Wow is something of an understatement!
I can't wait to see em in person. I'm sure they are going to look fantastic on a future build. Bob is a great guy to deal with too. Very detail oriented and Gentleman to boot.. ;) Kind of like some other folks I know :)

I sent this pistol out several months ago, and the customer doesn't always get to pick them up or shoot them right away. But, I always like to check back if I don't hear anything. Was good to hear that all was well and the customer is considering another so his Sons won't have to share lol. Below is a copy of the text I This 9mm commander with new KKM barrel turned out pretty well and was a lot of fun to build. I assure you the ball cuts line up, where it appears they don't is the angle in which the photo was taken lol..

The pistol functions and shoots fantastic Steve. It went so well, and my sons loved it so much (ultimately one of them will lay claim to it!), that I am trying to figure out if I can afford to get on your list again next year. I have another 9mm Commander that I got quite a few years back to use as a base for a build.

Well it seems a number of folks are getting in some financial crunches and needing to get a little cash. So, I did this pistol about 1-1/2 years ago for a member that reached out. He hasn't got enough posts to list in the classifieds but, asked me if I could see if I could generate any interest in this 2016 Dan Wesson Specialist in 45 acp Govt. It is their older rail design which I like much better then the newer one. If anyone would like to grab something without a wait involved this is a super nice pistol. About the only thing that wasn't done was a barrel change. PM for persons contact info, and I will have you speak with him directly. Most of the work is self explanatory action package II, Reliability package II, high cut front strap, top of slide treatment, Stan Chen SI magwell. French border, ball cut cocking serrations, Brushed polished flats with blasted rounds. This is an all around nice piece. Bunker arms radial bore bushing as well. This pistol seen a lot of work. If my memory serves me right he also had the barrel flushed and crowned.

I posted this for a client a few weeks ago, this pistol seen a ton of work and the fellow is trying to off it pretty cheap. This had everything done but the sights and barrel. One piece magwell added. Top of slide, bottom bevel, refinish. Very nice example here of an Older Specialist. Hit me up in Pm and I'll put you in touch with the fellow.
