It's going to be a bit of a project gun, I have the following planned:
-Round butt or bob-tail still undecided
-Sight change, 10-8 or ???
-Carry bevel, very light, just knocking off the sharp edges
-Thumb safety blend lever upon install
-Blend slide to frame at rear
-Blend GS fit
-Harrison short trigger
-Blend contours of slide stop
Will have to farm out the refinish, plan on CeraKote

Go with a round butt. Bobtail's are for Commanders IMO.

Scratch that idea. I just reminded myself why...Guess a Springfield HP is the only option.

Got a little more accomplished on the Loaded today. Worked on the trigger guard, knocked the edges
from the slide & slide stop. I also relieved the trigger guard to front strap slightly, it's very subdued.
Will work on the barrel bushing a& thumb safety tomorrow.
Small parts are practice, do not wish to screw up the Wilson Combat slide stop & safety.

Nice. Nothing classier than a nicely blended GS.

The blend on my Cbob is pretty bad, but the hand blended WC GS on my custom Carniak Delta Elite is great!

Sounds good... You should think about sending it to Rob at Alchemy for some front strap treatment .
He has been doing my checkering.

Funny, I have the same project but in Stainless. Just about done checkering the front, not something I'm itching to do again but would probably be a whole lot easier the second time! Lots of parts waiting to go in, yours is looking great, I may have to round butt mine too!

Awesome,.......a stainless model would have made finishing a bit easier.
You have some serious nards doing a checker job. No way I would attempt
that.

Post a few close up pics of your work! Once again, I applaud you for your determination!
