I have a Nighthawk Bob Marvel custom. Looking for recommendations for a laser sight.
Want a sight that is dependable and trouble free. Basically one that is accurate and stays accurate.

I have CrimsonTrace on mine and love them. Haven’t tried any others

That was my first thought and I don't even own one.

I have a TruGlo on one of mine and it has held up well.

I've got a 1911 with a Crimson Trace LG-901G with about 2000 rds thru it. It continues to hold zero.
I've also got another 1911 with an Armalaser TR-25G on it. It has about 1000 rds thru it and holds zero just fine.
CT has a 3 year warranty and Armalaser has 5 years.
The CT lasergrip has (of course) a lateral offset that has to be accounted for. But, you are not limited in your holster selection.
The Armalaser is triggerguard mounted, so no lateral offset. Holster selection is more limited.
The dot sizes and brightness levels are comparable.
