I have been looking for a 5" 1911 that suits me. Never owned a 1911 so this is all new to me. Today I fondled a Nighthawk T3, used in near mint condition. I was impressed. I had a hard time walking away with out buying it. Darn, I am already thinking about whether or not I will still want a 5" after buying the T3. So what do you think about Nighthawks quality? Anyone own a T3? Hmm, now that I looked on Nighthawk's web site and see the list price ($2,699.00) perhaps $2359 is not such a great deal on a used gun. Then the guy said there is haggle room with cash.
