The day has finally come! The Anomaly came to the range with me and I ran five different kinds of ammo through it, including a couple of mags of JHP (Gold Dots and HST), in four kinds of mags. It’s got that Alchemy feeding cycle that just feels like bullets magically align with the chamber and slide in like they were dipped in butta .



Shot her side by side with the stainless sibling



While the lightweight two-tone sibling was in the holster. It did come out for a family pic.

Guess what...my ego never caught up so I'm still pretty reasonable. I am getting crabbier with each passing day though. One day, I'll be able to yell at you like Les but until that day comes, everyone is safe. :)

In addition to the all the fine pics of all the fine work Rob has done I want to add that he was excellent to deal with before, during and after the build. It was (and is) the only gun I’ve ever had customized and the last one I’d ever part with. I wish I had him do a couple more things to it before he got all rich and famous! (I probably can’t afford him anymore!)

Mark Anderson, how do you like that diamond checkering? I wonder why Rob did not use that on his new Alchemy line.
I love it. Not exactly sure what the LPI is, but it's absolutely perfect for grip and shooting. I bought the PM7 in 2007 and at that time there was nothing on the front or rear. Today it is marketed as the PM-45 and looks like DW is checkering both sides, but it doesn't look anything near the quality of the diamond checkering Rob did.

I believe that it’s called Cord checkering, after the auto maker. I have a old MSH with the same type checkering with landyard loop. My buddy has the same on his 60’s ball gun but his landyard loop is not installed.
