I get bored with the standard carry guns so I wanna blend carry with competition
I know that's part of the reason I bought itCheckered front strap
Figure out what trigger you want
USPSA, you know this, you're in open with the comp( w/o a red dot). Like we did back in the early days of open LOL
You should have a competent 1911 'smith check the firing pin safety parts to verify they're timed correctly to insure the plunger is being lifted completely out of the way of the firing pin as it comes forward.Any other ideas on what I should add for a carry/uspsa gun

No dog in this fight but IMHO this isn’t the Clark Custom of the 60’s , 70’s or 80’s.I was thinking about sending it to Clark custom
I am going to order all new parts except for frame,barrel and slide so any small part or spring is going to be new and fit to the gunBeautiful! That era of the Combat Elite holds a very special place in my heart. And without a trigger adjustable for over travel, I doubt you'll ever have problems with the Series 80 parts - though a check for drag on the plunger as shown in the pictures here is a good idea. Mine has been solid through decades and untold thousands and thousands of rounds. And yes, that's skate tape on the frontstrap. I've often thought about having it checkered, but she's basically retired now...and the tape works great! View attachment 1165538
