Hey friends!

Welcome back to the blog. Sorry, it’s been a hot minute - life has been a bit crazy with my trip to Texas and other life stuff, more on those in another post! Today I’ve got another first impression for you and in this one we’re going to be looking at the RedWolf Airsoft Nighthawk Custom War Hawk GBBP from my friends over at HC2 Airsoft.

The RedWolf Airsoft Nighthawk Custom War Hawk GBBP is Nighthawk Custom's interpretation of a cutting-edge 1911, officially licensed by RedWolf Airsoft and made into a gas blowback pistol. This pistol is equipped with modern features, including a 20mm pistol rail for torches/lasers, light-enhancing sights for low-light work, and a highly comfortable grip with thumb indentation. Crafted from sleek brushed aluminium, it combines functionality with style.

First, let’s chat about the Warhawks features! It has diamond texture side panels to aid the shooter with grip in cold and wet environments, a threaded outer barrel that makes it compatible with tracer units and mock suppressors, a serrated and engraved slide, a straight back trigger, skeletonised hammer, Beavertail safety to prevent accidental discharges and slide/trigger lock safety. It also has an adjustable hop-up unit.

The War Hawk comes presented in a branded box with its 23-rnd green gas magazine. On getting the pistol out of the box, it has a nice weight to it and that weight feels evenly distributed. The diamond textured grip aids with grip without making it uncomfortable or biting into the palm. The controls are all within comfortable thumb-reaching distance which gives it a great level of usability and ergonomics.

So it’s ergonomic and looks great but how does it shoot? It shoots consistently and is really snappy, the straight-back trigger is sense. It is comfortable to wield and easy to operate/manipulate. It shoots at around 334 FPS (with green gas at around 12 degrees). Check out my range test on TikTok here.

In the box, you get the RedWolf Airsoft Nighthawk Custom Fully Licensed War Hawk GBBP and a 23-rnd gas magazine. From HC2 Airsoft, it retails for £154.99.
