First Look: Nighthawk Custom Korth NXR .44 Mag. Revolver

posted on January 27, 2020

Korth makes spectacularly great double-action revolvers. Co-developed by Nighthawk Custom and Korth, the new NXR handgun features a 6-inch stainless barrel inside a black DLC-finished shroud and frame, over-travel-adjustable trigger, fully adjustable rear sight, and interchangeable front sights.

An under-barrel balancing and recoil-taming weight is user-removable. The double-action is silky smooth, and features a perfectly brief indent at full hammer extension with the cylinder fully locked up, so you can squeeze to that point, then hold till ready to fire and drop the hammer with a single-action-like feel.

You can order this action in one of five settings, tuning that “indent” to suit your preference perfectly. The single-action trigger is tuned to break at 2.5 pounds. The walnut grip is nicely contoured to fit your hand and features the legendary Sheriff Jim Wilson’s signature at the base of the grip. The cylinder release is located near the hammer, enabling the shooter to activate it without breaking his grip. Picatinny rails atop and below the barrel enable simple accessory mounting.

This revolver would make an ideal heavy hunting handgun, and with a scope mounted atop would provide plenty of range and firepower. You’re going to pay as much as you’d hand over for a used car, but trust me, this handgun is spectacular.
