If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
We've gotta' talk, 'cause that SDM Gold Bead front sight sure would look good on my own "Perfect Carry Gun". Is its height measured from the top or the bottom of its base? Whew! That's one fine lookin' fight-gun you've built there. Well done!

Very Sweet! Love it.

I love stealth elegance. Nice little appointments that is elusive to all but the trained eye.
That is a pistol I would be proud to own and carry.
Could you be so kind as to shoot me a PM with a "ballpark" price for similar work on a well used but functionally sound Colt Officer's model?
