    Mutley

    Kind of a work in progress, like your own kid can't be ugly.

    New Fusion frame, used Colt slide, grab bag GI parts, added beavertail, flat MSH I bobbed the hammer and worked the from sight down. I did the Frame/slide and Fusion did the new barrel/link fitment. I may add a Commander hammer or a set hammer/sear/S spring, etc. Hack job home cold blue for the time being.

    While fun and interesting, a SA Mil-Spec with a hammer/beaveertail would have been cheaper--haha--

    And one pic to warm up those in the cold

    Sister slide, not sure if I will hang on to this one, debating it.

    How are those Fusion frames? I have a couple 779 slides I'm sitting on, to include a mint never fitted national match one, that I've considered doing a build with.

    While I'm no expert on these, I didn't see any imperfections with machining, etc. All holes were clean and no issues with function with the parts. I got the one with the radius for the beavertail. That's their BT, I would like a bigger bump on it though.

    The SA Mil Spec would've been cheaper- likely so. But you'd have missed out on the experience and knowledge gained.

    Consider having "a buddy with a Bridgeport" mill slide for Novak dovetails. Your sight options will be much greater.

    Have you fired for function?
    And regarding the BT "Bump"; as you get older you'll find the desire for a larger one subsides.... (:

    Let us know how it shoots.

    Yeah, was/is fun. It fires great, about 200 rounds trouble free and likes the 230 ball with 5. HP38. I did file in serrations on the front to help and may look into the slide milling for better sights. I will eventually add a Commander hammer or maybe just get the C&S set.

    Well done.

    Consider John Harrison's Hammer, "True Radius" Sear and disconnect.
    Very good parts and an excellent "trigger" is virtually assured. Not to mention, he is a good guy and goes the extra mile to take care of his clients.

    Does he cut the dovetails in the slide? That front is welded in, nothing a grinder wouldn't solve before the milling.

    Guess so, looks reasonable. Well, time to go sling some shrimp!

    Sure he can/would, but I’d call him for a time frame/cost.

    Bulk of his biz is full customs and his parts sales.
    Novak’s is pretty reasonable for dovetail/sights with usually quick turnaround.
