So........here's the Miller Custom Springfield

It started life as a 2006 "mil-spec" model. It's a one owner, he had Bob do the work.
I do plan on having the rear sight changed. I an undecided about the mag well
and the grips.

Wow that looks great, nice pistol!

What sights you thinking of, something that classy deserves a plain black rear and gold bead front.

I would go with 10-8 rear solid sight. This is the GI style, so it will keep within the GI theme...

Looks good. IMO the grips would look better on there without the magwell.

Who makes that sight? I have never seen that shape sight WITH 2 dots (AND white around the tritium instead of silver rings).

That is a super sweet gun!

VZ makes a magwell cut grip. That's a great looking no BS build.

Looks great.


Those sights look like Wilson Nite Eyes to me, may be wrong though.

I dig the grips on there. Have Larry make you up a new set. He can cut them flush with no bevel and no MSH pin cut for the magwell. Would look a lot better.

I like it, but am also undecided on the rear sight. It is a very nice blaster, nonetheless. Congrats!

The rear sight is a Meprolight.....not sure of the model.
I like that 10-8 National Match style rear sight #01-140
Or something of that nature,......and a gold dot front.

Since I plan on keeping with the retro theme, I Will most likely remove the mag well.
Bob beveled the frame's mag well, previous owner installed the magwell afterwards.
Grips will eventually change as well. I'm thinking cocobolo from Esmeralda.

Personally, if you're not going to blend the magwell, I would remove it. I really like magwells, but only if they're blended. Also, I would look at the Ted Yost plain rear sight. It has a very good sight picture and looks terrific on "old School" type guns.

That's the one I was thinking of!

Thanks!
