A while back I picked up a Predator 3 for a great price because it had some custom engraving on it. I called Bob at Nighthawk to get an estimate of what it would take to remove the engraving and re finish the gun. Well in typical addict fashion I decided to make a few other changes. The gun originally was stainless with black controls. Not to my liking. So I had all the black removed and replaced with the tactical stainless controls and a one piece magwell. I also had them chamfer the slide stop, bevel the bottom of the slide, and add a French border. Well it arrived home today and I think it looks awesome.

rj: I remember that piece when it 1st came to market & I passed on it because of the aforementioned engraving.

Glad you ended up with it and you had the intestinal fortitude to turn it into what it is now. Beautiful!

Amazing shooter. And just plain damn cool as hell.

All compliments to the gun. A real super duper job to resurrect a beauty. But, super compliments to the guys at Nighthawk for the outstanding work.
