ACCURACY

A precision fit match grade barrel and match grade bushing will give the greatest accuracy improvement in a pistol. I use methods of fitting I learned from Master Pistolsmiths’ Jack Weigand and Jim Stroh using precision measuring instruments in conjunction with machine work and final hand fitting.

SAFETIES

Beavertail grip safeties are precision fitted and blended into the frame giving a very comfortable grip that fits well in the hand. Springfield Armory frames (and some Caspian frames) require a .220 radius (Smith & Alexander or Wilson Combat) grip safety for best fit due to the Springfield tang configuration.
