Arkansas-based Nighthawk Custom have launched their new Tactical Ready Series of 9×19 double stack 1911s. The Tactical Ready Series or TRS includes the Commander and Comp, both feed from 17 round magazines and feature a monolithic slide, a lightweight aluminium Nighthawk Custom flat trigger, dimpled cocking serrations and a match grade barrel.
The Commander has an overall length of 7.76in, a tritium front sight and an ultra hi-cut front strap. The TRS Comp includes a solid gold bead front sight, a 5in barrel and an integrated compensator.
Here’s what Nighthawk Custom have to say about their new Tactical Ready Series:
Nighthawk Custom is back at it again as the maker of “The World’s Finest 1911’s” unveils its latest creation: The Tactical Ready Series (TRS), a line of Fully Machined™ double stacks chambered in 9mm for those that love high round capacity.
The Tactical Ready Series launches with two models right out of the gate, with both models featuring a monolithic slide. The full-size, government frame TRS Comp features an integrated compensator for unbeatable control when shooting downrange, while the TRS Commander brings the standard 17-round capacity to a commander frame.
“Up until this point, we have only offered a double stack as an upgrade,” says Mark Stone, owner and CEO of Nighthawk Custom. “With the current demand in the market, releasing a permanent double stack series meets consumer demands and shows customers what we can do with a double stack.”
The TRS Comp follows up on the game-changing innovation of the Fire Hawk’s integrated compensator, this time with a double stack mag. This compensated model comes standard with a recon rail under the barrel for an optional light, making this pistol ideal for low-light settings. A dimpled rear cocking design provides ample traction when racking the slide while the custom grip always gives the shooter confidence on their hold of the gun.
Even without the compensated barrel, the smaller TRS Commander brings a wealth of benefits to the table. A standard recon rail allows for the addition of a tactical light with the standard 17-round mag packing enough firepower to topple any scenario. The TRS Commander also comes with a dimpled cocking design at the front and rear of the slide. With low mag capacity no longer a concern, the TRS Commander makes for an ideal carry pistol.
