Nighthawk Custom has once again teamed up with Korth Waffen or Korth Arms to provide Americans with two great-looking new revolvers, the NXS and NXA. Chambered for .357 S&W Magnum, both revolvers use 8-round cylinders.

Available with shooter’s choice of a 4-inch or 6-inch barrels, Nighthawk also carries optional conversion cylinders cut for 9mm Luger. The 9mm cylinders are cut for moonclips for fast reloads.

The NXS is the standard model using all-steel construction while the NXA combines steel and aluminum components for a lighter weight. The NXS has a black diamond-like coating finish on the frame and barrel shroud and the NXA combines black DLC with red anodizing on the alloy parts.

The difference in weight between the two models is about 6 ounces. The full-size NXS with a 6-inch barrel weighs about 50 ounces unloaded. The 4-inch models weigh a couple of ounces less as well.

Overall length for the 6-inch models is 11.6 inches so the 4-inch versions will be a couple of inches shorter. All models have 416 stainless steel hammer-forged barrels.

These will be offered with 4- and 6-inch barrels with all-steel and steel and aluminum construction. (Photo: Nighthawk)

Like Nighthawk Custom, Korth is a world leader in boutique guns. This is a situation where if you need to ask about the price, well…right now Nighthawk only has the NXS listed and the suggested price is $5,199. Other models will probably be in the same range.

Individual dealers may be able to deliver a lower price and there are always deals online, too. But neither Nighthawk nor Korth cut corners, and these are phenomenal guns.

Both the NXS and NXA have fully-adjustable target front and rear sights with rails along the topstraps on the frames and barrel shrouds for optics. The full-length barrel lugs also sports rails for accessories including lights and laser sights.

The barrel housings are fully ventilated to improve cooling and help balance the weight of the revolvers. The NXA’s barrel housing is aluminum to further cut weight in front of the frame while still retaining a full-length underlug and accessory rail.

Other Korth features include a unique cylinder release lever, removable front sight protectors and a modular muzzle design that can accept compensators. These models come with Jim Wilson grips.

Korth revolvers are expensive but built to last over thousands and thousands of full-power rounds. They’re also well-known for their accuracy and shootability in general.

    WOW…. sounds like a bunch of guys that can’t afford and don’t appreciate complete and utter art in a very handsome revolver. I have this gun and can only say, if you have never shot a Korth, you have NO idea how perfect these guns are. Sounds like sour grapes to me! And don’t ever compare a S&W to a Korth. That’s like comparing a Volkswagen to a Jaguar!

    Hey KO, you ain’t gangsta unless you’re rockin at least 30″ dubs. 😂

  • George Dente July 24, 2020, 2:11 pm

    SO, WHAT DOES IT DO THAT THE S&W 686 CAN’T? FOR 4 GRAND MORE!

    • JJ Karn July 27, 2020, 5:50 pm

      Exactly. Smith & Wesson has been making the 8-shot Model 327 TRR8 for years. And it can be had for about $1,000.
      And unlike the safe-queen shown above, the S&W is meant for serious field use. (Just imagine the hours of fun you’ll have cleaning crap out of the slots in the barrel shroud of the Nighthawk.)

    Hate to have to clean that thing every range trip.

    Korth is a botique armsmaker for three groups of people. Group one: Those who want the absolute finest possible firearm and damn the price. Group two: Those who worship at the altar of perfection in machining and fit and finish…Korth is that of a certainty. Group Three: Those who simply want a shootable investment, something that will keep its value over the years.
    Korth is a shop where quality and perfection are the only targets to hit and, yeah they do hit them regularly. Even fourth owner Korths are damned expensive, nearly as expensive as they were when they were new. For an investment that goes bang every time, Korth is the maker.
    (Wish I had one…)

    Their prices aren’t their High point but then again they are not a Hi point.

  • davud July 24, 2020, 11:16 am

    for a $5k revolver, you’d think they could manage better photoshopping.

  • txchief July 24, 2020, 9:08 am

    I love my Korth pistols and revolvers, but the problem has always been a ridiculously long wait time for them. The aesthetics of their most recent offerings also trend more towards a video game blaster, rather than timeless beauty. It’s a shame…

  • shrugger July 24, 2020, 7:31 am

    WEW! That price guarantees I’ll never buy one. Even if I had the money to do so.

  • Norman Dvorak July 24, 2020, 6:19 am

    Too much money for a pistol!

    • bison1913 July 25, 2020, 6:49 am

      Norman Dvorak… $18,000 for a Honda and $450,000 for a Ferrari. They are both cars… so what’s your point?

  • KO July 24, 2020, 3:32 am

    Like an AR-15 decorated into the Christmas-tree zone, this thing reminds me of a mall-crawler Escalade with 38″ tires on 24″ rims rocking a winch-up grille guard, a snorkel, and a roofrack festooned with 10kw worth of LED light bars.

    On the other hand, to each their own. Murika. F yeah!
