    Good morning gents! I am dropping off my Springfield Mil-Spec at a local gun smith this afternoon, and I am having the following done:

    1. New vented aluminum trigger (STI hopefully)

    2. Flat serrated mainspring housing

    3. Titanium firing pin

    4. High rise beaver-tail safety

    Is there anything else that you gentlemen would recommend I have done while my pistol is in at the shop? I kind of like the standard combat hammer, so I would prefer to keep it on. Any recommendations are always appreciated. I will be sure to post some pictures of her post-op :cool:

    checker the front strap.
    it should have a Ti firing pin already
    you'll need a different hammer, for the beavertail grip safety.

  3. or bob the current GI/Mil-Spec hammer.

    For me a hammer and sear would come before any of those.

    Hey thanks for the help guys. Quack, are you sure that the Mil-Spec model has a titanium firing pin? The Loaded states that its a step up from the Mil-Spec, and has an added titanium firing pin...but I can't find any info online regarding the Mil-Spec firing pin. You know a lot more about 1911s than I at no mistake, but I just want to make sure.

    I agree with tool steel hammer & sear before checkering. I'd get a quality plunger tube while it was being worked on too.

    Should be easy to find out. Just break it down and see for yourself. It's easy. :)
