Hi all,If any one remembers i bought a High standard 1911 government model weapon a while back.I chose to buy this gun after looking at a few and chose it because of price, since I intended to use it for carry and to experiment with a little home gunsmithing and didnt want to foul up an expensive hand gun.I got it home took it apart and realised it was a bad gun.I mean not top notch but fair for a little over 400 dollars.now I know what you all are thinking I dont know a good gun lol but I do have some very high end guns and some mediocher ones this one falls a little better that middle of the road out of the box for a plain Jane gun. for this reason I have been carrying for a while . Ok enough back ground to the heart of this.
I got online ad after a little looking for what I would like in a hand gun both looks and function I set out to improve this cheap filipino gun.
i was going to add photos but there to big and i have no idea how to make them smaller so ill just give you a list of improvements
1) I order a willson trigger ultra light match long with adjustable over travel part number 190
2)A high ride beavertail also from willsons in stainless part number298s
this part requires some cutting of the frame and should be done with the jig you can order from the same place as the parts unless your more confident than i was
3)stainless tactical mag release part number31ts A word here this part needed some enlarging of the right side of the frame time consuming since you dont want to over do it or it will operate sloppy
4)A ultralight skeletonized hammer also in stainless #337s
5)extended thumb safety #6s stainless
6)and an extended slide release also in stainless
So far total cost of parts from midway under 200 and a little of my time .You might wounder why all the stainless on a Matt black gun well i tell you it looks so sharp lol also found a guy in south Jordan Utah that will Teflon coat my frame and slide for 45 dollars so im thinking it will look real good a operate slick only things to do before sending off to coating is to have the slid cut for a slide in front sight and finish taking burrs and tool marks off the operating surfaces
if this post is too long feel free to delete it you wont hurt my feelings
