    $800 shipped. On Gunbroker. I’d buy it, but the front sight has been changed out to a fiber optic. And there looks like a shard of metal or something there.

    I see that Vigils are slightly rounded on the butt. Can the MSH be replaced with a standard shaped MSH of another brand, or is the frame rounded too much to do that?

    MSH can be changed out, no problems.
    I installed arched on my two.

    The RS has been changed out as well on the GB link.

    rear sight , he replaced with Dawson front & rear sights. I wonder how well the trigger is fitted after seeing the work he did on the front sight.

    I’m tempted. It’s hard to see exactly what’s going on there but it looks like his “gunsmith” just tried to send the front sight home without measuring the dovetail. It looks like the opposite of the sight is pretty chewed up. I can’t see the slide getting damaged vs the sight unless he hit it with the punch. Might be the deal of the day. Somebody buy this and remove the temptation.

    I think he used a sight pusher that wasn't adjusted right. I think the tool pushed across the slide and damaged it.

    Stippling would hide most all of that.....

    He said he would ship the original trigger with the gun. Rr and front original sights and original grips don’t come with it. He’ll text better pics if you send him a message with your #. I passed because I’d want the tritium front for carry.

    I agree that it could turn out to be a great deal. I’m too OCD as far as blemishes on a gun though
