Nighthawk Custom, craftsmen of 1911 pistols and shotguns, has consolidated ownership under one of the original founders, Mark Stone.

Nighthawk Custom has experienced steady growth since inception 10 years ago and has expanded the line from the original 2 pistol models to over 28 different 1911 models as well as custom shotguns, hand-made leather goods, and knives.

“I have been truly blessed in the opportunities that the Lord has given me throughout my life,” says the new sole owner, Mark Stone, of Nighthawk Custom.  “We have established great relationships that we truly value with our employees, customers, and our vendors. Our partnerships with individuals and companies such as Richard Heinie, Bob Marvel, Knights Armament, Magpul Dynamics, Advanced Armament, and Chris Costa, undeniably adds to our level of design and craftsmanship.  These relationships along with strong loyalty and integrity in everything we do have made our future very bright.”

Nighthawk Custom was founded in 2004 by four 1911 enthusiasts and craftsmen that wanted to bring a custom 1911 to the market that was the epitome of the original John Browning design but with a level of craftsmanship unparalleled in the market.  That means a 1911 pistol built with all fully machined components by one gunsmith from start to finish, with his initials stamped under the grip panel of every custom build.  

“The success of Nighthawk Custom is because of our people, our customer service, and the quality of our product.” said Stone.  “Our pride in workmanship, the attention to detail, and our passion for firearms is what makes a Nighthawk firearm a gun that people aspire to own.”
