    You chose a really nice gun. That one and it's W. German 226 brother will stay in my family.
    I swapped out the thinner factory M11A1 trigger for one that came from an older model P226. It just fit my hand better. Ten minute deal. Also, the G10 grips from Hogue made a difference in my case.
    See how easy it is to spend other peoples money? I should work for the government.

    I have some Hogue slim rubber grips coming, really cheap and thought I would try them first. The stock grips are just to abrasive for me.

    The G10's are more abrasive than the stock plastic ones that came on the gun.

    Forgot to post my new "free" CW9 - just replaced the bulky plastic baseplate on the magazine with the flat steel one from Kahr to make it fit more "flush":

    Well, I've had an FN FNX in 45 on lay away for awhile and I just can't seem to convince myself that I really want it. What holds me back is that while the whole package is nice enough, the polymer in the magwell seems a little too flexible to me. I finally decided what the heck it will either work for me or not. So, I'm at the shop to pick it up and a bud there suggests I look at a beat up TRP they have. It has some wear marks on the slide and the rear sight has a few dents in it, but it seems sound mechanically. I shoot a few rounds through it and find nothing to complain about in that regards. Now that FN is used, but in great shape with 3 mags for $499. I'll probably not find that deal again for one, but I'm thinking I've never seen a TRP at $599...not too hard a choice for me even if the TRP might qualify as a project gun. Later, I hit it with some cold blue to see if is carbon or stainless steel under the paint and find it's carbon. I went ahead and wiped it down completely with the cold blue and now I'm thinking I'll might just leave it as is....well, I do want to replace the sights at some point, so who knows what might happen when the old ones are off

    BTW Bawanna, I was thinking of you while I was at the shop:

    Regards,
    Greg

    The price on that Springfield 1911 is quite amazing. Nice find.
