I had many ask me if I did a build thread on the Emp4 and they just missed it, but as I told them I was too busy working on it to keep up with pics and details lol. Anyway I decided the next one I will post progress and build reports, but I also want to take the time and ask for advice on a couple of the details. 2016 DAN WESSON FULL SIZE VALOR IN SS FINISH: 1.) Slightly rounded MS housing or one piece MS housing? "good one piece like NHC, or EB" 2.) Flat 10-8 trigger, okay with solid existing trigger, short solid, long, med etc.. or a 3 hole speed or lightweight trigger? 3.) Mongrammed fixed DW logo bushing and recoil cap? 4.) Bevel bottom rails of slide yes or no? And why or why not? 5.) What angle on the crowned barrel? And why? Okay I thought it would be fun to get some input and ideas, and feel free to suggest anything else you would like, I won't promise I will or won't follow suggestions based on numbers, but will strongly consider it. As these are some of the details that I haven't set in stone in my thinking yet lol...Thanks for participating.. Here are several pics to show the pistol in it's original factory condition: So there will be something to go back and reference to for before and after photos.. I won't be able to start this for a few weeks as I just did two pistols back to back and I am an absolute slob, I wouldn't be able to find 1/2 of my stuff at them moment no matter how hard I tried. I've got to get my mower serviced, " by urs truly" Bearings, belts, tires, oil change, flush hydraulics and re-fill and sharpen 3 sets of blades. Clean up this horrible mess in my garage/office/workshop/bedroom lmbo.. And I have a couple buddies who need a hand this coming week. Anyhow, pics below: This pistol has seen just under `100 rounds so virtually brand new. This is the same gun that was bead blasted back several months ago, there is a thread on that ordeal, I am the second owner, first owner fired about 75 rounds, count looked very legit when I took possession of the pistol, and I have shot a total of two mags through it.
