Had Chris at Metaloy install a new Wilson MSH and Speed Chute on a gun he'd hardchromed awhile back. I had forgotten that the Kimber MSH was plastic when I had originally sent it in, so I got a real one :rofl: put on along with the magwell that this gun just needed. Never got around to posting pics of it though. Chris does some great work.

I don't like you very much Joe.:tongueout: It looks good.

Can you tell the difference between the plastic and metal MSH?

glock 2740,

Could you post a couple of pics from the bottom. I'm wanting to see what it looks like with and without a mag(47D if you got one).


It looks GOOD by the way!

Thanks!


Do you have one looking into the magwell? I'm just wondering how wide the magwell is. I just bought a TLE II and this is on my list. Just haven't decided if I want to go with the Wilson or the S&A one?


By the way, I live in NW AR and I think we need to go shoot that thing!

Ethically I can't compliment a Kimber. However, nice HC MSH and MW:rofl::tongueout::supergrin:

since you're taking photo requests, how about the bottom of the gun with a donut or ballon knot? :animlol:

Couldn't get enough contrast from your other chair that you sent off to Metaloy?

Here's a before picture I found of it, after I had gotten it back from Hallston Custom for John's Bullseye Package. Now you see why I had it hardchromed? :rofl:

Wow that is sharp!

I have been thinking about HC'ing my 1911 frame and I think I just might do it now.

You can't go wrong by using Metaloy. Chris is the best in the business. :thumbsup:
