Based in the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas USA, Nighthawk Custom is world famous for their high quality custom 1911 pistols which are the market leader for high performance shooters and competition shooters. As seen in the MAGPUL DYNAMICS video used by the instructors, Nighthawk Custom pistols are refined to the highest levels of craftsmanship. Chris Costa & Travis Haley both use Nighthawk Custom pistols in their 1911 instructional classes, which says a lot about the quality and performance of Nighthawk Custom 1911s. The RECON is based on a special model that Chris Costa designed for Nighthawk Custom.
Previously, this pistol was sold under the former brand RWL, which has now been renamed to RWA. RWL and RWA are really the same brand but all future models of this pistol will be sold under the new RWA identity. We've included some reviews here for your convenience. Even though they may refer to this pistol as an RWL, it's the same RWA pistol you see here. This version is the 2nd edition of the same gun, and enhancements include moving to a solid trigger and using hex grip screws as seen on the real NHC Costa Recon.
Designed for skirmishing, the Recon is powered by CO2 and delivers a very strong recoil kick as well as very effective power of 400fps on 0.2g BB's. Performance is stable and effective even in cold weather. It also offers an accessory rail system for attaching flashlights and lasers for tactical use.
NightHawk Custom pistols are the choice of experts who know that they can only depend on the best. This officially licensed model is replicates a real single stack 1911 with the same dimensions, functional features, field stripping and shooting mechanics. It is designed to deliver solid performance at an affordable price. Removable and re-loadable full size magazine means you can also practice fast reloads using the realistic slide lock feature.
Extra Nighthawk Custom magazines are sold separately. Also compatible with KWC 1911 magazines with flush base plate if you prefer. This pistol is powered by 12g CO2 cartridges (sold separately)
