It looks really good BUT I wish you guys would clean up the area I have circled below.  That is the one thing that always digs into my thumb when I'm shooting.

All parts are hit with 400gr prior to media blast & Cerakote , but I agree some parts can get sharp.

Since you didn't list the BT as a mod you did, how come you didn't suggest to the customer to have another one blended to the frame?

Nice looking gun

I am not a fan of the "COLT M1991A1™" Billboard on the slide , I have seen shops that can remove that and re-stamp something else on it. but that's pure cosmetic personal preference

Not sure why he didnt want it. He sent it in with the firearm. Not sure if he had a budget to work with or not. If I have had carte blanche then it would have had a S&A grip safety , Kart MN barrel,flushed & recessed slide stop, blended magwell & ball cuts.

Under cut looks clean. Billboard dates the gun. Not offensive to my eye.
Its beautiful.

Looks great.  I'm not a fan of the aesthetics of the flat trigger.  But, hey, everyone is entitled to their preferences.

I do like the big gold dot front sight and the big U notch in the rear.
