    I picked this up from J&G Sales in November, intending to use it to learn a few new gunsmithing skills.

    I stripped it down completely and refinished it in Moly Resin, cut the slide for Novak sights (the scariest part of this project), removed the magazine disconnect, de-humped and polished the feed ramp, and installed an ambi safety from Cylinder & Slide.

    If it shoots as nice as it looks... you did yourself proud Jesse. As much as I like the stock grips for feel, that gun may deserve some swankier grips... ya' think? ;)

    Thank you :)

    I agree, grips are the final thing on the list.

    Beautiful! May I ask what you used as a replacement safety? I have an FM-Highpower that I am thinking of replacing the hard to use safety knob with a cylinder and slide extended safety. I like the one you used - is it the same one?

    Wow, that is excellent. It looks like new, except with much, much better sights!

    Nice...looks like a Browning Hi-Power Practical but for much less money with much better sights.

    Just my .02,
