About Nighthawk Custom 

 

Nighthawk Custom was formed in 2004 by a group of four talented individuals who had a true passion for the 1911 platform. As the company grew from those original employees to approximately 65 full-time employees today, our selection and assortment of 1911s has also grown. Nighthawk Custom expanded the product line from the original two models, the GRP and Talon, to over 40 unique and custom versions of the 1911. 

In addition to 1911 pistols, Nighthawk also manufactures top-of-the-line tactical shotguns based on the world’s most popular shotgun platform, the Remington 870. 

Finally, Nighthawk Custom began offering a line of revolvers in 2016. These top-tier revolvers were the result of a collaboration with Korth-Waffen of Lollar Germany. Because Korth revolvers are known worldwide for their unrivaled quality and value, a partnership between Nighthawk Custom and Korth was a naturalfit.

About Alien Gear Holsters:

In 2010, Thomas Tedder’s firearm slipped from his holster and clattered to the ground in a Chucky Cheese parking lot. This unfortunate mishap drew attention from nearby patrons. 

Knowing that he could no longer depend on someone else’s holster. Tedder began to build his own from the confines of his kitchen. As business grew, the young inventor moved his operation to a shed in his backyard. Over the course of five years, our team has built Alien Gear Holsters into the leading concealed carry holster company. We moved into our new facility in Post Falls, Idaho, in November of 2016.  We have kept our values intact through this time of growth.
