    I figured some of you would like to see some build pics. They are all on our Facebook page but i realize not everyone rolls that way. 2012-02-08 15.49.46.jpg
    It's a Caspian frame that we're building into a 5 in. limited style gun in 40S&W.

    Looks good! :thumb: I like the profiling on the thumb safety.

    What would you say is the biggest challenge of building a gun like this in .40 S&W?

    Normally getting them to feed is the trick with a forty. But I have to say the this gun is going to use long loaded ammo and 10mm mags and so far in testing it has proven very smooth.

    Here's the finished project for now we'll be refinishing it in the future after some engraving on the slide is performed. We needed to get in Eric's hands for some upcoming competitions.[​IMG][/IMG]frame
