Sending Chuck my stainless Kimber Custom Target II in 9mm in the morning. :supergrin: List of things to be done:

golfball and high cut frontstrap
golfball MSH
round butt
flush crown barrel
flush cut slide stop
insert "white ball" into front sight
fit .38 Super Kart NM barrel and bushing and flush crown of course :cool:
bead blast to satin/matte finish

Gonna be a pretty cool gun afterwards. My first step into the .38 Super world and a cool 9mm 1911 to boot. Here's some before pics I took today with Hogue rubber palm swells. Sending it off with a set of Davidson Warthog's. Of course the after pics will be posted on arrival. :cool:

That thing was pretty cool. I'm surprised you didn't snag it or trade that dude up on the RRA.

Hey Don I have been meaning to ask if you anything about these.

Springer Omega 10mm
I have been eyeing these for a while. Interesting piece.

Blame Dave. :rofl:He's the one who's been pushing the whole .38 Super thing on me. I figured this would be cheaper than getting a .38 Super. Plus, I've always wanted to do something cool to this 9mm. :cool:

a dealer had 3 of them a few shows back.

It's a linkless design and was designed by Joe Peters of Peters-Stahl in West Germany. it uses the Peters-Stahl slide & barrel on a Springfield frame.

Never looked at it. What's it run per 50 compared to 9mm & .45?

Quack
03-14-2011, 21:48
i think it's something like $20-$25 for 50rds of FMJ.

just looked and found this:
http://www.the-armory.com/shopsite_sc/store/html/38_Super_FMJ_Aguila.html

so it's about $16/50

Oh I knew the source of your "inspiration". I have a few more in .45 I have ordered and need to get paid for before I go down that path. Plus I keep putting off a few pieces I need to add on the long gun side of my safe.
