    I bought this Gunsite S70 SS well used with holster wear. My idea was to own this as a shooter but I wanted to refresh it. I contacted George Piper with Piper Custom Gunsmiting. I liked George's simple, understated perspective while concentrating on reliability and function. I asked him to "restore" the Gunsite. The result was more than I ever expected. The pictures do not do George's work justice.

    Looks good to me! How do you like that wedge mainspring housing? (At least, that's what it looks to be.)

    This is my first wedge which was on the weapon when I bought it (used). I usually shoot with arches and I can't tell much difference. Thank you for the compliment.
