Nighthawk is  relatively new to 1911 scene but has made a big impact in the short time it has been around.  They have partnered with Richard Heinie to build 1911s under his supervision.

Pictured above is a 10mm long slide.

No other gun is more copied and made by different manufacturers than the 1911.  Starting with this entry, I will be listing all the manufacturers I become aware of, past and present.
