And after.

Sorry the flash on my camera sucks ass.

I stripped and cold blued it. Got a Wilson combat drop in beaver tail as well, a Smith and Wesson hammer, and a Swenson extended slide stop.

I'll tell you, the slide stop was ****. I started another thread on it. I don't really like the way the beaver tail leaves the gap, and the slide stop looked like it was pulled straight from the mold and hit with what passes for bluing in their factory. I stripped it down, and dressed it with my files. It had a lot of areas where the metal was just rough and unfinished looking, along the edges and on the flats, and even the grooves in the serrations were just ill defined. I fixed that.

I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. It's not perfect, but neither am I.

I also dressed the slide serrations with my files. They had quite a bit of scaling in the grooves from the factory.
Nice job on the 1911,Looks sweet!

Ati fx45 military.

Picked it up about 8 months ago because the price was right. For a cheap import, it is really a good shooter and seems to be very well made

I love my SA milspec. I actually sold the loaded model to get it. IMO, forward serrations were the worst thing to happen to 1911s. I keep wanting to add to it, but it looks so good stock I usually take the parts back off. I added a WC magwell but ended up removing it.
