Help with 1911 Nighthawk ID

At work a customer came in with a Nighthawk 1911 and wanted to sell it. I looked the gun over and it is a nighthawk frame and barrel but the slide has no markings what so ever.
Looking on the internet I have found several pictures of Nighthawks but every one I looked at had some kind of markings on the slide. The slide matches the blueing and color of the frame.

At this time I cannot ID the gun to make a offer. My fear is that the slide may have been replaced at some point. It has a Trijicon front sight but the rear sight is just plan black and not adjustable.

Any one a idea what I am looking at?

the release side of the slide appears to have been filed/worked down to remove mfgr. stamping......and reblued.........which would mean you have a frankenstein
