My basket case nears completion

2129 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  SSGN_Doc
It began life with me as a basket case, that was missing parts. Over the last six months I have been making changes .

From something like this, (actually started worse than this, tiny sights and missing parts before I took pictures): I added Millet sights, and some parts out of my parts bin to get it running.

To this: New trigger, grips, beveled the mag well, trigger job.

To this: New beaver tail, hammer, more bevel in the mag well, raised front strap/triggerguard, EGW barrel bushing, and a coat of Norrels Moly Resin.

MEU/SOC inspired. I'm considering an ambi safety if I can find one I like. If it needs to be more accurate I may fit a Kart Barrel

Hammer was a take-off part from a friends Colt Commander.
