    Getting this ready before the SHOT show.Caspian race ready slide and frame cut for Novak style front and rear sights. Ed Brown hand fit grip safety. Novak ringed hammer and Berryhill sear. The trigger is a long Harrison Design. The Storm Lake barrel is set with an EGW thick bushing and plug. The smaller parts and pins are high polished and nitre blued to add contrast to the brushed finish hard chrome. The grips are carbon fiber by VZ grips. Slide to frame was machine fit and hand lapped for a tight lock up.

    Looks nice! I think the hammer was a nice choice.

    I really like the angled ball cuts on the front of the slide. It looks pretty good to me. :thumb:

    Sorry but I don't see the Nitre blued pins, they look black to me, not eye popping like the ones on Yost or others guns. And the boarder cuts look like they stop short of the slide edges...or am I just missing something? Was this done for a reason?
