I'm expecting to be getting a new-to-me 1911 soon - maybe this week, maybe next month - which will finally enable me to part with the one I have now long enough to get some more work done on it. I had a trigger job and reliability work done by a local guy over the summer, and it is reliable and I like the trigger. Now I'm thinking of other stuff I couldn't afford back then. The gun is a SA loaded. 1. 25/30 lpi machine checker front strap 2. Refinish in Cerakote (or equivalent), 2 colors, one color on frame and slide and another on bushing, hammer, and trigger. I think the inside of the dust cover would have to be filed some because there is evidence of rubbing. And there is a small patch of minor surface rust under each grip panel. 3. Replace staked front sight with a gold bead sight. I'll keep the Novak rear. 4. Light dehorn, just break the sharp edges, nothing like a "melt" or anything. 5. And finally there is a treatment that I have seen on other 5" 1911's and don't know what it's called, but I like it a lot. It's simply rounding off the MSH and grip so as to get rid of the sharp angle at the tail, not a bobtail, just rounding it off. That's in order of importance to me. Depending how fast it adds up I will drop things off the bottom of the list to get back into my budget. I know a lot of guys only want to do bigger jobs, full builds, etc. But for anyone who'd take this on what kind of dollars would I be looking at for this stuff?
