    A 'mild' build. I find it quite attractive.
    I know the owner frequents this board, but I have no idea if he
    posts.
    The grip safety tangs have been recontoured and softened per his
    instructions. The hammer was bobbed to suit.
    More pics as they are taken.

    I have taken note of your work on here before, and am quite impressed.
    It looks like the slide has been dehorned, but still tastefully old school
    I hate the look of melt jobs for the most part.

    I'm not a fan of the rounded and mainspring housing and frame bottom, but you made it work. All in all a classic piece that anyone should be proud to own and carry.

    The colt is the heat!!!! The simpler builds have really grown on me over the last year or two. Great work.

    That looks like something a Navy SEAL would have tucked in an IWB holster. :thumbsup:

    Denali,

    The Springer hardly qualifies as a 'build':
    High cut and golfball frontstrap.
    Supply and install bobtail mainspring housing.
    Golfball mainspring housing.
    Cerakote frame and related parts.

    Just a little window dressing!

    :cool:

    Hey Chuck, in the top picture is that a piece of 135 rail or 175?
    (How many people would know that?)

    The detail on that hammer is just beyond cool.
