Does anyone have any pics of Springfield's low-profile 3 dot combat sights? I know what the regular 3 dot combat sights look like as they come on the mil-specs. My GI is going in for some warranty work so I am going to have a little upgrading done.

Wow, I so want one now... I'm not a lefty, but always good to have an ambidextrous option in case you're shooting with your weak hand...

I bought this about a month ago and added the 10-8 rear sight and trigger.

Here's the work that was done to it when i bought it.

This Springfield TRP is a very nice custom 1911. It started out as a factory TRP gun with a checkered front strap, Novak night sights, ambi safety, extended mag well, front and rear cocking serrations, etc. It was then sent back to the factory and had $710 worth of Custom Shop work done. It has had a Nowlin match barrel and bushing added, custom fit frame to slide, replaced slide stop and safety, custom match hammer and sear, 3.5 lb trigger, and completely refinished in Armory Kote. It includes the factory box and 3 Wilson ETM 8 round mags.

That's a sharp looking pistol Quack! I bet it shoots even better than it looks.

Well I just though that I would chime in with my LW operator that I just got back from the custom shop. I had the front strap hand checkered at 20 LPI, had the trigger tunned to 3.75lbs. and had it refinished in a Black/Green T finish

Hope nobody minds me posting the enemy brand in here. The Custom Shop installed my parts plus made it a little more reliable. They also Armory Koted it and polished the outside of the barrel (tiny amount of rust before).
