This Trojan Spartan 9mm had seen its fair share of action. It came to us with a shot out barrel. The owner was wanting to rejuvenate this handgun to prime condition and keep it in top working order for years to come.
First on the list was a new barrel and bushing. Then we installed new Novak front sights to improve the ease-of-target acquisition.
As the handgun was often used in competition, we carved in front grip checkering to increase grip stability.
Now the surfaces and working parts were all serviced and ready, we Cerakoted the firearm to protect against the elements and wear and tear. Magpul Flat Dark Earth was the colour of choice, fitting in with the owner’s goal of a functional and tactical look.
This is an example of a relatively simple job which will protect a firearm and keep it running for many, many more years to come, regardless if its near-new or much-loved.
