Beautiful build Mr Rogers. Do you happen to have a muzzle picture?

Also, What finish and base frame/slide were used?

I know the lightening cuts on the slide are part of your signature style but have you noticed any other benefits besides the aesthetic?

I really prefer the size/look of the Dawson rail but have heard some reports (although no substantiated) of problems with frames cracking due to installation. Do you have an opinion on this? Have heard of others (like Steve Morrison) unitizing the Dawson rail to the frame. Do you think this would be a necessary step to maintain frame integrity?

What is the purpose of the small indentation below the bottom rear left side lightening cut?

Thanks. As always, your work is outstanding

Who makes the rail ? I like the looks of that better than full rail models.

Is there any chance of getting one of those rear sights made for me minus the Tritium inserts/any type of dots?

Overall it is gorgeous, but I just can't get into those "slide troughs"...

From the looks it appears to be a Dawson Rail.

The troughs are there so that you can easily pull the pistol out of the body, like blood grooves on a sword

That pistol is pure, unadulterated win. I can only dream that I could afford one.

I wish I could afford a pistol like that, but with a 10-8 rear sight and flat trigger as the only changes...that's sexy.
Link Posted: 8/18/2009 12:43:55 PM EST
The horizontal lightening cuts are taking their time growing on me. Everything else is pure win!

Gorgeous pistol.

Thanks for sharing.

Meh, I wouldn't take it if you GAVE it to me!!!
Go ahead, offer to GIVE it to me, and see if I take it.
I won't wait long for the offer, two, maybe three years tops, but that's it!





Ok, I would take it.............still waiting on the offer though.

Is it just me or is the slide stop notch NOT milled all the way through the slide?

And then that little cutout just to the rear would be for disassembly?

+1. I'd be happy to host any of those photos on my web account. I'll even create a directory for just his work.

Has the silver paint been removed from the Surefire light, or where they painted over?

Commissioned piece or one where the customer said "do what you want"?

Beautiful work! A little "busy" for me with the side cuts, but beautifully done nonetheless.

Chuck whats the machined dimple used for above the takedown groove on the slide?
Link Posted: 8/21/2009 5:54:25 AM EST
I'm guessing it is to reference or locate the takedown notch since it is a little harder to find with the beveled slide bottom.

I would like to add, fantastic work Mr. Rogers, as always.

Speaking of that, have you (or whomever owns it) done any actual testing to see if the sand cuts really do what they're supposed to or are they just theory?

Somewhere on the internet is a test of this guys sand cut setup. I couldnt find it and dont know how similar the two setups are but if your Google skills are better than mine you might find out more.
