1/30/19 - This is one of the most desirable Korth revolvers to come to market in the last 20 years - a Korth-Nighthawk Skyhawk revolver chambered in 9mm Para. The biggest challenge in designing a revolver in 9mm Para is the difficulty in devising an extraction system that would work without the use of moon clips, as the 9mm Para cartridge is a rimless cartridge that sits completely inside the chamber. Korth of Germany was up to task and came up with a proprietary system of small individual extractors that work in concert to extract all 6 chambers of the cylinder. Korth teamed up with Nighthawk industries to import these guns into the US in the last 2 years. However, the demand was so high that there is a 3 year order backlog at Nighthawk and there is a possibility that no more of these incredible revolvers would be imported in the future. Designed as an ultimate carry revolver, it has a 2 inch barrel and soft rounded lines to prevent snagging on the holster or clothes. The revolver is extremely light weight at 19.4 oz. The double action is like no other revolver action, thanks to the Korth proprietary trigger action and is apparently almost as crisp as the single action. The gun appears new with probably no more than a few rounds fired at the factory. This is the most diminutive Korth-made revolver and is already a collector item with just a few hundred in existence in US.
