    Found that lanyad loop MHS thanks:

    [​IMG]

    Installed a Harrison Short trigger, Wilson Bullet Proof sear, Harrison Ext. Mag catch, a new mainspring, new grip stainless grip bushings, and a set of brown Spriingfield grips. I think the only thing left to do is get the front sight dovetail cut for probably a gold bead, and instal the 10-8 NM rear. I am probably going to just send the slide off and have that done. If I sent it to Lou how do you think it would look if I Cerakoted the slide, hammer, TS, and SS black and left the frame stainless. Would you photoshop that for me when you get a chance?

    Thanks.

    Tail got chopped like a Doberman. LOL

    I'll work on the PS in the morning. Sounds like a good deal Derek.

    Yea lol I like it though. I did have to sensitize the GS a little bit to ensure full engagement with my high hand hold. The hammer doesn't bite me either.

    Need some advice. I am going to get a dovetail front sight for this. A local smith said he would do a Novak dovetail cut for $40. What do you think. Fiber Optic, Brass Bead, Gold Bead, or Tritium? Not much of a cost difference between any of the options.

    Quack has a good link to some cheaper Gold bead sights that looks great, ask him about, thats what I would do. Brass tarnishes, tritium i don't like with replacement(and gold works just as well to me) and I don't like fiber optic

    SDM makes some inexpensive sights but they require finihsing. Not a big deal and they were who I had in mind.

    Cool bro! I am not a two tone guy. I would send it to him for a full black out job!

    Sounds reasonable for the work. I've been running on tritium on all of my guns, but I'm going to try gold next.
