    I finally had some time over the last few days to work on my guns. Nothing major . Replaced Wilson hammer & sear with STI tool steel commander hammer & match sear and 10-8 rear sight. Did a minor bobtail and knocked a few rows of checkering off the bottom of the front strap. Refinished in Armorers Black Cerakote.Also installed a new set of LD horned lizards and flush cut & chamfered barrel and same to Kimber Warrior.Kimber also got a set of 10-8 & XS Big Dot front

    Why did you remove some checkering?

    Thanks guys. Sometimes it hard with my family schedule & working on firearms for a living to have the time & desire to work on my own guns.
