Nighthawk Custom Shadow Hawk

posted on February 2, 2015

Nighthawk Custom has unveiled its newest series, Shadow Hawk, which boasts many of the subtleties expected from a custom 1911 builder. Heinie Ledge Black Tritium sights, a flat-faced trigger, machined-steel magwell/mainspring housing, V2 grips and nitrite finishing are just some of the features packed into the Shadow Hawk series. Designed with the end user in mind, Nighthawk has added front-strap checkering, a noticeably high undercut to the trigger guard, and a high beaver tail, signaling its custom feel. Trijicon electronic sights are also offered as an option, further customizing the pistol.


The Shadow Hawk is available in both Government and Commander sizes, a number of chamberings, and offers a broad list of options that will satisfy nearly all requirements for anyone looking to add a custom 1911 to his or her collection. For more information watch the video above or visit
