    I like it. I've got a Springer I shoot IDPA with that I made some similar mods to, within the rules. I don't know how you like the Springer target rear sights, but I just put one of these Harrison Extreme Duty sights on with a U-Notch. It's made for those Springer rear slide cuts with some fitting. Gets rid of all those sharp edges, and I am hooked on U-Notch rear sights.

    That is a better looking U notch than the one on a gun at the IDPA demo bay.
    That one looked like they had taken a square notch and radiused the bottom. That meant it was deep. So I did the natural thing and pulled the front FO spot all the way into the U which caused me to shoot low. Aggravated by the round butt on that model.

    Pretty slick piece. I've never had a dedicated competition gun, I run my carry guns.

    Nice piece. And it looks like you could carry it in a pinch.

    I only played in Open so my guns would have been difficult to carry. Not to mention a lot more expensive to build.

    Well done.

    This is something that I have just started to dabble in. After reading a lot about the divisions and planning some more purchases, I decided that I am going to start in single stack since I already have two custom 5" 1911's in the safe right now

    I much preferred the 'old days' when you basically had two divisions. Those with compensators, and those without. There were no double stacks back then.

    Yea, I'm dating myself a bit... ;)

    I have more than one, dedicated range/competition gun.

    I detail stripped/cleaned this 9mm's that has seen over 12K rds. in a couple years.
    That's not too hard on a gun when you're running (barely) minor loads with a 9# recoil spring.

    It's an old 1991 Colt frame I converted to "70 Series", 25 LPI, EGW and/or Wilson BP parts.
    Slide is a forged Caspian (I cut up OEM slide for an RMR), Dawson FO, barrel Kart.

    I have my first USPSA meet tonight and chose my beloved wife's Trophy Match with trigger work by Nighthawk. I rotate about 5 1911's for competition just because I try to shoot as many as I can to stay sharp with them all. And there are several that will never see a holster but do see many range days. My SA Range Officer does a fine job too at the meets, damn good gun those Springfields! SAM_0118.jpg
