    I already have couple of Glocks, a Sig, few others, but definitely wanted a 1911. After researching and saving for a while I bought this. The laser grip was already part of the package, but will probably replace them with a nicer set. At the range...love at the first pull of the trigger. Hands down the most accurate handgun I ever shot. LOVE IT!! Any recommendations for grips and a holster would be greatly appreciated.

    Very nice!!!

    Nighthawk makes an outstanding 1911.

    I'm with you on the laser. Never liked them and a set of wood grips would look great on that baby.

    Congrats again on a stellar 1911. :)

    You gotta love Nighthawks. :hearts:

    Congrats! One hell of a first 1911. I second the milt sparks VMII holster or the Stronghold Phoenix Holster from TT Gun Leather.

    Grips, man there's just so many it's all personal. I would personally try and find a set of stock Nighthawk grips that are to your liking.

    Thanks everyone for suggestions, links, and kind words. I'm so impressed with this 1911 that I'll be adding couple more soon.

    Absolutely beautiful, when I bought mine the dealer accidentally sent me a stainless Steel T3. I was so tempted to keep it, but returned it for the Talon. Maybe next one.....

    Very cool. The T3, I believe, is the only stainless 1911 Nighthawk builds.

    Those are actually both hard chromed. One being an Enforcer, the other a Predator. :)

    Most of them are small. The GRP has that ridiculous rollmark, but Nighthawk will leave it off if you want. :)

    I narrowed it to 4. I'm leaning toward Alumagrips (standard). Laser grips just don't look right. It's a nice feature, but the Novak night sights on this gun are amazing.
