A lot has changed since the original RWA Nighthawk Recon as the CO2 COVERT OPS version steps it up a notch. The most obvious part is the suppressor that comes with it that sits on a 14mm CCW thread. It also features Nighthawk Custom gator grips which is far more comfortable to hold. The trigger now has a slight groove making it a little lighter than its older brother, the Recon. The outer barrel is much lighter and is now chrome which is very beautiful against the black.
It is powered by CO2 and delivers a very strong recoil kick as well as very effective power of 350fps on 0.2g BB's and the performance is stable and effective even in cold weather. It also offers an accessory rail system for attaching flashlights and lasers for tactical use. This will most certainly make you feel like a spy or an agent as you walk around CQB arenas taking your shots from the dark.
It does replicate a real single stack 1911 with the same dimensions, functional features, field stripping and shooting mechanics. It is designed to deliver solid performance at an affordable price. Removable and re-loadable full size 17 round magazine means you can also practice fast reloads using the realistic slide lock feature.

"First off with the pros of this bad boy,
It makes you feel like a boss when you shoot it especially with the mock suppressor. All metal makes it look and feel great. Field stripping almost exactly like real m1911. Has a decent under barrel mount for lights and laser. Powerful spring in the slide makes it easy to rack as well. Nice weight to the gun, not too heavy but heavy enough. Pistol grips are of a really cool design as well as grippy.
So it comes with huge ugly orange flash hider that is glued on to the threaded barrel. I tried nearly everything to get it off. I tried using pliers but all it did was strip the orange tip as well as snap the outer barrel in half (thankfully it came with a replacement). We tried boiling it to melt the glue, still nothing. I ending up sawing it off in pieces with a knife. Also reassembly was a bit challenging as it came with no intrusctions but YouTube is great. Also replacing the C02 cartridges are ind of annoying because you have to remove the bottom of the magazine to put it in. Basically you will need some tools for this gun. The sound of the slide hitting the end of the suppressor makes the sound of a clanging empty bottle but that isnít really important.
Honestly this gun is really great. The only thing that kept me from giving this 5 stars was the flashhider incident. Other than that this gun is really great. I love it and it feels like Iím a spy when i shoot.
"This 1911 is the bomb. (I've toasted 6 pistols in less than 30 days of use for each one. One was sent back for replacement, but it was refurbished and sent back to me instead.) The quality is superb. Still tight like new after over 15k rounds, . While not the most accurate pistol I've had, It still remains a great quality 1911.
"All around awesome gun but you'll need to take off the glued on orange tip if you want to actually use the suppressor or put on a tracer unit
