    I might go out and get a lottery ticket with my luck this week. One of my SA Custom Carry's is on the way and I got an email from George at Gunslingers that my Enforcer is done.

    I had worries about the "ball-cuts" being lined up right, but from the pic I got, it's not a problem.

    It won't make it to me by Christmas, but I should have it by New Years. Maybe I'll do a SA vs NH at the range. I have about 3K worth of ammo loaded up so I'll have fun with my time off from work and school.


    Final Specs:

    Nighthawk Enforcer 5"
    DB Finish
    Single Side safety
    KART National Match barrel - Treated in Robar NP3 "Plus"
    EGW Thick Flange bushing and plug
    Heinie Ledge "Straight-8" rear sight - .140 opening
    Front tritium with white outline
    G10 Golfball Grips - Ranger Green
    No Rollmarks
    With Front cocking serrations
    S&A Grip Safety
    10-8 Long, Solid trigger
    Delete rear slide serrations
    Dawson Light Rail

    I think I'll have to agree. It has some very sweet features.

    I've been weary of NH in the past but never had any trouble with my Talon II. Hopefully my luck is on the up.

    Awesome! I hope mine has the same turn around time!!! I wanted to do a Predator/Enforcer build, but when it was all added up, it got pricey!! So I just did a Predator Recon build, but I did BD, No roll marks, FCS.. Im pretty excited.. Im happy for you

    Sounds sweet. If I ever do another factory built pistol, I want the weighted style barrel of the Predator/Wilson Tactical? Elite. Dunno why though.

    Hopefully yours will show up soon, I'll look forward to the pics.

    I only have 3 to go on my ordered list.

    I have a 69 Dodge Dart I'm restoring as well as a 90 Mustang that's my summer fun driver. I've been buying too many firearms and not working on them enough, so I'm not buying anything major for an indefinite time.

    I do want to get a build do by John Harrison some year.

    That is a very sweet looking pistol. I can't wait to hear what you think after you get it in your hands and shoot it.
