Thanks for the hardhat info.

I hope to have the funds to get my stainless Colt OACP done in HH.

What orange paint did you use for the front sight.

I used neon green nail polish and sometimes that color is not the best with a yellow grass back ground.

Pic of the front sight orange at your convenience.

TIA

Krylon Brights Fluorescent Paint Pen. Initially the paint would quickly wear off especially when cleaning the pistol. Invariably solvent would wind up on the sight. Coating the paint with clear nail polish has slowed this process. It's still going to be a maintenance item. When painting, using a toothpick will help to remove remnants from the tritium tube. The below photo is prior to the Hard Hat treatment of the slide and use of clear nail polish. Compare with Trijicon HD on a Glock 21.

Wilson Combat CQB
Recently sent back to WC for refinish and new night sights, looks like new again. Almost wish I had left it as is, it had character.

Bone stock, it's a Wilson, what can you do to it to make it better?

Having been on the receiving end of several depositions for lawsuits I suggest that you look hard for a pistol that comes from the manufacture with the features you find desirable. Buying a pistol and adding features opens lines of questions for opposing attorney's. Things like "your gun was not lethal enough the way you bought it, you had to make it a better killer right?" I know that there are a host of replies to those questions and their like, it just is easier if you buy the pistol from the factory and then the answer is simple "I bought it that way". I do not apply this to the grips and sights.

I agree. Thank you for sharing.

My Colt 1911 is totally stock. I Might get night sights put on but it seems cost prohibitive. Its a commander and the front sight is not dovetailed. I believe they call it a staked sight.

Infinity Single Stack 1911 in 45 ACP. It's stock, but their stock isn't really stock.

Either a Springfield Professional and a Professional Light Rail depending on what the duty assignment is.

This is my recently refurbished 5" Caspian 1911 built by Dave Lauck of D&L Sports. The mods were a heavy duty barrel bushing, new ignition parts, new barrel, gray matte finish over hardchrome. My addition are the VZ Operator grips.

Before retiring my department issued sidearm was a Colt Gunsite Pistol. The only changes I made to it was to replace the thin stocks with standard stocks, and to install night sights.
I was rehired by my department as a "civilian" employee who, by my work assignment, am still required to be armed. With my current work assignment being plainclothes, I put the Gunsite in the safe and began carrying a personally owned Colt Defender. The Defender has been upgraded with a checkered mainspring housing, S&A BT grip safety, extended thumb safety, Wilson checkered & rounded MSH, short trigger, steel feed ramp insert, serrated top of slide, and refinished in Ion Bond. With the exception of the trigger, all FC parts remain stock Colt.

When I was with the SO, completely stock. We were allowed stocks if it helped with qualifications. Any work to our handguns had to be approved and done by the dept. armorer.
No exceptions.

Thin grips put on my Les Baer Custom. No other modifications and it shoots like a "house ah fire".

What holster are you using?

Same question applies to the rest of the guys running a WML, more specifically a TLR-1
