posted on May 3, 2018

Nighthawk Custom has doubled down on its partnership with Agency Arms, Railscales and Hillbilly 223—custom-grade purveyors of machined slides, stock panels and Cerakote finishes, respectively—by introducing the Nighthawk Custom Agent2. Despite being a budget buster, the Agent2 is well worth seeing as it exemplifies some of the highest-quality craftsmanship and high-end feature sets available in any pistol today. Built in Nighthawk’s traditional fashion—one gun, one gunsmith—the Agency-machined slide is hand-fit to the frame and barrel, Railscales G10 stocks provide purchase and personality, and the whole assembly is finished in Hillbilly 223’s Nighthawk Smoke Cerakote. The full-size 1911 can be had in either .45 ACP or 9 mm Luger, and it also features a Heinie Ledge rear sight paired with a fiber-optic front, a lightened Recon-style accessory rail on the dustcover, and a one-piece mainspring housing/extended magazine well assembly. nighthawkcustom.com
