    As I had finally decided on picking up a Sig Tac Ops that I'd been eyeing lately and was headed there to get it, my phone rang and my FFL said the Nighthawk Falcon that I recently traded for landed today. Picked them both up and headed to the range. The Falcon is a very accurate shooter and the Sig isn't too far behind. The trigger on the NH is better, but not by leaps and bounds. The Falcon has always been one of my favorite Nighthawks ever since I first saw one. I has just about every option I would order on a semi-custom 1911, right out of the box. I've never been a railed 1911 fan, but the Tac Ops has grown on me ever since I laid hands on one a few months ago. Here's a few pics with my cell phone. NH before the range and the Sig afterwards.

    Wow,.......very nice!
    The Sig would be perfect if stainless, or better yet hard chromed!


    Congrats Joe! :cool:

    I love the Falcon. It's everything I'd want in a custom 1911, except the Falcon roll mark. If I could custom order it without it, it would be perfect. The Sig is awesome, too, btw. Congrats!

    You can order the Falcon with a naked slide for an extra $50.

    I saw a review of that sig on YouTube. I'm thinking somebody posted the link here a few months ago, but I can't remember. The girl that did the review is pretty hot.

    Anyways, very cool guns!!

    I was wrong, the video is over a sig extreme. It's still worth checking out (if you have some free time).

    Glock2740, did you ever get to mess with the double star 1911? If so, how would you compare the two?

    I haven't yet. I'd really be interested in checking out a Doublestar sometime though.

    Thanks :) The EE's on the Sig doesn't bother me at all. I have a custom built Kimber and a Pistol Dynamics with EE's and they've all ran just fine. I don't care for the looks as much, but all three guns have functioned flawlessly so far.

    Wow! Two great looking shooters, my friend. Other than being hard chromed, what would you change about the Falcon?

    I actually like it black. If I would have ordered it, it would have a naked slide, with the NH logo on both sides of the slide behind the cocking serrations. Other than that, it's just how I like it. :cool: Now, the Sig may end up hardchromed someday, but as for now, a flush crowned barrel and a Harrison Extreme short black solid trigger are the only things happening to it. And there's a Surefire X300 light headed my way for it. :cool:

    Having made the mistake of buying a Nighthawk myself, I am more impressed with the Sig.
    I wish you better luck than I had with my Nighthawk ownership experience.
