Falcon reborn

I decided to take a trip for my birthday to the Ozarks. Slight turn to Nighthawk Customs in Berryville, Ar... Stayed in beautiful Eureka Springs.

Month or so ago, I sent my Falcon in to the original builder for a face lift. I am second owner. It left NH in 2013 with a black slide and olive drab green frame. Evidently, the owner got sick of the green and had the whole gun cerakoted. Normally most of their black 1911s are Nitride. So I had them re- nitride the whole gun back to orig look. I changed out the g10 grips with another set of NH grips with a pewter NH emblem. I removed the rear Heine site, (hated it) and installed a Trij rear. While it was there, had them install new ss barrel and had it gold tin coated. They fine tuned everything and test fired it. At the advice of the builder, why not blacked the barrel bushing and trigger. It would look awesome. Gave him the ok. They had everything ready by time I arrived.

These are awesome people. The facility is huge and top notch! I would recommend them to anyone.

Here are some before and after shots.


When bought....




Then to this by me......




Now......






Canít wait to shoot it!

Falcon reborn

I also have an Agent 2 in 9mm but its still 2 months out. Ugh.
It will be like below but no fiber sights. Trij HD will replace them.
Photo is of their orig design in 45acp with the fiber sights.

She looks great, the blackened out trigger really stands out, I like it. Eureka Springs is one of my favorite eclectic little towns, road signs that say "crooked and steep", hot spinning hippie chicks everywhere and dogs :-) Tell um I said "hey" at Chelsea's s next time through :-)
Will be watching for the range report...
