I'm having a 20 year old Les Baer Stinger worked over by Luke Volkmann to include refinishing of the slide and frame (the slide will be naked and he will remove my first and only idiot mark), flush cut and bevel of the barrel, new sights, Chen mag well, and flush and beveled slide stop. I'm tempted to add ball cuts but am uncertain. I'm not sure that I've ever seen a LB with ball cuts, so it would be a bit unusual/unique. What do you think?

I require fcs for ball cuts. I didn't use to, but now it appears like a void without them. Changing tastes I don't know. I do like the idea of hp cuts without the fcs.

On your particular 1911, I would say yes to ball cuts! It will be a nice looking 1911.

I like ball cuts. This is my Baer Boss, Joe C did the extra work on it, including the ball cuts.

That looks great what type of blueing / polishing is done on the slide...
Thanks. It's just a bright polish and hot blue, not fancy but executed extremely well.
