    My apologies for the lack of speed and updates on this. Sarah comes home on Friday. Hopefully by the weekend I’ll have some detailed stripped photos for you.

    Chuck!!! She’s a little scary in her “unique” gunsmith work but it’s kind of part of her charm. I was thinking about having that Dawson style rail installed on her. What do you think?

    Got to bring Sarah home today! Pic dump! Will add some text between the pictures when I can get to my cpu.
    How she’s basically going to be. The magwell will go on another gun.

    The slide is actually in better shape than I originally thought.

    The rear of the slide has some funny business going on. Here you can see the sight cut relief wasn’t straight. I had planned on fixing this but I may leave it.

    barrel is in good shape and making ok contact with the slide stop. With the MGW bushing there no barrel movement.

    The barrel bushing doesn’t fit well so I replaced it with this MGW.

    The trigger and hammer have to go. I’m thinking HD parts to replace these.

    Trigger feels good but it moves around.

    You still have a Dawson style rail here that you paid for.
    If you send me the frame, I'll install it for no charge.
    Couple of days turnaround.
    You will need to pick up the return shipping charge.
    FedEx mandates Priority Overnight.
    If you have an FFL send it, I can return it for $18 or so.

    So I won a $15 Wilson safety off GB and figured I’d install it myself. Well I got it in the pistol but it doesn’t make good contact with the sear and allows the hammer to fall while on safe. So there went that idea. 921F1D2F-F5F4-4450-A3AD-BDF63EEFECE6.jpeg

    Covid and multiple projects going on at once and slowed me down. Should be getting some updates on this ol girl soon.

    No not yet. The light is a surefire 310 clone that attaches via extended slide stop. I’ve had some Covid Related state issues and hadn’t had the chance to call @pistolwretch to get the Dawson rail installed.
