Colt-Hawk

Hi folks,
I just received this great gun from NHC. It's a great value, and I'm thoroughly impressed. As an added bonus my favorite smith, Joe Lehr did the build.
Here are some pics, and thanks for looking!

That is a beautiful gun! If it wouldn't cause a divorce, I would pick up a Colt Classic in .38 Super and send it in for that package.

Very nice.

Do you know that there is already a multi page thread on this offering from NH?

Excellent!
I sent in my personal O1911C Classic the end of December. Waiting for completion of this work. Hope I get a call soon.

THAT makes it worth it even more. No matter who the smith is.
Cudos.

That is cool. I wish we could get those in California. I was thinking about picking up a blued SA Mil-Spec and sending it in for the same treatment.

The more I see these Colt's by Nighthawk the more I want one. They look to be very well done. I really like the way they make it look worn.

Just got mine today, it is everything I thought it would be. I gave up a couple of high end 1911s to get mine, but don't regret it at all. For those that are complaining about the fact that it does not have a slide to frame fit, I think you are missing out, lol. Mine rattles a little bit, but it doesn't bother me in the least.

So you dont think that's a LOT of coin for a Colt with no slide-frame fit?? Is slide-frame fit overrated?

I have had at least a couple of high end 1911s with slide to frame fit, and they could not make it through a 2 day USPSA match without malfunction. My personal opinion is that the finish and internal parts replacement is way more important to me. I like the slight rattle because I don’t worry about reliability when it’s dirty. That’s just an opinion of one person who carried a 1911 in the desert, and understand how environmental factors come into play in terms of reliability.

That makes sense. Wonder why all the fuss over it then.
