Went out one day looking for a blued mil spec and ended up with the NM prefixed loaded instead. Got a great deal trading in a shotgun that my wife didn't want but then a project was born and spiraled out of control.. I fell into the MIM is garbage crowd and stripped it down to frame/slide/barrel and bushing. Plunger tube was poorly attached and somewhat bent. I went with Hilton Yam's recommendation on parts from his webpage and started ordering parts. Got a bug and wanted to try checkering too. Wilson BP firing pin stop Wilson BP firing pin Wilson BP extractor Cylinder and Slide ignition set and hammer strut 19lb mainspring STI short Trigger (have a med length Cylinder and Slide too) Ed Brown pin and spring rebuild kit Ed Brown plunger tube housing Ed Brown Grip screw bushings Ed Brown Mainspring housing Ed Brown Thumb safety (this is temporary and kind of crap) Ed Brown standard recoil spring guide / plug Wolff 17lb standard recoil spring 10-8 Slide Stop 10-8 Rear Sight 10-8 grip screws 10-8 mag catch Dawson Precision front sight (wrong one, need a ramped) VZ black cherry double diamond grips I probably forgot a few things but this is the just of it. Put it together but still need it bead blasted. Ordered a Novak's thumb safety as the Wilson BP is shaped funny and gets somewhat poor reviews on finish and the EGW is out of stock till the end of time. The Novak's is the perfect shape but has the logo, but I can live with that. After sight in and I know the proper height I will order a correct front. Other than that it's pretty much 95% complete I figure.
