    not sure which I admire most, the checkering, the forward cocking serrations , the finely blended beavertail.....

    I wish it were mine....

    wish i could pony up enough to meet the reserve :whistling:

    Hey, those are some nice grips. Made from some sort of wood, or root?

    i can only imagine the quality of the customized feed ramp matches the awesome work reflected elsewhere on the pistol....

    The speed holes in the trigger look hand done in the close up. Don't see that everyday.

    "Modified" drop in beavertail. Most have a bad gap. The MSH looks nice, about the only thing on that gun.

    C'mon dude, that's the new Hammerhead grip safety. Much cooler than a beavertail. :whistling:

    I am gratified that pos still hasn't been unloaded.

    It doesn't look like there is much salvageable there.

    Looks like a Chuck Rogers gun after 3 martinis.
