Well, they're not pretty.. But they tend to go BANG when the trigger is pulled.

Turnbull replaced the rear sight, they actually made a brand new one. Was a bit pricey but well worth it as the gun is a beauty. That said, I got a lesson in 1911 recoil springs. There seems to be a front and back to it so don't get it backwards! Hard to tell looking at it but when it won't chamber the next round, you know it's in backwards!🤣
