Nighthawk Custom: The TRS Commander - 17+1 Capacity In A Commander-Sized 1911

Just last week Nighthawk announced the release of their new, proprietary Tactical Ready Series. The series starts out with two models featuring fully machined double-stack frames in 9mm.

Nighthawk’s TRS Comp targets the competition market, while the TRS Commander brings 17+1 round capacity in a concealed carry package.


The TRS Commander launches as Nighthawk's first 1911 built upon a commander-sized, double-stack frame. With high-capacity demands growing, the TRS Commander provides a high-capacity 1911 that's ideal for concealed carry users.

“Up until this point, we have only offered a double stack as an upgrade,” says Mark Stone, owner and CEO of Nighthawk Custom. “With the current demand in the market, releasing a permanent double stack series meets consumer demands and shows customers what we can do with a double stack.”

The TRS Commander features a match-grade 4.25-inch stainless steel bull barrel that comes housed in a commander frame and monolithic slide. In addition, it comes outfitted with a full-length dust cover that provides additional weight to the front of the pistol, helping control muzzle flip.

When it comes to sights, Nighthawk cut no corners. A tritium front sight aids in rapid target acquisition, while a Heinie Ledge Black rear sight features serrations on the back, reducing glare.

The TRS Commander comes machined with a unique dimpling on the front and back of the slide, matching the pattern of the grip. The dimples provide a non-abrasive grip surface that remains snag-free during the draw and doesn't hang or snag on clothing when holstering.

An incredibly attractive feature of the TRS Commander is it's serrated flat trigger that provides a positive surface when pulling the trigger. Not only that but it breaks at a crisp ~3.25 pounds. Topping it all of, the TRS Commander comes standard with a black nitride finish increasing durability and corrosion resistance.

With 17+1 capacity in a commander frame, along with Nighthawk Custom’s legendary accuracy and reliability, the TRS Commander may be the ultimate concealed carry pistol.
