Actually it's not a new gun but i decided to have a few things done to it. It started off as a loose plunger tube fix and having a new safety fitted along with an extractor, so i took it to Dave at southridge arms and he ended up fitting a new safety, plunger tube and extractor. The sights always botherd me, they were standard black Novak sights i was planning on having them replaced at a later time when Dave informed me that he could drill them out and put white paint in the holes so i had him go for it. New fire control parts were next ED Brown hammer and disconnect with a Wilson sear. Now the gun was like new but it didn't look like it so i ended up having it parkerized as well, this made all the diference in the world when i took the gun to Dave it looked a more then a little worse for the ware. Dave also took the time to bevel some of the sharp edges of the slide. Now it feels like i have a new gun trigger is a crisp 5 pounds, positive "click" on the thumb safety, and i can actually see what i'm aming at after dusk. The level of detail to the work done on my gun was second to none, i have had guns worked on in the past and had the armorer tell me "this didn't turn out too bad" and it's like damn i don't want to pay large ammounts of money and wait for months on end to have somthing not turn out too bad. Anyway great gun can't wait to have the next 1911 done up.
