With my technical difficulties in posting pictures I'll have to keep this short and sweet. Had a late change and I'll be cutting balls on the front and we are swapping guide rod systems and running a closed plug. Test fire tomorrow morning. Some things done and parts:

Welded frame rails and refit

Welded barrel hood and lower lugs

Target Crown barrel

Undercut trigger guard and hand stippling.

Chen Maxbevel with stippling

EGW .220 GS

Harrison long trigger, TR fire control, slide stop and thumb safety

EGW extractor

Novak front and rear sights cut

Harrison U notch rear night sight

Before pics

That's going to be a nice pistol. I'm reluctant to try a similar project because of the necessary front strap treatment.

Going to hand or machine checker? Or maybe stipple? Lol
I'm afraid to tackle any! I don't have the fixturing to machine checker and may hands/fingers would give out for hand checkering. o_O

As usual, pretty sweet stuff my friend! Can't wait to see the final product. What'll the finish be?
Thanks buddy! It'll be parkerized then sprayed in armor black cerakote. Should look very handsome.

Welp. That's all she wrote. Extremely happy with how it came out. Apologies on the delay. I sometimes forget to ensure I've cross posted. It was done in December and in talking to the owner I think we were both deathly afraid of the mail service during these holidays. Lol. She landed safely at home today!

That looks great. Not overdone, but a personalized custom. I'm lovin' the stippling on the front strap and MSH and the finish. I betcha the owner is giddy. Great job!

That is one smooth custom! Awesome work. Did you do the welding or out source it? The gaps on the slide rear face are sweet!
