Pistol Review: The Nighthawk Custom Kestrel
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.

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.
