Just got an email from Dave, the Operator is done and will ship out Monday.

Here are some pics of the work. It looks amazing, I can't wait to get it in my hands.

Why did you do the scale serations on it?

Looks good.

I'm surprised it was such a quick turnaround for the work, makes me wish I would have known about him sooner. I could have avoided some of my problems.

Looks great. Dave was very easy to work when I used him. His prices were very resonable and the turnaround time was quick.

Is there a crown on that barrel? Look's like it was just chopped flush to the slide...

Yeah, there was a miscommunication about that. He is going to try and work on it a bit for me.

dnuggett
08-06-2011, 16:30
Looks great! He couldn't quite match the aluminum frame up to the slide though I guess?

We will see what Springfield can do with the Armory Kote. Mine goes out this week.

TKR Reptiles

It won't match up exactly with the frame being aluminum. It has the same coating and color on both.

Quack

probably the different texture of the anodized frame vs. the smooth slide.

Yep. It gets it closer, but not quite there.

TKR Reptiles
08-06-2011, 16:36
Also with the flash it could kind of drown out the gloss look. I will see if it is closer in person.

Woulda turned out even better, IF it would've had a "flush crowned" barrel. :tongueout: Trent, I just had to rub it in. :rofl:Maybe something like this...:)

Dave emailed me earlier and said he went ahead and put and 11 degree crown on the end of the barrel. So it should look just like that I am hoping. Waiting on a new pic to see.

It's looks great, and I like the flat trigger also. They're slowly growing on me.

got this from Trent. He says it shoots well and he loves the flat trigger :supergrin:

this was shot at 15 yards and the flyer was the 1st round. He was shooting the Glock before this and wasn't used to the lighter trigger pull.

That is one bad piece! Glad it shoots as good as it looks.

Tell him to send a pic of the barrel with the crown on it!

Tell Trent I may be keeping the flat trigger in the EMP as well.
Didn't get to the range today,......spent some time tweaking the trigger on my SPR A1a.

Any details on what I asked last night?
