    Here is a short list of mods I'm sure I missed some mods in this list
    Slide tightened up to rail Since it's a stainless 1911 you can't make them as tight as a carbon steel setup or you will get galling
    EGW barrel bushing
    Action job with Grieder short match trigger.
    trigger pull is 2 3/4 pounds
    Target crown on barrel flush with muzzle
    Ream & polish chamber profile re-machine feed ramp to correct spec and polish feed ramp
    Check and correct link down timing
    Ambi Safety
    Novak night sights
    Front strap hand checkered 20 lpi
    Front strap height raised up
    mainspring housing cut lower to frame and re-checkered
    Magwell opened up and re-shaped with a larger bevel
    Carry bevel on all edges of the pistol with No sharp edges
    Logo's removed
    Bead blasted
    Beaver tail reworked to fit the frame
    Rear of slide fit to frame rails
    new grips
    The pistol still needs more work the top of the slide will be flat with serrations added to the top and rear of slide. So far with these sights the Ruger is shooting about 4" high at 15 yards. That is do to the sights are off a Springfield loaded Not sure if I will go retro and make this one a two tone or just have her hard chromed or all black with a melonite finish Plenty of options to choose. For now the Ruger needs the rear sight changed and keep shooting her to wear all the goodies in. I'll get to the rear sight in a couple days. I'm waiting on the new one to arrive
    So far I'm about half way with the peoject

    Phase two of the work on the Ruger is underway. I'm having the slide re-worked with machine work, swapping out the rear sight. Slide done with a melonite finish(black). For now the Ruger will be a two tone and have a old school look.

    The new rear sight will probably dial in point of aim issues. Easy enough to correct with a new front sight. So I'm back to waiting for work to be done. These 1911's sure can take some time to get them right
