Just curious.
I was thinking about buying a SA champion and upgrading it.
What would be a good direction to go on the upgrades and do you think it might be a better idea to go with the LW Champion?
Thanks. :wavey:

I did a lot to mine. C&S 4lb trigger kit w/ smooth med. length trigger, 20lpi front strap and a few other small things. I'd DEFINITELY knock down the sharp edges on the slide if anythign at all. Springfields machine shop produces some edges that a knife maker would be proud of.

Awesome. What's final cost on the upgrades as well as year. Seems many parts have gone up just trying to figure out final cost overall and if its worth it.

Talk to SACS. They can give you pricing and turnaround time.

If your set on Springer, then its worth the price. If not, get a STI Ranger II. It comes with a nice trigger from the factory, front strap treatment, and single side safety. It can be had for $999 from a few places and in the long run would be quite a bit cheaper than customizing a Champion because on top of parts and gunsmithing, you also have to factor in refinishing which normally starts at $200

That was kinda what I was thinking. I do like the LW Champion Loaded though as well as the LW COperator. I'm guessing those would be better for me to buy than a base model then.

It could easily take you $500 to get a GI or Milspec up to a loaded. I'd get start with the Loaded if you know you're going to upgrade.

Nick is right. If you are using a gun as a base gun, then go with the cheapest!
