Fondled this piece yesterday at my office and it is absolutely amazing! I really liked the front strap checkering job how it stops short at the bottom like a Colt. All the fitment and eased edges are going to make this one a dream to shoot & carry, dude, I am confident of that. BTW, thx again for the EB/SF Stealth

I was asked about the $ cost few times.. Pistol plus upgrades, cost more than TRP. I've had a few TRP's, they aren't even close. Seriously, not even close.
This is more, inexpensive, total Custom. The upgrades are done they way I like them. Nothing more, and nothing less. Details. I'm not sure I'd swap this pistol for any. I like it that much. I've already talked w/ SA about a Parkerized version, (Steel). Thanks for kind comments. I hope all of you get to have one YOUR own way.

Wow, beautiful!! ....question about the sights though. I really want the Trijicon HD sights but the rears that come with the set are just huge and they're also a lot taller. How did you get the front site of the HD's to work with the stock Novak rears? I have the same rears (I think... Trijicon Tritium night sights that came stock with my TRP) but the Triji HD from sights are way wider and taller.

Did this completely change your POI?

No. Sights won't change POI. POI never changes. (on a well built, "good" gun) POA changes with sights. My rears are SA stock white dot, NOT night sight.
The front are orange ring around a Trijicon tube. Made by Novak. Contact them for information, they are replacement in stock slide cut.

That looks great. Nice enhancements.

How is is shooting for you ?

I have the Trijicon HD's on the gun that gets most of the saddle time as a carry gun. They were a nice upgrade over the factory sights (not night sights), but I want to try the TruGlo TFO style sights, too. I may put a set of them on my another gun that gets carry time.

Hey Dub!
Hard not to love this one, makes me look good. The lrg, front orange is good for old eyes. esp follow up shots.
I haven't yet, but will go to fibre optics. I like the Wilson true ball gold too.

Yessir.....my eyes do much better with the orange front sight on these Trijicon HD's on my ugly Tupperware carry gun. Pics from this my range session this morning. Ran 46 rounds through this one, too, to finish off the session. Felt sorta odd in hand after having the nice heft of steel framed 1911's fired prior.












I really am tempted to try a set of TruGlo TFO sights on a gun soon. Seems like a win-win with their use of fiber optics + Tritium. Seems like they'd stand out no matter the ambient lighting condition.

I really like the work you had performed on your Springer. Good stuff.

This was done in 2014, the pistol was stock new and I furnished a bunch of the new parts. About a month.
