    New to Me!

    Well after a bit of nail biting and day dreaming, I settled on two instead of one. Budget was $800....paid $792.78

    Took a good bit of cleaning and few shots of Rem. oil, and here ya go.

    S&W mod. 686 6shot


    My fav.


    Came with two 8round Mec-Gar Mags.

    On da Springfield, I replaced the grips to Hague style grips and installed the hex grip screws (flat head ones were all chewed up). The Hagues really improved my stability with this gun...especially in follow ups.

    New Wilson recoil spring on tha way!

    Any suggestions or links to a place I can get fairly cheap sights for this 1911? I'm really interested in the fiber type of sights. Maybe some trigger suggestions? New hammer?
