Pistol Review: The Nighthawk Custom Kestrel

July 4, 2019

Working with master pistolsmith Richard Heinie, Nighthawk Custom has designed the Kestrel Model to be the ultimate concealed carry 1911. 

 

--


With the Kestrel, Nighthawk offers great upgrades to the 1911 platform such as a thinned and scalloped frame, ultra-thin wood grips, crowned barrel, and beveled/recessed slide stop, all in a commander sized package.

 

Features Include:

 

  • Match Grade Crowned and Recessed Barrel

  • Reduced Overall Frame Circumference

  • Well Beveled Magazine

  • Heinie Slant Pro Straight Eight Night Sights

  • Hand Serrated Slide Rear

  • Heinie Signature Scalloped Front Strap and Mainspring Housing

  • Forged Frame & 4.25" Barrel

  • Tactical Checkered Extended Magazine Release

  • Mainspring Housing contoured for ease of carry

  • Available in: 9 MM / .45 ACP

 

To quote Nighthawk Custom, “The Kestrel fits your hand like Dad’s old hammer and carries like Grandpa’s pocketknife.” I could not have said it better myself.
