So I recently picked up this Springer light weight Compact 45
Below is my build plan. Hopefully I can get squeeze it into the infamous Pistolwrench's schedule.
Here's the plan,

French cut slide,
Ball cut slide,
Recontour front strap, high cut w/golfball,
Match crown barrel,
Recoil spring plug with no hole,
EGW grip safety,
Roundbutt contour,
Carry bevel pkg,
Cut slide for 10-8 sights
What do you all think?
Undecided on finish,......will get that figured out later. Thinking CeraKote.

Sounds good Greg.Just one thing I would do different and that is leave it a square butt,since it is an Officer length frame.A round butt or bob tail might make it a bit too short, for me anyway.

Totally agree. I'd checker the FS instead of golfball too. It's all in what you like though!

If you can talk chuck into it you'll have a work of art! Sounds like a good list to me,

Plan on replacing the trigger with a Harrison or a 10-8, & a C&S ignition set.

.....

Who are you having do the work?

I hope to be able to get it to Chuck for the machine work.

Here's something that I'd love for Ned Christiansen to do on one of my 1911's. For some reason, I really love the conamyd texturing he does on the front strap.
