Nighthawk Custom Tactical Ready Series – First Look

Nighthawk Custom has unveiled its latest creation: The Tactical Ready Series (TRS), a line of Fully Machined double stacks chambered in 9mm for those that love high round capacity.

Nighthawk Custom Tactical Ready Series – First Look

The Tactical Ready Series launches with two models right out of the gate, both featuring a monolithic slide. The full-size, government frame TRS Comp features an integrated compensator for control when shooting downrange, while the TRS Commander brings the standard 17-round capacity to a commander frame.

“Up until this point, we have only offered a double stack as an upgrade,” says Mark Stone, owner and CEO of Nighthawk Custom. “With the current demand in the market, releasing a permanent double stack series meets consumer demands and shows customers what we can do with a double stack.”

Nighthawk Custom TRS Comp

The TRS Comp is Nighthawk Custom’s first model designed around a double stack frame. This model features the same integrated compensator as the Fire Hawk, but on a dedicated double stack frame. A precision designed port in the compensator reduces muzzle flip, allowing the shooter to stay on target for follow up shots.

The TRS Comp features a match grade 5” barrel on a government sized frame with a monolithic slide. A full-length dust cover gives the pistol added weight up front, aiding in reducing muzzle flip. The entire pistol has been finished in black nitride for a sleek, durable look. The solid stainless trigger possesses a serrated flat face, providing a non-slip surface when pulling the trigger.


An 18K gold bead front sight does an excellent job catching light, providing quick target acquisition for the shooter, with a Heinie Ledge Black rear sight. The TRS Comp utilizes unique dimples at the rear of the slide, matching the pattern of the grip. These dimples provide a non-abrasive surface that won’t snag clothing when holstering.

Nighthawk Custom TRS Commander

The TRS Commander is the first Nighthawk Custom model built on a commander sized, double stack frame. A match grade 4.25” stainless barrel is housed in a commander frame and monolithic slide. The full-length dust cover provides added weight to the front of the pistol, helping reduce muzzle flip when firing.

A tritium front sight allows the shooter to quickly acquire the target while the Heinie Ledge Black rear sight features serrations on the back, reducing glare. The TRS Commander comes with unique dimpling on the front and back of the slide, matching the pattern of the grip. These dimples provide a non-abrasive surface that will not hang or snag on clothing when holstering.

Pocket carry, as a method of concealed carry for a defensive firearm, can be a practical option when done right. This is especially true during the colder months when heavy outer garments can obstruct access to a traditional waistline holster. Former U.S. Navy SEAL Jeff Gonzales, president of Trident Concepts, joins G&A contributor Kimberly Heath-Chudwin to discuss guns, training and gear, including Blackhawk's TecGrip holster that can make pocket carry more successful.
