Gun Review: Nighthawk Custom T4 1911



Nighthawk Custom’s T4 is an elegant work of art, but it’s also a fine pistol that serves equally well in defense of life.

Why the Nighthawk Custom T4 is a serious consideration for defense:

  • Nighthawk’s “One Gun, One Gunsmith” approach ensures the highest quality production.
  • It features a shorter 3.8-inch match grade barrel.
  • This allows the gun to be concealed but remain highly shootable.
  • The entire gun is beveled and dehorned for comfortable carry.
  • The Tritium night sights are highly useful in low light, when most shootings occur.

The beginning of the 20th century was a classic age for shotguns. High-quality shotguns were being made here in the United States and around the world. Most guns sold were standard-grade guns, perfectly serviceable for hunting and recreational shooting, but during that time — and continuing on through modern times — there has been a demand for high-quality ”bespoke” guns. That desire for firearms that are a cut above the norm continues today in shotguns, rifles and pistols.

I’ve said many times that it’s harder today to buy a bad gun than a good one. Modern manufacturing techniques, the open information stream of the internet and a more educated gun buying public have stifled the sales of inferior, poor-quality guns, and such firearms simply don’t survive.

NIghthawk Custom T4 -1Of course, the computer-designed and machine-formed guns widely available perform reasonably well. They function reliably, they’re reasonably accurate, and they produce the same terminal ballistics as their handmade and much more costly counterparts, but they lack the feeling of being truly crafted by the hands of a true gunmaker.

On a practical basis, there’s no practical reason to spend several thousand dollars for a handgun, but there are several companies across the country who are doing a thriving business building them simply because there’s a demand for a firearm that’s a cut above the norm.

NIghthawk Custom T4 -4A Cut Above
Such are the 1911s built by Nighthawk Custom. According to Tim Lehr, Director of Marketing, “It all revolves around one gun, one gunsmith. Every Nighthawk Custom pistol is stamped with the initials of the gunsmith who builds it.” Forged frames and slides, machined parts, match-grade barrels and bushings, all hand-fitted by a master gunsmith, create a gun that’s not only functional and accurate beyond the capability of the best shooter, but also an heirloom that can be proudly handed down for generations.

Nighthawk’s T4 is such a gun. Designed for concealed carry with a 3.8-inch match-grade bull barrel for more reliability than the shorter-barreled T3, the T4 also features the Everlast flat spring recoil system for more manageable recoil and faster follow-up shots. It’s built on a forged Officer-sized frame, making it more compact — but still maintaining a seven-plus-one capacity in .45 ACP. Other features include a thinned frame for more concealability, weight-reducing cuts on the front of the slide and thinner G10 grips. It’s available in 9mm Luger and .45 ACP.

NIghthawk Custom T4 -3There are coarse cocking serrations on the rear of the slide and 25 lines-per-inch checkering on the front and back straps. The beavertail is generous and melted for comfort, as is the thumb safety. In fact, the entire gun is beveled and de-horned for comfortable carry.

The rear sight is a Heinie Straight Eight Slant Pro Tritium night sight with a Tritium front sight, and the blade width of the front matches the rear notch well for fast and precise shooting. To enable a higher grip, the front strap is cut higher than normal and smoothly contoured. Both hammer and aluminum trigger are skeletonized and adjustable for backlash.

NIghthawk Custom T4 -6Where Brawn Meets Beauty
As would be expected on a firearm of this level of quality, each gun is tested before shipping and comes with a target that reflects the name of both the builder and the tester. My test gun was built by K. J. Phillips and tested with three bullet configurations for reliability. The test group was a slightly elongated hole. I suspect there are few, if any, shooters capable of fully utilizing the accuracy capabilities of this gun.

Shooting the T4 was pleasant and comfortable. The front and rear checkering, along with the G10 grips, provided ample purchase but weren’t rough on my hands. The smoothly melted safety was positive in both engagement and disengagement, and the trigger was exceptional, breaking on my scale at 2.8 pounds, crisp and with no discernible backlash.

NIghthawk Custom T4 -2At my standard test distance of 15 yards, it was possible for me to shoot ragged holes in deliberate two-handed shooting. Fast shooting resulted in good groups and follow-up shots easy for a smaller 1911 in .45 ACP. Recoil was mild, partially due to the 34-ounce empty weight but also quite smooth, making it feel less abrupt for a downsized .45.

I fired more than 250 rounds during the test, mostly Winchester Win3Gun 230-grain ammo, but I also ran about 60 rounds of Winchester Kinetic HE 185-grain hollow-points. There were no malfunctions with either, and while this is hardly a definitive test, there’s no doubt of Nighthawk’s reputation for reliability.

Going For A Walk
While shooting targets is the standard method of testing a handgun, the Nighthawk T4 is designed for personal defense and concealed carry. If you live a t-shirt and soccer shorts kind of life, you might find the Nighthawk a bit bulky and heavy. If you wear a jacket or leave your shirt tail outside you pants, the T4 is easily concealable.

It’s slimmer than normal 1911s due to the trimmed-down frame and thinner G4 grips. Yes, it’s a bit heavier than some compacts, but if you like 1911 .45s, it’s only five more ounces than an alloy-framed Commander, and it has a forged and machined steel frame that will last several lifetimes.

