    Does any Custom shop these days offer the modification
    to the slide of a 1911 as Armond Swenson did back
    in the Day? I am referring to his 1911 work where he stippled
    the top arch of the slide. He also cut into the slide to make
    room for a S & W adj. rear sight . Of course these days we
    have a lot of 1911s offered with the bead blast or Matte finish
    but it isn't the same as having an artisan stipple the top of
    the slide for a persoanl touch.

    FYI for rookies, Armond Swenson invented the ambidextrious
    safety

    Heirloom Precision aka Ted Yost did a Retro Package when they were Yost~Bonitz. He can probably fix you up.

    You forgot at least one other mod that makes an A. Swenson: the squared trigger guard...Quite a fad back then.....:)
