    I just had to put it here



    Actually, if you Knew For Sure that it had no other work done on it then you could have the top of the slide FLAT TOPPED & new sights PROPERLY INSTALLED and make a nice gun of it.

    I would HATE to see how the other internal work was done if that is how the front sight was installed.

    OH...and I LOVE the Seller Description that just said: AS IS NO RETURNS. haha

    Qk is right you could maybe get it flat toped or put a Clark Rail on it.

    But i'm sure inside's been butchered

    Can we say ''butchered'' - yes we can - Bud already did!

    I have seen some less than stellar home jobs on guns but that is seriously in the lead for an award! I would, like others, be very leary about the rest of the gun - like grinding of hammer, disconnect etc - ''just to lighten the trigger, doncha know''!!
