I have custom night sights already but before I put them on I have some final fitting since inside and out every area and part has been coated.

While I like these black grips, aren't the annihilated ones that came with it, they are a worn so I might go with a black hardwood or possibly dark G-10 type.

Here you go. Installed the custom night sights, front dovetail had to be cut etc. and test fired today without any issues.

More research revealed that this was a mid 1970's gun and not an earlier one. This means the slide and other parts etc. are rated for more powerful sub gun 9mm ammo out there unlike the 1972 and older versions.

The only thing left is the EFK threaded barrel and that is shipping with our next batch of barrels on their way here now.
