Summary: The description, specs, photo, pricing and user ratings for the Nighthawk T3 pistol.

Manufacturer’s Description

The Nighthawk T3 is a 1911-style pistol built on an Officer-size frame with a Commander-size slide.  For those with large hands, it features an extended magazine well that gives you the length you need to get all your fingers on the grip. It’s chambered in .45 ACP, .40 SW or 9mm.

Nighthawk says the 4.25″ bushing barrel allows field strip anywhere, and keeps the weight down when compared to pistols of comparable size with tapered cone barrels. The T3 weighs one ounce lighter than most Officer-size 1911s.

Heinie Slant-Pro Straight Eights Night Sights come standard. The mainspring housing, as well as the rear of the slide, are horizontally serrated to match. Nighthawk says this feature helps prevent snags on silk lined jackets and coats that checkering often causes.

The top of the slide is also serrated to reduce glare. A Nighthawk Custom lightweight aluminum trigger that has been blacked-out using Perma Kote breaks between 3.5–4 lbs. with no creep.

Available finishes include stainless and Perma Kote in black, sniper gray, green, desert tan, titanium blue, hard chrome and diamond black.

Note: Nighthawk now offers a variation of this model called the T3 Thin.
