Nighthawk Custom BDS9 Double-Stack 1911

Nighthawk Custom BDS9

Last year, Nighthawk Custom launched its full-size BDS9. The Boardroom Double Stack 9mm pistol is hand-built for serious performance shooting, and when paired with the Nighthawk Customs ILS Optics-System, lets competitors easily switch among the popular action pistol sport divisions in today’s matches.

Building on a forged government-size frame, the frame and slide are hand-fit for exceptional fit and finish. Correspondingly, the frame and slide feature a silver DLC finish for durability and a pleasing aesthetic. Additionally, the full-length dust cover includes a single-slot Picatinny rail for the addition of a light.

The aluminum grip module features a black anodized finish to provide long-lasting strength. In addition, the grip includes Nighthawk’s new aggressive texture that sticks to your hands no matter the climate. A black finish on the grip, trigger guard, barrel, and controls provides a sleek contrast to the BDS9’s overall finish.

The slide features heavy angle cut forward and rear cocking serrations for easy manipulation, whether wet or dry. In addition, slide lightening ports allow the slide to cycle quicker for fast follow-up shots. Housed within the slide is the 5-inch hand-fit, match-grade bull barrel chambered in 9mm. The barrel features a black DLC coating and is crowned and cut flush with the slide.

Rounds are sent downrange via the lightweight aluminum Nighthawk Custom tri-cavity trigger. Correspondingly, the Everlast Recoil System assists with quicker follow-up shots. The BDS9 comes with two slide stops. One operates like a standard 1911 slide stop, locking back on an empty magazine. The second is a disengaged slide stop for competition shooters who don’t want the slide to lock back.
