Nighthawk Lady Hawk 9mm 1911 Handgun Review

The Nighthawk Lady Hawk 9mm handgun is a compact, easy to shoot 1911 that delivers a performance plus!


For the crew at Nighthawk Custom, the Lady Hawk concept came about when they began to receive requests for 1911 pistols with the grip-frame circumference slimmed down as much as possible. The thought occurred to them that they might just make a 1911 specifically for women, maybe a Commander-sized pistol in 9mm with slim stocks and a fancy two-tone finish. The Lady Hawk was born.

They ordered quite a few of them and over 90% of the orders requested that the Lady Hawk logo not be included. So let me see if I’ve got this right: Nighthawk Custom has designed a pistol for the ladies that men want to buy too? And, instead of just being a niche item, the pistol is selling extremely well? My guess would be that no one at Nighthawk Custom is the least bit unhappy that things didn’t turn out exactly like they thought they would.
