    This is one of several Pinstripers I'm finishing up this fall for clients. This one happens to be a long slide .45Auto with partial tri-cut slide. The unique thing about this gun is that it was built by me for the man who makes our grip safeties and RDSM plates, as well as a few other parts we use. I'm sure he'll enjoy it, especially knowing he helped make the parts.

    The beautiful grips are a set I was lucky enough to get from Mr. Craig Spegel and I think they compliment the gun very nicely.

    I really like that! Amateur question, how did you fit (what I assume is a cone barrel)? Like to what surface(s)? I probably incorrectly, thought that it was fit to the slide yet you achieved that cool "floating barrel" look. I likey.

    The OD of the barrel cone is fit to the ID of the slide. In this case the ID of the slide measured .7005" and the cone measured .700".

    Got it. So that happened internally and then you got the bad arse floating barrel look at the end? Turned out pretty darn awesome if you ask me. I hate living in komifornia. The WMB is as close as I can get. Love it, congrats to the lucky new owner.
