I was able to work out a deal and take this home today, a Nighthawk Dominator. It's freakin gorgeous and I can't wait to get it to the range and see what it can do, the fit and finish are everything you'd expect from a very high end 1911.

On the downside, I'm out of HK's as they (along with a Sig 238 and a SW 642) went with cash to fund the Nighthawk. I'll miss the HK's but in reality their prices are dropping as the VP9 comes out and as much as I like them they're still polymer guns and a polymer gun isn't as fun or accurate (IMO) for ME. I will say that an HK45 is, as far as I'm concerned, the very best polymer gun ever made. The HKP30 being second best. Just excellent guns, accurate, low recoil, nice triggers, and both of mine after thousands of rounds look brand new and brought looks-like-brand-new guns prices when I sold them.

My most accurate 1911 is my SW performance center 1911 (which I think is because of not only the incredible tight hand fitting and lockup, but the titanium spherical bushing), but I've read several things on the Nighthawk that claim the Dominator is goofy accurate so I'm very interested in seeing how they shake out.

With my 4 1911's all being high end models I'm thinking the next thing is to buy a base SA and build one myself just for the experience of doing it.

On to the pics, just cell phone shots for now. I'll have more to post on it when I get it to the range.

Jealous!

I plan on having a Nighthawk in the future. They are IMO the most gorgeous 1911's on the market. Awesome gun!

Thanks guys, and you might be too attached to your Glocks if seeing a Nighthawk makes you think "hey let's say something about Glocks".
