I was at the range yesterday - shooting my Custom Shop Springer (I also went on Saturday and shot it). Anyway, some guy was shooting a new T3 Nighthawk (it was his first range trip with the gun). When I asked him about it, he offered to let me put a few rounds thru it. I had never shot a gun with Heine sights before. I prefer 3 dot sights, but the sights worked well. I HATE big dot sights, but the Heine sights were not bad... Better than I thought they would be. The guy claimed he wished he had gone with 3 dot sights on the gun, though. He said that was the only change he'd make. Anyway, the guns hot pretty nice. I'm really only into fullsize 1911s, personally. But, the recoil wasn't bad. His only complaint was that the casings were getting scratched by a mag catch that was too long (he claimed it was rubbing the rounds as they moved up the mag). That's a new one on me, but he showed me tiny scratched on the case lips on unfired bullets. Anyway, if I buy any future semi customs, it will likely only be from Ed Brown or Springfield custom, but it was a very nice gun.
