    are you using the Ed Brown jig to cut or just free hand?

    How long did it take you from the time the piece arrived till you had it completely finished?

    Now it will look like mine. It really helps with "imprinting" and snags.

    I really like that Smith, Dan. Silly question, what is that you have it propped up on?

    I did it in about 90 minutes
    That is a fine smith and wesson! I love those grips
    looks like a cleaning brush in a tube,

    Changed the grip medallions and got my new Mk4 Series70 slide in today!!
    the Colt slide fits better than the Brazilian military slide did and I love the MMC sights!
