Nighthawk Custom

The Shadow Hawk Government was designed with the help of Steve "Yeti" Fisher, formerly of Magpul Dynamics. Pulling from his background in law enforcement, training and his passion for competition, allowed a truly special pistol to be formed. The Shadow Hawk Government is a unique blending of the pistolsmithing skills at Nighthawk Custom along with Mr. Fisher, and the electronic sight geniuses at Trijicon. (When paired with the optional Trijicon RMR sight). Attention to detail starts with the one-piece machined steel magwell/mainspring housing for quick and sure reloading of the Shadow Hawk. You will notice the chiseled look and feel of the black, flat faced trigger preferred by competition shooters. The gun is topped front and rear with Heinie Ledge Straight Eight Tritium night sights. Your hands will quickly notice the high undercut on the trigger guard along with 25 LPI checkering on the front strap. The high beaver tail will amaze you with the almost seamless fit and finish. The black and gray spiral-cut G10 grips add a subtle highlight to the black Nitrite finish and the stainless bushing contrasts nicely with the slide and frame. The aggressive cocking serrations are not just for looks but provide a sure purchase to rack the slide. Finally, leaving nothing to chance, we have beveled and recessed the slide stop to allow for the addition of Crimson Trace Laser Grips if you so choose. Once you get the chance to use the Shadow Hawk Government, you will have a true appreciation for the experience and knowledge that went into this particular pistol.
