I don't have Hobbs's gunsmithing skills but have have managed to do the following to my FN HP.

Removed the mag disconnect.
Replaced the trigger return spring with an x-power Wolff replacement.
Replaced the recoil spring with a 18.5# Wolff spring.
Bobbed the factory hammer.
And I also replaced the grips

That should do it for now. At some point I will send it to somebody who knows what they are doing for a real trigger job, replace the safety and some nice sights. if I win the lottery I'll send it out for some full on custom work like checkering, flattened and serrated slide, tighten up the slide etc..

Also in the middle of a High Power project. Going all out on it. I have navidrex Micarta Grips fitted, I've bobbed and shaved the hammer, Tritium 1911(yup) Novaks are on order. I also have a Cylinder and Slide safety fitted to a nice "click" up and down and I ditched the factory sear for a tool steel Cylinder and Slide unit. Everything has been either blasted and cleaned and is awaiting the sights and a full Dura Coat on top of a fresh park.

Damned if I can find leather for it. Gonna have to order some from Galco.

Hi hobbs.

Nice stiple job! How did you make nice straight lines around your serial number?

Are you going to bevel the mag well?
