Springfield lightweight Compact 45

Should make a great project. Plan on having the slide cut for 10-8 sights, ball cuts on slide,
add a S&A beavertail, undecided on front strap, change trigger, add flat MSH & refinish.
It's got some frame finish wear, but internally it's barely broken in!

Thanks Frank' :supergrin:

Not really sure, I do not have a Smith lined up yet.
Will most likely end up with CeraCoat. I want the slide/frame to match.

:rofl: I hear ya, but not this one James!

Thanks guys!

I think most of that can be bundled with his comp, trigger guard and grip safety.

When Chuck told me he didn't golfball the EMP, the EMP was erased off of the wish list.

So Greg, how much will the Springer be worth when it's done being reworked...an Ed Brown or a Wilson? :dunno:.........:whistling:

He told me he would if he had mine and 19 others lined up ! So you buy one and get 18 of your friends to follow you and we're in there !:whistling:

Well,......these were made for a few years. Now you can only get one from SACS for about $1500.
So, it really depends on what I get done to it. First off, I need to find a 'Smith to do the work.
Many like Pistolwrench & Miller are booked for some time. However there is always SACS.

Congrats on the new-to-you pistol. What grips are those? The patterning looks like something I saw at a show a few years back, and I've been looking for something similar for my RIA.

Thanks,....grips are Larry Davidson's Horned Lizards

They are temporary,.....I just had to get the Hogue wrap arounds off.
