    Thinking about sending my SS TRP in for some tricking out:

    radical bevel (he said that included a bead blasted satin/matte finish)
    undercut frontstrap "Colt style" (Just like a Wilson looks)
    flush crown the barrel
    install single sided safety

    Said it would take about 8 weeks. I'm leaning hard towards getting it done. I think it would be a pretty cool looking SS TRP. I wish they could erase those hideous looking FCS while they had it. :supergrin:

    Sounds nice.

    They could probably do "Hi-Power" cuts to get rid of the FCS.

    I remember seeming a Loaded or TRP in similar specs except they used the Nickel Teflon.

    I will tell you, the 8 weeks is typically an understatement. I sent a small job in Aug and still haven't gotten it back yet.

    Well, be aware that they will shut the custom shop down soon until the beginning of January. They do this every YEAR - then it takes a little while to catch up.

    Should look great, Joe. :)
     
  17. drop the ambi and that's a very nice looking 1911.
     
  18. I agree. I have no need for the ambi safety and none of my 1911s have them.
