So my BHP has returned from Mr Yost's shop. The base gun that was used is forged framed MKIII. The gun was in very good condition when I sent it in but it was not new and had some minor finish issues. Mr. Yost did his magic on the gun. I went with is Signature Grade I package minus the beavertail. I prefer the BHP without a beavertail. I tried to swap the pistol out at one point with a T series but the grip strap on that gun was too thin to be checkered so I stuck with the MKIII base gun and I am glad I did. This will be a better more durable long term shooter. This gun is shooting quarter sized groups with the factory barrel at 15 yards all day long if the shooter is up to the task. Mr. Yost and I talked about replacing the barrel and he recommended keeping the factory barrel and I am happy with the results. I have several custom BHPs. I have ones from Don Williams, Novak, Garthwaite, West and Bob Cogan. Each one has their own flare to them. Each one is a functional piece of art to my eyes but this Yost pistol might be the best of the bunch. The custom thumb safety is a thing of beauty. The devil is in the details of this pistol. The nitre pins, screws and accents are striking. The machining work on the hammer really cleans up the factory part. The pistol is super smooth and the reset modification that Ted does really improves the pistol. I have only had a short range session with this one but I am liking it so far.
