    Just one pic.

    Remsport frame and slide. A mix of EGW, Wilson, Caspian and S&A with Graphite black Cerakote. A couple Ed Brown parts in there for good measure.

    Here she is with Nighthawk golf ball grips. I need to perfect my thumb relief technique.

    Looks great.......a bit of sanding with a round dowel, or a AA battery & the relief will be perfect!

    Very innovative, I like it!

    Thank you. The texture of the golf balls made it difficult to really see where I was cutting. The pistol came out nice. I wish the owner of it chose less agressive grips. The grips in the first pic are mine.

    beautiful gun!

    granite, heres a set of vz gunners that i did.... its damn near impossible to get all of the lines straight and symetrical, because of the way the golf balls are laid out. i started out roughing it in with a slight bevel from the dremel, and then put my paper on a file, and started sanding till i got the profile i wanted, and then hand sanded out the final smoothing and blending with 2000 grit. it came out really nice.

    i wont post the pic, because i don't want to crap in your thread, but if you go and look in the vz section, there is a thread where we went over this and techniques to get the desired affect. also, there are lots of pictures! again, gorgeous gun!

    Looks good to me! I like your work on the blending of the thumb safety's rear edge with the frame, and the grip safety's fit. :thumb: Thanks for sharing.

    Got some range time. This is about all I can do. I'm not the best shot out there. Even with ASYM. LOL

    The gun and ammo out shoot me by a long shot. I wonder how someone else with more skill than me would have done?
