    20190211_104034.jpg I'm sending my Wessons back to the factory for ambi safeties. I've been in contact with customer service. A question for all you Wesson pros. Is there any other thing else I should have done while they are there ? View attachment 220339

    For blingness, they could Clark rib the top of the VBob slide if you wish.

    I am a fan of flush cut/reverse crown barrels.

    Gecko is right, I had a Specialist that had the bottom of the safety extend below the contour of the frame, slicing my web. My next Specialist, and my Classic C-bob, are perfect, but it is worth relaying to them in advance. I also like the serrated top rib, reversed crown barrel, and countersunk slide stop

    You could send them 2 medium flat triggers from Chambers Custom Pistols for fitting,

    Do they have to refinish the pistol if they rib cut the slide and recess the slide stop?

    John, what sights are they? My buddy Rod442 on here just got his beautiful CCH/Blued Valor 9mm & doesn't care for straight 8 sights.

    Thanks

    I don't believe this is necessary on stainless. DW would let you know for sure, if needed bead blasting ain't too expensive.

    In our defense, unlike Uncle Sugar you actually get something for your money. :)

    Make sure to have them blend the TS on both. Also a Wilson Combat Flat trigger for both.. Also I don’t think a Clark rib is possible as the sights are already cut. But The sight cuts are Novak Trijicon makes them for sure.
