    Tuner, real nice write up....I hope it was the photos, but the finish certainly didn't look like it was holding up at all...Not sure I agree with his logic about the red dot safety "having to go...". Thanks for the heads-up...Isn't the location where Bill Wilson resides?

    For the price tag on these things, they ought to cook and clean as well. My only personal experience with Nighthawk was a 3 incher that couldn't run three magazines without a jam. The owner had already run several boxes through it and cleaned it a couple of times. The ammo was UMC 230 gr. ball. Magazines were the stock units. I understand that 3" 1911's have always had issues, and sometimes a mag just doesn't work right. But again, we're not talking about a Springer GI 3". If I had paid $2,800 like this guy did for that pistol, I'd have been beyond mad.

    I apologize if I offend anyone here, but I believe the Nighthawks are grossly over priced and overrrated. I'll not go into my finances or how much I have wrapped up in firearms, but suffice to say if I desired a Nighhawk, I could pick one up at any time. If I thought they were worth the rediculous price tag, I'd would have.
