Sent my P2 1.5'' to John Harrison a while back. It's nearing completion.

Here is what he is doing.

Fit and install H-D rear sight to correctly machined Bo-Mar sight cut

H-D Hard Use rear sight with bar style tritium lamp, for BoMar BMCS
sight cut

Remove existing front sight, fit & install sight blank to existing
dovetail, machine blank for profile & height. Serrate face to 50 lpi.

MGW Dovetail front sight blank

Install tritium lamp in dot configuration in front sight

Serrate top of round top slide 30 lpi

Machine french border at top of slide flats, -w- deluxe interrupted cuts

Checker bottom of trigger guard 30 lpi

Checker front of trigger guard 30 lpi

Fit S&A mag well and blend to factory beveled mag well opening

Refinish pistol in Master Blue (2000 grit)

Fit extended mag catch and machine inner face so catch won't trap
ejected magazine.

Ed Brown extended mag catch, blue

Ok. it's done.

Thanks. It was always a great shooter. The new sights will be easier for me to pick up. And it will look awesome. The original blueing was kind of thin.....................

Nice!

John does amazing work, he is truly a master pistolsmith.
I hope that one day I'll be the proud owner of one of his custom guns.
