For sure the Yo-Bo shop is known mostly for 1911s and Browning Hi-Powers but every once and again Ted gets to do something really out of the box. This particular something
came in the form of a Sig P210. Long applauded for their “rifle like” accuracy, the P210 has almost a cult like following among many knowledgeable shooters and improving on one is something many think cannot be done.
I started hearing about this project some time ago. Ted would tell me about the Sig 210 he had in the shop and how he was gonna’ change this and that, contour here and there, trim about this and around that, and basically make a dead nuts accurate gun just a bit easier on the eyes and good deal more user friendly. Now with the project complete and fresh out of the bluing tanks there’s no question in my mind that Ted did what sought to do.
A pretty good gun to begin with, here are a few of the mods’ that Ted added to help increase the charm of the piece:
- 30lpi front strap checkering
- Beveled mag well
- Beveled and trimmed dustcover
- Re-contoured slide profile
- Hand made beavertail
- Hand made thumb safety extension
- Serrated slide stop
- Flattened and serrated slide top
- Gold line front sight
- Yo-Bo Professional Grade rear sight
