In September 2012, we started using nothing but parts that we developed which are fully machined from solid billet.
This includes very hard to machine parts such as the beavertail grip safety, thumb safety (single side and ambi),
magazine release, slide stop, hammers etc. Other companies will make you pay a very stiff premium to have fully
machined parts throughout, but they will be standard on every model of 1911 we produce at Nighthawk Custom from now on.
We have also switched to an extreme high cut under the trigger guard. This is very noticeable once you pick up the gun.
Even customers with large fingers may suddenly find that even an Officer size frame will allow them to get all
three fingers on the frame.
