nice!

Looks good to me. I did the poly80 for the G19 and g27. Easy as pie with a dremel. Wanted to do a 1911 for a 10mm but haven’t dropped the cash on it yet.

Sights were installed today, I’m calling this an, antique, battle worn, truck gun finish

Sights came from @SAK from an early classifieds post we had here,

Thank you,

And @Mosinvirus maybe you can tell me why I needed 2 sets of grip bushings, what a bitch, I broke one from the first set and ruined one from the replacement set.

This is 10mm and fistful of iron , bull barrel, full length guide rod,

haven’t shot it yet, pencil shoots out so firing pin is doing its job

@Robert you should look into Challis bushings and o-rings.
they also sell the tool for them.

The standard ones you should also use the bushing tool on. Less chance of messing them up.
