Just got this new Caspian today from Mike O'Hara at O'Hara Custom Guns. I'll try to get some better pictures later.

Most of the parts are from Wilson: grip safety, thumb safety, 337 hammer, sear, pins, bullet proof extractor and slide stop; Kart barrel.
Chuck Rogers (pistolwrench) did the slide cosmetics including the bevel. Pete Single (Metal Smith) did the checkering. Finish by Tripp.






Recessed plunger tube.

Wayward is that the one he was selling on LTW or is that a custom he did to your specs. Either way it is smoking :cool:

Mike occasionally has guns for sale at a local gun store, so I've seen two or three of his guns up close. The cosmetics of his guns are some of the best I've ever seen (I've been fortunate enough to handle guns built by Heinie, Vickers, Swenson, Nastoff, Hoge, Burns, Bilby, Mulkerin, etc.).

WOW! That's a beautiful gun!

Whose MSH is that?

Did you buy it that way, or did Pete checker it, too?

So is that Tripp's hard chrome?

I love that finish. I've got a stainless commander I'm almost done with. Maybe I'll have to consider that instead of bead blasting...

there is something thats just so clean and elegant about that peice.
I love the lack of rollmarks and markings in general.
The finish is very bright yet not flashy. Would that be considered a matte finish?
The details of it are modern, yet not overdone......

really elegant peice!

It looks like hard chrome in matte to my eyes.
