This Month in Firearms News:
On the cover: Nighthawk Firehawk - There’s a line from Stephen King “Sooner or later, everything old is new again” that I don’t think he coined. It may have been done earlier in the movie All That Jazz. Heck, for all I know, on one par- ticularly boring day, Sargon the Great uttered those words. In any case, the counterpoint to that is “Soon- er or later, cutting-edge becomes common.” And so it is with the latest advances that the inter- net firearms cognoscenti would have you believe they thought up just this week.
Now, in this case, the combination comes to us from Nighthawk, who actually are cognoscenti, do not pretend to invent thing they hadn’t, and make drool-worthy pistols. The subject pistol in question: Firehawk. What we have here is a single-stack 1911 that has both a red-dot optic mounted on it, and a compensator built into it. And, one that I took up north to The Pin Shoot, to use in the Space Gun Main Event, trying my best to slay five pins per table at max speed.
