Looks very nice. You need a better pic though.

LOL Those pics hide the finish flaws till it gets final blending & blasted.

That looks amazing for something you built yourself. (How did you fit the slide to the frame?)

I know a gunsmith that will do Bo-Mar cuts for $45 and high cut 30 LPI frontstrap checkering for $125.

With that you would have a pretty well-rounded custom build.

I just hand lapped the slide & frame with some find valve grinding compound. Took a long time but it is tight. Once I get around to getting a phase converter I am goin to get my mill running. Then I'll flat top & serrate the slide as well as make new sight cuts. I think I am goin to tackle the front strap myself eventually also.... Just somethin to learn on. Not my last for sure.

Very nice looking piece. Is that an STI carbon fiber trigger I see there?

I also like the Roderus site in the background.
