Here is a low res photo of my new pistol build.



I just fitted in a set of Tirjicon three dots and I'm waiting on a Hardcore extractor.

I'm really enjoying this pistol! And it feeds federal hollow points. Wee.

OK OK!

It is built from an 80 % cro-moly frame with mil surp parts kit, Korean I think. The slide came machined for the Novak rear sight so I installed trijicons front and rear. I also added and ambi safety and I'm waiting for a Hardcore extractor to fit. Everything was fitted and stoned for installation. The frame and slide were stripped and parkerized black. I made a staking tool for the detent tube.

It shoots very well, but has some minor extracion issues that i hope to solve with a better extractor and brand name magazines.

Is that one of the Sarco slides?

I have no idea. How could I tell?

There are proof marks (several) on the underside of the slide...

I don't know, never having messed with one myself. I just thought your slide resembled the one advertised by Sarco:

I don't think so. I have a Sarco slide and found out that stock Novak's will not fit without gunsmithing. The dovetail are too narrow and at the wrong angle. The rear dovetail is also not deep enough. After installing the rear sight there is approx 1/16 gap between the top of the slide and the bottom of the sight.

My kit came from the Sportsmans Guide. The Novak rear fit right up, the front needed a bit of shaping to fit, but not more than twenty minutes of work... Pretty simple really.

It sure looks like the Sarco slide though. I did clean up the grip serrations on the slide as they were a bit ragged.

ETA, it looks like the slide had a staked front sight? Hard to tell, but you said it does.. mine has a dovetail.

The Sarco slides have a dovetail front sight too.
