    My newest aquisition is a ever so gently used Springfield Ultra Compact for a song and I have made some changes to make it easier for concealed carry.

    Bobbed and dehorned the hammer and grip safety tang, replaced the arched MSH with a flat checkered one from Wilson & added an extended thumb safety from McCormick. Added McCormick slim non-checkered grips & added a Wilson combat trigger. I also added Tritium Night Sights. I love it!!!

    What'Cha Think???

    I'm thinking of sending it off to Springfield to have the whole thing parkerized. I have two other parkerized guns and I love that finish.

    Don, those are some fine looking guns. I really like the Norinco 1911 and the Custom S&W 686. :) I like the Colt Gold Cup that Al built but didn't get to shoot it much the day we picked it up. How's it shooting after break in ?

    LMAO Sam! The Gold Cup is still not broke in! The move to N. Alabam in 2002 has really set me behind in the shooting category! All I do is work when I'm off from work! Now that sounds dumb dont it?!

    Now the Norinco I bought from you is now in my oldest son's hands. He loves it. I bought a 3rd Norinco that I gave to my youngest son. I need to send that on to Al for a look see. It is a little rough action/trigger wise. I just dont have time to do it myself.

    Is Al still doing custom work? I have a job for him. Was thinking about you & Al yesterday.

    Don, Al is still alive and well and doing some great work. As always, he is ready for a new project. He got into cowboy action shooting last year and doing some fantistic single action revolver work. I got to shoot a couple of revolvers he had just completed. In a word.......NICE.

    Give him a call or send him an email.

    BTW, you need to get out to shoot more. :D

    This pic is of an auto ordnance 1911 that I did a little accuracy work on. The pistol was reliable and very accurate. Just after finishing the work, it was traded even for an AR-15. I still miss that one.

    Frame to slide fit was perfect, 3# trigger with no creep, replaced all springs so function was never an issue. I hated the small sights and was going to replace them with BoMar adj but never got the chance before it was traded.

    At least I'm not the only one with an Auto-Ord.....
    This one started out Milspec, the finish is hard chrome. It's been accurized (frame peened/slide tightened), match bushing, Novak rear/Gold Cup front sights, Ed Brown thumb safety, etc.
    Accurate, utterly reliable, faithful companion for over 12 years....
