Even though it is a first year production gun I figured it is MY GUN and I can do what I want with it. So these are the things I have done to her;

S&W Combats
Narrow smooth trigger
Gold bead inserted into stock front sight
Widened rear sight notch
No worries about getting booted, it suits you

I have posted a few of the modified 58's that I own. I only modified 1 so far, the others were done by other folks. My favorite is a 3" that was made as a tribute to Doc44's 29-58
