Im thinking of building on a $115 Essex frame using a $50 Brazilian slide from sarcoinc.com (maybe using a kit) The extras will be a Nowlin trigger group and commander hammer-(from Reddog) @$60 An EFK buffer system @ $50. And an extended extractor and tougher firing pin. Before it gets assembled the Frame/slide and thumb safety/slide-stop will be sent to Jack for Nickel plating--the rosewood grips will look great next to it. Gunnut- I would just do both the frame and slide, knowing Jack he wouldnt charge much more to do the whole thing at once. Might think about doing your safety/stop while your at it too. Jack lives just North of me so I can drive up there and save a few days-I know Ill be getting anxious by then. After plating I should still be under $500 which isnt bad considering what it is--and Ill never sell it anyway. Have you been to a range with yours yet? If so, what kind of groups are you making? These should both be outstanding guns. :mrgreen:
