Happy New Year to me...

Here's how it looked in 2004:

Here's how it spent most of 2005. Added the Hogue grips and the LD BA2 laser:

A week before Christmas I took her to The Gun Doctor, my local gunsmith. I had Kevin at TGD give the frame a nickel finish and re-blue the slide and controls. When I picked it up yesterday, I added the stainless EFK barrel, Novak's stainless solid guide rod, and TJ's stainless grip screws. I highly recommend The Gun Doctor. Great service, fast work, and good prices. www.gundr.com

Here she is with her new look for 2006:

With the Hogues back on:

With my P229R for a Yin-Yang comparison.

FYRARMS, What a transformation! The nickel finish on the frame looks really top notch. Its nice with the two-tone look. How does it function with new barrel, guide rod, etc.? Any probs?

I'd be curious how the new barrel shoots too. I have an EFK .357 SIG conversion barrel for my XD40 and it is a great shooter, but the fit is not perfect, there's a little rub somewhere. MJD

Thanks, guys!

The finish is very nice. It looks very close to the nickel finish Sig uses on their two-tones, which is the color I wanted.

Haven't had the chance to fire it yet with the new barrel and guide rod. I am a little concerned with the fit of the EFK barrel. The slide has about 1mm of "play" when in battery. I am going to call EFK and see what is up.

You definitely picked the best place to have do the work.

I love those guys. They know what they're doing.
