Thanks 'switchback'. Sounds like the design of the CZ Shadow 2 re: the full length dustcover.
Getting close. Next step he is going to satin blast entire pistol and then high polish flats before blueing.
Looking great !!!
Thanks for taking us along for the ride.
Looking forward to seeing it continue.
Thx bud. I requested pics, but told Luke if it’s too much of a pita not to worry about it. Gotta say, I love getting a message from him.
I went out on a limb for this one, doing something totally different for me and Luke. I like what I’m seeing so far.
This is going to be an amazing gun. You can just see that it’s going to be Something special. Congrats very cool.
Sure. This is a mono frame. Full length dust cover. The end of the frame extends all the way to the end of the slide.
This is a traditional style frame. The frame does not extend all the way to the end of the slide.
@Mtek, I believe your build will look beautiful. More so than Les's. Sorry Les.
Luke said he’s mixing up some bluing salts. May be in my hands soon!
Can't wait to see the finished product.
Thx bud, me too.
More pics today...
Just blued! Now it goes in to oil quench for a few days.
That squared trigger guard is going to look fantastic with the mono frame. Great choice I believe.
Luke went to 600 grit, he just sent me these and said it’s closer to a mirror than brushed.
Luke installed the medallions into a set of @Gripwright furniture today too. Getting close fellas.
I have to ask. How does Luke get his medallions to set so flush to a contoured surface.
He does a much better job than some others. Are his medallions slightly radiused?
I don’t know, but that is very observant. I’ll ask him, he may not respond for a day or two.
@TheCollector Words from the man himself on medallions:
“No my coins are just flat 1/2". I cut them deep and build up glue that holds them at the right level.”
He sent another pic, I’m getting excited.
