    McCormick was selling them before they got out of the .45 parts. I have an extra in the bag i'm saving for the next build. They were around $50 from Brownells. The front is dovetailed in, a Novack Front blank that I cut to the profile i wanted after my gunsmith dovetailed the slide. He also beadblasted all the parts, stainless and blued, to prep for finish. I'm astounded by the uniformity of the finish, regardless if the part was blued or stainless. The mag release is a slightly extended version in blue that matches perfectly that McCormick used to sell.

    I found these on the 1911 forums, and a poster said they are like the ones McCormick used to sell. Just drop in the factory sight dovetail and tighten. Be sure to sight in first before hard tightening...they won't come off!

    Glad to see you got one without the ugly rail.

    Congrats!

    Ya...thanks...I just can't get used to the looks of that rail! Ugly to meas well! I like the clean looks...which is why I am seriously saving my pennies for that DW Valor...one of the cleanest looking 1911's I have seen in a long time!

    Now if I could get that "TACTICAL" off the dust cover!

    Yeah, I don't like the TRP's "TACTICAL" stamp either.

    I have no idea why SA would stick that on there.

    Me either...really...it's my only complaint with the TRP's...oh well...like I said...I will have to get me a Valor to satisfy my "pure and simple" affections in a 1911...I love how the Valor's slide is devoid of ANY writing other than the small little script, "Valor"...that is just so sweet!

    God, that's a pretty weapon. My local shop has one for $1400 or so. I'm not about to pay that price, but it's nice to have been able to look at one in person.

    Exactly! I am saving pennies for the $1,200 mark...I have seen one for $1,143...not counting shipping or FFL transfer...so I was looking at around $1,185-$1,200...as soon as I get the $$ together...I am snagging one. If I can find one that has a layaway...I'm going that route to not lose out!

    And bac...do you have to keep showing that beautiful Valor! It's killing me every time you do!:supergrin:

    Never mind...keep showing it as much as you want! I'll deal with it!:upeyes:

    Its less an availability problem, and more an available funds problem. :crying:

    For a while after its release you couldn't get one regardless how much available funds you had.
