Default Novak's Full House 645

I have read about this 645 pistol, customized by Novak's 45 Shop in Parkersburg WV, but I've never seen the details of the package. Nor have I ever seen a photo of a Novak's full House 645.

As I understand it, Novaks improved the trigger in both DA and SA. They also fitted a match grade barrel. Anyone know what else the "Full House" package entailed? Is this package still available?

Anyone own one of these or have some pics? Regards 18DAI

I bought the second 645 that showed up in the Cincinnati area in January 1986. Shortly thereafter, I send it off to Wayne Novak for some custom work. He put in a Patridge front sight, Novak rear sight, polished the sides of the slide, slicked up the trigger, added a safety lever on the right side (I'm left handed), installed a trigger stop and added checkered wood grips. Later, I had him convert the gun to what was later called a Model 745 (single action semi-auto). Still later, I removed the single action parts and restored it to the factory SA/DA functioning. Still have the gun, but haven't shot it for quite some time.
I don't know how this work relates to the above stated "Full House" package, but thought you might find it interesting.
