A lot has changed since the original RWA Nighthawk Recon as the CO2 Covert Ops version steps it up a notch. The most obvious part is the suppressor that comes with it that sits on a 14mm CCW thread. It also features Nighthawk Custom gator grips which is far more comfortable to hold. The trigger now has a slight groove making it a little lighter than its older brother, the Recon. The outer barrel is much lighter and is now chrome which is very beautiful against the black.
