I guess now I have to ship it to Dane for some frame and dust cover recontouring, frontstrap serrations and a general de-horn.


-McCormick hammer and sear
-Videki solid aluminum trigger
-Serrated flat mainspring housing to replace Springfield's turn-key safety system
-Heinie Slat Pros
-Colt recoil system replacing the full-length guide rod
-Wolfe springs throughout
-Ivory grips



Once I get a few more projects off the books, I'll have to drive up and drop this on Dane's doorstep.

OK, I am obviously doing something wrong with the image code. Suggestions?

Why did you choose the CMC MIM parts to replace the Springfield MIM parts? Did they provide a better trigger pull?

I encourage you to do the dehorn yourself, it's not hard. Some files and sandpaper will do the trick. Dehorning is rather subjective, and it's a good place for you to control what and how you want the gun recontoured.

I went with the CMC parts for two reasons:

1. The original trigger pull was 8 pounds plus.

2. The original parts were ugly. (Subjective, I realize)

The CMC parts resulted in a crisp, 4 pound trigger pull.

I don't want to do any carving on the gun that would require refinishing just yet. I don't like the frontstrap contour of the Springfield, so I will have that Colt-ized when I have the high-grip mod done.

Besides, like Harry said, "A man's got to know his limitations..."
