Summary: The description, specs, pricing, photos and user ratings for the Nighthawk Heinie Signature Series Compact pistol.
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.
