Just took the Novak off my Springfield and replaced it with a Heinie because I like the plain rear view of the Heinie. The Novak is too busy for me. I must admit, though, the Novak looks better on the pistol. FWIW
Those pictures of the work Jim Garthwaite? did on your Hi-Power are great! I am considering the same treatment to my '69 Hi-power. Are you satisfied with his work? Was it timely? If I may ask, how much did you have to pay for what he did?
I am very satisfied with my Garthwaite Hi Power. I had the work done about a year ago, and the turnaround was right at 2 months. Jim is easy to talk to and will let you know his current work schedule. Also, you should check his website for pricing information. www.garthwaite.com
