Manufacturer’s Description

The Nighthawk Heinie Signature Series Compact is a 1911-style semiauto pistol built on an officer-size frame with a 4.25″ slide and chambered in 9mm or .45 ACP. It sports many of the Signature Series’ attributes, such as a proprietary thinned frame and mainspring housing that are scalloped to provide a positive grip without the abrasion some people feel from checkering. Nighthawk says the grips are a new pattern of G10 that are thinned to ease concealed carry, and feature a relieved area on the side to allow easy access to the magazine release. The barrel/bushing combo allow take-down without the use of any special tools.

The Signature Series Compact also features Nighthawk’s ultra hi-cut frame that allows shooters with very large hands to get that pinky finger to rest firmly on the frame while shooting. It also allows a more natural point when you extend your arm because your hand goes up into the frame much further, according to Nighthawk.

Other features include:

  • A match-grade barrel;
  • a lightweight aluminum Nighthawk custom trigger;
  • a crowned barrel and bushing;
  • Heinie Slant-Pro Straight Eight night sights;
  • a scalloped front strap and mainspring housing;
  • 40 LPI on the slide’s rear to match the rear sight; and
  • a complete dehorn for comfortable carry.
