The Nighthawk/Korth Revolver Series: The Skyhawk

June 27, 2018

 

Since the partnership began between Korth and Nighthawk in 2016, they have released hit after hit, becoming quite popular among revolver aficionados. The latest in the series, the Skyhawk, has exceeded the expectations set by its predecessors the Super Sport and the Mongoose.

 

All parts and frame are machined from high-quality billet steel and aluminum. All together they function like a fine Swiss watch. The trigger is high polished and the action is like no other compact revolver due to the high level of engineering during the machining and assembly process. Durability and accuracy is unmatched as it should be in a revolver of this stature. The aluminum frame is finished in Hard Coated Black while the steel cylinder is coated with a DLC finish.

 

This baby revolver incorporates the fine quality of both Korth and Nighthawk. The Sky Hawk is a 9mm revolver with 2” barrel requiring no moon clips due to its proprietary ejection system. Internally, it features a Korth action with many innovative aspects. The action features a roller on the trigger that comes into play when the pistol is fired in double action. The roller engages and rides on the hammer tongue resulting in a very smooth action. Another internal design feature includes an adjustable trigger return spring that can be tuned with a tensioner without compromising reliability. Korth's ejection system functions beautifully. First, each round sits in a fully machined chamber. Then the ejector features six retracting fingers, one for each cylinder or chamber. As the ejection rod is depressed, the fingers extend to engage the rim of the cartridge.

 

Externally, the Skyhawk features a robust rear sight that is adjustable for windage and a gold bead insert for the front sight. The hammer features two lightening holes.  A Hogue Monogrip with finger grooves is installed for good control, better traction, and helps contain recoil. The final touch, all the edges have been softened. All in all, the Skyhawk makes for an excellent everyday carry revolver.
