    I will admit to wishing I could get hold of a Buck Mark receiver and start my deburring and detailing before it was grit blasted and anodized. Seems like having the "rail" surfaces not grit blasted...

    You could pretty much blow Saturday out of the water with the reading.

    I have been told by Kebco that the LPA rear sights are all the same. The historic difference between the rear sight profile on Sport and Gendarmerie models no longer exists.
