Hi All,

Just wanted to share with you my latest project. This is my first attempt at bobtailing. Wasn't too bad, especially if you have the EB jig. I used a milling machine to relocate the MSH pin hole and for the rest, good old elbow grease. I also did the bobtail on a Caspian aluminum frame, but that one is still a ongoing project, so when it's done, I'll post some pic's.
I apologize for the poor quality of the pic's. It's the best I can do with my $50 camera.

is that an aluminum frame or stainless?
If it is aluminum did you refinish it or doctor up the edges?
Looks good. Thinking of doing that mod to my carry gun:D

That's a SS Kimber. I'm still working on the AL frame gun, it still needs parts, etc, since it's a from the ground up build job. I've not even decided on what caliber yet.

nice work! really like the shot from the back - shows how consistent the new profile is on the each side of the mainspring housing where the bobtail cut was made. congrats.
