    Thumb safety was poorly contoured.
    The plunger tube was not tight against the frame.



    Ejector was not pinned.



    Internally I found that the lube had congealed to a sticky gunk.



    Feed ramp was shallow.



    No vertical impact surface relief cut.



    Breechface allowed empty cases to be pushed upwards far enough to miss the ejector.









    I enlarged the ejector channel and fabricated a much larger ejector to guarantee ejection.

    Sear face was rough and only contacting one hammer hook.
    Lower corner of extractor hook was over radiused.



    The S&A magwell protruded quite a bit from the rear of the frame.
    I machined off the original checkering making it flush,
    and then recheckered it.

    I am speechless! That is just gorgeous! Thanks for the photos.

What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

    Great work.

    Beautiful work. Looks like a total rebuild. The TRP is a $1,500 pistol. How did it leave Springfield as such a total out of spec lemon?

    I enjoy watching an artist at his profession. How did SA let that one out the door? How common are issues like these out in the wild?
