This was the second of my Selection Series builds. While not my typical style most see from me, this was my second ever blued gun done in house as well as my first attempt at handmade grips. Learned a lot from both and look forward to applying it to the next Selection Build.

Some highlights
20 LPI at 90 degree on the Front/back, mag release and Spring Cap
New Top Pattern
Thinned Chen Magwell
PVD CrN coated accents


While I thought this was pretty nice as it was the owner decided he needed it a little different configuration. I'll post the new look later on. Till then please enjoy the old version.

The Chris James style is unmistakable. There's a lot to digest with this build. I like the subtle difference from other builders in the way the ball cuts terminate at the dust cover.

Two relatively minor differences and I would be happy as a pig in the sunshine - an EGW or Wilson ambi (I'm a lefty) and a little more chamfer on the hammer hole for that look that I love so much. Everything else about it would stay as is.

I'm married to a lefty and sired one. You have my sympathies. :D
I'm with you on the hammer but it is a ring hammer and my fav so I'll let it pass.
