The slide has been equipped with a machined retro rear sight and a front sight with 14k gold bead. Addition upgrades include an ultra high cut trigger guard, matching vertical serrations on both the front strap and mainspring housing.

The feedramp has been machined to proper dimensions then polished while the barrel is throated, chamber reamed, tuned and polished. A Nighthawk Custom 17 lb recoil spring, 19 lb mainspring is added along with an extra power firing pin spring to ensure reliable firing.
