    Man, that's a sweet gun. Looks like St. Judes will be getting a nice check when that baby sells. Going to a good cause and someone is gonna have a really nice gun.

    Beautiful pistol for an even better cause!! I have the utmost respect for any professional that donates their talent to help a worthy cause. Thumbs up for the whole Heinie operation and everybody else who worked on or contributed to this project! I hope this pistol fetches a ton of money...

    Top to bottom that's just stunning. The grips really top it off too.

    If bac and Quack won't bid, maybe I could afford it. "Bac n' Quack" what a pair! I love this forum. You guys are the best...generous with your time, words and...soon to be generous with your money. I know all of us lust for this gun and someone will get a real keeper. More importantly, the kids at St. Jude will benefit. It's a two-fer!!!

    Very handsome, but would it have been too much trouble to polish the frame flats to match the slide like Colt used to do?

    Guess that was not part of the build plan.
    Personally,....I think that Springer is PERFECTION!

    Obviously not part of the plan. I saw another high end gun finished the same way so it seems to be an accepted style. Also saw a gun with the slide engraved but not a mark on the receiver. That one looked even more unbalanced to my eye.

    This would be as good a place as any to ask how I pronounce this name?

    1.) Heeny
    2.) Hiney?
