    That's bad golfballing if I've ever seen it.

    Here's how it should be done. :thumbsup:

    only reason I would get it is for the fact that it is rare..

    There is a good reason they are so rare, Nighthawk must know that no one will buy the damn things :supergrin::supergrin::supergrin:

    I had a chance to handle one of these last week when I was at Nighthawk in AR. It is different....that is for sure. I think it is even kind of cool, although I don't know that I would actually buy one. I will say this much...Knight's Armament makes some of the best AR's....I have one of their SR-15's and it is a bad dude.....

    I think Buds had the pair when I was there a few weeks ago. Didn't really look at it since they were on the wall behind the counter.

    The SR-15 would be worth keeping because you could change the dimpled grip and rail covers, the dimpled barrel is nice. The nighthawk really does not do it for me, and quite frankly I think it is ass ugly. I would sell that off right away and spend the money on ammo and stuff for the SR-15.

    Disgusting. But some basement ninja will buy them and post all about them...with out firing a shot.

    Save your money and buy a 6920 and a TRP, then use the spare change to buy ammo and training. Of coarse this is a foreign idea to most.

    Huh...and I thought it was just GOD awful. :rofl:

    IMO goofy flutes and blood grooves are best left to basement fondler's and gun lookers. Nothing to do with shooting and a waste of money.:upeyes:

    I couldn't imagine taking that pair to a LV or PR training. I have tough skin, but even I don't think I could take that type of ribbing.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    That is funny, I don't care who you are!!

    Actaully it would be fun to take a class with them. Just showing up in some pink Chuck Taylors, a peace sign doo-rag, with a flower pinned to you vest, and toting them guns would be a hoot............
