    Nevermind the trigger. It needs to be sand blasted. The colors are Desert Warrior Tan and Flat black. Better pics to come.
    Thanks for looking.

    In pictures #2 and #3, it looks like he retained the originals.

    Do like they do in the oilfield. When it gets dirty: paint it:tongueout:

    I'm pretty sure Trijicon makes sights to fit the factory dovetail, not sure about the Springfield tenon.

    You could send the slide to Novak and have a set of their sights put on. It's look good with the beavertail and all. They could also lower and flare the ejection port.
