New for 2013, Nighthawk Custom is introducing a 1911 style 9mm pistol carrying the moniker T4. The T4 will be offered in your choice of steel or aluminum frame, and sport a 3.8 inch bull barrel rated for +p or +p+ ammunition. The advantage found in the T4 size will be the increased reliability due to the slide being cut to allow for 4.25 inches of travel found on commander slides while sitting on an Officers sized frame. Currently Nighthawk Custom is taking orders for the T4 with handguns being shipped to customers in 12-15 months. The pistol is planned to retail at $3500 for a steel and $3550 for an aluminum frame.
