Summary: The description, specs, photos and pricing for the Nighthawk Heinie Tactical Carry pistol.

Manufacturer’s Description

The Nighthawk Heinie Tactical Carry is a 1911-style full-size pistol chambered in .45 ACP. Nighthawk says that per Heinie’s instructions, Nighthawk shortened the frame and then attached the Heinie magazine well. This way frame stays its original length, affording shooters the fast reloads normally associated with pistols that have an extended magazine well extension that also lengthens the grips.

The slide top is flattened and very fine 40 lpi serrations run its full length. The front strap checkering is extremely high cut, which allows your grip to go as high as possible under the trigger guard. The Match Grade Barrel is held in place using Heinie’s extra thick barrel bushing, the edges of which have been gently beveled. The spring plug beneath bears the distinctive Heinie logo.

Heinie’s trigger bow has his personal lightening cuts for faster reset. The length of his solid trigger is a little shorter than the long triggers used on most custom 1911s today. Trigger pull ranges from 3.75–4 lbs. The accuracy guarantee: 1″ at 25 yards.

The rear of the slide features hand-cut 40 lpi serrations that match the slide top serrations. The slide has rear cocking serrations only and comes with the ball radius cut. Heinie Slant-Pro Straight Eight Night Sights come standard, or you can opt for his new Two Dot Slant-Pro style. The slide stop has been cut flush and the frame is chamfered to facilitate easy removal and replacement. A spare extractor serrated to match the slide is included.

Prior to applying the finish, the frame and slide are hand polished, and anything that resembles a sharp edge is removed. The Tactical Carry is available with your choice of Perma Kote finish, or you can opt for full hard chrome or hard chromed frame and black Perma Kote slide.

Other features include: 

  • Heinie custom grips (Coco Bolo with logo or etched Alumagrips with logo);
  • the slide-stop axle cut to frame and hole chamfered;
  • a Heinie guide rod plug;
  • the barrel crown cut and beveled to match the beveled bushing;
  • the Heinie logo on the slide;
  • a Heinie lightweight hammer;
  • a Heinie match-grade barrel; and
