I've been looking around and I'm thinking maybe a Wilson Combat hammer, G.I. style guide rod, night sights, wood grips and a parkerized looking finish. Does anyone have a picture of what that would look like? Doesn't have to be a Taurus.

also added a S&A mag well mainspring housing, changed the MSH stock 17.4lb stock main spring for a 23lb spring, and added a EGW small radius bottom firing pin stop to perceive less recoil and to return quicker to battery.

To date I have about 18.5K rounds though it with all the original pins, extractor, ejector, trigger, and fire controls bone stock and with out any FTF that could not be attributed to my reloads not being crimped correctly or bad brass, and no FTE what so ever.

It will print a cluster like this on paper at 20 yard all day long

I'm in love... that's what I want, though not the grips I had in mind.

Would you mind giving me a rundown of what you've done? What kind of finish is that?

That is a bead blast on a stainless gun. Had the rollmarks removed. New fiber optic front sight, millet adjustable rear sight, removed the ambi and switched to a single safety, and replaced the lockable Taurus hammer.

GUD JOB!
I'm a fan of a GOOD magwell myself - Grips & magwell/MSH are all I did to mine-

Some of the best wood grips I've seen.

I like the color case hardening, not sure if it will hold up though....
