    I've posted my pistol before, But I keep working on it and have several hours in it at this point. I removed the billboards not because I did not like them but do to the slide was not straight down the side (Little high low rolling look) on each side. This was no big deal but when I would admire the gun it would bother me then. I took a stone and stoned the sides flat and then polished them. I have put Rosco grips on it (nothing wrong with the Rosco just wasn't what I was looking for) I finally found exactly what I was looking for in the grips that are on it now. These grips were made by Esmeralda, out of Ivorywood.
    So far this gun has a short Wilson trigger put on it, skeletonized hammer on it,SS magwell, Fusion Thick Bushing and end cap, Fusion SS allen head screws.

    I really, really Love this gun. It shoots without a burp. Very dependable and very comfortable.

    I have spent an extreme amount of time sanding stoning and finishing this gun out. I don't know how everyone else will feel about it, but I am extremely happy with the way it turned out. I believe it will even keep up with the high priced 1911.
