    ... on the next semi-custom. A good friend of mine bought this earlier this year, and has only put 130 rounds down range with it. He is a bit strapped for cash and has been bugging me to buy it for the same price the local shops offered (ridiculously low, but given the current economy...).

    I paid him $50 more than he was asking, just to avoid any buyer's guilt :grin: , and still paid less than $900 for it. It needs a bit of custom work from the Old White Guy's (my) shop. I'm gonna clean up the sear and hammer plus I've got a Brown single side thumb safety and some black micarta grips for it.

    Any grips would look better than those. Nice gun.

    Looks better with different grips. It also got a standard guide rod & plug, but I think I'm gonna hold off on the new safety to see how long this one lasts! :grin: BTW, it runs great with my 10 round Metal Form mags!

    Thanks,

    I'll probably hang on to the factory grips and put them on the pistol for 4th of July and Memorial Days. :grin:

    The different grips certainly change the look. Sounds like a good project gun. Let us know how it does when you start tweaking it. :smilie:
