Anybody have any inspiration (read "pictures") for a custom gun?  Anything really unique to show off?  Got a home-built one?  I want to see it!

I'm in too....

I love sending off my guns for custom work... just makes them my own.

Pics will follow when I get an oppurtunity.

We should have a tacked up thread on anything cool custom.

Kind of.
This  gun started out as a Beretta PX4  in 40 S&W. I sent it to David Olhasso for and action job and a conversion to "G" model (decock  only) tthen I sent it to Robar to Stipple the grip and NP3 the slide and internals along with XS big dot sights. This is one of my favorite guns to shoot, it shoots great and Dave Olhasso did an amazing job. Absolutely the best DA/SA trigger I have ever shot.



This is a Ruger Super Blackhawk that I shot the daylights out of. I sent it to Mag-na-port for the Predator package but to cut the barrel to 4 inches and fit up a birdshead grip from Brownells. Great trigger and it loves 240 grain lead bullets.




This is my carry gun. Springer LW champion Operator that I sent back to the SA Custom Shop for a trigger job, bobtail. and checkering the frontstrap at 30 lpi. They also recrowned the barrel and refinished the frame. Shoots like nobody's business.

Outstanding firearms D-Ric902! I don't have anything super special, but this Colt 1911 was customized by a gunsmith named Fisher sometime in the 1970's (I think).

This Caspian was built from the ground up in 2002 as an IDPA Enhanced Service Pistol gun.   Bar-sto 9mm barrel, Caspian titanium frame.   I've shot matches, been through high round count classes, and it just keeps on ticking.  I bought it used in 2008.



This is what it currently looks like.



This was my first full build, done on an 80% KT Ordnance frame.  I think I did this one back in 2002.

What grip safety is that?

Here's a Karl Sokol built Colt that I swear would feed .45 caliber rocks off the ground. Just plain reliable.

Believe that's a Brown high ride safety.

I wanted to build an "adventurer's gun", something like an Indiana Jones-type character might have carried during some third world trekking. Started with a beat up S&W Model 1917 that already the barrel chopped. You can't tell from the pic, but the factory fixed rear sight channel has been hogged out slightly to give a sight picture similar to the XS sights I like on my carry guns. Otherwise, everything else is pretty much "period" (lanyard loop, grip adapter, faux ivory grips.) Only modern stuff is Wolff springs.


Also, my S&W Model 19-based Davis "Smolt."

I like the look of the S&W 1917......

My work guns are mostly Glocks but I love cool revolvers.

I went a similar move with my .45 PX4...

I used CCR with their cera-plate. Sent the entire gun in, being I want the metal frame parts done, as well. I put on the Stealth slide release and Bedair guide rod. They will put on the Trijicons and Stealth decocker.

I just bought a Ruger LCP, and I might go a similar route with the plating. I'm unsure on whatever the second pistol will be. If a polymer frame, I will have it plated as well (I'm favoring the Glock, due to the polymer magazines). If I get a metal framed pistol, I will try for a stainless pistol.

Funny you should post that. When I first read the title, a BHP worked over with HP's SRT package. was exactly what came to mind. I'd love to be able to send them mine some day!

I remember that Don Fisher used to run ads in "American Handgunner" during the 1980s.  He also wrote some articles for the DBI/Krause "Handguns" annuals back in the late 1990s.
