Details

Handguns are called handguns for a reason; they’re designed to be shot by hand. So, it only makes sense that a handgun should fit the hand that’s shooting it. Working with master pistolsmith Richard Heinie, Nighthawk Custom has created what might be the ultimate concealed carry 1911. The grip frame on the Kestrel is one you won’t want to let go of. It has been thinned at the front and back, comes with slender stocks, and is matched to a commander length slide for ease of concealment. It fits your hand like Dad’s old hammer and carries like Grandpa’s pocketknife.
One Gun, One Gunsmith.
Fully Machined Series (FM)
This product has been proudly manufactured at our factory in Berryville, Arkansas, USA.
