I've been using this pistol to play gunsmith, usually buying a part as I get the spare cash. After my A/C went out I've had to count pennies for parts. So far I modded the mags to hold 15 rounds. Changed the pistol from series 80 to a series 70 configuration. Installed an adjustable trigger and replaced the thumb safety. I put on a grip mounted scope/red dot mount that I picked up on Ebay for less than $10. I had to modify the grip panel on the right side to compensate for the grip mount. It still needs to be sanded and refinished. Since I torn down the frame, I refinished it with a black semi gloss engine block ceramic paint. I'll go to the range this weekend to test out the setup as is, but there are other things to be done. I plan on replacing the barrel and grip safety, and the grip scope mount needs to have a couple of holes drilled in it for the barrel takedown pin and screw.
