SIS Custom Born 2/19/2008

Well boys and girls I picked it up this afternoon. The slide and frame are perfect no marks or wear. I only found two very small signs of wear on the sharp outside edge of both safeties. Not sure what caused it but it don't bother me, would be a easy fix if I decided to do anything about it. Pistol has been fired some but I don't think a lot. It does not appear to be dirty but needs some lube. I am indifferent to the mag well previous owner added, I will probably leave it on there. I am happy I increased my bid during the Gunbroker bidding war.
Range report to follow asap.
Not sure if wear on safety is visible.
Pics are straight in my file but turn side ways when I upload on here.

It look real good Arland, those wear marks on the two thumb safeties and the grip safety are nothing to worry about it's a keeper.

I hate it and it's also got wear on the mag release, I think it was abused ! Kidding you. That is a beautiful shooter in fantastic shape, you've got a beauty and a favorite of mine. I'll bet it shoots super

SCORE!!! Really nice, always thought the grips on the SIS guns were some of the best looking grips ever put on a 1911.
