ONE GUN, ONE GUNSMITH
At Nighthawk Custom, each pistol is built from start to finish by a single gunsmith. Our slogan and philosophy, “ONE GUN, ONE GUNSMITH,” is the direct result of how we build our guns. Once a pistol is built, the builder test fires the pistol to insure that it exceeds both the Nighthawk Standard, and his own. He then uses a metal stamp to imprint his initials under the left grip panel. While this is not the fastest, most efficient, or most cost-effective way to build a firearm, this shows the highest level of ownership, and it signifies the pride and commitment our gunsmiths take in the work they do.
In addition to having the most talented gunsmiths in the industry building each gun by hand, Nighthawk Custom also uses the highest quality parts and components to build each gun. All parts used in the pistols are fully machined from bar stock steel. This is the FM, Fully Machined Series of parts. Each part used is oversized and must be fit to each gun by hand - there are no drop-in, cast, or MIM parts used in the work we do. When the highest quality parts are combined with the most talented gunsmiths in the industry, through the process of One Gun, One Gunsmith, the resulting quality is unparalleled.
