LW- That is a factory lookin' grip safety on the 1911, but we reshaped it and the hammer to make it more comfortable and eliminate bite.
Ned- I'll assume that was a compliment.
Coming from you it means a lot, thanks.
Matt VDW- It was set up for a righty, the safety just looks somewhat big because of the photo angle.
Yes, those are Ashley Express sights. The front is a tritium "standard" white dot which was dovetailed into the slide and blended to match the contour. The rear is an Ashley express with a white vertical bar in the center of the V notch.
