They are also one of the most reliable, proven firearms on the market. The AK-47 of the handgun world. High mag capacity does make it sink to bottom of the river fast when used as a weight but if your using it for other purposes the extra ammo is icing on a black cake.

Nighthawk Customs 1911's...

I have never heard of NightHawks but wow they are out of my price range. Is one Nighthawk really worth 2 colts, Springfields, or kimbers? Are they that amazing?

Nighthawks are pretty badass, and yes they are pricey! I think that if you wanted just one 1911 for a specific reason,ex..duty use,CC,competition,or just because they are badass then i would say possibly..but if you are one that loves to aquire alot of different 1911s then i would say probably not unless you just have alot of money to burn and can get one just because

I have 2 nighthawks and 3 wilsons. I love my nighthawks, but to me they arnt worth the extra money over a wilson. The nighthawks and wilsons are basicly made the same way. Most people dont know that nighthawk customs is ran out of six storage units in a storage facility. I would save the money and buy a wilson all day long.

Signing out, Alpha1victor.

Blasphemy! Of course their worth it... Who cares where they are made, I'd buy one even if they made them in a sewer in Detroit.

Default Clarification

I didn't intend to get people so worked up here, but I have to say the knowledge and humorous friendly banter is why I joined FirearmsTalk.com.

I guess I should clarify, I'm just trying to get the best quality bang for my buck on a 1911 straight out of the box where I don't have to do anything to it. I've fired a Sig, Kimber, 3" Springfield, and a Dan Wesson at the range closest to my house. The Kimber is a rental and the others were fellow shooters who wanted to trade a mag of my USP Tac for a mag through their 1911, so I feel very comfortable with the Kimber since I have shot it more. However, that does not mean it is the best, in fact after reading several of the 1911 posts I'm more confused because of the manufacturer buffet of 1911s.

So for 1911 in the range of $1k (<$1300) where do I turn? Again I want to stress my sincere thanks to all of you who are taking the time to help me out.

He totally stirred it up... And I love it.

And fyi, hi-point is actually stationed in a meth lab in Pittsburgh.
