Looks nice. I like the round butt.

I looked for a GI, Mil-spec, or Loaded NM sn gun yesterday at the gun show. No dice. (did they even make GI's with an NM sn?)

If you want to keep the parkerized look, Sniper Grey Cerakote matches the old parked finish pretty well. Just food for thought. Or, what color were you thinking?

It's going to be a bit of a project gun, I have the following planned:
-Round butt or bob-tail still undecided
-Sight change, 10-8 or ???
-Carry bevel, very light, just knocking off the sharp edges
-Thumb safety blend lever upon install
-Blend slide to frame at rear
-Blend GS fit
-Harrison short trigger
-Blend contours of slide stop
Will have to farm out the refinish, plan on CeraKote

Go with a round butt. Bobtail's are for Commanders IMO.

Scratch that idea. I just reminded myself why...Guess a Springfield HP is the only option.

Got a little more accomplished on the Loaded today. Worked on the trigger guard, knocked the edges
from the slide & slide stop. I also relieved the trigger guard to front strap slightly, it's very subdued.
Will work on the barrel bushing a& thumb safety tomorrow.
Small parts are practice, do not wish to screw up the Wilson Combat slide stop & safety.

Nice. Nothing classier than a nicely blended GS.
