In conjunction with the design of the full-size War Hawk® Recon and War Hawk® Compact, we developed the full-size Government model for those that want the traditional look of a full-size 1911 but not the accessory rail that is on the Recon. Built to Nighthawk's exacting standards, the War Hawk® Government is considered by many as the cutting edge of 1911 design. The slide has the same unique multi-faceted slide top and top serrations that come to an arrow point as the Recon and Compact model. The Government model also incorporates the EVERLAST™ Recoil System that allows shooters to go over 10,000 rounds without a recoil spring change. This model comes standard with red fiber optic front sight and a Jardine Hook rear sight as well as a solid aluminum match grade trigger. The War Hawk Government is at a level of quality and features that most other manufactures cannot reach. We urge you to compare this model side-by-side with any other manufacturer at any price point.
