Empire Sniper, 90* Grip

Thanks to the folks on here who offered advice on how to make this happen. Still a little ugly, but it shoots, and worlds better than the old .45 style.

Did you have to drill any holes or was it bolt on?

Drilled the frame, lengthened the hammer slot on the body and milled out a bit of the frame to accommodate the valve retainer.

I'm digging how that lower body line lines up with the frame. All-in-all, it matches very well aesthetically. It the Empire asa slotted for a T rail?

Can't wait to mill the back of the frame to match. The original ASA is T-slotted, unfortunately. That lever is a great option.

Well that's kind of a buzzkill, I would rather have a slider than the stock trigger. It feels terrible without the autotrigger cam in it.

I wonder if the Empire asa would fit onto one of PE's or CCM's T-slotted mini drops. It'd be worth a looksee if you would rather use the Empire asa.

And I can't wait to see what you have in mind in milling the back of the frame!

Working on the antique Western/Firefly look. What do you guys think?
