Our Assessment: The 1911 and 1911-A1 pistols served the military of the United States from 1911 to 1985, through two World Wars and the Korean and Vietnam wars. They gained a reputation as a reliable handgun with plenty of stopping power, and are held in high regard by those who have used them. The design was the end-result of a series of developments by famous gun designer John Browning, starting with the Model 1900. The advances made by Browning were revolutionary at the time, and were so successful that they are considered commonplace today. Browning not only developed first a pivoting and then a tilting barrel to allow for a locked system, he developed the concept of “the slide”, which is now synonymous with semi-automatic handguns.

As with any hobby, with the 1911 you can go as far as your pocketbook will take you. Just about every brand has a 1911 on offer and they range from entry-level to high-end, this example is one of the latter. Nighthawk Custom is among a small group of the best manufacturers of custom and semi-custom 1911s in the world including Wilson Combat, Ed Brown and Les Baer. This pistol is Nighthawk’s Trooper, but not in its standard outfit. This one has received the double stack upgrade and is now a 2011-style pistol. It doesn’t stop there, the pistol took a trip to the Custom Shop where it received further upgrades. The grip frame was DLC coated black and the rest of the parts received silver DLC. The lower edges of the slide received a heavy bevel and the top edge of the side flats got a classy French border cut. A new ambidextrous safety was fit, tuned, and custom profiled. The barrel also got the custom treatment and received fluting. This is a beautiful 2011 with top-tier performance to match. This pistol looks nearly brand new and is in Excellent condition. If you’ve been looking to get a premium-quality double stack 1911, you can’t do much better than this. Please see our photos and good luck!

Some are hot, some are not, but thankfully most can be shot!
