    Had Chris put a 30LPI Wilson MSH and Speed Chute on my hardchromed Kimber Custom Target II after having the parts fitted and hardchromed to match. That's all that gun needed was a magwell. It had a 25LPI MSH on it, but the front strap is stippled and the 30LPI was gonna match a little better. That about having the MSH stippled, but since the original builder, John Vincent at Hallston Custom hand stippled it, I was worried about trying to get a good match. Can't wait to get my baby back and go run some rounds through her tomorrow. Here she is before. I'll post some pics of it tomorrow with the new HC'd magwell.

    Thanks. I don't know why I never had a magwell on it to begin with, but once I picked it up from Metaloy and got it home, I kicked myself for having put a magwell on it before. Oh well. Live and learn. :)

    Makes me want my Metaloy pistols to come that much sooner.

    Chris does great work. You won't be dissapointed. And what a great bguy to work with too. I'm gonna swing by his shop and pick mine up tomorrow. Always fun to shoot the **** with Chris when I visit his shop.

    No, I had too many clowns at the circus to herd today. They knew I was leaving at lunch and I think they were secretly planning to jump bail on me after I left. :rofl:So, I'm gonna head on over to see Chris tomorrow, then head home.

    You know if you carry that thing.... it will rust immediately?? :whistling: :cool:

    Really dig the stippling and Metaloy always seems to do a really good job.
