    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:

    a Springfield (duh) .38 Super Mil-spec (PB9113L) along with a 9mm hi-cap (with Nowlin barrel) that were worked over by the SACS. the slide's and frames are interchangeable

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

    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:
