The single-stack Agent 2 comes with two 10-round 9mm mags, a nylon Nighthawk Custom pistol case and assorted literature. One would expect a pistol like the Agent 2 to shoot rather well, and this indeed proved to be the case. Heading to the range, I scraped up a half-dozen different brands of inexpensive ball and more costly 9mm defensive loads of various weights to try. The Agent 2 digested everything without a hiccup, which is more than I can say for some other 9mm 1911-style pistols out there. Given the small round, big gun, and light recoil spring, the Agent 2 was very easily controlled, with the red fiber optic front sight quick to pick up in daylight. Grip was solid even in my miniature hands.
The trigger on the Agent 2 is about as good as I have encountered. Firing five-shot groups from a bench at 25 yards, the Agent 2 averaged spreads of 2- to 2.5-inches, with the best cluster turned in by Blazer 124-gr. at 1.25 inches. A few drills, including some 5-yard roundups, which averaged a score of 95, proved the Agent 2 performs. For the discriminating few who want the distinct pleasure of carrying and shooting the most-custom of custom pistols, and can afford the $4,495 price tag, the Agent 2 may be for you. It’s an easy nomination for a 2018 Editor’s Choice Award.
