    Stunning! wonder if those "lightening cuts" in the slide helps with the heat issues. Whatever deal you made on that, I think you certainly came out on the better end. I want one now, JUST LIKE THAT! LOL

    Is that a tan/fde on the lower half, hard to tell on my end? First pic looks titanium-ish

    Will have little to ne effect on the heat build up. The heat is fron the gas port
    located just above the trigger opening. I guess it MAY help it cool a bit faster.

    Very smart question. As it turns out, the guy I got this from said that it does dissipate the heat faster than when it was stock. Said that it took about 40% more rounds through it to make it too hot to shoot.

    It needed a lighter recoil spring, too, since it had metal taken off of the sides of the slide where the old proof marks were and the lightning cuts.

    The first pic does look a little different than the rest. I think the custom shop that did the work took that one. It looks grey-ish to me.

    That looks quite nice. Very clean for what was done to it. Thanks for sharing. :thumb:

    Seriously, Deadite, if you ever decide to sell this, please give me a stab at it! Also, any idea what they charged for that work?

    Thanks, guys!

    I believe it was in the $400-$500 range for the work.
