RWA Nighthawk steel 1911 with machined rs Heinie tritium sights, stainless threaded insert (to match this two tone oddness), grey Magpul grip panels!

Well well, time to contribute to this fine thread.

 

Springfield armory custom, pretty much hand-picked the components to what suited me better.

Nova parts include magwell, single safety (kimber type), full length guide rod and plug.

Sadly i couldnt find the nova extended slidestop, so that's nineball.

Detonator 10-8 sights and freedom arts fiber optic front.

The kit itself is a PGC MEU and the grips are ready fighter.

 

Only missing a shooter's design outer barrel.

 

Really pretty one mate! I'm just about to come up something quite similar shortly. The Nova extended slide stop is really impossible to find unfortunately!

I just ordered the same Detonator 10-8 sight but please confirm: is the rear sight really lacking that small lever that all the MEU rear sights have? I googled this sight and other than the fact I'm crazy for its shape, the lack of that lever allows me to install a lightweight BBU without machining it to fit an MEU rear sight.

I see a lot of my old pistols.

 

If only you cold find me the plunger tube and the grip bushings.... I'd be very happy.

 

i installed on the Raptor the Altamond Kimber Raptor grips and a complete inner barrel assembly to make it work!

Correct, the detonator 10-8's rear sight lacks that little notch typical of the MEU sight. There, found you a picture of how it looks upside down:

Also, they are an absolute pain to fit to the PGC kit, both the front one and the rear one need serious fitting.

Thanks for the confirmation on this. I'm planning to fit the sights on an RWL Talon, and I think the front one won't fit at all, as the cut for the sight is placed so forward on the slide that this front blade would protrude towards the front too much. So I'll might just pass the front blade and the tritium experience. :unsure:

Actually, to my knowledge detonator doesn't do tritium sights, they are just glow sights (even if some of them have trijicon markings).

You know I don't like it any more than you do, FireKnife. I'm getting a new slide and wooden grips. Right now upgrading this is last on my priority list since other guns need work, so for now it's gotta be ugly.

Finally I managed to find the time to assemble my brass Colt National Match Gold Cup...

It's performing great and kicks like a mule(!) but it's not assembled with the parts I'd like!

 

I'd imagine it with silver safety, slide lock and barrel bushing...

If someone has spare's of these parts please PM me!

 

Also the recoil spring plug doesn't reach all the way to the end of the slide, does anyone what I can do?

The recoil rod reaches till the end but not the plug.

Edit: On second thought I'll install a bull barrel tonight.... I don't like the looks with the barrel bushing!
