    So I recently picked up this Springer light weight Compact 45
    Below is my build plan. Hopefully I can get squeeze it into the infamous Pistolwrench's schedule.
    Here's the plan,

    French cut slide,
    Ball cut slide,
    Recontour front strap, high cut w/golfball,
    Match crown barrel,
    Recoil spring plug with no hole,
    EGW grip safety,
    Roundbutt contour,
    Carry bevel pkg,
    Cut slide for 10-8 sights
    What do you all think?
    Undecided on finish,......will get that figured out later. Thinking CeraKote.

    Sounds good Greg.Just one thing I would do different and that is leave it a square butt,since it is an Officer length frame.A round butt or bob tail might make it a bit too short, for me anyway.

    Totally agree. I'd checker the FS instead of golfball too. It's all in what you like though!

    If you can talk chuck into it you'll have a work of art! Sounds like a good list to me,

    Plan on replacing the trigger with a Harrison or a 10-8, & a C&S ignition set.

    I hope to be able to get it to Chuck for the machine work.

    Here's something that I'd love for Ned Christiansen to do on one of my 1911's. For some reason, I really love the conamyd texturing he does on the front strap.

    I got a confirmation from Chuck to send the Springer LW Compact, sending it out on the 5th.

    So here is the finalized build plan,...........for now. Looks like a 4-12 month build time.


    -Recontour front strap & high cut with golfballs
    -Flat MSH with golfballs
    -Match crown barrel
    -Recoil spring plug with no hole
    -Round butt contour
    -EGW grip safety
    -Wilson commander hammer
    -Harrison solid, black short trigger
    -Trigger job, disco, sear
    -Carry bevel pk
    -Cut slide & install Tier 1 sights
    -CeraKote....Sniper Grey
