    So I picked this up used here and there where a few things I wanted to get done to it to make it mine.

    I had Nighthawk change out the sights, 10-8 all black U notch rear, Trijicon HD yellow front, had some Ebony grips made and then sent the grips off to another place to add the Nighthawk emblems.

    Nighthawk lightly sand blasted a "idot scratch" out (I did not do it but it drove me nuts).

    I also changed the trigger to a med size and had the spring plug changed to match the stainless bushing, also had the barrel flutted.

    I was having a slide stop issue, it was rubbing against the top of my Wilson ETM mags, Nighthawk fixed it with flying colors.

    So it now sits in IWB all black Milt Sparks Summer Special, turn out nicely.

    nice looking 1911, looks like the right number of modifications done to make it a reliable and fun pistol.

    Pics front rear showing rear and front sights please. I have the same rear sight and am looking to change out the front.
    Thinking about options.

    Doing the same "make it mine" project you just completed.

    Yours looks real nice.
