    Custom 1908 380 Tulsa Find

    I know, it has been re-finished. Here is a list of the work done on this pistol. Novak sights, front and rear. Checkered front and back strap. One thing I didn't notice was the French border on the slide. There is a border between the matted top and the side of the slide. I normally don't even look at customized pistols, but I like this one. I also received a receipt for the work that was done.

    The Novak sights will certainly make a big difference in sight picture and alignment and help maximize its accuracy potential. Now all it needs is a somewhat bigger thumb safety more like a 1911 and then it would need nothing more...no rail...no laser...just good basics and it's good to go.

    I am with you.......normally like guns all original, but that one is about as perfectly done as I can imagine. It could roll off the assembly line today, and I would have one. That is one sexy old girl. Congratulations on that purchase.

    How much did you get the old girl for?

    Looks like a hell of a shooter now! The weak point on these pistols was always the sights for me and this certainly solved that! Not to mention you can't go wrong with checkering on the straps! Like a resto mod for cars! I dig it.
