Nighthawk Custom has teamed up once again with Agency Arms, Railscales, Cerakote and Hillbilly 223 for the release of its new Agent 2 pistol.
Built to push the boundaries of the 1911 platform, the Nighthawk Agent 2 is modeled after the Agency Arms Urban Combat slide which is faceted to reduce weight and features side windows as well as front and rear cocking serrations. The faceted design carries down into the frame for a sleek look. Meanwhile, a lightened and stylized rail incorporates Agency’s patented “accelerator” cut, while still allowing the user to mount lights and lasers.
The one-piece magwell, barrel bushing, grip safety, thumb safety and slide stop all sport the faceted flat edged profile and aggressive serrations “with an incredible level of detail for both look and more importantly enhanced grip,” the presser says.
The gun features G10 Railscales grips. These grips are slim reduced printing and shooters with smaller hands. The grip panels sport the press check serration design, which maximizes grip texture without making things too aggressive or rough. A thumb scoop near the mag catch offers relief and makes it easier to release the magazine while maintaining a firm shooting grip.
The trigger, meanwhile, is a variation of the Agency Arms Flat Faced Trigger with an enhanced toe.
“While the Agency Arms trigger has been popular in making pivot-based triggers like the Glock feel more like a 1911 trigger, the new 1911 version of this trigger is an experience that needs to be felt,” Nighthawk says.
The Nighthawk Agent 2 is available in 9mm and .45 ACP with a five-inch barrel; 10-round magazine capacity; OAL of 8.59 inches; height of 5.81 inches; empty weight of 40.1 ounces; Heinie ledge rear sight; and fiber optic front sight. The Cerakote finish is provided by Hillbilly 223. MSRP on the gun is $4,495. Features and specs are below.
