Nighthawk Custom Browning High Power at the 2016 SHOT Show


Nighthawk Custom Browning High Power at the 2016 SHOT Show

In an industry dominated by striker-fired plastic guns, there is still room for a classic steel and wood pistol such as the Browning High Power.

The folks at Nighthawk Custom are a fan of the design and the shop, which normally specializes in custom 1911 pistols, announced their take on the masterpiece of John Browning and FN’s Dieudonne Saive at the 2016 SHOT Show.

I was able to handle the gun and the quality workmanship was evident.

The Nighthawk Custom website outlines the custom touches on the base FN Mk III version of the pistol:

Hand Textured(Stippled) Frame and Trigger Guard
Hand Textured Slide Top and Rear of the Slide
Custom Extended Beavertail
Contoured Magwell
French Border
Heinie Slant Pro Black Rear Sight
Nighthawk (14K) Gold Bead Front Sight
Crowned Barrel
25 LPI Serrated Mag Release
Competition Steel Hammer, Improved Sear Lever, and Trigger
Custom 4# Crisp Trigger Job
Cera Kote Satin Rust Resistant Finish
Custom Select Cocobolo Checkered Grips with NH Logo
Two 13 round Capacity Magazines

As with any custom project, the Nighthawk Custom High Power isn’t cheap, with a retail of $2.895.
