I would like to preface this article by letting you know that I have a birthday coming up. I am just kidding, of course. But in all seriousness, it’s next month, mark your calendar. When it comes to guns and knives, I’ll admit that I tend to steer towards utilitarian models. However, like the next guy, I do like to dream build and look at works of art. For this reason, I have to share with you the Nighthawk Custom Treasurer, the stuff that dream building is made of.
The Nighthawk Custom Treasurer
The fourth installment in the Boardroom Series 1911 family, the Treasurer looks like something you would expect the CEO to carry. Building on an officer frame, the Treasurer is chambered in 9mm with a 3.8-inch Gold Titanium Nitride crowned match-grade bull barrel.
The barrel is nestled in a DLC finished slide with heavy angle cuts and forward windows, exposing the gold barrel. Riding atop the slide are a Heinie Black Ledge rear sight, coupled with a 14k gold bead front sight.
The grip on the single-piece frame features matching 25 LPI checkering on the front and back straps. Likewise, custom Ascend grips from Railscales assure a positive purchase and enhanced retention while firing.
A single stack, 8-round magazine helps keep the Treasurer slim, for ultimate concealed carry. Likewise, the Treasurer is completely dehorned for comfortable carry. Finally, rounds are sent downrange via the lightweight aluminum Nighthawk Custom tri-cavity trigger.
The Nighthawk Custom Treasurer is available now, with an MSRP of $4,599.00. For more info, please visit NighthawkCustom.com.
