Nighthawk Custom

In conjunction with the design of the full-size War Hawk® Recon and War Hawk® Government, we developed a carry gun built to Nighthawk's exacting standards, the War Hawk® Compact. This model has many of the same features as the full-size model. The slide has the same unique multi-faceted slide top and top serrations that come to an arrow point as the full-size model. The Compact model also incorporates the EVERLAST™ Recoil System that allows shooters to go over 10,000 rounds without a recoil spring change. This model is the first model to include our brand new, fully machined Officer size, one piece mainspring housing /magwell. This model comes standard with Heinie Slant Pro night rear sight and a Tritium front sight as well as a solid aluminum match-grade trigger. The War Hawk Compact is not only a beautiful gun, but a great choice for a daily carry weapon.
