    I got my Wiley Clapp back from Dave & Mark & I am blown away! I dropped this off with them some time back. I wanted to go with the classic 2 tone look. The list of work done includes;
    -Weld up of rails for a tight slide to frame fit
    -EGW beaver tail grip safety
    -Flat top & double arrow serrations on the slide
    -De-horn & Carry bevel
    -Flush cut & reverse crown the bbl
    -EGW oversized bbl bushing
    -Ball cuts
    -counter sunk slide stop
    -domed gold bead front sight
    -rear of slide serrations
    -S&A magwell (blended in)
    -new trigger & trigger job
    -EGW thumb safety
    -Ion Bond slide & Hard Chrome frame.
    -polished flats & brushed rounds
    I am very, very happy with the end product! I currently have my 1977 GCMN with Evo now & that is getting a ton of re-working done to it. I cant wait for that one to be completed as well!

    My photos are very amateur hack job with my phone, so please excuse them. Enjoy!

    That is old school cool! I have been tossing around a very similar build idea and it is nice to see what the end result looks like. Pretty solid on the photography too.
