Anyone have knowledge on costs I'd like to add FCS, new hammer and trigger and new front and rear sites to my springfield GI. Or know of any other shops that would do it as well?

If you go to Springfield's Site (http://www.springfield-armory.com/custom.php) you can download their work order, which has the prices.

The FCS are $100

The Hammer would be part of a trigger job, $225 if using tool steel parts.

Trigger - $50

Sights - Depends on what type you want, but around $175-250.

There are plenty of good places for the work you want, http://www.harrisoncustom.com/ or http://www.novaksights.com/ would be worth looking into.

FCS - $100
sights - $60 (3dot milspec sights) - $260 (Novak/Heinie night sights)
Hammer - $50
Trigger - $50

would be better to sell the GI and buy a Parkerized Loaded for $699

Never thought of that, anyone have a loaded they would want to trade for my unfired SS GI?

Also forgot that if you get a new hammer, you'd need a beavertail.

Don't forget the refinish after they cut your FCS. That'll cost ya, unless it's stainless.

I don't really want it to come off that way. For the work listed, I think there are quite a few good places, including SA. More involved work??? Dunno right now.

Me, I'm used to having bad luck.

Springfield does good work anf they have a fast turnaround time.

I'd wait until after the holidays though.

If you want to look at Springfields beavertail, hammer and Novaks on a G.I., check out my thread in this forum. Titled "Springfield G.I. back from Custom Shop" or something like that.

FWIW, vertical front cocking serrations are uglier than normal...

You're coming off better then I would be in your situation to say the least.

I agree there's a lot of gunsmiths that could handle this task pretty easy though.

I'm still hoping to get a gun off to Mars Armament soon.

If Springfield does the work the warranty remains in effect. Something like sights may not be a big deal but when it comes to anything that will affect functioning I would want the warranty intact. Plus, from what I've read, the SA custom shop does excellent work. I also read on other 1911 forums where guys would acquire parts to make a 1911 and then realize they bit off more than they could chew and sent the parts off to the SA custom shop in a box and got a fully assembled gun in return. So it doesn't have to be a SA gun to be worked on by the SA custom shop.

Iagree, I never liked how it looked when I see GI style guns that people have had that done..
