    But I did talk with the CS about something else and was told they received my CC back from Ionbond today. They just need to do the final assembly so I should have it by next week. Merry Christmas to me.

    :supergrin:


    Dave told me it looked awesome so I can't wait. Only took about 11 months start to finish.

    I made a few changes during this build, but I wanted it to be perfect. The only problem I had was getting the vertical rear serrations. I was told they didn't offer them, but then they could, then couldn't, etc. They eventually said they could do it as a custom slide so hopefully that will be true.



    Final Specs:

    Custom fit slide(GI Vertical serrations ) to national match frame
    Custom fit match Kart barrel & EGW thick flange bushing and plug
    Vickers action components(ring hammer)
    10-8 flat trigger
    EGW slide stop w/FBI nub
    Tuned for total reliability
    Pinned extended ejector
    Extra Fitted extractor
    GI recoil system
    Custom fit beavertail grip safety tuned for max sensitivity
    Extended thumb safety, non ambi
    Low mount 10-8 U-notch (.140”) rear sight
    Dovetail ramped front tritium sight w/white OL
    Heinie Magwell opened to max
    Chen MS housing
    Ion Bond DLC entire pistol
    “Golf Ball” Grip Treatment
    “Radical Carry Bevel” complete pistol
    10-8 mag release
    Ball cuts












    I do like what they can do, hopefully the storm cloud over my head calms down.

    I am going to compare the Heinie MW to the Chen that's getting installed on my Baer.

    Hopefully it won't come to that, but I still have another CC on order you could call dibs on. It is a simple build with Metaloy HC.


    :tongueout:






    I was told no at first, but after numerous emails, Dave said it could be done. I just had to pay for the time? to change/set-up the mill to do the cuts.

    I have been nervous on this, but since I paid the extra $, everything should be fine. If not, I may pop a blood vessel.
