I think those grips are correct for a 1950’s Augusta rebuild. Mine has the same type.Installing a blade front sight will require some sort of jig to support the slide and sight in order to be staked in place.
A correct long 1911 trigger can be found on eBay, may not be parkerized but you might find a parkerized one.
Correct grips can be pricey, but the Herrett's double diamond are suitable imo, considering this 1911 is a rebuild.
FWIW: As an armorer in the Marines I found a 1911 rebuild like this one and that was my sidearm.
I love those brown Audleys, with or without the flap, but with that sewn on "strap" across the front. They really just scream "functional", don't they? Thanks for the link to your previous posting about them.
DF, what would you guess is the finish on the gun I posted above? I don’t think it is original (maybe it is?), and it doesn’t looked parked. Thanks.The early rebuilds that everyone saw in the arms cage or carried were a product of the military's 'Clean and Repair Program' that started in 1947 - those often show original finish, but new barrels and grips and a mark of the facility as well as Inspector (RIA - FK).
That Program refurbished all of the war-wearies and battle-damaged, and the work was pretty impeccable (largely because of the 'talent' still working at rhe Arsenals and Depots.
These are the DCM weapons, and the ones sold by the NRA.
The late rebuilds have the weird grey finish, and are marked to both rebuild facility as well as dates of rebuild (A.N.A.D. 7-75) - those seem to be late '70's and mid-'80's.
These are the CMP weapons.
I bought the C&S grips for my WWI repro. The mags are from Turnbull.Just found these:
CS2320M - C&S 1911 Walnut Grips - Cylinder & Slide - Handguns parts and accessories (cylinder-slide.com)
Out of stock on the front sight.
But Brownell's has some:
