Pink guns: you either love 'em or you hate 'em. But gun companies wouldn't make them if there weren't a perceived market for bling-y feminine firearms. And if you're going to go pink, plenty of women also choose to opt for quality. That's apparently what top-end gunmaker Nighthawk Custom figured when they first rolled out their original slimmed down, commander-sized titanium blue Heine Lady Hawk.
Now Nighthawk's going even more girly and upscale with their new Lady Hawk 2.0 model. The 2.0, which will run you an extra grand over the original Lady Hawk, features pink accents (hammer, trigger, bushing, slide stop, safety, etc.) and grip choices that include materials like obsidian, abalone or zinc. Here's their press release . . .
Berryville AR: Nighthawk Custom, makers of heirloom quality 1911’s, shotguns, and revolvers, is pleased to announce its first of several new models for 2018, by revamping the top selling Ladyhawk line. The new Ladyhawk 2.0 is the first major upgrade to this series of pistols. The slim framed commander sized gun has been a huge hit with women who desire high quality handguns designed for smaller hands.
Available in both 9mm and 45acp, as no cost options, this gun supports full powered modern ammunition in a thin framed package.
