    Gents,

    Just got this back from EA. It was a build from ACW that I got back literally right before Rob closed shop and moved on to Cabot.

    I wanted to try a few new things and also get some things tweaked on this build, and Dave took the gun in. Modified and installed a new extractor (it's a neat little trick he did) and fit some new parts to help an occasional FTE I started having. Also installed a Yost line sight, cleaned up some yucky Colt lines, installed a flat trigger, and Cerakoted it grey.

    The white VZ grips I had on it (it was originally a blued pistol) look horrible on the gun, so it was currently grip-less. I have VZ Gunner's in black on the way.

    This is my first time with Cerakote and a Yost sight. Must say, I am a fan of both.

    I will be sending another gun to Dave soon for another build!

    Don't quote me on this, but looks like reduced the pad (not the claw) to bend the extractor much further in when comparing it to my Wilson.
