With features competitors will love, the Nighthawk Custom BDS9 is ready to rock out of the box. The 1911 comes ready to go and not only looks great but focuses on performance. Likewise, designed and built for the alpha competitive shooter, it can easily switch between iron sights and optics for multiple divisions.
The Nighthawk Custom BDS9
Building on a forged government-size frame, the frame and slide are hand fit for exceptional fit and finish. Correspondingly, the frame and slide feature a silver DLC finish for durability and a pleasing aesthetic. Additionally, the full-length dust cover includes a single-slot Picatinny rail for the addition of a light.
The aluminum grip module features a black anodized finish to provide long-lasting strength. In addition, the grip includes Nighthawk’s new aggressive texture that sticks to your hands no matter the climate. A black finish on the grip, trigger guard, barrel, and controls provides a sleek contrast to the BDS9’s overall finish.
The slide features heavy angle cut forward and rear cocking serrations for easy manipulation, whether wet or dry. In addition, slide lightening ports allow the slide to cycle quicker for fast follow-up shots.
Nighthawk’s Interchangeable Optics System (IOS) provides shooters with the choice between iron sights or an optic. As a result, competition shooters can run the same pistol in multiple divisions by changing between the iron sight plate or an optic. However, switching between the two does not affect zero. The iron sight plate features a Heinie Black Ledge rear sight that couples with a red fiber optic front sight.
Housed within the slide is the 5-inch hand-fit, match-grade bull barrel chambered in 9mm. The barrel features a black DLC coating and is crowned and cut flush with the slide. Rounds are sent downrange via the lightweight aluminum Nighthawk Custom tri-cavity trigger. Correspondingly, the Everlast Recoil System assists with quicker follow up shots.
The BDS9 comes with two slide stops. One operates like a standard 1911 slide stop, locking back on an empty magazine. The second is a disengaged slide stop for competition shooters who don’t want the slide to lock back.
The Nighthawk Custom BDS9 is available now, with an MSRP of $5,999.00. For more info, please visit NighthawkCustom.com.
