    Sorry for the lousy cell phone pics. This is ONE time that a regretted firearm sale had a happy ending. It took 2 years, but she's back home where she belongs. She's shown here wearing polished buffalo bone stocks :D

    She shoots great. The trigger breaks at around 4 pounds. She's been sitting in a safe for the past 2 years and is in dire need to 'stretch her legs'. I sold her to a friend 2 years ago to finance a 'project'. I've regretted that sale ever since. A couple of weeks ago he and I were discussing a recent 1911 purchase of his when he mentioned that he still had the SA LtWt Compact I sold him. It cost me $600 to get her back, but I think it was money well spent. The nite sights are a bit dim and will be replaced. I'm considering either a Harrison or 10-8 plain black rear, opened up to a wide 'U' notch with an XS BigDot tritium front sight. I'm also consideing having the frame contoured and front strap checkered 20lpi.

    $600 is fair. SACS can hook you up on the checkering, they did a great job on mine. It took about 8 weeks. I went with 25 though.

    Update: a call to SA told me that my LtWt Compact left the factory in April of 2001. However, their records indicated that it left with a parkerized finish. Sometime during the 8 years prior to my 1st time owning it, this little Compact has had a 'carry bevel' job done and Armory Kote applied. It wasn't done by SACS, per their records. Hmmmm......
