    Just picked this up in a trade from E5MC here on the board. I have to say I am impressed initially by Dave Helton's work. He does a good job. Here is a list of everything that was done to it:

    Checker @ 25LPI
    Kart Barrel & Bushing
    Heinie rear sight
    Berryhill ignition
    Bullet Proof slide lock
    Bullet Proof extractor
    Bullet Proof ejector, drilled and pinned
    Wilson thumb safety
    Serrate rear of slide
    Flat trigger
    NightHawk 25LPI MSH/Magwell
    Finished all Black

    Even though it is cold (for Texas) I am going go try and put some rounds through it this afternoon.

    Yes. The gun has never been fired, before or after the work!

    Just got back from shooting it. I only shot 100 rounnds but did not have any feeding problems. I did not like my Les Baer mags (would not lock back on last round) but my Wilson and Nighthawk mags worked fine. It is not as accurate as my Guncrafter No Name, but I could keep an entire magainze in the A zone of an IPSC target freehand at 25 yards. Good enough for me.

    I am not sure about the "Quack" trigger yet either. I am going to shoot it a little more before changing it out.

    MOAR GUN PRON!!!!!!!!!

    Very nice BlayGlock!!!! I regret letting mine go, but this is almost exactly what I would have wanted to do to mine. Those Shredder's look pretty good on it as well!
