I might have put these first couple on a post the other day but I thought I'd chronicle the whole thing here.

First item is a new beaver tail. Here's the rough fitting.





Today I started the dehorn. Thought I would show the series of steps going around the trigger guard.

First is file work. Initial cut on the lines as well as removing those machining stamps.



Next is the sandpaper work.



Finally, a little bead blast to check my work. Got a few file marks I'll have to go over again.

Is that a Gov't or Commander model WC? Aluminum, carbon steel, or stainless frame? What finish will you go with when it's all said and done?

The gov't model WC comes with that undercut from the factory.

Get the flats polished a bit and go for blue!
