Do you know anything about the front sight on this sacrificial lamb?


It is very high. It has two round hollow tenons which have been staked most aggressively into channels cut into the slide and it seems to rest on a small platform/base which may be seated on a flat.
Other than that It is just a front sight on a scrapped slide.


Millett. No longer produced (thankfully). Why was the slide scrapped?

So I am reading about the pitfalls of amateur DIYer's like myself and suddenly a light comes on!

Can anyone point me to a source of scrapped demilled frames? The back half intact with the front of the rails and trigger guard cut off or some other
damage which renders item a non-firearm...


Caspian often has them. I think STI does occasionally. Probably any of the manufacturers generate scrap frames/slides, but not all will sell them.

I don't think there's anything wrong with the Caspian sear, but the one you want is the tru-radius (tm) sear from Harrison Design. I'll also recommend that you get all the parts for the ignition kit from the same source. Harrison Design is good, or look at Chuck Warner at Elite Warrior Armament. He sells a very high quality ignition component kit using the same tru-radius sear design that Harrison sells.

Since you've already identified a pile of parts to be sourced from Harrison, you might see if he can provide any of the pieces you're getting from other suppliers. Certainly HD parts will be equal to if not significantly superior in quality to those from other sources.

As for extractors, I've had good experience with Wilson Combat "bullet proof" parts and I've seen numerous endorsements (maybe even on this site) for the EGW "heavy-duty" model extractor.
