    thanks everyone!

    The build didn't take long, the most time consuming part for me was fitting the barrel and grip safety. Other than that, I finished within a week. The longest part was waiting for it to come back from finishing (close to 45 days).

    I've been shooting her before she left for finishing, had a couple failure to feed due to the rough feed ramp, after polishing the ramp, she ate up everything I threw at her.

    Accuracy is dead on (for me!) and I'm glad to say that the pistol I built is more accurate than I am. More than I can ever ask for.


    Sporting her cowboy getup haha!
