Which Mod Should Come First

Discussion in '1911 Forums' started by nolacop, Aug 15, 2012.

  1. If you had to pick the top 3 mods in order for a stock Springfield Loaded, what would they be? Im going to do 1-2 mods, but cant decide which 2 mods would make the most sense. I already replaced the grips with some VZ's and had the front strap checkered. Im good on sights too...as these came with Trijicons.

    With good sights, good grips and a checkered front strap, there's not alot left IMO. :dunno:Having the front strap checkered was going to be my first suggestion.

    Mods that I buy.
    10-8 flat trigger
    10-8 rear sight
    Dawson .100" red fiber optic front sight.


    Mods I do.
    Trigger job, which includes removing the ILS, 19# mainspring and Colt sear spring.
    Check extractor tension & geometry.
    Make a slurry of JB bore paste and oil, apply to the frame/slide rails, rack the slide a couple 100 times, clean, then oil.

    :agree:

    Keep in mind that you aren't going to get anything extra out of it.

    In my opinion, it really makes no sense to buy a Loaded and sink money into it. I'm not sure how much it cost to checker the FS, but you probably should have bought a TRP in the first place.

    I think BAC's onto something. Move up to a TRP.

    Get rid of the ILS. That's always my first mod on any Springer. Just disapprove of the internal lock.

    Other than what you've done, I'd just leave it be and shoot it. See what it might need tweaking from there.

    Good sights and a good trigger. After that it is just window dressing.

    I've been thinking about changing the ambi safety out on mine.
    I put a set of pachymar grips on mine, which I love, so for me no checkering. Only problem I see is the magazine release is hard to manipulate with the grips.

    ETA: sorry didn't mean to hijack. :wavey:
