    How about a gun real people can afford?

      They did a review of the 1911 Remington R1 Enhanced a few weeks ago on here. The Remington is a nice 1911 that most can afford. I agree that the majority of people cant afford it, I am one of those people but that doesn't mean we shouldn't get to see these higher priced guns. So please stop your whining! Shooting Times does a good job with reviewing the top end guns and the bottom end when it comes to affordability.

    Why single action? How does the first shot from a holster feel?

    • Bob

      John,

      it's a 1911. You carry it cocked and locked. First shot is single action also

    I like to see the custom guns. I decided some time ago that I may not have a lot but I will have the best. Instead of having five or six factory guns I would rather have one or two that were made for me alone. Same applies to rifles and shotguns. I may not have many but I shoot what I do have more because I dont have to chose which one to take to the range that day.

    I have always liked 1911 in 45ap 5 inch barrels. I have fired the 1911 since 1963 and have owned a Remington GI and Springfield Mil-Spec. For firepower and to stop anything this is my choice. Keep sending the reviews of other 1911 45ap on the market.

    I have about 800 hundred rounds through this Nighthawk model. It's unusually enjoyable to shoot and is oh so smooth. I love the damn thing. My only problem with it is the name. I wish they'd quit calling it a LadyHawk so I wouldn't feel so weird when I go to reach for it. I love budget 1911s as much as the next guy, but if you're a shooter and you give this Nighthawk a chance, you'll see that the hand-fit quality and premium materials and finish you pay for is hard to miss—even if you know little about guns. The hours of labor hand-build procedures along with the materials they select doesn't allow Nighthawk to mass produce $500-$800 1911s. Nighthawk customers do benefit from the care and expertise of those working on each high quality part at the bench. Everyone should have a Nighthawk penciled on their bucket list. That's my opinion.

    Best,

    Eric

    My Daughter owns a S and P Smith and Wesson and loves it. She is shooting over 100 rounds a week She loves it.

    I got tired of junkers and clunkers and went ahead and bought one. Now I have a gun worth keeping, an heirloom, a piece admired by the other shooters, a grouping I can't blame the gun on, a piece I can carry AND use at the IDPA shoots, and all the above. When I first got it, it was a nightmare. (The extractor wasn't tuned right.) Nighthawk paid shipping both ways and I never had another bit of trouble with it. Its a Ladyhawk. She's my sweetheart, and I love her.
