New Sights on my TRP!

I had a u-notch rear sight and a brass bead front sight put on. My TRP Tactical. Have not shot it with the new vision wear yet. I read a lot of reviews about the brass bead front sight all were good. Here is a picture for those of you who like pictures of guns and stuff! You may have to zoom out in order to see the picures.https://www.kimbertalk.com/forums/att...1&d=1476464733

I like the grips also with one exception the relief for easy access to the magazine release is for the thumb of the right hand if I am not mistaken. I am left Handed mostly. I would like the grips 100% if they did not have the relief. Right handed stuff is made just to keep the lefties from ruling the world!
The next two things I am doing to the Gun is to put in the Wilson Combat flat wire recoil spring kit with the spring plug flat cap. Chuck got me hooked on the kits. Then I want to put in a longer trigger in it. The trigger pull is clean and crisp about 4 lbs.but it is short for my hand the previous owner must have had smaller hands. It will give me experience taking down the 1911 so I can do trigger jobs. I have the pin punches and recently purchased an armorers block next will be the Ed Brown trigger sear jig and the proper stones for the trigger track and sear. I really think I am addicted to the 1911. I have six now and I am actively looking for #7 a Kimber Ultra!
