    Well, it took about 6 hours but it finally worked out.

    Here's the pistol before polishing:

    And here she is after 1500 grit:

    While I had it stripped down, I worked the sear and hooks over just a hair and the trigger pull is much better (despite the Series 80 internals).

    Thanks.

    I like the wood grips. I have a pair of double-diamond Wilson grips, but they are quite dark. I like the lighter grips because they set off the metal and give it a more "classic" look. However, it makes the frontstrap look naked. I need to get the thing checkered...

    Nice job. I need to have you give my Kimber a good once over.
