Well, FedEx came by about 9:55 this morning and delivered my EMP back to me.
It was only gone 2 weeks...
I'm pretty happy with the work done.
Looks good with the G-10 grips..
Here are a few quick garage pics...

Started off like this..



Nickel Teflon entire pistol
Round the grip butt
Serrate the front strap
Under cut front strap
Cut barrel flush and recrown
Deburr the hammer
White outlined trijicon front sight
10-8 rear sight

Whoa! That barrel looks insane! What does 10-8 rear sight mean? Is that lines that are milled into it? Looks ******** phenomenal! SA Customs does excellent work.

Thanks guys...

The 10-8 sight is a blank sight with a u shaped nothc instead of a square notch.
I'm hoping it makes aquistion quicker than a square notch.
I guess we will see.

WOW, that is the nicest EMP I have ever seen. I did not know SA Custom Shop would do the barrel crown, not on their 1911 Custom PDF price list file .... So did you just come up with those items and ask?

That is a keeper for sure. Congrats

JoeOU is going to be jealous.

First off thank you all for your kind words..

I wanted a more/less a custom gun built to my wants/needs and SA helped me do that.
Turnaround time - they told me 10 weeks, two weeks later they called me wanting payment info so they could ship it back.
A lot of their turnaround time is checkering front straps, or Ionbond.
They do checkering in batches and they are at the mercy of the Ionbond guys for that finish.

I don't care for checkering and didn't really have a problem with the plain frontstrap.
But after what I read about the nickel-teflon being slick, I opted for the front strap serrations and I like them.
The nickel-teflon isn't slick, it has a soft feel to it.
It doesn't slip around in my hand..;)

They did test fire the pistol and clean up was easy with a Q-tip.

My Sig line is indeed from FTARH.
Alright Hamilton...

I did a lot of research on 1911forums.com before sending it in.
They have their own EMP thread..

Talk about your EMP here! - 1911Forum

There are many things that the SACS will do that isn't on their price sheet.
I inquired about scalloping the front strap instead of serrating it.
Sure they will do it, but it costs $120 more than the serrations.
I told them the serrations were fine..;)
The barrel crown flush cut and recrown isn't on the price list either, but they did it for me.
Also the white outlined front Trijicon isn't on the list and the sales rep told me they didn't do that.
But the SACS gunsmith called me the day they received the gun to go over what I wanted done.
I asked about the front sight (I hated the sliver ringed outline) and he told me if he didn't have one, he would make me one.
I think he did make one because there are no markings or anything on the front sight.
I can also see it better now than before.
Also the 10-8 rear sight, they told me if they didn't have one, they would order one.
I was going to put one on myself, but why not have them do it since they have the pistol..
