As a change of pace, I’ve started a rebuild of an LEO trade-in M&P. It’s a box stock 4 ¼" barrel M&P 1.0 with night sights. I got it pretty cheap and it’s in near perfect condition - carried a lot, shot a little, as they say.
I don’t have the scope of work completely decided on, just yet. I know it will get an Apex trigger, some Ed Brown parts, stippling, and slide milling.
My first step is to modify the cocking serrations to remove the waves, so I’m setting up for that. I need the slide level, the mill vice rotated to match the slant on the serrations, and the mill head tilted to match the angle of the serrations.
Here, I’m getting ready to tilt the head.
