Just received my Classic back from Alchemy. I wanted him to make it into a poor man's Supergrade. I can't say enough about his work. Most of you are already familiar with Rob and can truthfully state that he is a master gunsmith. I had him do the following:

Remove FCS
Hand serrate back of Slide and Extractors
Flatten and Serrate top of slide
Install Long Solid NM Trigger
Flush cut barrel and crown @ 30 degrees
Fit, tune and blend new BP Extractor Flush cut and bevel slide stop Tune pistol for total reliability
Fit EGW OVersized Firing Pin stop
Baron Blue Slide and top end parts
Refinish lower in Presentation grade bead blast
Install Battle Sight Blade on rear sight

In 2,000 posts, I have never commented on a gun twice.

But I looked at the pictures and work done again, and wow, that is a nice pistol.

Enjoy!

Very nice alchemized Classic! Beautiful and nicely optioned.
No poor man's Supergrade at all, this is a clever man's Supergrade!

I think so too! That is an amazing execution of the modifications asked for by the customer. Great pistol!

Oh so gorgeous work of art!

(Funny, I have seen posted with supreme authority on this forum that absolutely, positively, FCS cannot be removed no way, no how.)

Guess your great pictures just destroyed that myth! :)
