PM JD and ask him how much he needed to to mortgage for his kit:
Nighthawk makes a nice pistol, just not my style. If I've got over $2K in my pocket, I'm going to see Les Baer or possibly Volkmann for my pistol. But I can't seem to get the gun budget up that high before spending it on one or two other guns. I've got a revolver itch right now that is causing problems with increasing my 1911 collection.

I know what you mean it will take a lot for me to save that much. There are a few cheaper pistols that I still want.

I have a nighthawk and a wilson. They are almost the same gun. Guys at nighthawk came from wilson. With that said, I absolutly love my wilson cqb compact. The nighthawks will run you more coin. Be ready for a 6 month wait for both companies.

What you could do is buy a lesser expensive 1911 of your choice and upgrade it to be to your liking

I know a guy that looks for worn out Colts that he can buy really cheap. Sends them to Wilson to be rebuilt & mods installed. Ends up having about the same $$$ in it as if he'd bought a new one. But, it's one just like he wants it & tuned to the nth degree!
