    I'm about 2-4 weeks out from receiving my frame and slide but I have all my small parts on hand and have prepped those that could be prepped minus the gun so they're ready for a final fit.

    Stainless Classic Rcvr (for the M1911 look)
    Stainless Classic Slide but with lowered Ejection Port, 5" length
    Many parts from EGW and Wilson Combat, mostly
    Kart EZ Fit Barrel

    EDIT: oh, and a Wilson Combat FLAT trigger...gotta see how that feels!
