Nighthawk Custom

The Predator is the 1911 John Browning would have loved to have made. By eliminating the barrel bushing and installing a full-length guide rod and a coned (wafered) match grade barrel, accuracy is improved and recoil is reduced. The added weight to the muzzle along with the full length guide rod dampens the recoil and muzzle flip, which allows for faster follow up shots, giving the shooter a distinct advantage.

Nothing short of an engineering masterpiece, the fit between the integral barrel wafer and the slide is impeccably executed to appear as one, yet the two never contact each other.

The Predator is the perfect candidate for protection, uniform, competition, hunting and recreational employment. Mr. Browning would be envious.
