I've been working on this for a while, and it is still a work in progress. Here is the parts list.

Caspian
1. Slide - S/S 10mm Commander with novak lowmount rear and dovetail front, reverse plug cut, recon radius, and internal extractor
2. Frame - S/S 10mm Officer recon with Nowlin ramp cut, integral plunger tube, and 0.250 beavertail cut
3. Grip safety - S/S 0.250
4. Commader full length 2 pc S/S guide rod
5. S/S ejector

Ed Brown
1. Hammer - hardcore
2. Sear - perfection
3. Disconnect - match
4. Hammer strut
5. Officer rebuild set (includes mainspring)
6. Tactical ambi safety S/S
8. Ext. Mag catch S/S
9. S/S firing pin
10. 10mm extractor
11. Slidestop - hardcore

Cylinder and Slide
Solid Al trigger

Wolff
1. Recoil springs (21#) and firing pin spring
2. Sear spring

Smith and Alexander
Slimline S/S magwell/MSH

Wilson
Links and link pin

Bar-sto
S/S Commander 10mm bull barrel with Nowlin ramp

Cobra/Tripp
1. 8 rd mag
2. 9 rd mag

Davidson knives
Horned lizard grips

Novak
Novak low mount tritium 3 dot night sights

EGW
OS FPS

Navidrex
Thin grip screws/bushings

I've had two problem that I am working on, and I plan to have it ionbonded eventually.
1. the ambi-safety keeps backing out, which means I may eventually get a king's
2. the mags had to be altered majorly. The feed lips where sending the cartridges into the ramp. Basically, I filed a taper on them and they work ok right now. Metalform is the only other company making mags for 10mm officer, and I may have to try them.

So this is the only picture I have right now. The slide is serrated on the top and rear 40 LPI, and the grip is checkered 20 LPI all by hand.

Thanks everyone.

Crabbybum, the grips are extremely grippy in addition to looking awesome. In combination with the checkering, the gun doesn't slide at all.

jba3, I'm not a big fan of the melted look, though I understand the functionality. I don't, however, think it is completely necessary. I radiused all sharp corners very slightly with a rubber sanding block. I also took a lot off the ambi-safety thickness on the right side (a little on the left as well) and contoured the magwell heavily.

Iggy, reply sent.

Later,
Nathan

Kudos - that is a sweet machine. May I inquire your total investment so far? Thinking of doing something similar in full size.

I didn't keep completely accurate records but somewhere between 1200 and 1500 not including tools. Must builds can be kept around 1200, but recon rails and stainless everything add a bit to the price.
