Nighthawk Custom Korth NXS and NXA – First Look

Nighthawk Custom and Korth have introduced two new offerings, the Korth NXS and NXA 8-shot .357 Magnum revolvers.

Nighthawk Custom Korth NXS and NXA – First Look

The 8-shot cylinder of the NXS includes a cut to accommodate Moonclips for quick reloading speeds. A 6” hammer-forged precision barrel is housed with integrated Picatinny rails on top and bottom. The frame also features a Picatinny rail for the option of a mounted scope or red dot. The NXS features a ventilated barrel housing and a DLC finish.

The fully adjustable rear sight comes standard while the front sight features removable side panels to offer shooters the ability to customize their sights. The NXS has an optional interchangeable cylinder to a 9mm, which also features a Moonclip cut.

Guns & Ammo TV: Shooting 1,270 Yards with the 5.56 NATO

Guns & Ammo TV: Shooting 1,270 Yards with the 5.56 NATO

Guns & Ammo Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand was on location in Idaho where he pushed the limits of the 5.56 NATO cartridge in this segment of “Long Range Tech” for Guns & Ammo TV. Pairing a SIG Sauer MCX Virtus rifle loaded with Hornady's 73-grain ELD-M ammunition, Beckstrand attempted to ring steel set at 1,270 yards, an incredible distance for any 5.56-chambered rifle and beyond the typical range for an AR-15.

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”
