    Springfield lightweight Compact 45

    Should make a great project. Plan on having the slide cut for 10-8 sights, ball cuts on slide,
    add a S&A beavertail, undecided on front strap, change trigger, add flat MSH & refinish.
    It's got some frame finish wear, but internally it's barely broken in!

    Thanks Frank' :supergrin:

    Not really sure, I do not have a Smith lined up yet.
    Will most likely end up with CeraCoat. I want the slide/frame to match.

    :rofl: I hear ya, but not this one James!

    Thanks guys!

    I think most of that can be bundled with his comp, trigger guard and grip safety.

    When Chuck told me he didn't golfball the EMP, the EMP was erased off of the wish list.

    So Greg, how much will the Springer be worth when it's done being reworked...an Ed Brown or a Wilson? :dunno:.........:whistling:
