I just wanted you to know that I really appreciate what you are doing here for us. I have been looking for photos on how to do everything you are taking on. Cannot wait to see how the trigger job turns out. I have an XSE I'm wanting a smoother trigger on. I really would have liked to have seen you take on a hand checker job on the front strap though ;-)

ScottsGT....Thanks for the feedback. I plan to do the hand checkering in about a week. i still haven't ordered the jig I need but I already have the file. It is on the list of things to do so keep watching, it's coming up soon. Originally I wanted 30 lpi checkering....but I have 20lpi on the grip safety and on the MSH so I think I'll keep it all the same and do 20lpi on the frontstrap.

Take care everyone....

Hey buddy.
Don't worry about the 20lpi for a shooter,it's nice.It sucks if you're going to use it all day long,but otherwise I like it.Remember my post about the SA nightmare?I forgot to include that it was a blessing in disguise for the intendid purpose.Progress is grea ton your project,I actually had time to go through most of your site last night(that sucked,you could get in here but I couldn't).Give me till next week on my trigger post.Between it and the recent 90degree post here,along with what you gathered so far,she'll be sweet.I'm not trying to blow my own horn because the big boys can shoot that down.I'm just conjesting what I learned with the tidbits you get from everyone else(which is usually redundant) into one spot.
