    It started life as a 2006 "mil-spec" model. It's a one owner, he had Bob do the work.
    I do plan on having the rear sight changed. I an undecided about the mag well
    and the grips.

    Wow that looks great, nice pistol!

    What sights you thinking of, something that classy deserves a plain black rear and gold bead front. :supergrin:
     
  4. Looks good. IMO the grips would look better on there without the magwell.

    Who makes that sight? I have never seen that shape sight WITH 2 dots (AND white around the tritium instead of silver rings).

    That is a super sweet gun!

    VZ makes a magwell cut grip. That's a great looking no BS build.

    Looks great.


    Those sights look like Wilson Nite Eyes to me, may be wrong though.

    I dig the grips on there. Have Larry make you up a new set. He can cut them flush with no bevel and no MSH pin cut for the magwell. Would look a lot better.

    I like it, but am also undecided on the rear sight. It is a very nice blaster, nonetheless. Congrats!

    The rear sight is a Meprolight.....not sure of the model.
    I like that 10-8 National Match style rear sight #01-140
    Or something of that nature,......and a gold dot front.

    Since I plan on keeping with the retro theme, I Will most likely remove the mag well.
    Bob beveled the frame's mag well, previous owner installed the magwell afterwards.
    Grips will eventually change as well. I'm thinking cocobolo from Esmeralda.

    I like the classic look of the gun, but i am in agreeance with the rest about the rear sight. it needs to go
     
  14. glad to hear it, since it's not blended at all.
