Range Report: I ran some 230gr Hydra-Shok, 230gr UMC ball, 200gr SWC over 4.2 and 4.5gr of Bullseye. All hit left, which is not surprising since my eyes are a hot mess (I'm cross dominant and have exotropia.) Perfect trigger, slide is like glass, red fiber optic is real easy to pick up and no failure-to-anything. I had a lot of coffee and no breakfast, so it was hard to settle down, but I did manage a decent target with the 4.5gr load.

Nighthawk has been a real treat to work with and would recommend them on their customer service, alone. Heinie however, failed miserably and sent me the wrong sight to ship down to them on THE day of test firing shipping, of course. After a few heated emails, the director of sales told me to take my business elsewhere. No apologies and no offer to reimburse my overnight charges... Nothing. I even emailed Richard Heinie directly and no response. Too bad, since was going to order one of these in 9mm. Oh well!

Thanks for the info. At what yard line is that target?

7yds offhand. There were other shooters at 7yds so I couldn't stretch it out. The test target that came with the pistol was shot at 15yds from a bench. 1/4" center to center using 230gr jhp and ball, and 200gr swc.
