Falcon owners questions pics etc

I have not owned a Nighthawk in sometime and I have been looking at a few used Falcons.

What can you tell me about yours?

Pics?

I have been carrying my Guncrafter and a Wilson Protector, but just have been thinking about something different. Even worse I have been carrying a G19 Gen5 with an RMR on it, lol.

Just wanting to get some thoughts from some Falcon owners, thanks.

Mine has been great. It has all the features and aesthetics I like (carry cuts are beautiful IMO). Reliable ... mine is a 5" 45. It is a gun I will never part with.

AWMP,
I wish I knew how to post pics, tech ignorant lol. I own a 5" in 45 and a couple in 10mm and I have a commander Falcon in 10mm. I don't think you will go wrong with one at all.

I have a Falcon Commander in 9mm built by Travis Gregory. This may be my most cherished pistol. I will have to post a photo later

I just bought this one, could not pass it up. Just going to change the short trigger to a solid medium one.

I have already changed the pistol a little.

New stainless Nighthawk recoil plug. One of my pet peeves is not having the recoil plug the same color as the bushing.

New G10 Grips. The Nighthawk G10s are thicker than standard. This is not a safe queen but a carry pistol.

The Nighthawk night sights are good and still bright (2014) but they are being changed out for my standard setup on Guncrafters, Nighthawks and even Glocks (sorry about that last word, lol), Trijicon HD Yellow front and 10-8 Black rear.

Changed out the trigger to a Nighthawk Medium solid trigger. The small trigger is just to small for me.

Working on getting a set of Ebony, double diamond, checkered grips made and then will have Nighthawk medallions installed in them.

Then I will be done, LOL.

I got mine last fall. I liked it so much I decided to send it back for some custom touches. I got ball mill cuts in the end of the slide, slots in the barrel hood, a French border, Dawson adjustable rear sight, and gold bead front sight installed. Their work is flawless. Now it is a very special gun to me made to my personal specs. It is the most accurate thing that I have ever held in my hand. I have over a thousand rounds through it so far without any sort of a malfunction or problem of any sort. I will never part with it and doubt that I will ever go to the range without it in my bag.

It is their regular black nitride. It looks a little fuzzy above the trigger guard because I photoshopped the serial number out.