NIghthawk Custom T4 -7Other features of the T4 indicate its dedicated mission to personal defense. The safety is easily disengaged, but unobtrusive, and engagement is positive in both on and off positions. When carrying single-action semi-autos with manual thumb safeties in position one — round chambered, hammer cocked, safety on — a vague feeling safety can become accidently disengaged while fastening a seat belt or other maneuvers. That’s not a concern here.

Disassembly for cleaning is a bit off the norm for 1911s, as are all bull-barreled 1911s. To disassemble, clear the chamber and remove the magazine, lock the slide to the rear, insert the disassembly tool in the guide rod, and slowly release the slide. You can then remove the slide lock, and the slide comes off the front. The guide rod and barrel will then drop out of the slide.

I carried the T4 for a few days in a Galco Concealable Belt Holster, and it was quite comfortable, though it would have been a bit difficult to hide in my normal summer dress of shorts and a tucked in shirt. Depending on your preference, a lighter and smaller striker fired gun might be more suitable, but no one will argue that a gun like the Nighthawk Custom T4 is a gun that’s a cut above the average and likely to be passed down to the next generation with pride. Pricing starts at $3,495.

This week in games: PUBG goes to Hollywood, Monster Hunter: World gets a PC release window



We’re back. I hope you enjoyed your holidays, if you celebrate. If not, well, I hope you enjoyed your less-eventful two weeks.

As you might expect news is pretty slow as people ramp up for CES next week. There’s some stuff to recap though, as Monster Hunter: World gets its PC release date, Netflix explores making a PUBG movie, Need for Speed: Payback gets online free roam, someone makes a shooter where everyone’s strapped into desk chairs, and more. This is gaming news for January 1 through 5.

Grab bag

If the recently concluded Steam Sale wasn’t enough to fill your backlog, this week’s Humble Bundle is pretty interesting, if only because the games on offer are such a weird ensemble. TempestLiEat, and Punch Club are at the $1 tier. Next it’s AragamiBeholder, and (of all things) BioShock Infinite at the beat-the-average tier. And if you want to jump to $12, Humble will throw in a copy of the incredible Zachtronics programming-puzzle game Shenzhen I/O.

Long live the king

The first Total War Saga game, Thrones of Britannia, draws ever closer. This week we get a look at King Alfred the Great, the central figure and progenitor of this particular Saga story. I’m hoping the animations actually look this good in the final game, because this is a lot more impressive and natural-looking than previous historical outing Attila.

Worlds apart

When Capcom said Monster Hunter: World would launch on consoles in late January and then on PC later, I guess I assumed a Destiny 2-level delay—meaning a month or two. The reality is a bit more depressing, as World is “aiming for an autumn 2018 release” on PC. Ah well, plenty to play in the meantime.

EVE Valkyrie

CCP is slimming down fast. After shuttering its Atlanta studio in October, CCP announced this week that it’s sold off CCP Newcastle (developers of VR dogfighter EVE Valkyrie) to Sumo Digital, which pinch-hits on many of Microsoft’s games, is working on Dead Island 2, and also developed last year’s excellent Snake Pass. An odd fit maybe, but I’m glad the talented crew at Newcastle was left intact. Valkyrie was a bit thin at final release, but it’s still a pretty fantastic proof-of-concept and kudos to the team for having the vision to build out an interesting VR experience when the tech was still young.

As for CCP…well, they’ve still got EVE.

Free as a bird

Okay, listen: Online free roam was not the feature that would’ve saved Need for Speed: PaybackIt’s a terrible game. That said, it’s baffling online free roam wasn’t in the game at launch. Like…isn’t that all anyone really wants from an online mode in an open-world racer?

Anyway, Ghost Games is adding it. No date yet, but we’ll keep you updated.

Cel shaded

It’s been a while since I’ve checked in with Ni No Kuni II but PC Gamersurfaced this 25 minute demo video this week and I found myself watching it because damn, Ni No Kuni II looks beautiful. I have no idea whether I’ll like the actual game and its weird pseudo-Pikmin combat stuff but the cel shaded character models are just incredible.

Out of time

Here’s a bizarre story about early PC gaming: I remember going to my local public library in 1996/1997 and browsing through shelves of software. In among the various utilities you could borrow, there was one small shelf of games—The Lost Mind of Dr. Brain and its follow-up The Time Warp of Dr. Brain, a couple of Broderbund games probably, and the FMV adventure game Titanic: Adventure Out of Time.

The Dr. Brain games are still abandonware, but good news: Night Dive picked up the rights to Titanic: Adventure Out of Time last year and it’s now housedon From what I remember it’s pretty fantastic—bearing in mind the limitations of 90’s FMV, the game nevertheless attempts to be incredibly faithful to the Titanic’s history.

Battle Royale

The saga of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds gets weirder by the minute. This week, PUBG Corporation’s Chang Han Kim told Inven Global (via RPS) “I’d like PUBG to become a universal media franchise based on the game. We want to take part in diverse industries including e-sports, movies, drama, cartoons, animation, and more. In fact, we received a couple of love calls from a number of developers in Hollywood and Netflix.”

Yes, we’re now looking at the prospect of a film based on a game (PUBG) based on a film (Battle Royale). What a weird world.

Last Man Sitting

Besides, PUBG is old news. It’s all about Last Man Sitting now, a game I first saw on Reddit and which now has a proper-stupid trailer. The gimmick: It’s a shooter where everyone’s in office chairs, and the only way to move is by shooting—the recoil sends you flying backwards. Game of the Year’s never been so easy.
