Fitted the thumb safety last night, have a tad more blending to do.
Not quite happy with the TS yet. Not happy with the slide stop either,
but considering it is a factory Springer piece, I have no problems replacing it.
Got some range time in this morning, the short, flat trigger is outstanding.

Decided to bobtail the frame. I had the jig on hand, ordered a #2 center bit
& a 25 lpi Ed Brown MSH. Planning on a CeraKote graphite black finish.
Not sure if I am going to have the front strap serrated or checkered 25 lpi.
Forgot to order a 10-8 rear sight......been planning a Les Baer build as well.

Well now you got me started... I had a package from Dawson Precision that helped out too. Installed new .205 tall tritium front and swapped my grips out for these Davidson's I had originally gotten for my Baer TRS. Also worked on the thumb safety engagement as it was a little stiff going to the "on" position. Here's a couple of crappy pics;

Couldn't leave it alone, now could you?! You could've gotten a $400 ATI and be done with it.

I've had a bob-tailed 1911 before and I do like it. Will get it cleaned
up, reassembled & hope to hit the range today.


Thanks for the compliments, it's reallt NOT that hard to do.
It's just a wee bit nerve racking!

Looking great! Now I wouldn't go refinishing or coating that thing anytime soon because as soon as you do you'll change it!

Yep........now if I can only figure out how to shorten the
grip to fit those Officer mags.

The hump on the main spring housing feel good? It looks kinda sharp, like it would dig the hand, or make more for printing.

The arc across the back of it looks a bit odd to me, but the blending is real nice! If it feels good in your hand, then it's lookin sharp.
