I asked for a different design and that was installed on my gun and eight others ordered by my dealer at the same time. Any and all issues I with the transaction were taken care of easily and with no unpleasantness whatever. Everywhere I take the gun, it attracts other shooters who invariably are impressed. The owner of one of the clubs where I shoot told me he has never seen a better 1911 at that range.

It may have been been posted before but here is my Predator II:

I have two Nighthawk pistols, and I think both are amazing. Fit, finish, reliability, accuracy - all are superb.

The guns are great. In my experience, the people making the guns are great. The people interacting with the customers - maybe not so much. I was taken care of properly on the one issue I had, but the communication side of things leaves a lot to be desired. But, at the end of the day - my pistols are fabulous and to me that's really what matters most. They combine the features and specs that I wanted, and the end results of those guns were perfect to me. If I go for another high zoot 1911, it will be either a Wilson or a Guncrafter though - one for something a little different, and two for a better customer experience from the people side of things.

I have 2, predator II and T3. One made in 08 and 1 in 09, both perform flawlessly.

Very nice Very happy with Wilson so far but those NHs are very tempting. The Guncrafters looks nice but I am too much of a wimp for 15-20 LPI checkering!

Thanks! Wilson makes GREAT pistols, and honestly I am VERY impressed with the latest Armor Tuff pistols I have seen - one of the reasons I went with Nighthawk originally, so I could get IonBond.

I would really like to handle a Guncrafter, I think the 15lpi is a little flattened, which to me would feel pretty sweet!

The Guncrafter checkering isn't all that sharp. Its gives a very nice grip without feeling overly rough.

Pics please, Nighthawks are expense but fantastic guns. Their customer service is pretty good as well.

I wouldn't touch another Nighthawk. I would go for Wilson, Baer or Springfield Custom if I wanted another expensive 1911.
Personally, I don't think $3000 1911's should have Kimber parts in them, unless they are made by Kimber.
Back in December I was considering a Nighthawk as a Christmas present for myself. After reading about your experience with the company on this and another forum, I decided to have Heym build me a 30-06 instead.

Good call.
Seriously, why have a 1911 built by a company that has as much negative feedback as Nighthawk, when there are so many other, established companies, who have stellar reputations for service?
You expect quality when you pay for it, so a true test of a "high end" company, is the service you get after the sale, should you need it.
In my case, Nighthawk was a giant FAIL.
