    Had the 2nd gen 19 frame for a bit and needed a slide assembly for it. Well I picked up the 19 slide assembly from a fellow GT'er. After getting the slide, it went right off to Lou over at Business End Customs for some CereKote.

    I do the frame work, but haven't gotten into the finishing yet. I have known Lou for a while and Business End does some excellent work. I received the slide back in a little over a week and the finish is perfect.

    I the slide came today and I got it all back together right before work. Just left the range an typical Glock performance 300 various rounds, no issues and no erratic ejections.

    Here are a few crappy cell phone picks till I get some good ones. The color is Burnt Bronze, with a touch of Black added in. The pictures don't do it justice. It is a dark earth tone and darker than it looks in the pictures.
    No flak on the sights, I threw them on just to get by till my new set of HD's arrive. Enjoy. TXPO

    Thinking I might do the same with my frankenglock I have a gen 3 lower with a gen 2 upper and it has the matte finish with some wear. Now I just need to decide OD or FDE...

    Yeah It's a 220 Ameriglo pro front sight. Designed for the Idot series. I was gonna go that route but decide to just throw a nother set of HD on to match my duty pistol. I am gonna swap slides back and forth bewtween the two. I also prefer to keep the same sight picture with my active duty off duty weapons. TXPO

    I keep talking myself out of getting you to do a grip chop/reduction on my 2nd gen 19 or 23. I was thinking about trading one of them for a 26 but the more I look at your work.................................
    the more I like the look. And yes, I know this one is not a chopped grip.
    What is your turnaround these days?

    Ever have someone walk up and knock on your window while you were playing with your Glock :whistling:
    I had a woman come out of nowhere and knock on the window while I was doing a traffic complaint one night, scared the crap out of me. I still don’t know where she came from. Good looking pistol.

    I have had folks wander up on stops and such. Some folks just don't understand.

    I can't resist the urge to do a reduction and grip work so I am selling this 2nd gen frame and looking for a 3rd gen frame.

    I simply prefer the reduced frames to even the 2nd gens. I can't bring myself to butcher up a mint condition 2nd gen frame so that's why I'm selling this one off.

    I am running a huge back log right now. This summer has been terribly busy and has really cut down shop time so I am not taking in anything until August. TXPO
