I am amazed at the amount of pitting on the parts? I guess the next step will be a lot of wet sanding. It looks good, but pitting is still visible ... I hate me...

I noticed that the sights are NOT molded into the slide, so they should be able to be replaced with real m1911 sights!!

The front is pinned/swaged into place ALA real gun, but I cant see just how the rear is held in yet, as I have not figured out how to remove the valve assembly from the rear of the slide.

Talk to me about it :evil: the front one flew out during recoil and as been missing since :evil: it left two ugly holes where it was pinned.
You think regular 1911 parts could be fitted there?

Im positive..these guns, the more i tear into it...are so identicle to the real thing....even the bloody triggers look swapable!!

The only thing you would have to do to installe a stock 1911 sight would be drill the hole out bigger, as all the stock real sights ive come across are 1 large pin not 2.

Still trying to figure out how to get that valve block out from the rear of the slide!! :evil:

Got it figured out...and I feel like an idiot for not seeing the forest for the trees............what looks like athe end of a dummy firing pin, is actually an allen head screw!!(cant belive i didnt notice the hex pattern :shock: )

Its held in with a bit of loc tite(or glue) but will come loose with a lil twist. Once out, You CAREFULLY lift the whole assembly upward, but be sure the long side spring does not rocket out...cuz, it will :lol:

Once out You can see the rear sight is held in by 2 phillips screws.

I had originally planned to strip and polish mine, then add some white or fake pearl grips to it. But Im too scared of wrecking it, so Im going to wait until I can find a used one for cheaper and try to do it with that one.

I just stripped the slide.....inbetween shiney and satin...lots of poilishing by hand on the way....lookin good so far!! I may cut the ejection port down more, pointless as its not real..but, adds to the look :D

Pics to follow.

Im really interested to see it stripped. I still may do it to mine, but I quite like the finish on it from the factory. Much better than the GSG. Plus if everyone starts to strip and polish theirs, it wont be unique for me to do it to mine :P

Not the best pics, but then again...im not feeling the greatest right now, so I snapped these quickly.

Stripped with 120 and 320 grit, and wire wools of coarse and 0000 grades. Polished with the wools and then finished off(for now)with a polished of 0000 wool with drops of turtlewax chrome polish. The last step removed a fair amount of the sanding scratches and has left it with a nice satin finish. I will probably go for a higher shine when im done modding the slide.
