    This started as plain Jane stainless Colt, I added the ball, high power and front cocking serrations for the owner as well as new front and rear sight.
    10-8's in the rear and an XS Big Dot up front. The GS is an EB without the speed bump and the TS is a EB wide. I Nitre blued the pins and hammer to set them off from the stainless. The grips are VZ's. The front strap is hi cut and checkered 20lpi for a good firm hold out of the holster.

    That is definitely a beautiful gun sir! I have a few questions though about choices you made....
    Why no speed hump? I find it extremely hard to disengage the GS when resting thumb on the TS w/o it.
    No magwell? Some permanent like a heine or chen? Or replaceable like a techwell
    And I understand the XS is great for close engagement because it is quick, but you dont find it hard taking headshots and precise "no shoot" shots at far distances?

    rsxr22, I'm sure those are all good things. The gun was built to the specs of a client. He's winning so I guess he's happy. I'm a bullseye shooter so I am a little dependent on my clients for the action shooting details in a build.

    And here I thought the point of the HP cuts was to get rid of the fcs.. looks good tho, real clean I like it.

    Very nice.
    Yes! being a pistolsmith, one has to build the guns to the customers specifications. Remember back when I worked for WC. One time we had to inform an older gentleman, that is was a bad idea, to "upgrade" his near mint condition WW-1 Colt 1911 with new Nite-Sights and a BT.
    Fortunately he took our good advice.

    I completely understand! Being a WC dealer, i have had to order some guns with specs that were absurd, but what the customer wanted. I asked the guy if he was sure when i was going over the order with him, my rep asked me if i had gotten the order right, and i got a call from another employee before they started the work to make sure it was right LOL. But hey, as long as the customer is happy. right?

    Looks pretty sharp. One doesn't often see both front cocking serrations and Hi-Power cuts.
