Default New Nighthawk GRP

Hello all,

I just recently acquired my first 1911, a Nighthawk Custom GRP. I took it to the range last Wednesday evening and put my first 105 rounds through it.

Anyway, here is my range report.

First 4 magazines through my new GRP are in the silhouette between 3 & 10 yds: mag 1- tight grouping top of the head 3-5yds, mag 2- 5 to 10 yds center of mass shots combined with head shots, mag 3-spleen shots with head shot 10 yds, mag 4- Gall shots with center of mass and head shots 8 yds.

The last 2 magazines were split between the 2 targets on either side of the head, 13 rounds in the left (~10yds) and 5 in the right (15 yes).

I'm not a sharp shooter by any standards, but I have to say the GRP definitely is an impressive and beautiful weapon. It is so smooth even right out of the bag I can't believe it, "it's like butta". Definitely the best 1911 I have ever shot or handled. I could not be happier. Now all I need is a nice leather holster to go with it.

Thank you JD for all the time spent chatting with me about different 1911's and steering me towards the GRP from Nighthawk Custom. I love my GRP and yes I'm hooked.

Congrats! You picked a fine piece. Complaints against Nighthawk do exist, but the praise far outweighs those complaints. I'm glad you had the chance to pick one up......but be warned......they are very addictive

First 1911 and you spoiled yourself.
I'm gonna stop you right there, you just said an AR-15 is a high-powered rifle. It is obvious you don't know anything about guns and I shall ignore anything you say from this point on.
