I am quoting a psot from Larry Vickers on the 10-8 forum.



http://www.10-8forums.com/ubbthreads/showf...mp;page=0#56657

Gents



I wanted to let everyone here know that I am suspending the Vickers Tactical Nighthawk Custom 1911 as of March 1, 2008 - meaning that Nighthawk will no longer accept orders for pistol after that date; only the pistols ordered by then will be built



The primary reason for this is I feel the pistol has become too expensive - paying over $3000 for a pistol that I designed and is built to my specs BUT a pistol I don't personally work on is unreasonable in my opinion



I am not sure what If anything I will do in the custom 1911 pistol realm - I will however continue to offer 1911 operators courses as well as 1911 builders courses



sincerely



Larry Vickers

I might be willing to drop 3k on a really good AR, but i'd never drop such a load down for a handgun.

Those Nighthawk prices are pretty out of control. They are excellent 1911's but sheesh. I'll stick with my Les Baer's.

Maybe Mr Heinie should do the same and really send Nighthawk a message about their pricing.

I've known Larry for many years and discussed this with him just a few days ago. Simply put, Larry is a stand-up guy and he'd rather lose money than have his name associated with something that he feels isn't up to snuff.

Larry, I agree with you - I'll stick with Les Baer. I just got a new Premier II and it was as if I had never shot before! It just, for whatever reason, feels totally different. I've been firing 1911's for years, and love my S&W 1911, but the Baer is incredible. I'm trying to determine which LB will be my next carry gun; maybe the TRS Commanche or the Monolith commanche in hard chrome.



Anyway, thanks for having the courage to do the right thing. That testimony speaks volumes for you.

You have to wonder what his specific issues are with Nighthawk. They seem to be well liked pistols although i think they are vastly overpriced.

He said what his issues are. It is a $3200 which prices it out of the reach of many and it is not touched by the man at all.
