    Had Chris at Metaloy install a new Wilson MSH and Speed Chute on a gun he'd hardchromed awhile back. I had forgotten that the Kimber MSH was plastic when I had originally sent it in, so I got a real one :rofl: put on along with the magwell that this gun just needed. Never got around to posting pics of it though. Chris does some great work.

    I don't like you very much Joe.:tongueout: It looks good.

    Can you tell the difference between the plastic and metal MSH?

    glock 2740,

    Could you post a couple of pics from the bottom. I'm wanting to see what it looks like with and without a mag(47D if you got one).


    It looks GOOD by the way!

    Thanks!


    Do you have one looking into the magwell? I'm just wondering how wide the magwell is. I just bought a TLE II and this is on my list. Just haven't decided if I want to go with the Wilson or the S&A one?


    By the way, I live in NW AR and I think we need to go shoot that thing!

    Ethically I can't compliment a Kimber. However, nice HC MSH and MW:rofl::tongueout::supergrin:
